Re: Rogers 14" floor tom sale question

Why don't you go for the gold? List it with Sotherby's for a reserve price of $3,000. (sarcasm alert)

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

That's correct. As a working drummer back in the late fifties and all through the sixties, I didn't care about which types of wood were used for making the drum shells as long as it wasn't that ...

Re: This is the Display Your Rewrapped Vintage Drums Thread

If I'm remembering correctly, wasn't the "cortex" wrap a countertop laminate suitable for vertical applications?

Re: Slingerland 14x14 Green Sparkle

The "wrong" model snare according to catalog-correct obsession. However, ANY snare drum that the player prefers is the "right" snare drum for any drum set. I think that a survey of 100 drummers would...

Re: My Newest Slingerland Acquisition!

Mark...That little six-lugger Slingerland snare is incredibly clean. You already know that I love good six-lugger snare drums. This Slingy would be at the top of that list.Do you have a matching drum...

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

Rogers used what is known in the paint trade as trunk paint. I don't think that there is any real mojo to the type of paint that any of the drum manufacturers used. It's effing paint.

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

I remember reading that Ludwig used plain old white fence paint.

Re: Slingerland 14x14 Green Sparkle

Re: Slingerland 14x14 Green Sparkle

I think that I asked you before if that ten-lug bass drum was a 14x20. If it was/is a 20" ten-lug bass drum, that was once my drum set. I don't have seller's remorse even though I wish that I still...

Re: TWO RARE 1940s-50s SLINGERLAND 4x13 "BE BOP" RADIO KINGS

I know that the wrap on mine is new, and the shell may be unoriginal. But all of the metal parts seem to be correct and original. Whatever the case, this drum will never leave my possession.

Re: TWO RARE 1940s-50s SLINGERLAND 4x13 "BE BOP" RADIO KINGS

Here's the 4x13 Radio King snare drum given to me as a retirement gift by the owner and his staff at Rockin Robin in Houston after being their Fender rep for 27 years. They have a great selection of...

Re: The 14x14 Remains Highly Sought

K.O.'s plan to build his own 14x14 appeals to me. If a drummer MUST have a drum of that size to complete his dream drum set for gigging or at home, why not build one for a fraction of the cost of...

Re: Ingenuity in Vintage Land

Either of those options would be good. Or you could place one nut at the end of the conventionally threaded part and a reverse threaded nut at the end of the reverse threaded part. The two nuts would...

Re: Ingenuity in Vintage Land

If one set of the lugs or swivel nuts is reverse-threaded, it makes sense that the tension rods with reverse-direction threads would be tightened in one direction to hold the two shells together....

Re: President set tiger eye

I almost pulled the trigger on this drum set that is located about thirty miles from my house. Then, I remembered that i really don't like the feel and sound of stencil brand drums from this period....

Re: The 14x14 Remains Highly Sought

The 12x15 marching drums are bargain priced floor toms just waiting to be completed. Similar sized marching tenor drums are even more special because they don't have the extra holes for the snare...

Re: Ingenuity in Vintage Land

That's a pretty good deal for those drums. I think that the lugs and threaded rods holding the two blue drums together can stay locked in place with locking nuts at each end. Should we assume that...

Re: Repairing a Camco Aristocrat Strainer.

Thanks, Dolfan. I think that the strainer did have that trapezoid-shaped cover plate. I don't recall ever having problems with the snare drum hardware.

Re: Repairing a Camco Aristocrat Strainer.

If my mid 60s Aristocrat snare drum did not have the round strainer housing as the one on DolFan's drum, what might have been the factory-installed strainer?

Irrespective of our drum sickness, BEC is expressing rational and sensible thinking about this drum show or any social gathering at this stage of the pandemic.

Re: Repairing a Camco Aristocrat Strainer.

The only Camco drum in my collection has the simplest throw off that is one of the most reliable to use. I can't remember if my set of Aristocrats in the mid-1960s had that round throw off housing on...
