Re: How I celebrated my 68th birthday!

Sorry to hear it, man. Is it just the post-herpetic neuralgia? Or, are you still treating the lesions?

I have a good friend who had a liver transplant and has to be on organ rejection meds for the...

Re: Premier Drums

Johnny,

In my opinion, the older we get, the more nostalgic we get. There isn't much drum-related nostalgia, for me, that involves Premier drums....other than one story about them, when I was in...

Re: Mystery snare drum

VERY close. I can't quite make out the patent date on that one lug, but appears to be Aug 2, 89 (?) which would fall in line with Conn's enterprises.

I had no idea that Conn made such fancy drums,...

That's quite a unique snare stand there, Mike! ...or should I say, "Mic"! ;)

Re: 1925- LEEDY 5 x 15 NOB MULTI-MODEL *MARVEL MODEL

As usual....awesome.

That snare mechanism could be argued as a predecessor of the Rogers Dynasonic design.

Re: elvin gretsch, first 16 bass drum in history?

anecdote:

When I was about 30 years younger, I was at a jazz club in Tacoma, WA, watching an older guy setting up his kit. We were the only ones in the room at the time so I was chatting with him...

Re: 1937 LEEDY 6.5 x 14 ORIENTAL PEARL BROADWAY PARALLEL MODEL

GEEEEZ! Cool drums and what a cool finish! In all honesty, I don't understand how you do it, Mike. It's like your collection comes from a different planet because no one ever sees these drums except...

Hey don't you guys know that ALL drums are equal, nowadays? Oh yea...There's no one brand that's better than any other. If you say that you prefer one brand over another, then it just makes you a...

Re: Mounting two racks toms with virgin bass drum?

Need to know what type of mounting brackets are being used on the toms...L-arm, etc.

Ludwig has a nice L-arm double tom stand...Basically, ALL the manufacturers have a double-tom stand of some...

Re: Drum Brand Preferences

When I see a new kit that is some kind of wine ripple burst fade over figured maple or whatever...I just don't warm up to any of it. The look of a simple red or blue sparkle surpasses those fancy...

My take on this subject is that, as a seller and collector, I KNOW what I have.....And I know what I am willing to sell any of it for....and that is -a LOT of money-! If the recession affects the...

Re: Drum Brand Preferences

It wasn't just about the quality of the drums, themselves. If that was the case, then I believe Rogers would have been at the top of the heap. But....quality was only one facet of the game.

Re: Vintage Tama Titan throne top seat is stuck!

I had to look up what kind of connection there was between the seat and the tripod. It appears to be just a simple, straight sleeve on the inside of the tripod tube that the seat post slides onto and...

I remember seeing a picture of Jack Dejohnette playing a Sonor kit on the back of one of his album covers. I think it was rosewood or possibly ebony. I knew from looking at them, a kit like that was...

Re: Drum Brand Preferences

One thing I will say for Ludwig is that they definitely got it right when they made the Supraphonic. That is still THE snare drum of all snare drums. Get one with a P-83.....perfection!

Re: Drum Brand Preferences

I didn't even know there were other brands of drums when I was a kid. ALL drums were Ludwigs! I'm not even kidding. Every drum in my school's band room was a Ludwig.

Same thing for cymbals....

Re: Best Wires for a Fifteen Inch Ludwig Marcher

Well, a 15 inch Puresound set is probably what I'd go with...but what effect are you going for? If you want a really "tight" snappy bright cutting snare sound that will cut across a football field,...
