Re: Where to buy 7 tension rods for club date kick?

Wow, that's actually a lot less than I thought they would cost. I'd have guessed 6 dollars or so. Good information! Thanks!

Re: Where to buy 7 tension rods for club date kick?

Yes, they will likely be expensive no matter where you look. You will probably have to bite the bullet and pay the asking price.

Re: Shipping box recommendations for snare drums

I always save any bubble wrap and also those little air bags that people use for shipping stuff. It sure beats the mess of the styrofoam pellets, which can shift around during shipment.

Re: Mystery potentially eastern european snare drum

The wood looks like red oak, to me. It appears that the shell was cut down to its present size, from a larger drum. Likely an experiment.

Re: There Comes a Time

You know...being a drummer in the world is a very, VERY rare talent. I did a quick search: "How many drummers are in the world?" The answer was roughly something like 3.5 million. Then I did a search...

Re: There Comes a Time

Not a downer at all man. It happened to me almost the same way. Gigging became a young man's job around here and I got an image of me being "that guy" who stays too long at the party. It was time for...

Re: Cleaning Wrap - Gretsch Nitro White

Hello and welcome!

In my experience, there isn't much that can be done for UV fading. Those pigments have been altered forever on a molecular level! However, there may be some new restoration...

Re: Looking for a wrapper SF Bay

Aaahhh...Understood.

Re: Looking for a wrapper SF Bay

Hi and welcome!

Was your Jazzette originally wrapped? Or, was it a natural, wood finish? Just so you know, any alteration of your Jazzette will greatly reduce its value if you ever decide to sell...

Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

I felt lucky to have gotten any drum set at all. Where I grew up, you basically had the choice of inheriting the ranch or working for the guy who inherited the ranch.

I wanted a Ludwig kit more...

Re: Rip talker hawkins

I hope this doesn't come across as being out of line or anything, but....I actually had a good friend who grew up with dyslexia. When he wrote stuff, it often came out kinda jumbled or whatever....

Re: How I celebrated my 68th birthday!

Ohhh man! I feel your pain! I had shingles on the right side of my neck that went onto my ear. It felt like someone hit me in the head with a red-hot baseball bat. I couldn't sleep for several days....

Re: Advice on Selling Bass Drums

Well, good thing the forum isn't for dignifying motives. That sounds like a job for church or something! :)
Anyway, OP, the bass drums look really nice and if yo want to sell them, then I'd think...

Re: Advice on Selling Bass Drums

Re: Advice on Selling Bass Drums

Well, that's one pic and, from what I can see, they appear to be in great shape. What size are they? I'm assuming 22 X 14.

Re: Warped Wuhan China Cymbals?

Hi. Can you post a picture showing the warp? I don't think it's really going to matter much with a Wuhan China type because they are built to be funky.

Re: Well I did it champagne for

Interesting...MY 1967 Downbeat kit's bass drum has gull-wing spurs. Yours has spikes.
