Re: Rogers Question

Another note on true Cleveland (ie pre-CBS) drums that you may already know - they will have solid gray paint. If its speckled paint, its an old Cleveland paper tag being used up.

Re: Slingerland tom air vent MIA

I guess in hindsight my comment above should only be applied to WFL and pre-69 Ludwig drums, which went into the molds with the wraps already attached. Thus a finish-ply drum which gets wrapped later...

Re: Slingerland tom air vent MIA

Yes, that's why its always a head-fit risk when wrapping drums that were originally laquered/painted. Some will cut the wrap down slightly from the bearing edge, but even that brings it's own issues...

Re: A Record for Extra Holes

Probably not, but I certainly could see the difference!

I think the seller is right, cutting it down for a snare shell is the way to go. But heck no @ $350.

Re: Re-stain or not?

There's absolutely nothing visually unattractive about your drum; looks appropriately worn and used. However, it's yours, and you should do what you wish.

I suggest, before you go full-strip, to...

Re: Rogers 14" floor tom sale question

I put the ad up on DFO and several FB groups. It sold through a LW collectors FB page.

I have never sold on Ebay, due to the previously mentioned 'buyer-is-always-right' policy. I used to sell on...

Re: Rogers 14" floor tom sale question

You are selling yourself short (pardon the pun) if you settle for less than $800 on a no-issues 14x14. Frankly I would ask more.

I currently have two Rogers ohio kits with 14x14's, and one kit...

Re: Did Camco drums ever not have vent holes?

I have an Oak Lawn WMP tuxedo 12 14 20 kit with a matching snare - the snare has no badge, but does have the key holder, which I suppose suffices as a vent. But I believe this is seen as a factory...

Re: Original Dynasonic Still Valuable

I, along with certainly quite a number of us, was watching that auction and prepared to bid. I think there were too many question marks for it to go any higher. Yes, I agree with you that it likely...

Re: Are these Tama Imperialstar concert toms?

Those are definitely Tamas. I assume they are imperial stars that have lost their original wrap. Those concert toms had smaller rectangular badges not at all like the ones on double sided toms.

Re: Slingerland Re-wrap opinions

Yes, now that the damage has been done, I'm afraid your original question is completely moot.

If at this point you are wishing to maximize re-sale value, you should sell them as-is. There is no...

There's not a single thing listed there that is worth even half what is being asked. Why would anyone buy at those prices? I imagine that lee county and matt's pickens (and counterhoop) in the end...

Re: Identifiaction wood type? - Tama Royal Star Japan

That fancy striped paint always fools lots of us. Look, it goes through the bearing edge profile. Clearly not the grain of the ply.

Re: Question for Rogers experts

Yeah, there's a guy on DFO who's trying to trade a Fullerton WMP 14x18 bop kit for a Camco.

Re: Question for Rogers experts

You see, this is why the first pic causes confusion, because you claim it comes with two CoB non-Dynas, yet the picture clearly shows a CoB Dyna.

Re: Question for Rogers experts

CoB non-dynas would be Powertones, awesome 8 lug snares. I assume your first pic is a 'just like Johnny's kit' pic.

Re: 60's Rogers Floor Tom s/n label - markings?

Congrats on finding a Cleveland 16 to match your kit.

The DS is undoubtedly the initials of a previous owner.

And you can't accurately date a drum by the serials when Holiday is typed in....

Re: Today is a Sad Days, the Deal I missed out on.

Hey Mikey, that Rogers SGR b&b definitely looks to be a 16.

Keep up the hunt!

Re: Need opinions on Ludwig Supra

That should run well north of $350.
