Re: Just out of curiosity...

It's what I am...and the type of Peavey kit that I play.

Re: Ludwig "Mickey Mouse" drum key

I agree, and suggest that "not determining which side" would refer to the orientation of the barrel more so than the left or right ear. Note that the stamping on the key on the right in the pic is...

Re: Good cheap gram scale?

Had to find this from an earlier post of mine last year....I use a SOEHNLE kitchen scale that I got some years ago at someplace like WalMart (can't recall exactly where). Its limits are 6 lbs, 10...

Re: Drummers over 6 ft tall!!!

Thanks for the compliment on the kit. The colour was a do-it-yourself stain and clear-coating project last year and, Yes, it is a very cozy set-up. My sitting postion is fairly high and everything is...

Re: Drummers over 6 ft tall!!!

I'm a little over 6' and weigh between 205-210 lbs. Not overly big by some standards, but thought I'd mention it for reference purposes. The first shot is an overhead of my previous kit, the latter...

Re: Im looking at some hats

I haven't been in the Vintage Cymbal section of this forum for some time so have been reading with interest some of the more recent threads. Weighing cymbals and writing their weight on the underside...

Re: Vintage Zildjian Recommendations?

I agree that there is a lot more than weight that goes into the sound of a cymbal and, by extension, results in a cymbal sounding good to one person and perhaps not so great to another. Also, I...

Re: Vintage Zildjian Recommendations?

I've also been looking for a K Custom Dark 18" crash but haven't come across any yet. As mentioned earlier, I don't like the sound of the new ones so am hoping to find something used. Other than...

Re: Vintage Zildjian Recommendations?

You might want to consider some late '50s or early '60s A's. Until two years ago, I played with two late '50s 20" rides, one of which I used as a left-side crash ride. Very sweet sounding, good stick...

Re: Peavey Radial drums

Those are the original tom arms, although the memory locks should be at the bottom where they belong and the toms are mounted for a left-handed drummer. Unfortunately, everything gets turned around...

Re: Peavey Radial drums

Doesn't sound like that great a deal considering that I bought a Radial Pro 501 5-pc kit in March 2009 which, in addition to having the snare, also included the bass pedal, snare stand, hi-hat stand,...

Re: Storing hi-hat, connect or disconnect?

My kit is always set up and I do exactly the same thing. It takes no time at all to reset the cluth and engage the strainer. I use a Ludwig Atlas II hi-hat stand, Model L-1126 B/O Label. My hats are...

Re: How high is your hi-hat from the floor?

My hats are 35 1/2" from the floor, which leaves them 5 1/2" above the snare. That still leaves me 3 1/2" of rod above the clutch, upon which I mount a tamborine about 1 1/2" from the top. I prefer a...

Re: Cymbal setups

Except for my hi-hats, which are 15" Avedis Zildjians from the early 60's, I've changed over to Zildjian K Custom Dark cymbals within the last year and a half. Specifically from right to left (see...

Re: Show us your workhorse snare

I have two snares and I use both interchangeably. The 1963 Dyna-Sonic I've had since I bought my first kit in 1963 and the 1994 RBS-1 since I acquired and refurbished an RBS-1 kit earlier this year.

Re: Zildjian Cymbol ID

1 1/4" logo would suggest late 50's but the Zildjian Co line isn't more deeply stamped than the other lines. Therefore, I'm thinking early 70's. Might the logo be 1 3/16"? You also mentioned in your...

Re: Show us your re-finished and re-wrapped drums

Further to my other post (#31) I've just completed refinishing my 1994 RBS-1 kit. This kit originally had a transparent black rubbed oil finish (alcohol-based toners w/ stain added and topped with...

Re: Show us your re-finished and re-wrapped drums

This 2001 kit may not quite be 'vintage' but it has nonetheless been unwrapped and refinished. I'm currently refinishing a 1994 RBS-1 kit and will post pictures of it when done. The pictures here are...

Re: Help!!! Drum finishes!

I used MinWax's Polycrylic Clear Gloss when I refinished my kit, which I stained first. Very pleased with the results. What you see in the pics represents 8 coats.
