Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

I've had several of my vintage MIJ kits re-edged, professionally. They squared the shells up (these shells are rarely true), and then re-cut the edges. I've had 30's and 45's, with round over,...

Re: Craviotto Nickel Over Brass #2/5 Black Diamond Snare - $6000 shipped

Rarity often doesn't equal $$$. This is a common myth. You're right, the market does set the outcome...which is why its been dropped by 50%. The market changes.

Re: MIJ Drums with Die-Cast Hoops

I've used my John Grey 6 lug die cast hoops on a few of my vintage MIJ snares. Sounds great. Adds more volume, and 'pop', imo.

One year later...still not sold, still $14,000. I'm sure there's no correlation.

Re: Vintage Premier 2000 Snare Drum 68/69 Great Cond

Nice, COB. My understanding is the beer barrel hoops and badge are the marks to look for.

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

That's perfectly fair for you to do. I respect that. This is the beautiful thing about being able to have individual opinions.

That being said, the seller must be a crackhead.

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

I have many vintage MIJ kits (one of my Star kits is in the gallery section), and belong to numerous vintage MIJ groups. That price is insane. Even by Reverb standards.

Re: Early 1970ís Star/pre TAMA

Very cool, Sean. Those COW kits are kinda rare. I have a 70's Slingerland COW set, very heavy haha. Love it, though. Cheers.
