Re: Gold Sparkle Pioneer

So you will put a piece on top of the dowel and push the dowel in.
That should work and if you...

Re: Gold Sparkle Pioneer

Just my opinion but I would leave it the way it is.
Beautiful snare , I would be scared something would happen in the process.
It is part of the snare's history that really can't be changed.

Re: Leedy snare drum....

I think the color might be "Colonial Gold Finish"
although I never seen one yet but might be a good chance that is what you have.
The strainer is called a "Speed way" I believe and was introduced...

Oh yeah forgot to mention that floor is a 14x16 deep which I believe is unique to W&A sets.

Re: Ludwig Club Date ? 100.00?

That's a great looking kit.
Cleaned up nicely.
Bet it sounds great too.
Sky Blue is a nice wrap once you see it in person it wows.

Re: Camco sighting "Fanny" circa 1972

Cool find, thanks never heard of them
She has an original walnut set with what looks like a 2nd Ludwig blue sparkle floor.
Nice, if this is in 1971 probably a Chanute set.

Re: Camco

Rims do not look correct.
The drums look like they have been stripped including the chrome on the lugs.
Legs are not original Camco legs either.

Re: Kit I.D. Help (Please)

From what I can see looks like a Rocker2 due to inside shell coating.
Also U.S.A. made (the badge says USA on it)
That’s usually how you can tell.
Something weird about that bass drum to me...

I do believe he said it is brass. But either way I would leave it.

Re: Ludwig Snare ID Help...

I think if it has 12 lugs it would be the Coliseum.
If not could be the Rock/Concert model
the date is correct 84ish like K.O. mentions.
can't tell by pics if 12 lugs.

Re: Camco drumset

Camco was associated with Rogers in the 50's and 60's.
The catalogs had Camco hardware in them.
In my opinion I do think Camco were built better in the same era.
I have a late 50's Rogers which I...

Re: Camco drumset

the quality of build , edges and lack of mass production of the Camco's I think make them valuable, also the unique sound.
