Re: Another High Priced Vintage Kit For Sale

Not so odd - first pic shows white-hot sun bouncing off the floor; that's going to kick off that FT, and look different, from every angle except the rear.


It's a gorgeous kit and man I love...

Re: Another High Priced Vintage Kit For Sale

I noticed that too. Pretty disappointing since, as far as retractable BD spurs go, Rogers were the best/sturdiest IMHO.



I've seen the odd MIJ snare listed for $300.00 or $500.00 up here in...

Re: Slingerland-to buy or not to buy

Good call it's possible and even likely the blue backdrop is playing a part. Still it does look like a daylight shot which can be a bit blue. More of a general thing when looking at drum pics - check...

Re: Think you're flexible??

I'd have to say I'm pretty rigid on no power-toms. OTOH every drummer has at least one - the floor tom! :)

Re: Slingerland-to buy or not to buy

We know that Remo drum heads are a creamy, off-white colour. The heads in the pic up top have a blue-ish cast, therefore we know that the drums are more yellow or creamy than they appear in the pic....

I love the old P-100s, love how I can get them for 20 bucks, and the bouncy action. The real cheap ones tho often have no beater-angle adjustment, just the rocker fixed in place with flat-spots on...
