Re: Need lug identification help

I don’t think that it’s a Star 924 lug. I have polished two full kits worth of those. Maybe a Trixon?

Re: Ludwig hoop repair SOS

They make metal clips with grip material on them that slip over the hoop where the bass drum pedal attaches to prevent clamp damage to the wooden hoop. Possibly you could use one to bridge the...

Re: Let's see your drum room!!

The best name for a drum room ever...The Drumgeon! VDF member J!m has trademarked it though, so you can always call it your beat laboratory like the movie Step Brothers.

Re: Cleaning Red Sparkle Wrap

Re: Rogers Mardi Gras that got away.

I did hear back again from the seller last night. He told me that the drums were "tentatively sold" and that he would contact me if it falls through. That may fit with the out of town buyer story.

Hi Dave...damn I was hoping it might have gone to you.

Re: Ludwig stainless B/O kit "barn find"
