Re: Slingerland shell repair

The repairs that JC is performing is proof positive that there's almost no drum to be thrown away when you have the skill to repair it. Had I obtained this drum, I would have immediately deemed it...

Re: Which Rogers

While I was never a fan of the B&B lugs, I'll also cast my vote for the Eagle badge kit. The color looks pretty good on all the drums. The big question; how many of the lugs are cracked?

Re: Picked up my dream drum set today

Hello LeftCoast Drummer... and Welcome to the forum!

I think you got a good deal at $300. Just apply your own sweat and they'll look great! Based on the A and B serial number prefix, your kit is...

Re: Radio King Snare Drum

Hey JR! Nice looking drum. Why is the bracket on the butt side upside-down?

Re: School closing/ dumpster save Dean finds a circa 1938 Sling Radio King almost

Nice find! Looks like it had the extended bridges/butt and a 3-point strainer...with a few additional holes, possibly from a replacement strainer.

Re: dynasonic parts, original or from later

Those lugs, with the C-clip inserts, are correct for the serial number of this Dynasonic.

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

Definitely not a common set. The 14x10 (or 10x14 for many of us!) strikes me as an odd size. Having that huge tom mounted on the consolette of the 20" bass drum certainly isn't my favorite setup! The...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

Concerning what O-Lugs posted, I also noticed the L arm for the rail consolette as not being original. As to the shell layup, it could be maple/poplar/maple. I was basing my layup of...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

Hello Kaplana...and Welcome to the forum!

Based on the serial numbers alone, the kit is possibly very late 60's to early 70's and will have some of the best shells that Ludwig produced, meaning...

Re: Rogers Fullerton Green Label

What would you like us to tell you? The brown has simply faded to green. Just seems like you have a need to believe that this is some rare label.

Re: Slinger 64 red sparkle price reasonable?

Yes, $179 is a good price. About the only thing missing is the gum rubber washer on the Rapid strainer stem. Very common due to age. The rubber dries and rots and just falls apart. Attached is a...

Re: Dating Rogers Holiday kit and Dyna-Sonic snare

Good to know. I was comparing this to my 1972 kit, which yellowed a bit, rather than turning dark.

Re: Dating Rogers Holiday kit and Dyna-Sonic snare

Hello yngbld113...and Welcome to the forum!

Nice kit! What you have is the very popular Headliner kit. I've got the same thing, wrapped in original blue sparkle. Your kit dates to around 1965-66....

Re: 1960ís Slingerland 8 Lug Snare Questions

Definitely not worth that kind of money. It's obvious the store doesn't know drums and thinks that because it's old, it must be expensive. It's a student-level drum and sells accordingly.

This is the exact drum I was thinking it would be. The dropped gate snare-side hoop is required for the snares to fully disengage. Looking at the drum in question, the proper hoop does appear to be...

Re: Slingerland White Satin Flame

Looking back through cataloged kits from the 70's, it does appear that 24" bass drums had 2 pair of spurs. Not sure why your WSF 24" bd only has one set. With Slingerland, anything is possible!

Re: Slingerland White Satin Flame

Hi AlloyBoy!

You did good at $350! Yes, your kit is from 1970-71. As stated above, the interiors were painted white. The interiors would have been the "chocolate milk" interior, not clear maple. ...
