Re: Price check on 18 Gretsch SSB bass drum

Yeah, I'd probably pay that for them just to resell them for more money (after I recorded with them, maybe!) ;).

And I always get nervous around those Rogers collets -whether they are the...

Re: Price check on 18 Gretsch SSB bass drum

I won't argue any of that. That kind of stuff bugs me. Maybe I just have OCD.

Re: Price check on 18 Gretsch SSB bass drum

I'll bet they sound great. That bass drum is pretty rare. Too bad they messed up the collector value....but the player value is high. Probably a fair price to someone who has been looking for one for...

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Some drums that are super-collectible now (Trixon Telstar and Speedfire for example) are collectible simply because they came from a time when there were a lot of experimental ideas that were as much...

Re: What is the difference between ludwig atlas and hercules?

I dunno....tucking the wrap into the scarf joint was also pretty bad.

Re: What's with the insane asking prices on Reverb?

When it comes to vintage sets that were/are common -such as the Ludwig Super Classic configuration, then condition is everything. Any alteration or damage is going to devalue such a kit, greatly....

Re: Spray-on head texture

My Ruff-Kote story is this:

I've always been that kid who took care of his stuff, so when I got my first kit (a Tempro), I was meticulous about taking care of it. However, my young mind couldn't...

Re: How can I salvage this kit?

That poor thing! :(

Well, the bass drum is trashed -in MY opinion. I only say that because there are a few VERY dedicated woodworking experts who might be able to do something....but for the...

Re: Favorite Bass Drum sound/recording?

I like the sound of this little Ludwig Jazzette kit Alphonse Mouzon is playing. Even though he has the front head off, he gets a really big, clear, articulate sound from it....plus, I am a Jazzette...

Re: Contemplating selling my only 2 vintage snare drums

Hey OP

It's not like you wouldn't be able to find a Supra or an Acro on the market if you ever needed one. Those two models of snare drums are probably the two most ubiquitous drums in the world....

Re: Anyone know what this is worth?

It's not going to be worth much because it's not the type of drum that gets used anymore and it's also not in great condition.....maybe ~$100 on a good day.

Re: Any ideas what this Snare drum is?

I presume that the drum is 14" in diameter? Is that correct?

If so, the fact that is has 8 t-rods (as opposed to 6) and the fact the shell is made of oak and is "full-size" 14" diameter (not a...

Re: Any ideas what this Snare drum is?

Probably 1920's-30's....but they made these drums into the 1940's, as well. I have a Ludwig Junior kit with a similar-type of single-tension T-rods on both the bass drum and the snare drum. It is...

Re: Any ideas what this Snare drum is?

BTW....

Those t-tods are single-tension. They aren't attached to the shell so it makes no difference if they are upside down or right side up as far as the tuning. Unless they are attached to the...

Re: Any ideas what this Snare drum is?

Need to see the snare strainer and more details....inside of the shell, heads, etc.

I've got several similar drums -most were built as student drums or economy models by companies like W&A and...

Re: Blue Ripple Dyna on eBay

The bottom line on all of these rare drums is that the price is what someone out there is willing to pay. You never know what kind of nostalgic feelings something like this might bring out in...

Re: Blue Ripple Dyna on eBay

I'd never pay that price for a resto.

If it was all original and in perfect condition, then sky's the limit...but not this.
