Re: Rarest of the pearls

Re: Dream Cymbals?

The problem with telling someone who is buying their first set, to buy a used A is that, unless they know what to look for, they will become instantly confused by all the different kinds of A's. I...

Re: Why Play Vintage?

Re: Rarest of the pearls

IF citrus mod, psych red and mod orange are to be considered as an "oyster" pearl finish, then I'd put them right there with oyster pink...especially the citrus mod as being the rarest of the oyster...

Re: Rarest of the pearls

Yeah no one said that black oyster is rare. The OP asked which is the most sought-after. And I answered that I think black oyster is the most sought after BECAUSE of Ringo. So there ya go.

Re: Rarest of the pearls

Re: Why doesn't anyone reverse engineer old K's?

But aren't there other aspects to the old Ks that transcend the sound? They LOOK beautiful, as well...and I don't really SEE any cymbals that look like old K's....wondering about that, as well.

Why doesn't anyone reverse engineer old K's?

This is probably a naive question...but humor me..

There are enough broken/cracked/unusable old K's around to melt a few down and analyze the molecular elements in the "secret" alloy...right?...

Re: $475 to ship a drum set???

Yeah, it's ridiculous. And if you sell on eBay, they also gouge you...and PayPal takes a snip, too. It's no wonder that the actual value of an object has to be overblown these days. Otherwise, it...

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement

Since there were no collectors when these so-called "running changes" were in effect, it doesn't really matter to collectors, now. Most collectors look for the most ideal and pristine examples they...

Re: Slingerland vent/badge placement
