Re: The Magic of Ringo

I’m with you, JR. Due to Covid I have been doing remote recording with friends alot lately. Try to play “Ticket to Ride.” During the verse, the last snare flam of each pattern is somewhere between...

Re: Ludwig Club Date

I don’t see holes for a rail mount. Never had one?

Re: Pearl tom stand

Sorry, I don’t have the stand you seek. But I did have those exact toms back in the day. Loved ‘em! Fiberglass, right? I have no idea how, when or why we parted ways. (sob)

Re: Ludwig Rail Arm Help-Am I doing something wrong?

I think Mr. DownTownFarmer is on to something. Mine looks much like yours, but there is a subtle difference. Note the crease in the first photo. From the side, mine looks very much like yours but...

Re: Tom Placement

JR,
I have the same set as you and noticed the same badge issue. I used to be against using a tom on a stand, thinking that it moved it too far away, and that I should use the mount cuz that was...

Leedy,
I recently recovered a drum with Precision’s “Charcoal Pearl.” Here it is posing with my 1957 WFL New Yorker. The New Yorker is Sky Blue Pearl which, contrarily, darkened over the years...

Re: Sonor Teardrop

I believe it’s referred to as TV wrap, because it resembles the horizontal lines of an old CRT television. Don’t think that was the official name for it, though.

Re: Weird stand??

Agree with Mark. Combination of:
1. Slingerland straight cymbal stand
2. Slingerland boom arm with counterweight
3. Two Pearl wingnuts
4. Somebody with spare time on their hands.

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

I followed this guy’s technique to bring back a green light blue pearl tom back to light blue. It may work for paint removal too.

Re: Slingerland Black Diamond Pearl

I was a purist and would not use a snare stand at any cost. I thought it looked terrible. Then I finally tried it. The position was slightly improved, as was the flexibility to move it more...

Re: Would You

Hmm. The only negatives I see are the bass drum: extra holes from a saddle mount and missing one hoop inlay strip. Positives: champagne sparkle, 14” FT. I don’t think $900 is unreasonable. Just my...

Re: Rogers Hi Hat Clutch SCREW

Poetman,
I have one or two that look like that. Can you try and determine what the thread size is?

I’ll be happy to mail it to you if I have it.

Re: Is there any interest in Marchers anymore?

Speaking only for myself, I have no qualms whatsoever of using one in place of a floor tom,
But I would have no use for a marching snare as a snare.

You don’t happen to have a sky blue pearl...

Re: Good Price on Acro

Thanks, all. A semi-local (an hour away) wants $150. Not really in the market for a snare, but if it was a steal, I would steal it.

Gonna pass. Too far to travel.
