Re: Sonor Force Custom

Re: All Night Long: check it out

Re: Istanbul Ride 20"

Yes, an early one, but I don't think the earliest. I had a 22 with a stenciled logo, so I have to believe it was earlier, before they started screen printing their logos on the cymbals.

Re: Is this for real?

It was a 10, 12, 14, 20. Someone got a steal.

REPRO: Shell Hardware, Beavertails, Single-flanged COB hoops, Claws (bass & tom/snare

OK, so this stuff isn't vintage, but it is vintage repro, so might be desirable to do a vintage looking build-out.

Re: Slingerland COB 2 to 1 snare

DFD doesn't currently advertise a 6-hole snare side, but if you send them a note, they might be able to help.

Re: Worthy Project? - Big Beat Set?

Just to be clear about the mix, off the shelf bleach solution is typically 5% or 6% out of the bottle. A 0.5% Hypochlorite (bleach) solution is recommended by the CDC for decontamination. 1 part 5%...

Re: Ludwigs in black paint?

Maybe it's the pic, but that doesn't look like an original black duco. Looks refinished, but it's not a good pic, so I might be all wet.

Re: Snare Beds
