Re: My jelly bean kit

Ultimately they are musical instruments and how they sound and integrate with each other is more important than when the drums are from or how they may look.

Re: Identify Black Beauty

Yes I noted that as well. I do not recall when these new keystone badges were introduced but I suspect this drum is not more than several years old. If the price is right it is probably worth getting...

Re: What would make this kit worth $4000???

Let's not exclude the possibility that this guy is not trying to be dishonest and fool anyone. He could just be a bozo who selected images from the internet that looked kind of/sort of look like his...

Re: Ludwig Rail Mount

They are designed for Ludwig hole spacing and fit the holes in my pre serial 22" Superclasic BD perfectly.

Re: Ludwig Rail Mount

I know this may sound like heresy but Steve Maxwell sells reproduction versions of Ludwig rail mounts in both two and four mounting screw versions. I have the four mounting screw version on my WMP...

Re: The WMP Has Arrived

Great looking set! Nice find. What I find interesting is the diversity of parts usage in drums from ostensibly the same period. I have a Super Classic set in WMP circa 1962/1963. Unfortunately there...

Re: A bold prediction about Ludwig.......

Ludwig is in business to make a profit. I'm sure the only reason they stopped making Speed King pedals and supersensitive snare drums is because they weren't selling enough of them to make the...

Re: Future Vintage?

Well, it will end if there is limited availability in the future. And, who can say with any accuracy what might be valued in the future. If I had been able to see into the future and knew what would...

Re: Getting the Logo Off

In my experience I have to disagree. As I said earlier, while I have never tried to remove a logo from FiberSkyn heads, I did remove the logo from a new coated Ambassador BD head completely in just a...

Re: Future Vintage?

We all have our own perceptions on this subject. I've heard a lot of Spizz's over the years and they all sounded great, but few of them sounded anything like Old K's. I've been listening to Istanbul...

Re: Future Vintage?

In my experience there are great jazz cymbals in every period as well as not so great ones (most modern A's excepted). Jazz players generally tend to want a darker, woody stick and a nice complex...

Re: Getting the Logo Off

Goof Off should have worked as well, but as I said earlier I never tried it on a Fiberskyn head,

Edit: Just found this old link here from 2010. In it Vintagemore2000 indicates he removed logos...

Re: Getting the Logo Off

I can't speak to FiberSkyns because I've never tried removing the logos from them. My son has them on the toms of his bop kit but i won't experiment on them without his permission. I can attest to...

Sandpaper? Yuck. Did you try Goof Off or Goo Gone?

Re: Getting the Logo Off

If I recall it was pretty instantaneous. Here is a video of someone using Goof Off, but I think he's using it on a smooth head. Mine was not.

Re: Future Vintage?

New stamps are still desirable and use the same bronze alloy as the older models as far as I know. I personally have read nothing to the contrary. The new stamps and the new new stamps were the last...

Re: Future Vintage?

Keep in mind that not every Old K was a winner. I have a nominally 20" Old K new stamp that looks incredible but sounds like crap, overly bright, metallic, and clangy. And, there are also some new...

Re: Future Vintage?

What about Johnny Craviotto. You don't think his drums 25-50 years in the future might be collectible? Especially the ones he personally signed which I believe is a number of them, including one I...

Re: Getting the Logo Off

You can use Goof Off or Goo Gone. Much safer than acetone and doesn't take the coating off in my experience.

Re: Future Vintage?

I think part of the reason for how collectible 60's drums are is in part due to greater availability. The mahogany Ludwig Super Classics sets from the early '60s are very collectible and not terribly...

Re: Future Vintage?

Some of the small boutique manufacturers, mostly using Keller shells may be collectible in the future since most do not stay in business for very long. Or perhaps future vintage snares from small top...

Re: Future Vintage?

One of the reasons is nostalgia, and I suspect sooner or later people will feel nostalgic about the drums they had in the 80s.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Cymbals

I've never heard a inexpensive beginner/student cymbal worth keeping for the type of music we play which is jazz and bebop. I bought my son a set of ZBTs back in the day when I bought him his first...

Wait another 25 years. That may change.
