Re: Tension rods washer

+1 with the above! Also, Rogers washers have a unique physical appearance. Generic washers are way too big! However, if that's not important to you, they will certainly be cheaper. JP2 Creations...

Re: Hi hat cup replacement

Hey Josh!

I really think this cup is 5/8". If it was larger, it would have been a very loose fit on both my stands. It was a fairly snug fit and worked perfectly. That old Epic stand is an odd...

Re: Hi hat cup replacement

Hi Josh,

Are you certain that the Epic HH tube is 3/4" and not 5/8"? As to the cup from Gibraltar, I've used it on two Slingerland hi hat stands; the Dynamo and #804 flush base stands, both of...

Re: Identify Black Beauty

Very easy to tell from the grommet that the vintage badge was added to make the drum appear to be much older than it is!

Re: Strange seams

Yep, Ludwig had the idea that installing rivets would eliminate the seam pulling apart. Of course, they found out it didn't. It was also just UGLY!! LoLoLoLo

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

I recently received a message from this seller...from a question I asked MONTHS ago! In fact, he had answered that question, so not sure why he answered again!

Re: Ludwig70s supersensative snare repair

Hello Moose... and Welcome to the forum!

As the above post mentions, you need a Ludwig snare-side head to allow the SS mechanism to work properly. These heads have a shallow collar and are still...

Re: Has Anyone Ever Seen a Pearl Pedal with this CAM

Hi Ken!

It's the P800 pedal from about 1982. There was also a later 80's, I believe, with that same wheel, but a different style footboard. Here it is!...

Re: Properly installing a Roger's Drum Badge with Nails.

Hi Nick...and Welcome to the forum!

As CTM above mentioned, I also used a small brass hammer to bend over the nails when attaching the "Rogers" badge to my clone Dynasonic snare drum. I put the...

Re: Head choice

I'll also go with the above recommendations for coated Ambassadors top/bottom. They'll sound great! I will say that if you need a bit more warmth and depth, you can also go with coated Emperors top...

Re: Keystone Reproduction Badges?

This is also what I heard. Too bad, though, as they were great reproduction badges!

Re: Not Your Usual Speed King Question

Hi Steve!

That missing piece is a spring steel finger, designed to keep the connector strap from coming out. I've never seen them being offered as a separate part. With vintage Speed King pedals...

+1! I was fortunate to obtain some of these badges a few years ago for some of my tribute snare drums.

Either the OP hasn't checked back in or prefers not to deal with this anymore. Lately, this has become an all-too common occurrence; a new member joins the family to ask a specific question. Our...

Re: Help Me Identify these Heads

Hello Batard... and Welcome to the forum!

The heads indeed are Remo, but can't tell if they're Ambassadors or Emperors. Due to the heavy hitting involved, my gut tells me they'd be Emperors. Maybe...

This won't be resolved until the OP gets back to us. Right now, it appears he has forgotten about us!

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

Thanks for this information! Right now, my gut tells me that the drum in question is the typical 3-ply shell with rings. The OP has not yet gotten back to us. He needs to remove the heads and take...

Re: Silvertone Drum Identification

Hi Chuck,

Those lugs were used by Pearl in the late 60's to very early 70's. It was their top line lug. Not quite sure if the snare goes with the rest of the kit, since everything else looks like...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

I'd be interested in this, too! I don't know that I've ever seen or heard of a 1-ply snare shell offered in the Olympic series. Then again, did Premier offer any 1-ply shells in the 60's or 70's?
