Re: Were Slingerland stick-savers undersized?

Thanks for your reply. I finally got around to measuring the shell, and it appears to be around 13 15/16". Heads sit perfectly well on it and have enough room to spin when placed on the shell, so no...

Re: Were Slingerland stick-savers undersized?

Thanks for the replies, fellas. Yeah, I'm pretty sure these are real Slingerland hoops. They have the inward flange (stick-saver), and the "ears" around the tension rods as you pointed out. Also,...

Re: Were Slingerland stick-savers undersized?

I'm pretty certain they're real Slingerland hoops and not MIJ knock-offs. Is there any way to tell?

Were Slingerland stick-savers undersized?

So, I've got this set of 14" 8-lug COB top/bottom stick savers for a snare drum. I'm currently working on a new snare drum build for personal use and was hoping to use these hoops on it. I had used...

Re: Hammering out dents in metal shells?

Funny, my father-in-law's shop does auto body work in addition to mechanic work (in addition to inspection/insurance). But I generally try to keep my distance from the father-in-law, so I haven't...

Re: Hammering out dents in metal shells?

Thanks for the advice, guys!

Cin, are you talking about a standard large rubber mallet?

And Cuquito, how big a steel ball are you talking about? And do you just roll it by hand? And using how...

Hammering out dents in metal shells?

I'm wondering if anyone here has had any luck doing this. I've got 3 metal-shelled snare drums (2 brass and 1 aluminum) that have dents. In fact, all 3 of them have dents under the strainer. And to...

Re: How much is my 70's Ludwig set worth?

Thanks very much for the replies, fellas. Sounds about like what I was expecting.



I've never looked at how many plies there are, but all the drums have re-rings and clear interiors, if that...

How much is my 70's Ludwig set worth?

Hi, I'm wondering if you all can help me. I've got this set, which belonged to my uncle. I always thought I'd have it forever, but I just don't have the need for it anymore, or the space. This kit is...

Re: Used Calf Skin Heads

Depending on the sizes, vintage calf heads certainly have value. I much prefer them to newly-made ones.

Re: Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

For what it's worth, I've decided to go in a very different direction with this project. I'm going to use a thin cherry stave shell with integrated re-rings. Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

I know what you're saying Powertone, but I enjoy building drums for myself, and I've got some time for a project (for the first time in forever), so I'm hoping to do this one myself. This is just a...

Re: Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

Wow, clone drum? Estate brokers? I think you've completely missed the point here. I'm looking to build a drum for personal use which is not going to resemble a Rogers AT ALL with the exception of the...

Re: Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

Yeah, I know what you mean. I'd still like to get it close to the specs of the Rogers shell though if possible. Doesn't seem terribly unreasonable. There's gotta be somebody out there with one of...

Re: Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

Great, Ploughman! Getting closer to what I need to know. Could you tell me what the thickness of the shells might have been for the 3 and 5-ply shells? I'm just trying to compare it to a modern...

Re: Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

Thanks for your post, Jim.

I also have a fond memory of a really great sounding Luxor snare, and I'm trying to get the same kind of sound in a new drum I'm building myself. It certainly won't be...

Question about Rogers (Luxor) snare shells

I'm sorry if this information can already be found on the site, but I searched around and wasn't able to find what I'm looking for.

Re: Double Tom stand using twin snare baskets

I've never seen or heard of it being done, but I don't see any reason why you couldn't do it. That's actually quite an ingenious, out of the box idea. You'd obviously want to use a pretty sturdy...
