Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

After reviewing images of all the kits on their site I noticed something unusual. Whereas most quality drum manufacturers tend use one, or perhaps two, proprietary lug designs that makes their...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

The drums in some of the images look decent, but it must be very low end stuff. Only $1100 USD for a 7 drum "Elite" set including snare stand, cymbal stands, BD and hi hat pedals and throne. No...

Re: Type I,II,III old K s

Really nice cymbals. In your video the 20 inch sounds very big and very dark and reminds me a bit of what I would expect from a 22 inch cymbal. I'm guessing that is a result of it's very light weight.

Re: Type I,II,III old K s

Old K's are really not meant for "smacking".

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

My son owns a set of Keropes including 15 inch hats, 18 and 20 inch crash rides, and a 22 inch ride. While they are certainly nice cymbals, they don't sound similar to old K's, IMO, although the 20...

Re: Type I,II,III old K s

What these particular cymbals are I can't say, but, Ludwig shows a hi-hat stand in their 1928 catalog. I do not have access to a 1926 or 1927 catalog so I have no way of telling whether or not 1928...

Re: Slingerland repro badge fail

Its not just the loops in the l's, although that is the most obvious feature. The entire word is incorrect. Here I believe is an example of the real deal. I don't understand why someone would go to...

Re: Slingerland repro badge fail

I not a Slingerland guy, but for starters the font for Slingerland is incorrect, and the overall shape is a bit too short for its width. Real Slingerland badges were a bit rounder. Also not sure if...

Re: My Christmas Present

Back in the day tom resonance just wasn't a big issue. Remember, that back then all those drums also had built-in mufflers which were used to varying degrees by a lot of drummers. Today those...

Re: My Christmas Present

Congratulations. Although they are refinished with non-original hardware, which will likely affect the resale value and may be a non-starter for some collectors, they are still Camco shells in great...

Re: Dino Danelli Clip: "Do You Feel It"

Having come of age in the '60's I always though he was a terrific drummer and highly underrated.

Re: If this cymbal sounds near as good as it looks...it's killer

It will definitely have a buttery, played-in feel. I wonder which sticks will get the most out of it. Interesting patina. Good find! Bowing

Re: Just Ordered Mystery Cymbals...any Guesses?

Of course you can spend your money any way you want. I was trying to understand the logic behind doing this.

I can only speak for myself of course, but I'm very particular about the sound of the...

Re: Just Ordered Mystery Cymbals...any Guesses?

My question is why you would purchase a cheap looking cymbal with no idea of its build quality or sound?. All you have to go by is a low resolution fuzzy image of a cymbal. It's probably not brass,...

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

Thanks. It makes it easier to discuss cymbals if we understand each others preferences and expectations.

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

By the way, just as a comparative reference, what rides do you like the sound of, or like to play?

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

Many jazz players, myself and my son Milestones included, prefer the sticking to be woody sounding rather than bright and pingy, and with bells that are darker and clunkier sounding rather than...

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

With jazz cymbals you generally don't want them to go dead when you're riding although some drummers do prefer dry cymbals. Usually thinner darker sounding cymbals are preferred with a clear...

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

While it is certainly not my cup of tea either I would not characterize it as horrid or anything even close to horrid. At $2500 though I can think of a lot of 20" and 22" old K's I'd rather have for...

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

Wow. Could they have hidden it any better? The 18" cymbal sounds nice but a little too washy for my taste. Its more of a crash than a ride now, IMHO. It certainly doesn't sound like a '60s A anymore.

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

The 3rd and 4th rows all appear to be re-lathed and hand hammered 60's A's I don't really care how they look, I do care how they sound though. But with no sound files I would pass. Sound files are...

Re: Has Maxwell stopped dealing in cymbals?

Keep in mind Maxwell's online cymbal inventory was not 100% complete. The 22" trans stamp my son picked up at the New York store and the other 22" trans he listened to were both on consignment and...
