Re: Bearing Edge Repair Question

What a fantastic job you did! Pat yourself on the back for a job well done!

As for your pictures, what are you taking them with? Camera phone or a real camera?

Re: Rogers swivo collect nose.

I've had no luck with broken handles. Many seem to think that they screw in, but I haven't found that to be the case. Better off to find replacement collet noses.

Re: 1960s Slingerland 4 piece Maple Set

Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive versus Rogers Dynasonic

If I wasn't clear, this is exactly what I meant. I've had a few SS snare drums and very familiar with how they work. The very nature of the mechanism means that the snare wires loose a bit of tension...

Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive versus Rogers Dynasonic

Hi MB,

You're really comparing apples to oranges here! Two completely different concepts. The Ludwig SS uses snare wires that extend past the shell on both sides, while the Rogers snare wires...

Re: Scored these Ludwig’s on a local BST site.

Very true that, without the hardware, it really doesn't matter as to a specific catalog name. Still, it's nice to know what the kit may have been.

Re: 70s ludwig standard

Lemon it is! Have you purchased the kit? If you do, I'd suggest removing all hardware and doing a buffing/polishing of the shells to really make them pop!

Re: Dyna-Sonic Reissue Up Close

There you go! If The Ploughman likes the NEW Rogers, it is a good drum!

Also, you did a really nice job with your posting of the pictures! Enjoy your Dynasonic.

Re: 1982 Vintage Premier Soundwave MK2

What a cool, and beautiful, kit! Premier was making great drums, with excellent shells and, of course, their world-famous "diamond-chrome" plating!

Re: Help identifying this snare

I honestly don't know! I obtain all my MIJ snare drums because they look cool. Most of them sound so-so. I do have an early 70's 10-lug Revelle that sounds good, though!

Re: Help identifying this snare

Here's a picture of the interior of my Musketeer drum. Thin luan shell with some species of "hardwood" for the rings. None of the MIJ drums from this era that I've ever seen used maple for the rings....

Re: Help identifying this snare

The hoops and lugs are identical to those on my Crown and Musketeer snare drum, both of which I believe to be built by Hoshino.

Re: Slingerland 5 ply

Slingerland was only offering their 5-ply shell for the TDR marching drums first, in 1972. It wasn't until around 1976, or maybe just a bit earlier, that they began offering these shells with kit...
