WTB: 60's-70's Red Sparkle Singerlands

Prefer original condition, but a great player's grade set with good mods is OK, just no open drill holes or re-wraps, please. Need 13/16/22, or 12/13/16/22. Would consider 13/14/18/24 set also. No...

Re: Happy Valentines Day - Show off those Red Drums !

This is a good place to post this: I'm casually looking for a 60's-70's Slingerland red sparkle set in original condition, 13/16/22. I passed on one last summer out in PA and regretted it. Found one...

Thumbs down Re: Ludwig 75th Anniversary "Eagle" Kit for Sale on Ebay-Big Beat Configuration

Really. Those things would never darken my door. Ugly as hell. Can't imagine what Bill Ludwig was thinking when he dreamed those up.

Re: Buying advice: Slingerland Radio King

$400-$450 is reasonable, IMO.

Re: Ludwig-Slingerland Legal Briefs on ebay

Bill Ludwig and Bud Slingerland despised each other, but they came together in '55 when Bud bought Leedy and Bill got his name back from Conn. There were also times when they helped each other out....

Re: 1950s Cymbals with John Grey Kit

I too was going to say UFIP. Back in the old days, there were few cymbals choices. You got Zildjian, or you settled for something less. UFIP was the stencil cymbal maker of the day, in that they made...

Re: Civil War "Yankee" snare

I agree with the above. That is not a Civil War era drum at all, and antique dealers have a tendency to guess on value of things of which they know nothing. Also, antique dealers are very often the...

Re: 1948-52 WFL Aqua Sparkle

Why is the bass drum turned around to the batter side?

Re: Unusual Rogers Find

Tangerine sparkle re-wrap, and odd sizes, IMO. I wouldn't bother, but that's only my opinion. I'd say maybe $400 if you really want them as a restoration project. Ditch that 12x15 marching drum and...

Re: Slingerland Fade

I'm glad you like them, but I would recover those tubs faster than you can imagine. I couldn't deal with that fading at all, but if you like them, play them in good health for many years. ;)

Re: Any idea what these cymbals are?

Brass. I'm almost 100% certain. Not to be a downer, but I wouldn't expect Zildjian quality.

Re: G.A.M. vintage copper snare - does anyone know how much these are worth?

Anything made by Spizzichino is worth money these days because he passed away a number of years ago. His cymbals are highly prized, mostly by jazz drummers, because they sound similar to the old K....

Re: Revelle 60's 4 pc set

Looks like the Tempro set I just got rid of a while back. Same finish. $29.95 is a bargain.

Re: Shipping Vintage drums overseas

I sent a vintage Ludwig 12/14/20 set to Denmark once. All I can say is, I packed it very carefully, telescoped each drum inside another and sent it off via UPS, I think. The buyer agreed to pay all...

Damn! I would have taken that 16" floor tom in a heartbeat.

If the deal falls through, PM me, please.

Re: Tama pig in a poke

Those guys at GC are on drugs, I think. There are so many cases of them over pricing stuff, it's laughable.

Re: Strange seams

Those riveted seams were perhaps the worst idea that ever emanated from the Ludwig factory.

Re: Head choice

Clear Diplomats on the bottom, clear Emperors on top. Or, if you like Evans, Clear G1s on the bottom, clear or coated G2s on top.
