Re: Rogers 8x12 Black Diamond Pearl

No. I've got a 14x14, but I don't think it's a Cleveland. Mostly like Dayton, but it was flat grey. In any event it is all black inside now including the label and tied to an 8x12 and 14x20 so it's...

That's a very nice kit Mark, although in your case I'll not say it's a keeper. LoLoLoLo

Re: Leedy Fiesta Pearl

Cool kit Mark. I kind of wish I was still in the market to buy, not sell. I really like the Leedys and the color is not seen very often.

Re: Let's see your drum room!!

I feel like such a piker looking at these drum rooms. All very cool. Mine is the back end of a shed in ME that used to look as if it was a hideout from the movie Deliverance. It does work for the...

Re: 1959 Ludwig Buddy Rich 980P Super Classic

Beautiful setup Mark, It speaks volumes about what vintage drums and playing them is all about. I agree with your approach to use them too. Once I was on vintage (early 90's), I used them...

Re: Leedy Experts

I've only had one Leedy kit. It was from that era. These were badged on all 4 drums, so they were last of the line from what I've gathered. I liked them a lot, but sold them when I made a major move...

Re: 1967 Norma MIJ

Very nice and great that you have the logo head. They look as if they weren't used very much.

Re: The Drum Bug

My parents started getting me drums for Christmas from the age of 3 or so. And they were just thinking they were toys. It didn't really hit me solidly until I saw Ringo Starr on his riser on the Ed...

Re: Gretsch RB progjazz 20/12/14/brass/ 1966RWP

Always an education here. I thought the wine red and emerald green hadn't shown up until the early 70's. I've only seen those kits with metal hoops. Cool setup. Thanks for posting.

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

Boy, this thread really caught on fire. But there are some great deals out there. If I was still buying, this one would already be gone to my place. Drop dead gorgeous even if you do have to deal...

Re: Rogers Red Sparkle 20, 12, 14

No takers here. Sold on Reverb. I gave the guy a very good deal. I'm glad they are moving on to someone who is going to play them. Many down. A couple to go.

A year of so back, there were...

Re: Paint on Rogers Labels

Thanks for the hints on this guys, especially Jeff's given his expertise in wood finishing and so forth.

And as to weather or not I have done it yet, the answer is no. I've been busy building a...

Re: 14" Rogers floor tom value

The last two I've seen go off on eBay sold for well over $1000. Red sparkle was very close to $1200. The reasons for a purchase vary quite a bit. I sold a refinished (jet black) kit with a 20, 12, 14...

Re: Rogers Holiday

Romulus,

If you are ever stuck again without a key, you will usually find that you can press down on the hoop with the back of your hand and loosen one tension rod at a time. This will almost...

Re: Gretsch RB Price Check

I'm not at all sure of Gretsch pricing nowadays, but it looks as if the refinishing work was well done. I might guess somewhere $1500 or below if the shells and hardware were really good before it...

Paint on Rogers Labels

Anyone here had the experience of trying to get spray paint off a Rogers label. Black spray paint, in particular?

Thanks!
