Re: Rogers Big R Era Dating Guide For Snares and Drums

My first serious, professional kit was a Rogers Big R.

I ordered from the 1973-4-ish year's catalog, thinking I was getting a Swivo kit, but when the drums arrived, in early 1975, it was one of...

Re: 1932-34 SLINGERLAND 6.5 x 14 ROSE PEARL DuALL (AN AMAZING RESTORATION) LL

Still though...it would be nice to hear/see someone with really great technique play a selection of those vintage drums just for historical purposes. Not that many people play drums set up like that...

Re: 1932-34 SLINGERLAND 6.5 x 14 ROSE PEARL DuALL (AN AMAZING RESTORATION) LL

It would be great to have a few high-quality audio/videos made of someone with really proper snare drumming technique, playing some of those drums in the Curotto collection. Get some orchestral guy,...

Re: Mystery lugs-whose are these?

My guess would be a Made In Japan lug of some type -very simple casting -low cost -easy to buff out....but I'm unfamiliar with that design.

Re: '67 Ludwig’s in Burgundy Sparkle

Nice, clean kit! Is that masking tape on the tom holder? I can't see well anymore. :(

Re: 1932-34 SLINGERLAND 6.5 x 14 ROSE PEARL DuALL (AN AMAZING RESTORATION) LL

Yes. All those old calfskin equipped drums from back then were almost like a link to the very most ancient drums and modern (of the day) technologies. There really is nothing like the sound and feel...

Re: 1932-34 SLINGERLAND 6.5 x 14 ROSE PEARL DuALL (AN AMAZING RESTORATION) LL

Wow! What a great, old drum brought back from near-death! Nice! Joeyboom sure knows what he's doing!

Those were some of the coolest and weirdest snare drums with those banjo resonator things.

Re: If it weren't for the local pick-up only....

No doubt the coolest drum to ever be on Ebay I reckon! If I had the money, then this would be a toy I would want to have. Alas....:(

Re: Mystery snare might be an early Rogers

I'd say early Gretsch at this point....but my first guess was going to be Duplex.

Re: Slingerland Radio King- is this a good deal?

I can't really see the condition from that picture. The bass drum is going to sound huge but be a PITA to haul around(if you are planning on gigging with it). If it were me, then I'd need to NEED a...

Re: Two estate sale finds

Wow! Now THAT'S a legitimately nice find! Not a pieced-together Frankenstein kit. I love to see that. I don't collect anymore...but IF I were to run across that at an estate sale, then I'd likely buy...

Edit...Didn't see the second link. I thought you were referring to the Acrolite....sorry.

Re: future of drumheads

Interesting...but I'm not sure that our primitive style drums will even warrant such a technological advancement as you suggest. Our beloved analog instruments may go by the wayside one day.

Re: The 5 snares every drummer should own-The "Iconic" Snares

Yes I agree with you about different nuances in drums the same size and material.....But, in all honesty....(and this may just be my opinion....but I doubt it)...A snare drum, by its design, is a...

Re: What's with Acrolite (and Blackrolite) prices?

How many other snare drums can you name that have seamless, beaded, spun metal shell with flanged bearing edges? The Acrolite's shell, alone, is waaaaaaaaaayyyyyy superior to most anything else out...

Re: The 5 snares every drummer should own-The "Iconic" Snares

That wasn't the OP's question. The OP's question was..."If you had to name five snare drums that every drummer should have, what would you say?"

There was no reference to "musical spectrum" or...

Re: What's with Acrolite (and Blackrolite) prices?

I love it! Don't get me wrong.....but part of the reason I collected stuff over the years was as an investment. I WANT the prices to go up on all this stuff. In fact, the only way I'd even consider...

I started playing professional gigs when I was 15. Once, right after I got my brand-new 1975 Rogers Big R Memriloc kit, I was asked to play for a country "act" with some local guy who was semi-famous...

Re: Is my Acrolite really 1964?

Yes....to pile on and become redundant. ;) It's a '64 and yes it has COB hoops -as does my '64 Pioneer....except my Pioneer has NOB hoops!

Re: The Most Recorded Snare

It's probably a conclusion based on the number of Ludwig drums that were out there at the time. I don't see how the Supraphonic couldn't be the most-recorded snare drum, since it and the recording...

Exactly! I see the same thing happening all over the place with antique/vintage stuff. I bought a couple old Emerson fans that were made in the 1930s and the deeper I got into that market, the more...
