Re: Pitting/Flaking Ludwig Supra

Why not just take it to a metal polishing shop and have them polish it down to the aluminum shell?

Re: Ludwig Preserial Chrome on Brass Snare rechrome?

Brass plates easily.

Aluminum has big issues.

Look at all the older supras out there that are pitted and flaking.

Re: Ludwig Preserial Chrome on Brass Snare rechrome?

Brass I would consider a rechrome.
Chroming brass is a no brainer.

Re: Ludwig Preserial Chrome on Brass Snare rechrome?

Re: Original Tone Controls -- Simply Style over Substance?

Re: Reassembling my 1966 COB 7-line Dyna

I replaced my bottom hoop on my COB dyna and noticed the chrome on the snare guard was not of the highest quality.
I've seen other new ones and they seem to be of the same poor quality.

Re: Pearl Exports with fiberglass shells?

Exports were never made with fiberglass.
They were an entry level set with some pro style perks.
Exports came in two flavors ,wrapped and lacquered.

Re: Fibes Drums

Just off the top of my head ,the Fibes and xtras are probably in the $1200 range in terms of value.
That Fibes kit does look mint though.

Re: 1966 Rogers Tower Snare Drum / WMP

If there's anything Rogers did well,it's their chrome plating.
I have a 40 year old Dyna and it is spotless.

Re: Tama "The Classic" HP-50 pedal - New - $75 shipped

Who'd you buy it from?
GC has a 45 day return policy.
I've played that pedal and feel for you.

Dumb question, why didn't...
