Re: Ludwig 12,14,20

This same circumstance happened to me. Someone told him what their worth after he committed to sell them to you. That person was not a buyer, merely some idiot giving him a false sense. Now, he has...

Re: Ludwig 5x14 Pink Oyster Pearl

I think we all know how difficult it is to post large pictures on this site. Even smartphones today take pics bigger than 2k in file size. This is truly a very rare snare drum. I happen to own one in...

Re: Is Anyone Still Using This Forum?

Re: New 20 inch BD heads won't fit on Gretsch BD?

Had a similar issue recently with an early 50ís RK 16Ē FT. Bought the Remo Classics, and even though they were still tight, I got them on and the drum tuned.

Re: Best way to clean up Ludwig Resocoat (aka white painted interiors)?

If the finish is just dirty, soap and water. Make sure you donít wipe away the date stamp(s).

Re: idrum4fun

I moved last year, and to call it a daunting task after 21 years in the same house, is an understatement! I was fortunate in that one of the companies at my new job is a storage unit business. I was...

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

No, it only works well on covered shells.
About 5 years ago, a friend had an early 50ís Gretsch Name Band kit with a matching 6.5Ē snare! Although the FT was a late 50ís Slingerland in Red Sparkle,...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

I was asked to fill in for a band practice recently due to the drummer being out sick. Knowing it was a small space, I took my Jazzette. They sounded great and didnít take a lot of space.

Re: Down beats

Theyíre out there, just at the $2000+ price point! I got lucky finding the Burgundy Sparkle set I stumbled upon. They sound fantastic! Perhaps that is why they arenít coming up as often?

Re: Removing paint without damaging wrap?

Wet sanding works well but is very time consuming. Working about a 6Ēx6Ē area at a time, 400 grit until you see wrap, then 600 until the paint is mostly gone. 1000 and up to 2000, then finish off...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I have restored and brought back to life many snare drums and drum kits dating back to the Ď20ís(the drums that is, not me!). Several stand out. One of which was an early 50ís Gretsch kit. It came to...

I think youíll be pleased with these. Despite the mods, I would be interested to hear what you have to say about the sound after you get them where you want them.
