Re: Slingerland "root beer" finish&Spitfire "Tre' Cool" kit.

Slingerland is owned by Gibson Guitar company. I don't think they are still making drums on any large scale basis. They probably do something every so often to keep the trademark in force but beyond...

Re: Kings stone vintage from late 1950's

I've never heard of Kings Stone but I'd assume they would be a Made in Japan "stencil" brand. More likely from the 1960s than the 50s but possibly that old (sales of these type of drums exploded...

Re: 1961 Slingerland? Help needed

Not that it matters but that looks like Remo tom mounting hardware from the mid to late 1980's that was glommed onto these old classic drums. Pretty common for folks to perform such "upgrades" at...

Re: Slingerland Info Sought

1. Shouldn't be a problem but I suppose it depends on how much spread you want between your toms. Lots and lots of sets from various companies were sold with that same double 12 configuration, it...

Re: Any ideas regarding this Ludwig Kit?

I would guess it's in the ballpark of 1980 but could be from a fair amount of time after that. 6 ply shells so it wouldn't be any older than roughly 1978ish but could be Monroe era too. Not sure how...

Re: Gretsch Micro-Sensitive EZ Repair Video

I don't recall Jim offering that part but you never know...although I'd guess he'd charge more for that part than you can buy a whole new replacement unit for.

Barring the new replacement unit...

Re: Cleaning Butcher Block Wrap

Butcher Block is the same stuff as countertop laminate (Formica). I'd look into using whatever is recommended for cleaning those surfaces.

Re: Crazy Slingerland Question...

Not particularly a "stupid" idea. The lugs will fit the same holes so there's no drilling. The process is easily reversible so you're not really "hurting" anything. Therefore if you think you'd like...

Re: Just got a Dixieland off eBay

The six Lug Dixieland model evolved a bit thru its 15 or so years of production. The early ones had single flange hoops with the clips (these hoops are almost always bent up from people trying to put...

Re: Just got a Dixieland off eBay

Round Badge generally indicates a 60's drum (badges can be switched but usually aren't). Not sure exactly when they changed to the stop sign badge but it's usually estimated to have been right around...

Re: Gretsch 4105 6 lug aluminum questions

The 4105 is the wood shelled "Dixieland" model. The Aluminum shelled one was cataloged as the 4106 in the '71 catalog.

Kind of an oddity that your drum would have "4105" on the tag as they are not...

Re: Picked up my dream drum set today

Franks Drum Shop was known for ordering in drums with no mounting hardware so they could install whatever brand of hardware the customer preferred. That could explain the virgin bass drum as the...

Re: Canopus Jeff Hamilton flat base stands with 6 mm tilters-for small hole cymbals

The Ludwig flat based stand that was replaced by the Atlas model a few years back was similar to that Canopus model including the 6mm cymbal post. Of course the new Atlas has an 8mm post (because...

Re: Snare Identification

Looks like a Ludwig throw off. I'd guess that it is an early Ludwig (with the top hoop replaced) but hard to say for certain based on the limited pictures.

Re: Another Ludwig ID + Repairs

Didn't notice the claws before, they look like Slingerlands...maybe. Not Ludwigs of any era though.

Re: Another Ludwig ID + Repairs

Shouldn't be too hard to rustle up a replacement double tom holder on ebay. You could also use a modern replacement as long as it had a 1" down tube and 9.5mm (3/8ths inch) arms. I believe the top...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

As opposed to what sort of head on the bottoms? At that time Ludwig drums (other than snare drums) came from the factory with the same medium heads top and bottom.


Your mounted tom would have to...

Re: Gretsch 4105 6 lug aluminum questions

Those were student drums, like Gretsch's answer to the Ludwig Acrolite. As such they were somewhat buried in the back of the catalog. There were both a six and eight lug versions offered. I don't own...

Re: 1946 Leedy Shell Info Needed

Not sure on that exact drum but most makes from that era tend to contain either maple or mahogany plies around a poplar core. Usually 3 plies were used. I can't see your pictures well enough on my...

Re: Ludwig snare input please

All Ludwig 6 plies were a Maple/Poplar mix. They used poplar as part of the shells up until the introduction of the Classic Maple line which was much later on. Poplar made up the majority of the 3...

Re: Ludwig snare input please

Rounded badge was a bit later, 1979ish. The Rock/Concert model shown in the '80 catalog has the small bowties. I think that is what you have there.

Re: Ludwig snare input please

6 ply from that time frame would be a mix of maple and poplar plies. Just so you know.

Re: Is this a Ludwig Standard pedal?

We can agree to disagree :)

Let's just say my Standard bass pedal and Hi-Hat are "for display purposes only" (the cymbal stands work fine though, like a 1400 top and middle mated to a...
