Re: Bass Drum Spur Hole Repair

What I've done before is completely fill the hole with wood filler and re-drill. Put painters tape on the outside of the shell (on the wrap) to use as a backing plate, then fill the hole in with...

Good Deal on a Rogers Butcher Block Kit in Indianapolis Area

These are not mine, but I saw these and thought I would pass it along.

Looks like the bass drum has been modded with a Ludwig mount, and some of the "rash" on the drums appears to be adhesive...

Re: Quick tip on protecting wood hoops from pedal rash

That's a good idea, but the Moleskin is very thin and doesn't protect well enough. I treid it once with one layer and the pedal still chewed into the wood pretty easily. Unless you are using 3-4...

Quick tip on protecting wood hoops from pedal rash

Greetings,

I just wanted to share a quick tip that is cheap and easy to protect wood bass drum hoops from "pedal rash". I know there are presently available items you can purchase for this, with...

Re: Avedis Zildjian cymbal - ID help needed

Zen,

Here are two photos of the cymbal I was thinking about. It's a 20" K. Custom ride. The stamp is definitely "pressed in" and not laser engraved. You can barely make it out, but the ID...

Re: 1966 Slingerland "Modern Solo # 2R" Outfit

One last try on this forum before I go elsewhere.

I may be willing to sell the snare separately.

Give me a shout,

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Here's another one:

Remo Legero drums. It was the same concept as the RIMS "Headset" kits and the Arbiter Flats, but with very shallow shells. Rumor has it that the shells were so cheaply made...

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

I agree about the Arbiter Flats kit. Those actually weren't too bad.

I have a RIMS "Headset" that is just heads and no shells. It used to belong to John Stebal from Stebal Drums. He said it was...

Re: Old Pearl refurbishing pt1

Welcome!

Great story! Two things we all really love here: Photos of a clean/restore job and good stories about a certain kit.

I bet you are really glad you hung on to that kit. Good for...

Re: Yahama Drums??

Not Yamaha, but they look like Pearl drums from the mid to late 70's, based on the bass drum's and top tom's mount. Snare may be a different make, certainly a different color. Just by looking at...

Re: Early 60's Jazz Fesival basket case acquisition.

I agree with kevins, looks like a great project. Minimal fading on the wrap too.

I know it's sacrilege to say, but you could always replace the lugs with brand new ones (Ludwig still sells them).

Replacing the nylon tube bushing on older cymbal stands

Greetings,

I recently came across some older cymbal stands that I picked up. They use the "dog ear" carriage bolt/wing nut assembly that squeezes the dog ears together and holds the tube above it...

Re: Italian Mica Sonic Flat Ride

Thanks for the great info, as always, zen.

I picked it up because I liked the sound, but also I knew it was a pretty rare bird. Of course I know that doesn't necessarily mean valuable, just rare.

Re: Avedis Zildjian cymbal - ID help needed

A fantastic and thorough job as always, zen!

I know for a fact I have a couple Zildjians that have pressed (non-laser) trademarks with ID numbers. I have them at my storage unit. Next time I am...

Goofy MIJ cymbal arms that are weirdly angled and non-adjustable. (Pic from another user on this forum).

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Anyone remember the Mapex Janus Hi-Hat/Double Pedal combo?

Not necessarily a bad idea, but I know they were discontinued not long after they had arrived on the market.

It was one pedal that you...

Ok, thanks. Did you just edit that post or did I just completely miss that?


Cool kit. Maybe it's just the way they are set up, but the bass drum sure looks like an 18" in those photos. Maybe...

Re: Anyone here interested in hearing what a 22" pre-trans sound like?

Thank you so much for providing the sound file!

For me this rates as a very strong "Meh". It sounds cool and I know it's very rare, but just because it's rare doesn't mean it sounds great. I've...

Re: Avedis Zildjian cymbal - ID help needed

It's definitely a third generation Scimitar model. The "dotted line" hammering, along with the color (B8 alloy) gives that away.

I know that Zildjian started adding ID Numbers to cymbals in 1994,...

Italian Mica Sonic Flat Ride

Greetings,

I picked this up a few days ago. It looks like B8 alloy, and reminds me of a Paiste 2002 the way that it is hammered. There is no engraved stamp, just the "Mica-Sonic" (Top) and "Made...

Re: Morris Kit

Nice!

Interesting tom holder mechanism. The "thumb" on the clip mount looks bigger/wider than on standard MIJ stuff. What are the sizes? Is that an 18" bass drum?

Re: 10x14 Ludwig marcher advice needed

It's your drum, feel free to do whatever you like.

You could also use it as a shallow floor tom with legs too. If you put the brackets as far down as possible on the shell (without interfering...
