Re: Purdue shuffle

I've also noticed that John, "Purdie Shuffle", hasn't been active in awhile. Hope he's doing well and wish him a Happy Birthday from the VDF community! Mike, thanks for letting us know.

Re: Correct Tone Control

I installed the Canopus BB muffler on my Classic Maple JF-style snare drum. I can tell with 100% certainty that it DOES NOT fit existing BB holes on vintage Ludwig snare drums! I tried it on my 1966...

Re: Correct Tone Control

I really think this is for a Baseball Bat muffler. I've had quite a few vintage Ludwig drums and that top holes is too big for the round-knob muffler...even the one that came before the BB. The hole...

Re: Reassembling my 1966 COB 7-line Dyna

Dan! Thanks for the compliments! Your kit looks great with the 7-line Dynasonic! The picture I posted of my 7-line was before I transferred the parts to my Dynatone. Of course, it will look the same...

Re: Reassembling my 1966 COB 7-line Dyna

Hi Jeff! Yes, there are quite a few "new" Rogers parts available. I did see that you were looking for parts for your Jazz Festival. I've built a few already and managed to get period correct lugs in...

Re: Reassembling my 1966 COB 7-line Dyna

Well, that's disturbing! Especially considering the price, which is $49.99. I do appreciate the heads up and I'll be posting a review of all the parts when they arrive.

Reassembling my 1966 COB 7-line Dyna

Hi all! Many of you may remember my custom "Dynatone" snare drum. The shell was built, wrapped and drilled by Joe Montineri. All the parts, except for the badge, were transferred from my COB 7-line...

Re: WTB: Slingerland set o matic tom mount

Hi TP!

Yes, I did see where Steve explains about the 180 degree flip. The issue with this is that you very rarely see these tightening marks on the Setomatic holders that use the chrome brackets....

Re: Rogers tom mount question

I would then say that this was a custom order. While a bit unconventional in placement, the original owner felt this is what worked for him. I did notice the Pearl arm, but many of these seem to fit...

Re: Rogers tom mount question

Nice looking kit! My gut tells me that this was probably a custom order, with the buyer requesting the tom bracket in that position. Even the Knobby bracket for the cymbal arm isn't in the "normal"...

Re: Rogers COB DynaSonic

I didn't even notice that! Still, the serial number given is from the very early 70's.

Re: Rogers COB DynaSonic

Hi Mike...and Welcome to the forum!

An educated guess says that your Dynasonic is from the Fullerton era, around 1971 I believe.

Re: Vintage ends

+1 with what K.O. said. Those of us of a certain age (I'm 64) love "vintage" kits from the 60's and 70's. Drums from the 80's and on, while good in their own respect, don't do much for me. Most of...
