Re: ASBA Caroline Pedals

Re: Cal Cunningham/Elbert "Woody" Woodson.

One more thing, after Otis, Woody played with Wilson Pickett and it's hard to see his drums in the Wilson Pickett performances I have seen but it's good to see those clips too--his snare drum is...

Re: Cal Cunningham/Elbert "Woody" Woodson.

First, it's Carl Cunningham. Second, I've watched as many Woody Woodson videos as I can find and I have to believe he's playing a supra snare or even a Ludwig acrolite but not a Gretsch. The other...

Capella. I still have sticks from them that I bought twenty years ago--they really made top quality stuff.

Re: cymbal stand bag

Try a baseball bat bag. They're longer (for bats) so you don't have to collapse the stands as much and they're not as heavy duty as typical drum hardware bags but with lightweight older stands, that...

Re: Interesting Celebrity-Owned Ludwigs on Craigslist

I was at the sale in the 90's--if I recall correctly those drums went for $800 that day. I bought a stick bag, which I still have, and a bunch of drum heads, which were a dollar a piece. My friends...

Re: New Year Pasadena Rose Parade Marching bands

Re: Ludwig Porto Throne Seats

Re: These look at lot like Ringo's Premier's (I think)

A penny can also be used in place of a slotted key on Premier lug screws. There's always a penny around somewhere

Re: Vintage Hi-Hat Stands: Gretsch vs Slingerland vs Ludwig

I have both the Ludwig and the Slingerland. The Ludwig is a war horse--it's light and yet tough and works like a champion. The Slingerland is heavier, more solid and also works really well--a very...

Re: Vintage Snare Drum 1920's No Name Any Ideas on Make

The lug clips (onto the rims) tend to wear out over time and I know someone makes a reproduction and you might want to have some of those handy just in case

Re: Vintage Premier Piccolo Snare Identification

Premier Royal Ace--great drum, very responsive. Only problem with it is if you hit it too hard the snares disengage.

Re: MIJ Wrap Finishes-Let's Rank 'Em-Popular To Rare

There was a faux "bamboo" finish that I saw once in a drum shop when I was a little kid--the owner of the shop tried to sell me those. I didn't like the finish--I only saw them one other time--in an...

Re: Orange snare drums

Never played one but I have the hi hat stand and always loved the bass drum pedal, so if build quality is consistent, it should be very good

Re: LaBoz kit in Blue Marine Pearl

Kenwood--I kind of like the look of those--have you thought about just buffing out the wood on the Slingys? Done properly they'd probably look great.
