Re: Need help dating K Istanbul cymbals

Jmoll, Thanks so much. I don't remember where or when I bought the ride cymbal, but I have had it since the late 1970's. I had switched from playing rock and country to "society" combo music and...

Here is a design that has withstood the test of time (?). It is a heel pedal with a two pound weight to return the beater position. There is a gap in the bottom piece to fit under your bass drum...

Re: What's this antique pedal?

Granto, Yes, one of these days I will be shamed into starting a thread about old pedals. For all the Ludwig pedal fans I can really recommend Steve Zemanek's (SAZ) new book on Ludwig pedals from...

Re: What's this antique pedal?

The generic name for these types of pedals is an overhang or "Omaha" pedal. The Omaha reference is from the Olney 1887 U.S. patent 357093. The rod from above stops at the beater ball and there is...

Re: Cocktail Drum Outfits

Its not pre-1970 (1993 I think) but Tommy Winkler of Nashville made four very unusual ported cocktail drums with three heads. The third head was a snare head installed on a shaped bottom that just...

Re: Home made Bop set with tunable floor "snoms"

The Yamaha floor tom tuning mechanism is almost identical to some timpani mechanisms with a "spider" on the inside. I think the first example of this was Ludwig for Ray Bauduc (1930's?). It is on...

Home made Bop set with tunable floor "snoms"

I couldn't figure out how to add photos to a discussion with Robyn ("Wiggle Woman") so I will post them here. My first set was a used Slingerland Radio King that my folks got me from a pawn shop. I...

Re: Big Shout Out to Robyn64 and Peddle Pusher

All I did was write and mail a check, but Robyn is THE BOMB (I think that is what the younger set says). As she says, "Stay Wiggly". Hang in there Mark. Joe

Re: 'Good' head for gong/pancake drum?

I put medium weight Remo Renaissance heads on several marching bass drums that ranged from 16" up to 36" for use in percussion ensembles. We also had two 38" single headed bass drums with six inch...

Re: Wanted old bass drum late 1800s, early 1900

How about a "new" bass drum that just looks old? We recycle old marching bass drums into rope tensioned bass drums and add the internal light bulbs and have fun with them. Just a thought. This may...

Re: What do I do to prepare a bearing edge for staining?

Re: 16x16 floor tom to snare drum.

Re: 16x16 floor tom to snare drum.
