Re: Slingerland Trade

Normally, i would too (and i get what you mean)

But in this particular case, i'd be all over that trade

The brown just seems to "work" in this case

Re: Calling all Rogers Experts!

any time a sale ad relies on a 1,000 word essay, it raises flags

for me, anyway

Re: Worthy Project? - Big Beat Set?

i'm not D69, but i have both and find the ultrasonic is best for rust removal using Evaporust or CLR (vinegar works, but takes WAY too long)

following up with a tumbler and a shot of NuFinish car...

Re: Yamaha SD-055M Snare

$120, if you're lucky

steel snares don't have a high demand here

Re: Snare Beds

put 42-strand wires on a narrow-bedded snare and see how many thousands of hours of adjusting you'll do in order to eliminate any buzzing

you won't

ever.

Re: Easy and inexpensive way to keep Supras from de-tuning-or any other drum

probably not a seriously widespread problem, although it could drive one crazy if one had a drum that did it all the time

i know i haven't experienced it... yet

Re: Hopeless, right?

Just soak it in Dawn and water or vinegar alone overnight

It'll be fine

Use Evaporust if you want it done faster

Re: Odd 1993 5.5x14 Tama Swingstar

My guess is that they were a "test" kit for a new factory just getting off the ground, so they were busting out the cheepest junk possible until they could get all their processes in order

Re: Powder Coating a Ludwig Acro ?

Powder-coated anything looks hokey

I vote for polish or at least wet sand

Re: Overall MIJ Prices. Your thoughts?

its the World Supreme Quality proprietary, "weight-reducing drilling process" that the universe has finally discovered

THATS what's driving the prices up!

oh, did i mention more suckers?

Re: My new best friend. Ultra-Sonic Cleaner.

i've never had any plating loss using a vibratory tumbler using walnut shells and even adding some 80-grit silicate carbide lapping grit

what media were you using?

still, i see one of those...

Re: Ever see this before ?

Its to suspend the hoop from a wire while plating

Steel snare shells also "have holes" for the same reason

Re: "Freak" Swingstar with King Beat Style Throw Off

Looks like someone FrankenHeimed a Pearl mech onto a Tama Roller setup

Nothing special, but at least its functional

Re: Tama Swingstar - Restoration Project

just use the dishwater and a wad of aluminum foil... realistically, to clean an entire kit takes about three days; there's nothing wrong with taking two years and 600 photos, but you'll find the end...

Re: Tama Swingstar - Restoration Project

a squirt of Dawn and some hot water in a kitchen sink would do the same thing and be much cheaper/easier
