Re: Mapex Saturn Pro 10 x 8 root beer burst tom

Did they do a Saturn Pro in RootBeer Burst? I was under the impression that the RootBeer Burst came out after the Pro name was retired and was solely the Saturn line.

FWIW, I own a set of...

Hey Hack,
Do you remember the "warm" welcome you got here? Man, that was like months and months of warm crap piled on fists. Not the best of times, that's for sure.

Re: 1963 Premier 54 outfit Aquamarine sparkle Drum show in Chi Town, To go or not to

Ouch. Rough rough rough fade. Snare looks great, though. Value will take a serious nose dive with that level of fade. GREAT kit. Serious quality drums.

Re: Mid '60s Rogers Holiday w/o the speckled interior?

Re: Mid '60s Rogers Holiday w/o the speckled interior?

A 65 Rogers would not have speckled paint. It would have flat gray paint. Bobby Chiason has confirmed the existence of a few custom ordered kits with odd interiors.
