Re: My first vintage set

That's a great looking set of Slingies complete with some good cymbals. Your patience has handsomely rewarded you. Tou said in an earlier post that there was another drum in mix. What is it?

"I wanted to know if I had a Name Band (with the optional 20") or a standard Bop kit. It just looks like 6 of one or 1/2 dozen of another". That is one of the most intelligent statements I have read...

Re: Slingerland Blue Flame

Please post a "before" picture of the drums just as they are when you bought them. Your spiffing up will be more dramatic that way.

If you are anywhere near the Dallas area, there is a long-standing local chain of three stores named Elliott's Hardware. I would bet that they have what you need.

Re: Source for parts for a 60's Ludwig rail

Please heed the advice given by Vyacheslav. The local hardware store (preferably a large mom and pop store if you can find one) is the drummer's best friend when it comes to finding that oddball...

Re: Vintage Pictures, Ads, and Catalogs

In the 1960s, we played on flatbed trailers for a lot of dances in the Springtime, Summertime, and early Autumn on the parking lots of churches and parks. We usually provided our own P.A. system...

Re: New Cocktail Drum Pedal with Bracket Now Available

I figured that you'd be interested, Mike. I plan to use a beater with this pedal that will smack the bottom had of the drum with the full face of the beater. This cool thing is on a pivot. The first...

Re: Rogers Covington

Here's a fairly decent shot of the set. The room is too small to take better pictures. When it finally stops raining, I'll try to get some out doors pictures.

Re: !!! JP2Creations web site down

I wouldn't hesitate to do the re-wrap. If the drums were mine, I'd want to wrap them in a period-correct wrap.

The bass drum did, indeed, have twenty lugs. I traded those drums with a matching Slingerland Red Satin Flame snare drum to Bobby. I can't find any pictures of that drum set. I seem to have lost a...
