Re: Paint stripping over a wrap

That's weird... they obviously painted the shell with the lugs in place, but since those lugs aren't painted black, someone must have taken the expense of replacing all the hardware.

As mentioned...

Re: Bass drum measurements ???

With the drum resting on a head, he measures across the 20" head from the outside of the hoops and got 22x22, then he measured the "height" of the 16" shell from hoop to hoop and got 17.5", so I...

Re: 70ís Rogers Butcher Block

That looks to be in fantastic condition. Bass and 13" tom appear to have the original reso heads. Probably the 12 and 16 do also. I'll bet the snare frame is still on the Dynasonic. Jeez, that's a...

Re: Rogers Mardi Gras that got away.

Given that those look completely unrestored, it's very possible that bass and tom aren't B&B shells redrilled for Beavertails. That might be a rare 1963 Mardi Gras bass and tom (end of the Mardi...

Re: Painted Luddy restoration finally done :-)

I can't believe that's the same set. You did a fantastic job. I remember when pearl finishes became so unpopular in the 70's that everyone was stripping shells to the bare wood and staining them,...

Re: Good Deal or Not

Blue Ripple is one of my favorite Rogers wraps, and to have that wrap with Beavertails is unusual, because Blue Ripple was discontinued as a catalog finish the very same year Beavertails were...

Re: Rogers Celebrity - 45 Years Ago!

Mark,

Just curious... that's not a Rogers set in the pic with you and Roy Burns, but it appears to have Rogers Memriloc tom mounts. I can't enlarge it enough to see the lugs. Do you remember...

Re: Rogers hoops or inlay ... please look ...

Anthony,

I have a couple silver glass inlays removed from two Rogers 24" hoops. One seems more faded than the other, or they may just be from two different eras. I know one is definitely early...

Re: Windage=Vintage+heavy drinking?

What do you Ludwig guys think of the price? I have no idea of value when it comes to Vistalites. Never owned any.

I do like this guy's ad, but I only take "windage" into consideration when I'm...

Re: Snare Identification

Could very likely be a Lyon & Healy even if it has the label of a "jobber" in the interior. A jobber was a company that distributed the drum under its own name. I have a very similar drum that...

Re: Oval Badge Dyna 5xxxx

That's one of those "handle-with-cotton-gloves-only" museum pieces. I've never seen one cleaner. Even though it appears from the pic that the snare frame is not mounted, I assume you have it. I own...

Re: Mystery.Brass Snare

I've never seen those weird lugs before. Too bad we can't get a better look at the strainer. Can you ask the seller for more pics?

Re: New Rogers Beavertails for Tom-toms??

Wow. $52 for four new Beavertail lugs? Really? What's a full set with a Dynasonic going to retail for? $8000?

Re: Thursday's dumb question of the day-Rogers

First, I'll assume you're talking about a single tom arm rather than a double tom mount. In the absence of pictures, it's a little difficult to guess which style Swivo tom arm is period correct for...

Re: Identify snare drum by throwoff?

Yah, CB700 or any of a bunch of no-name "Made-in-China" beginner snares. You can find tons of these for $20- $40 depending upon condition. That one looks pretty beat up. I've bought a few of these...

Re: 1938-40 SLINGERLAND 7 x 14 BDP GENE KRUPA MODEL RADIO KING

Simply gorgeous! Are the snares original? I would have thought there would be gut snares on that.

Re: Another Rogers Toy

Beautiful set. I'm guessing the little holes next to each swivo mount on the toms and bass are remnants from Memriloc mounts. Spacing looks about right...

Re: Rogers Big R Drums: Opinions

DB,

No, that isn't my set. The story behind that setup is described in Rob Cook's Rogers book. Apparently they spent a whole day setting it up for a photo shoot. I think it's now in a museum or...

Re: Ludwig Hardware Question

Thanks guys! So I'll install the grooved legs on my early 70's FT. And thanks BEC for narrowing down the transition to 1965 (presumably without having to go check your warehouse of kits).

Re: Rogers Big R Drums: Opinions

Fellow member Ploughman is an expert on the Big R series, and hopefully he'll chime in. The first Big R drums are identical to the late script Fullerton's with the only difference being the big,...

Do any of you Ludwig experts know when Ludwig switched from knurled ends on FT legs and L-arms to the more commonly seen grooved ends? (see pic below of both types). I'm trying to determine which...

Re: Are These Badges Worth This?

What's more amusing than the asking price, is the fact that the seller wants the buyer to pay shipping cost! Com'on! After getting $4500 for three badges, you can't cover the $20 shipping cost???

Re: Nice Basement Find!

I wonder what's going to happen when the previous home owner finally unloads the moving truck, starts unpacking, and then says, "Hey, where the hell are my drums?".
