Re: Are They Vintage?

I bought some screw-on vent grommets to put on all of the converted toms. Instead of trying to get them each exactly centered, I just centered them underneath one of the badges and didnít worry...

Re: Are They Vintage?

I got the Slingerland lugs, and guess what? They, too, are too short to cover up the existing holes! There went my plan to place the four non-conforming lugs on the playerís side so they wouldnít...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Already measured them out. If I used one current hole for mounting, the other hole would be visible below the lug. I am not averse to drilling new holes, but I wouldn’t want any holes to show on...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Thanks, everyone. So far, the 12 and 14 sound pretty good. The 10 is only 6 1/2” deep, so I will have to offset the lugs. I hope it has enough depth so that it doesn’t sound choked. I’ll update...

[QUOTE[/QUOTE]

Mark,
I couldn’t find any new ones, even from Yamaha. I took them off of the 15 and 16. I am still four short for doing the 10” tom, so I ordered some Slingerland replicas for...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Here are the finished products, at least the 14 and the 12. Still waiting on the hoop for the 10.

Re: Are They Vintage?

Next, I laid out the new lug holes on blue tape instead of the shell wrap. Using a right-angle straight edge, I laid out the location of the line of holes I would need to drill. I checked my work...

Re: Are They Vintage?

The original bearing edges were pretty complex. The slope toward the inside of the drum is about 35 degrees. I do not have, and couldn't find locally, a 35 degree chamfer bit. I decided to go with...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Very well, brothers.

I acquired this set of 1982 Yamaha YD9000 (Precursor to the Recording Customs) drums about 1 month ago. I paid $900 for them, which included the nine Yamaha drums you see in...

Are They Vintage?

I know this topic has been discussed on this forum, but since it didnít directly affect me before I didnít really pay a lot of attention. I recently bought a large set of 1982 Yamaha YD9000 drums...
