Re: SONOR 8 pc Phonic Series Rosewood in/out 1975 Centennial RARE & EXCELLENT!

Very odd market these days, but if someone advertises a price that's in your opinion a little [or a lot] higher than normal, so be it. No one is twisting your arm to buy, but if you do you must have...

Does it have to match?

A lot of players are very much into the appearance of their kits one way or another. Is it important for YOU to play with a matching snare drum to your kit[s]?

Re: This Is The Least Active Forum Ever

Re: Acquarian hi- frequency

That's all good info, thanks. I have many snare drums but I think I,ll keep this one for my gospel/worship trio where that extra sensitivity is really needed. I don't lay into it like other styles.

Rogers R-360

Not really familiar with these shells. Are they decent, worthy drums or another attempt to make money off the "Rogers" name? They are inexpensive when they show up, but so are a lot of other drums

Re: CB, or Westbury vintage

Don't mean to annoy the drum snobbies here, but this traditional size Westbury jazz kit is quite remarkable, as is the 6 lug snare drum...esp the snare drum! Played a gospel 6 song set, and it...

Re: CB, or Westbury vintage

Answer;; Westbury, hands down. Solid shells, nice detail, no glaring flaws, traditional sizes, tight wrap etc

Re: Tama..chevron finish?

Sorry no, but im going back tomorrow to look closer at them. Do you know when Tama started making drums in Taiwan, that could give me a time frame? MIJ would come before MIT I assume?
