Re: Vintage kent snare drum

You can get numerous new strainers that have adjustable mounting holes so you would not have to drill the shell . The shell on that Kent drum is Maple btw .

Re: Vintage kent snare drum

The 13 is not quite as common as the 14 but there are still quite a few out there . That is a student snare . I have played a 13 just like that and it sounded quite good actually .

Re: Rogers Drum Talk video discussing some of the Swivomatic era gear

A lot of people see 4 holes and think it needs 4 screws it is super common . But was designed to work with only the 2 . Again cool video and killer sets of drums you feature .

Re: Rogers Drum Talk video discussing some of the Swivomatic era gear

FYI on the tom mounts they are only supposed to have 2 set screws not 4 . They are designed to work with 2 and actually won't hold as well with the 4 . Cool vid I just wanted to point that out .

Re: Kent drums year made

A pic of them will help determine when they were made . 1966 is the earliest date I have ever seen stamped prior to that they were not date stamped .

Re: Soooo... I'm thinking about getting a Leedy kit

Very rare color and a floor tom for them is going to be very difficult which is why they have been for sale for a VERY long time .
