Re: What the hell did I buy

Yup, Frank Wolf 2 to 1 snare drum. I recently did a small transaction with this guy, who owns a few of these snares. He may be able to shed a little more light on the company if you'd like to reach...

Re: What's with Acrolite (and Blackrolite) prices?

Bonkers is right. There's a 1970s B/O 6.5" on Reverb for $1,999 right now. I know that's a rare size and that pretty much everything on Reverb is overpriced, but that's really swinging for the fence,...

Re: Radio King Mystery?

I think the badge and diamond plate on the strainer are 1950s. I would guess the shell is 3 ply but it's difficult to see from the pics. However, there are no snare extenders on the strainer and butt...

Re: Performance Disaster

I started the wrong song in front of a couple thousand people once - that was fun!

Way back in college, my band was playing a good size private party at a lake house, and the band was set up under...

Re: 70’s Rogers Butcher Block

The snare does look like a Dynasonic from that limited picture. That whole package is a steal for $500.

Re: The Most Recorded Snare

Was curious about this as well, thanks. In my limited session work in Nashville, my least popular snare was my Radio King as well. It's great live though.

What was the snare on Budakon?

Re: 1990s Ludwig scratches

Additional pics. Appears to be brass judging by the BR stamp and brass showing in the extra holes of the shell. You can maybe see the surface blemishes a little better as well.

Price is $400. It...

Re: The 5 snares every drummer should own-The "Iconic" Snares

Given that the original post is not necessarily indicative of my personal list, but a general cross section of snares based on versatility, usage, and desirability, I'd have to say:

1990s Ludwig scratches

May not be the right spot for this, but I'm interested in knowing what might clean up the scratches on this Ludwig Black Beauty. It's not really "black" but a straight nickel finish, although it's...

Re: The Most Recorded Snare

Steve Gadd on a Supra accounted for about a zillion recordings I'd imagine. I'd assume his contemporaries in the NY studios also carried at least one around with them.

I would think that the Supra...

Re: Vintage Pearl Fibre Glass Kit Need Info Ebay Purchase

That snare could very well be steel. It has two bands around the shell as opposed to three, which is typically an easy way to distinguish steel from brass Pearls. It looks like it also has the super...

Re: Slingerland Hollywood Ace question

I did a little research on another one of the items I saw in his collection, and that one appears to be a student model Radio King. It has a 3 ply shell (probably the same as the Hollywood Ace),...

Slingerland Hollywood Ace question

Hi all,

I obtained this 1958 5x14 Slingerleedy some months ago but haven't done any work on it yet. On a whim, I decided to just throw on a new batter head and bring to one of this weekend's gigs,...
