Re: WTB: Red Sparkle Drum Wrap

I'm sure you're aware from seeing other 18-in drums, but it requires 2 pieces of wrap. The good thing about Precision is that they will cut it so that the seams are lined up with your lugs. Jammin...

Re: Delmar & Precision Question

I'm not sure who makes the oyster wraps. I thought those were made by an Italian company.
You may be right that they make some of their wraps in-house though.
I remember that they placed a...

Re: Delmar & Precision Question

As far as I know, their sparkle and glitter wraps are made by Delmar.

Re: Vintage Wrap, New Kit

Nice. You should try a Keystone 24-in kick. The Keystones are very underrated drums.

Re: Paiste 602 Value

The hats are nice and I've heard good things about the Renowns. They're an import kit with a used price of $700-$800. Those Club dates sell new for about $1700.

Re: Ludwig Club Date

Be careful, the site nanny will you send you a message about keeping it vintage, or at least she sent one to me.

Re: Restored Drum Value

In my opinion it lessens the value. It becomes a players kit and that's ok, I just wouldn't expect to recoup the money spent on re-cutting the bearing edges. If edges are bad enough to need...

Re: Will My Toms Fit On This Stand?

I'm not much help, but if the rods are too big you can buy the 9.5 mm L-rods separately. For instance:

Yes, any band/artist who didn't play rock shouldn't be in the hall of fame.

Re: Another Offer

The 12-in CM tom appears to have micro classic lugs, which were used on Centennial kits, but I could be mistaken due to the angle. Classic Maples would have large or small classic lugs.

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

I'm guilty of being greedy too. I've made low-ball offers on drums, (although with respect), and I've purchased drums at below market prices, but I'm not too bothered by it.

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

Perhaps we're talking about the difference between hobbyist and dealer pricing. My belief is that professional sellers typically price their goods in order to stay in business. If they can't make...

Sellers with high prices bring out more sellers and products to the market.

Re: Ludwig Gig

Those look good on stage. Classic Maples sound great behind the kit, but I've found that they sound even better to the audience. 6 ply Ludwigs are like that too in my opinion.

Re: Advice on Mics and Set-up

I like Audix mics for everything but the kick. A seller on ebay, 'anthem-audio', usually has good prices. I believe he's located in the Northwest. Many of the Audix mics are made in Oregon.

Re: Ludwig 75th Anniversary "Eagle" Kit for Sale on Ebay-Big Beat Configuration

Clubdate64 has the dealer's catalog for this year. From looking at one page he posted, the list price for a 5 piece kit was about $2k, which would be about $5k today. I wonder if the catalog has...

Re: Ludwig 75th Anniversary "Eagle" Kit for Sale on Ebay-Big Beat Configuration

If it sells for the price it's at now it would be a steal. The snare drum should be worth the bulk of the price (as of now) and the toms are standard sized.
I don't understand the lack of print...

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

I hear ya. It's one thing to discuss prices as we are now, and it's another thing for a buyer to outright insult the seller and probably not a good way to negotiate.

Though not quite the...

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

I like reading the freakout posts. They're hilarious. They sound like they're gonna cry if you don't split up the kit.

Regarding the export fees, etc- hopefully a foreign buyer would go...

Re: Drum Wrap

That wrap is about 9 mil thick. According to Walopus' website, the typical drum wrap is ~20 to 35 mil thick.
