Re: Premier Expert Please

Hmmm...neither of those drums seems to have 10 lugs. The beaded one may be a student model, but I'm not sure. I have one of those 2000s, and it sounds killer! Very much like my aluminum Supra from...

Re: Another Ludwig

Sweet! How's that BD sound with the Aquarian Modern Vintage? I really like those heads for my old luddy snares.

Re: Paiste 602 Value

Those are great...I foolishly passed up on a matching set (ride & hats) some 25 years ago. I've since picked up a great 20" ride from the same era (60's) as the hats you have your eye on. I'd love to...

Re: Is this a Buddy Rich model snare?

Thank you TommyP! Great info. Your '55 WFL is outstanding! Question about the lug casings: Your bowties seem to be more 'rounded' on the corners than mine. Was this one of the transition...

Is this a Buddy Rich model snare?

Hello all. Question for y'all about a snare I've owned and played for years. I bought this snare for $40 from a lady on the sidewalk outside of a pawn shop in Crown Point, Indiana back in the...

Civil War "Yankee" snare

Spied this one at a local antique store. I know nothing really about the drums from the Civil War era, but even so I think they're out of their mind at this asking price. Couldn't find any...

Re: 60s Supraphonic Shootout!

Sorry it's taking a while. I'm trying to figure out how to shoot the video with my phone, but use the audio from my good microphone.

I'll post a follow-up when it's ready.

60s Supraphonic Shootout!

Re: Slingerland tuning help

I'd get away from tuning the batter and reso heads to the same pitch as each other in this situation. Try taking just the batter down on your 14". As a general rule, I tune my reso tom heads a minor...

Re: This is the Display Your Sonor Drums Thread

My early '90s 3000s in Scandanavian Birch. Not pictured is the 8", but I have it, too. Not exactly vintage, I know, but I sure love 'em! But, hey, at least the Luddy snare in the pic is a '63....

Pearl B4514 Resto-Mod

Hey y'all. So, I wanted a new 'old-school' look for my old COB Pearl, which is one of my absolute favorite snares. I will go so far as to say that, to the ear, she rivals my 1960 COB Supra!

What...

Hmmm....Rocker?

Picked this up at a yard sale. It was pretty rough. Appeared that someone had removed the wrap and had done a poor job of staining and such. I took it back down to wood and refinished it myself.

Thanks for any advice!

Early Tempro snare?

Anyone know enough about Tempro to know if this badge is from an early run? I certainly don't know, and from what I can find online this was one of the earlier badges. Also, this 6-lug 5x14 drum does...

Alright, gonna get into your ears a bit. What are some of your favorite recorded BD sounds, and why? Also, how do you think they got that sound?

Re: Is this Orange Mod for real?

Very good. Thanks for the replies. The drum is at my favorite used gear store in Greenville, SC. The owner was skeptical about it being legit, and I told him I'd reach out to the VDF community to get...

Is this Orange Mod for real?

Spied this one yesterday. I'm not familiar enough with the black/white badge era (early '80s?) to make a call here. The wrap is perfect on this snare. Almost too perfect, as the badge shows some...

Re: For you Slingy-heads

There are 2 cymbal brackets on the BD, opposite of each other. I assume one for ride and one for splash?
The birdseye interior of the one FT is legit. I took other pics but didn't include in my...
