Re: Vintage Pearl Snare

Re: I can't resist a nice sparkling pearl MIJ kit

Re: New Tama Flat Base Hardware Pack-Very close to the 60's Ludwig-$100 less than DW

Has anyone reviewed these for the forums (thread)?

Never heard of ChromaCast. Affiliated with anyone else? Look like Tama or Yamaha.

Hey MIJ fans - you need one of these

If you consider yourself an MIJ fan and do not have one of these - you should snag this up. These are GREAT sounding snares - with an adjustable butt (you can see it in the pic, and these are hard to...

Re: Vintage Stencil Drum Book

If I were very wealthy - in money and time, I would very much like to be the one who finally does this topic justice. The extent of expense it would entail would be enormous. My guess is that Rob...

Gretsch / Ming Prototype Carbon Fiber Snare Drum

This certainly is a rare drum - not vintage, but surely only a limited number of these exist.

Re: Vintage drums - need some advice

Yes, that Yammy is the best by far. Not the sound you are looking for though. I would sell the Pearl Export to raise money for the vintage woody. However, know that you will have to add much more...

Re: Flea market find (Zim-Gar)

So no,...
