Re: Picked up a Slingerland 80N kit this weekend

3-ply or 5ply? Did you get the hardware with it?
I'd love to get one someday also.

Re: Duplex "Spirit of St. Louis"

Not quite a "Spirit of St. Louis" kit, but still pretty cool. It is a "Spirit" snare. I didn't see any badging on the bass, and the toms are Chinese toms.
I stupidly sold a full kit when I was...

Re: Help identifying this Ludwig Strata finish

For price reference, about 6 months ago I picked up a 12/16/22 Blue Mist with the original single tom mount for $550. There are some mismatched bass t-rods and a little repaired seam separation.

Re: PureSound problems??

If you're tuning them so tight to cut into the snare bed, they're probably too tight.
Also, release tension when you're not playing or when you're storing your drum, no matter what you are using for...

Re: Big Band Kits IN L.A.

The Yankees relief corps pitched one to remember, after an impressive 7 pitch inning by starter Jordan Montgomery.
And Sanchez is a beast, love him!!!
Oh, and Judge was the real MVP! LoLoLoLo...

Re: 1965/66 Slingerland Shelbyville Stagebands

Looks like the standard location to me, offset from the center by one lug location.

Re: Ludwig Rockers? on local CL

Actually, if these are early to mid-80's, and the wrap is a quality wrap (and applied correctly), I would say they are well worth it. But, you could probably get the seller down to $225 - $250.

Longshot - 80's Pearl LB-20 Floor Tom Brackets

I know this is a longshot, but figured I try here.
I'm looking for three 1980's Pearl LB-20 floor tom brackets. Currently, there are none on Ebay.
I want there to convert a 16X14 hanging tom into a...

Re: Pearl President Series Fiberglass Shells

If you look at the 3rd pic, from top & behind the kit, you can kind of make out the "Wood Fiberglass" badges above the vent grommets.

Re: Early 80's Pearl USA Maple Rewrap

Wow! The GC website pics totally undersold the Pearl M-814X snare! I was expecting something much rougher.
It's walnut lacquer and looks great! It has an S-017 parallel strainer that so far seems to...

Re: Early 80's Pearl USA Maple Rewrap

Here are a couple of photos where I reglued the outer ply on the bottom edge on the 12" tom. The 10" did not require this. The bearing edges are great.

Re: Early 80's Pearl USA Maple Rewrap

Thanks for the compliments guys!
The pictures don't do this wrap justice. It is really deep for a sparkle, and not a glass glitter.
I think one of the things that keeps older Pearl drums from being...

Re: Early 80's Pearl USA Maple Rewrap

Found a couple of earlier MIJ Pearl maple concert toms to add to this.
Here's a pic of the pair as I got them, and after they've been rewrapped. Ordered newer 2.3mm hoops, the ones that came on them...
