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

One year later...still not sold, still $14,000. I'm sure there's no correlation.

Re: Premier Olympic Snare Drum Questions

Welcome to VDF.

RE: Heads. You can't go wrong with a coated Remo Ambassador for the batter side, and a clear Ambassador for the snare side. If you're a heavy hitter, maybe go with a coated Emperor...

Re: Vintage Premier 2000 Snare Drum 68/69 Great Cond

Nice, COB. My understanding is the beer barrel hoops and badge are the marks to look for.

Looks like that one is.

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

That's perfectly fair for you to do. I respect that. This is the beautiful thing about being able to have individual opinions.

That being said, the seller must be a crackhead.

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

I have many vintage MIJ kits (one of my Star kits is in the gallery section), and belong to numerous vintage MIJ groups. That price is insane. Even by Reverb standards.

Re: Early 1970ís Star/pre TAMA

Very cool, Sean. Those COW kits are kinda rare. I have a 70's Slingerland COW set, very heavy haha. Love it, though. Cheers.

Re: Is This Seller Serious?

Yeah, that listing has made the rounds on the vintage MIJ FB groups. The general consensus is that the seller is out of his mind. I agree. Cool kit, not $2000 USD, though.

Re: Recut Bearing Edges on Valuable Vintage drums?

I have no issues re-cutting the edges on a vintage kit, if need be. I first and foremost care about SOUND. If the drum sounds good to your ears, then leave them. However, lots of vintage kits sound...

Re: This is the Display Your MIJ Drums Thread

I figured I'd add some updated pictures of my Coronet snare (one of them).

Re: Vintage MIJ Snare Drum ID Help!

My first thought was Pearl as well. I have a 60's Pearl snare that is a dead on copy of a Slingerland model (lugs, hoops, etc), including the non-usual throw off. So, I figured this could be another...

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

At $14,000 US, I think the export fees are the least of the buyers concerns.

Speaking of hilarious, the asking price, duration of this sale, etc, is "hilarious".

I'm certainly enjoying the...
