Re: New drum coming

So it has no rerings? I'd probably be working on that...There are companies making rerings,solid and ply for reasonable money.

Re: Slingerland Snare -- Original?

I'm thinking "Hollywood Ace" with "three ply laminate" shell, one of which is obviously mahogany. Maybe maple/poplar/mahogany?

Re: Rogers R-380 in "Eddie Van Halen" wrap.

Those lugs are prone to breaking. Pretty much every 380 set from that period has a few. And the interior ply...no better or worse than the CB 700's with heavy vinyl wood-pattern contact paper. Let us...

Re: New drum coming

I also would have said whoever made Gracy made that drum. Even the badge is similar. Funny that the lugs are actually very accurate Gretsch copies at least to look at. I like it...

Re: Calato Regal Tip Pedal

In my life-long search for the "perfect pedal" I owned one for a short time. One of MANY that did not pass. It ended up being sold/traded years ago. Now I collect all the Premier 252 pedals I can...

Re: Another Good Deal Gone Bad

Last fall I went to pick up an MIT set. About 45 minute drive. The pictures on C/L include all the stands. I get there-no stands. He tells me "I threw them out"...

Re: Thread count 60’s Rogers t-handles??

Are the T-rods not 12/24? The only vintage American rods that aren't are the single-tension rods that thread into another hoop clamp. As far as I know...And some obscure 30's drums.

Re: Rogers Brook Mays Snare

That Rogers snare has the same lugs as the "Thoroughbred Music" house brand "Tamco" drums did. Must have been generic MIT drums.

Re: Premier 252 Bass Drum Pedal - any schemes or manuals?

I have 5 or 6 of those pedals and have never disassembled one that far-never needed to. That looks like a roll pin driven in to hold an internal part in place. Usually there would be another hole on...

Re: Premier 1970's Royal Purple

Those drums should not be hard to identify. Premier only used those Beverley lugs for a short time. In the 1975 catalog it's called the "Powerhouse" #6500.

Re: Snare that matches Pearl Battleship Lugs

I have a DIXIE branded drum that is exactly the same as your Ultratone. The heavy chrome steel shells are much better than the later thin-wall ones. It is a Battleship-lug Pearl stencil for sure.

I cannot in good concience dismiss these drums as fakes. I am not a Ludwig expert, did not work there during this or any period. The ink stamp looks legit, the sharpie numbers not so much. The finish...

Re: Picked up some Ludwig Drums for $100...what do I have?

That clip mount is Ludwig-usually used with timbales or concert toms. I would assemble the missing parts and play the set as-is until a bass drum shows up. And red sparkle drums do show up as...
