Re: 1950s Zildjian crash or ride or crash/ride.

The bell in the first post is 5 inch.

The rivets seem not to be factory.

I guess it is a medium ride or a heavy crash ride.

Thank you for the information.

Thanks man. The variety of vintage mystery zildjians I have will surely test that list.

Just not sure whether it's a Crash, Ride, or crash/ride.

1950s Zildjian crash or ride or crash/ride.

I'm not experienced enough with vintage cymbals to make the call.

It's got a 7/16 hole and small stamp so it's likely from before 1958 but I'm not sure it's real name or intended purpose.

Also...

Zildjian swish 20......no rivets?

I don't see that much information on "rivets or no rivets" options.

Any ideas on the ratio or "rivets vs no rivets"?

The one I have is hollow logo.

Re: Ludwig stainless B/O kit "barn find"

Be super careful cleaning them as even a paper towel will scratch them. There are threads here on experiences.

Re: Tell me about this drum

They crank those heads unbelievably tight to get that snappy sound and you often find black kevlar heads cranked ultra tight. (tighter than unbelievably tight)

Make sure the lug threads are...

What kind of cymbal is he playing?

Or is he not playing it at all and it's just there for decoration.

It's the 5 sided "cross looking metal thing".

The video is 30 years old so I guess it's vintage.

Re: Abused Ludwig Chrome Over Wood Kit

I've got a before and after pic of the two bass drums on the monster set I just sold.......and regret selling.

If it's corrosion and pitting, you can do wonders with the correct polish.

Re: Abused Ludwig Chrome Over Wood Kit

Pics of horrific condition?

You would be surprised how well they polish up.......as long as you don't damage the chrome further.

Re: Too Many Drums?

It completely depends on the "drummer's" role and the music type.

A drummer can cover the ground of both a drummer and a percussionist by himself but he would have to have the drums to make the...

Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive... aaarrrrggghhh!

What I find strange is that just about every single super sensitive I see on ebay has a lower head with the deep collar that will cause this issue.

I'm sure this affects enthusiasm about this drum...

Re: Most iconic or recognizable drum parts

Necropost warning!!!

Not so much iconic but definitely distinctive.

Jan Hammers drumming on "blue wind" by Jeff Beck is super interesting but the song would have benefitted by the drums being...

Re: Cigar band snare...with a little help from my friends

David Letterman would go crazy if he saw that.

Cigars and drums are his two favorite things.

Re: I have found my configuration

I've settled on 3 up 1 down as well.

It's probably the most toms you can get in the smallest amount of space unless you did away with the floor tom......which would be blasphemy.

Re: What are the recorded drum sounds that inspire you?

Re: What are the recorded drum sounds that inspire you?

The snare and hi-hat sound on Level 42's song "hot water" is pretty cool.

Ball of Confusion from the Duran Duran album "thank you" has stellar snare, hi-hat, and bass drum recording.

Re: Really Sensitive Super Sensitive

Here is one thing that can mess up even the best set up super sensitive.

All references to "up" or "down" are with the drum with batter head up.
