Re: Happy New Year!

Since moving out of my rented storage locker, and incorporating about 20 kits into my house, my wife has been reminding me to revisit/adjust our insurance policy as well. Thank you for the reminder. ...

Re: Gretsch guys-need help: Bass drum rim placement

Flattest edge should go against the drumhead. Not certain which that would be, from your round vs tapered description.

Re: Zildjian without stamp

It happens, factories are busy places. You have an anomaly.

At the same time, plenty of Zildjian cymbals documented with two stamps. I have a 14" trans stamp era with two.

Re: Slingerland Stage Band

I like it.

And 22" stage bands are uncommon. Notice how i did not say rare?

Re: Would You Buy This

Heavens, no on the MIJ, especially if you are directly comparing the two, value-wise. Not even close.

Re: Would You Buy This

Somebody needs to figure out a way to replace the LW modular hardware in some tasteful way. Then there may emerge more of a market for these 80's/early 90's drums.

But $450? That is very...

Re: Ludwig Snare Drum L 472 Rock/Concert 14X6.5 Blue Cortex P87 Wire Strainer 1980s

Hi Dean, An interesting drum for certain. I read the ebay write-up. Perhaps it's the unfamiliarity with very late-chicago era Ludwig that many of us have. Collectable? Certainly, but perhaps not just...

Re: Lawton P.A. Drum Show, Sat Oct 19th

I'll have a booth there.

Here is a facebook post that I found from two other guys who are also hosting booths.

Re: Ludwig Standard

Nice pick up and a beautiful color. Personally, I would have walked away if I couldn't get the matching snare as well, just something about keeping things together for me. Owner had an emotional...

Re: 22" 50,s hollow logo Zildjy

Hogwash. New cymbal makers are trying to emulate the sound that you possess in that 50s cymbal. What does that tell you?

Re: Rogers dynasonic

Rare? You bet! One of a kind I would say. What other 6.5 seven line has custom snare beds?

Now, as for value I would say, someone took a $750 snare and turned it into a parts drum.

Hopefully...

Re: Help dating a Kent kit?

Yes, USA. Like KO said earlier, many of these shells were one long ply spun around several times. On the one 60s Kent kit I had, that was the case for the snare and toms, but not the bass.

Re: Rogers Big R Set: Are They Worth The Asking Price?

That's a hard-to-find color, and gorgeous as well. If you're going to keep it, it all depends on YOU.

I assume that kit was produced near the end of the Rogers run, when they had switched from...

Re: This Is The Least Active Forum Ever

Having VDF (and DFO) are so much better than the FB groups, even though I am active there as well. You can't do research on FB pages. Asking for opinions, yes; showing off your new pickups,...

Re: Experienced & veteran rehab guys-stripped lug troubles

No expert on Gretsch, but that did not happen on my mid/late 60's round badge kit. Brooklyn-to-Arkansas QC issue? Just guessing, I have no idea why.

I suppose you could try the JB Weld product...

Re: Rogers kit with Dynasonic 1100 in Kalamazoo CL

Blairn is correct - $300 to $350 is the market rate for well-preserved 5 line 60s Dynasonics. A 7-Line may well bring $500.

Re: Sling set 70s ID potential buy for Dean

Personally, I think your valuation is a bit high. As much as we'd like to hope otherwise, Slingerland realized prices just aren't there, in comparison to L-R-G et al. If you aren't planning to keep,...
