Re: Slingerland/Tama

My vote is for the Slingerland! But, yes, $400 more is a big chunk of change!

Re: Unlabeled Hi hats Compared to Vintage Zildjian..Help Identify

Yes...other than the slightly higher pitch, they do sound similar! Hope you got them for a good price, too!

Hi Marc P!

As always, you provide some excellent information on all these stencil drums! I've got your book and it is a great source of information. As you pointed out, it's really the hardware...

Re: Good news, I dont have to sell my drums

Hi JC! Excellent news that you can hang onto your drums for a bit longer! Just hold onto all your collected packing materials if you can. You never know when you'll need them! As I finish up my new...

Re: Unlabeled Hi hats Compared to Vintage Zildjian..Help Identify

Hi ardrummer!

Without any identifying logos, it can be difficult to know the exact manufacture of these cymbals. Maybe one of our members will have something similar and can offer a possible...

Re: Identify Bass Pedal

The footboard does appear to be the Rogers one-piece. I can't make out enough of the frame to really tell what it is. However, given the year of the picture, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the...

Re: Collar tension screws odd MIJ hex heads-got any?

Dean,

Actually, it was only drums made by Star that used metric tension rods. I could be mistaken about this and, if so, others will chime in with additional information. The metric tension rods...

Jeff!

Glad to hear that our members have what you need! Here are some pictures to educate you on the tension rod head styles. The picture of my 1966 COB Dynasonic has tension rods with...

Re: Rogers tension rods

Hi Jeff!

With or without the little "blips"? I might have some with the blips. Not home right now, but will check later tonight when I get back.

Re: Collar tension screws odd MIJ hex heads-got any?

Dean!

I've never seen tension rods with hex-socket heads! I can't help but think that they might be as rare as hen's teeth! As green glass mentioned, you might want to check the thread size and,...

Re: Slingerland Blue Flame

The COB Gene Krupa Sound King snare drum is an excellent drum! It was Slingerland's bread-and-butter snare drum, beginning in the early 60's and included as the standard snare drum with thousands of...

Thanks to the information supplied by Ralf, it does appear that this is a legitimate Star wood shell!

Re: Pearl Masters Custom snare question

If I'm not mistaken, I believe this is a 4+4 shell, meaning a 4ply shell with 4ply rings. I had a Masters Custom back in the very late 90's I believe, with this same configuration.

Hi Dan!

We're getting ready for a nice 4th of July out here in my new home in Calimesa, Ca! I live in a nice Senior community and there's a pot-luck luncheon at 11:30. Then, off to my girlfriend's...

Even without the original hoops, it's still a cool snare drum! Thanks for sharing!

Re: Gretsch/W&A? Hi hat clutch-how to use this??

The bottom threaded split section is a "collet", just like on Rogers Swivo parts. The split collet will tighten around the hi hat pull rod. Very ingenious and holds tight!

Re: Muffler ID?

I have a mid-60's Olympic snare drum and there is no muffler. I decided to search all the Olympic catalogs and finally found the muffler in question. It's the model 1639. While it does show mounted...

Re: Source for parts for a 60's Ludwig rail

I added a Maxwell rail to my 1967 Slingerland set. The included nuts and bolts are just inexpensive stock, the same as what you might find at your local hardware store. I found NOS Ludwig chrome...

Re: Muffler ID?

Definitely not Slingerland! While it does resemble a Premier, I've never seen a large 3" pad on any Premier mufflers. They tended to use rectangular pads or smaller round pads, either single or...

Re: Star King Beat Wood Shell

Sometimes we do things just because we can! I took all the hardware from a 60's Star-built drum and transferred them to a Keller 8-ply shell. What a difference in sound! I thought it would be a fun...

Re: Star King Beat Wood Shell

Here's a larger picture of the wood-shell Star King Beat. The description also mentions "hardwood reinforcing rings". While not maple, they were still 1-ply. The shell in the original post clearly...
