Re: WTB 60s MIJ Star hardware (Lyra/Majestic)

Vater!

I have a Star BB muffler, missing only two parts that I just fabricated today. You can see from the pictures that I made that spacer from a brass tube and made the "L" bracket from a spare...

Re: Packing and Shipping Nightmares

I recently received this pictured snare drum from an eBay seller. BTW, this is the "before" picture! While the seller packed the drum well, it was in so much bubble wrap and tape that trying to...

Re: WTB 60s MIJ Star hardware (Lyra/Majestic)

Hi Vater!

Did you ever find your (6) 2.5" tension rods and BB style muffler for your Lyra/Majestic kit?

As to your new reply to "betterlatethannever", I have a feeling he'll never see it. This...

Re: Which separated first, the shell or the re-ring?

Hi V!

I've had lots of vintage MIJ kits over the years and have been fortunate that I haven't had this issue! Honestly, it does look like the thin shell is separating from the rings. Nothing that...

Re: Another Rogers Price Check

Hey JR! When I first read your post and saw the pictures, I felt they'd easily be worth at least $800, if not a bit more. So, yeah, worth definitely more than $400! As to the collet noses, I'm seeing...

Re: Slingerland Model 804 Flush Base Hi-Hat Stand Repair/Mod

Excellent work, explanation and pictures! Glad I had the rubber heel piece for you! I have two 804 stands and have always liked this model, but, like you, was never a fan of the hinged rod. I just...

Re: Delmar & Precision Question

Delmar is the major supplier of drum wrap. Both Precision and Jammin Sam offer their wraps. Yes, same quality and thickness.

Re: In your opinion why did Bonham start playing vistalites?

This is also what I feel is true. I think that John was intrigued by the Vistalite (acrylic/plexiglass) concept and figured he'd give them a try. Probably the same for the stainless steel kit...and...

Re: I'm looking for some help with this Slingerland Two to One COB

Any good chrome polish is all you need to clean the shell, hoops, lugs, etc. For shell dents, I've used special tools for automotive dents. Did a great job! For chrome polish, I use Mother's brand.

Re: Vintage Yamaha Recording Custom Snare Question

Hi Ken!

If we're talking about the original RC snare drum, yes, they came with 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops. I did a quick search of new RC snare drums, too. The majority still come with...

Re: Price check on Rogers Holiday

I noticed that, but to me it wouldn't be important as I wouldn't use that tom anyway. Still, those missing items are a good negotiating tool!

Re: Price check on Rogers Holiday

A great looking kit! Probably around 1964-66 and in a Headliner/Constellation type of configuration. The second Tower tom was certainly an add-on and could be sold separately. The second Swivo arm is...

Re: Rogers Tower Snare Found

I was very fortunate to get my Tower for $200. It was incredibly clean, too! Rogers drums with "Cleveland" tags go up to 1966. By 1967, they would be "Dayton" tags. The drums were still all made in...

Re: Need Snares for Tamara King Beat

Hi Steve!

Drummaker is still selling these. Supply is probably limited, since they show as "closeout". I purchased these wires some years ago and they work great on the Tama King Beat and Rogers...

Re: Rogers Tower Snare Found

Tower snare drums are excellent! The differences between the Tower and Powertone are the strainer, butt and interior paint. I converted my Tower to a Powertone. It's one of the best sounding snare...

Re: WTB: Wing screw for Slingerland SOM tom mount

These are always specialty screws and aren't cheap. What are you willing to pay for one, with shipping? Just want to get a feel for your needs vs price.

Re: Drums

Thanks for confirming that you need tom arms. As jr noted, these arms are used on many kits today and should be easy to find.
