Re: Rebuild/Restore Speed King, Gretsch, Sonor pedals. Meticulous!

Thanks to BFulton for the repair of my Speedking. I think the one in his last post is mine.

I had it for so long and neglected...

Acrolite

Everything original except the bottom head. Not sure of the date, but I think around the 70s.
Needs cleaning

$125 plus shipping to the 48s only from 10541.

Thanks, Ed

I have this mount, but it doesn't line up with the hole pattern on a 9/72 12 inch tom. The top 2 holes are are off by half the hole. I can assume it was for a bass spur or a cymbal mount or floor...

Re: CMA awards

Thats the kit last night. I thought it was Tabacco Burst,but could not get a good enough look. I agree about Stapleton. Apparently he's been writing for other artists for quite sometime.

Re: Slingerland tom mount

Spurs are not Slingy, I've seen mounts similar to these before. Maybe on a Gretsch? Also on MIJ. Anyway I am going to leave as is and clean it up.
It will be a practice set for now. If I can't get...

Re: Slingerland tom mount

It is an exact match for a '60s era Premier mount. I think this was a virgin bass drum that a dealer put this mount on. The spurs are probably Premier also or MIJ.

Muffler

Is this a Rogers part? It was given to me by another drummer who said it was Rogers. I appreciate any thoughts on it.

Rogers tilter

My tilter on my Rogers cymbal stand is loose. You can't pull it off but it swivels 360 degrees. Is it possible the roll pin is broke inside? If I can't line it up to knock it through is there other...
