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...

Re: Rogers 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: 1977 Slingerland Blakrome

A great looking Super Rock outfit! Excellent shell sizes and I've always like the dual spurs!

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...

Re: Star King Beat Wood Shell

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.

Re: Happy 4th

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...

Re: Hollywood Meazzi mod. President in USA

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...

Re: Star King Beat Wood Shell

I'm with teverson on this...the shell does appear to be a modern Keller. I'm just not sure that an original wood shell would have looked this nice! I could certainly be mistaken, but I'd need to see...

Re: "Japson" MIJ drums

That's a really cool kit! Except for the tom holder, all other hardware is identical to my 60's Crown kit, which I believe is Hoshino.

As to "Japson", it's probably the name or company of the...

Re: Poor economy for drummers, or something else?

Hi Marty!

I realize that you have sold the drums and what I'm saying is now a moot point, but just wanted to put in my :2Cents:

Shipping costs are now a big turnoff to many potential buyers,...

Re: Apollo guys here something you never see promo signs

I've also never seen promotional items for MIJ drums! That sign is very cool, indeed!
