Re: Questions about this Majestic Snare????

Thanks for the comments guys. I don't normally keep any MIJ snares in my arsenal, but I think I'm going to keep this one just because it sounds so good. It's changed my opinion about MIJ snares.

Re: Rogers 9-72 Paper Labels

That graphic is incorrect. The 1972 and 1975 are switched. According to Cook's Rogers book (and all other dating guides I've seen), the 1972 label had no letter prefix with an underlined serial...

Question Questions about this Majestic Snare????

Picked up this Majestic snare at a yard sale. It was covered in years of grime and dust and missing a couple t-rods, but I thought I could clean it up and give it to one of my students. After...

Re: What make is this snare stand?

I'm starting to believe that this is a 50's or 60's MIJ copy of a 30's Hamilton stand. If it were a genuine Hamilton, it should have had the Hamilton name on it somewhere. So instead of using it to...

What make is this snare stand?

Need help identifying this snare stand. Not sure about the make or age. Some internet browsing leads me to believe it is either a vintage Hamilton, or a later MIJ copy. Any ideas? It's very flimsy...

Re: How Do You Play? Matched or Traditional Grip?

Both of course, but there's more grips than just those two.

I'm a little pi$$ed off about this topic right now, because one my percussion students was recently chastised by an audition "judge" for...

Re: Record Covers with (vintage) Drums on!

That second cover is hilarious! How is that cymbal arm staying there? That poor tensioning nut on the cymbal mount must be tightened to the point of stripping...

Re: [B]1930- LUDWIG & LUDWIG 5 x 14 CHROME/ENGRAVED SUPER-SENSITIVE MODEL [/B]

Absolutely stunning. Interesting that it took a material engineer's expertise to determine that the shell was chrome plated before the engraving and not after. But if the engraving was done into...

Re: OMG Say it isn't so . . . Neal Peart has passed

Just read the sad news online. What a loss to the world of rock drumming. I've always told my students to listen to Buddy Rich for jazz, and Neil Peart for rock. He was an incredibly intricate,...

Re: What are the rarest Slingerland wraps/finishes from th 60's-70's?

I remember so many garage-band drummers in the early 70's stripping the wraps off their mismatched, orphan drums and leaving the shells bare wood, or, rewrapping orphans with fabric or contact paper....

Re: Vintage Cymbal Stand Innovation...

Back in my gigging days, I used a Ludwig Atlas stand rather than a tripod to mount my video cam. I liked the smaller "footprint" of the cymbal stand. A standard tripod just took up too much floor...

Re: 30s pioneer at auction

I agree. We shouldn't be in a rush to "restore" every old drum we come across. Some, like this one, should remain untouched. I'd play it in its as-is condition.

Re: Wrap repair hack

I think cutting it into an angular, irregular shape would make it blend even better into the irregular diamond pattern or the wrap.

I tried something similar for a missing bass hoop inlay that was...
