Re: 1964 Ludwig BOP update....

I, too, have paid more than I thought a drum or component item should cost. I've done this due to the scarcity of that drum or item needed to complete a project. But, two grand for a snare drum that...

Re: 1964 Ludwig BOP update....

Rather than incur the wrath of Ludnuts, I'll just laugh quietly to myself.

Re: Gretsch RB pawn shop find

Sometimes, a "born together" set's drums don't match that well. You have some good looking drums there.

Re: This is the Display Your Camco Drums Thread

They look stunning under stage lights. In the early 1960s I went to see a band that played in the same area as our band. The drummer was playing a Camco set covered in White 3-D Moire. A couple of...

Re: Interesting New Ludwig

Hey! Stop picking those nits. That's MY purview. I admit that I misread the description and picked a wrong nit about the drum heads.

Re: Interesting New Ludwig

People who know me know that I have no affinity for Ludwig drums and that I don't like unwrapped drum shells. However...that is a great looking drum set offered at a very decent price. Doesn't the...

Re: This is the Display Your Camco Drums Thread

Speaking of maybe posting something earlier in this thread, I don't remember if I had posted any pictures of the Camco Tuxedo snare I acquired out of sheer coincidence after wrapping some orphan...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

I don't perceive any snark from Kona. I see a man posting about his drum set with facts about the drum set's provenance. Thanks for standing your ground, Kona. I have enjoyed reading your posts about...

Re: This is the Display Your Camco Drums Thread

larryz...We were the Kritters with a K for a couple of years before that other band had the hit record. We would have fun with that song when we would cover it on a gig. We made certain to let the...

Re: This is the Display Your Camco Drums Thread

In 1964 I bought this Oaklawn Camco set when I lived about ten miles from the factory. I gigged with them for about three years. Back then I would get a new drum set about every two years just for...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

" Must have been lots of one-offs from the named sets in the catalogue that were shipped and sold as a complete package".

I shopped for my drums at many Chicago area music stores including Frank's...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

Now, if anyone has any available vintage 1943 drums--catalog-correct or not--please let me know about them.

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

Those of us being sarcastic and "snarky" are being good-natured about it. O-Lugs and I have been happily jousting back and forth about the catalog-correct issue for quite a while. I admit that I have...

Do you think that Reverb would give a crap if you reported this deceptive ad?

Re: Wake up California - Rogers

Cracks and splits are all too common for the Onyx/Tiger-types of wrap as they mature.

Re: Wake up California - Rogers

In my not so humble opinion, the Powertone is a much better snare drum. And, a wood-shelled Powertone is even "mo better".

Re: Akron, ohio craigslist

I pretty much agree with Dan. However, for my taste, the seller can keep the Dynasonic snare and knock $500 off the selling price. Had I ordered that "catalog" set, I would have ordered it with a...

Re: Gretsch RB pawn shop find

Thank you for updating us. I would love to see the full set once you have the second floor tom back from re-wrapping to complete the set.

Re: Cocktail Drum Outfits

Irrespective of what name the outfit has, that is one spiffy drum set. The uniqueness of the drum set configuration and the rarity of the Mardi Gras wrap make for something very special. I hope that...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

O-Lugs is correct. There are no hard feelings between us. We just have a different perspective on catalog-correct drum sets vs. drum sets ordered by music stores or individuals that do not appear in...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

I'm not going to argue with you. But, let's say that I have that Gold Sparkle Gretsch set that is not pictured in the catalog. Nor, is there anything in the catalog for that year stating that some...

Re: 1959 Gretsch Gold Sparkle

Thank goodness for the catalog-correct people because they ignore the drum sets not pictured in the catalogs. Consequently, there are some bargains to to be found for those of us who don't obsess...
