Re: Cutting a bass drum head

The myth of oil between the layers of some drum heads like Emperor seems to come from a misinterpretation of Newton's rings or Moiré patterns appearing because of optical interference between the two...

Re: what year did they have the very tight Avedis stamp

Both of those trademark stamps fit the Type 2 style as far as I can see. They match on every attribute I usually test for. Is there something specific which you think looks like an attribute of the...

Re: Very Thin Old Avedis

I like the sound of that one Chromeo. The closest sounding cymbal I've got is an 18" which is a little heavier at 1240g. Mine is 1960s and has the 1.5" version of the trademark and the special cup...

The years for the stamps in the 1950s aren't known exactly, and neither are the boundaries between the decades defined exactly. There are at least 4 identified Transitional Stamps and they span the...
