Re: Vintage MIJ Snare Drum ID Help!

Re: SONOR 8 pc Phonic Series Rosewood in/out 1975 Centennial RARE & EXCELLENT!

At $14,000 US, I think the export fees are the least of the buyers concerns.

Re: Yamaha Vintage Drum - Identification

Well, not all original edges are in great shape. I would think that's an obvious point why someone would have them done. You can have great looking, rare vintage kit, but if the edges are crap,...

Re: Majestic Deluxe Bass Drum Restoration

Hello!

I'll give my two cents:

1. Just find out what I have here (grey interior?)

Re: Head choice

This.

I'd go with coated Ambassadors top and bottom. I love the look of the coated bottom heads as well. Those AM shells will sound great with them, I have a B303 kit with AM shells to, they...

Re: Vintage Olympic Drum by Premier

Yes, different hardware, but the same shells were largely used across the various lines. Not uncommon for companies to do that, saves on costs. TS's snare and mine are same era/same badge.

Oh, you only had two stencil kits, I got the impression you had more experience with them. That's cool, its your opinion, nothing more.
