Re: School closing/ dumpster save Dean finds a circa 1938 Sling Radio King almost

Nice find! Looks like it had the extended bridges/butt and a 3-point strainer...with a few additional holes, possibly from a replacement strainer.

Re: dynasonic parts, original or from later

Those lugs, with the C-clip inserts, are correct for the serial number of this Dynasonic.

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

Definitely not a common set. The 14x10 (or 10x14 for many of us!) strikes me as an odd size. Having that huge tom mounted on the consolette of the 20" bass drum certainly isn't my favorite setup! The...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

Concerning what O-Lugs posted, I also noticed the L arm for the rail consolette as not being original. As to the shell layup, it could be maple/poplar/maple. I was basing my layup of...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

Hello Kaplana...and Welcome to the forum!

Based on the serial numbers alone, the kit is possibly very late 60's to early 70's and will have some of the best shells that Ludwig produced, meaning...

Re: Rogers Fullerton Green Label

What would you like us to tell you? The brown has simply faded to green. Just seems like you have a need to believe that this is some rare label.

Re: Rogers Drum Talk video discussing some of the Swivomatic era gear

Here's a picture showing how the two set screws are positioned for the Swivo arm. You are able to turn the hex shaft so that two of the holes are opposite the direction that the upper shaft enters...

Re: Slinger 64 red sparkle price reasonable?

Yes, $179 is a good price. About the only thing missing is the gum rubber washer on the Rapid strainer stem. Very common due to age. The rubber dries and rots and just falls apart. Attached is a...

Re: Dating Rogers Holiday kit and Dyna-Sonic snare

Good to know. I was comparing this to my 1972 kit, which yellowed a bit, rather than turning dark.

Re: Dating Rogers Holiday kit and Dyna-Sonic snare

Hello yngbld113...and Welcome to the forum!

Nice kit! What you have is the very popular Headliner kit. I've got the same thing, wrapped in original blue sparkle. Your kit dates to around 1965-66....

Re: 1960ís Slingerland 8 Lug Snare Questions

Definitely not worth that kind of money. It's obvious the store doesn't know drums and thinks that because it's old, it must be expensive. It's a student-level drum and sells accordingly.

Re: 1960ís Slingerland 8 Lug Snare Questions

This drum is approximately 1965 and is the Student Model Snare Drum. The size looks like a 7x14, in a mahogany finish, catalog number 157. Here's a link......

Re: Ludwig snare input please

This is the exact drum I was thinking it would be. The dropped gate snare-side hoop is required for the snares to fully disengage. Looking at the drum in question, the proper hoop does appear to be...

Re: Slingerland White Satin Flame

Looking back through cataloged kits from the 70's, it does appear that 24" bass drums had 2 pair of spurs. Not sure why your WSF 24" bd only has one set. With Slingerland, anything is possible!

Re: Slingerland White Satin Flame

Hi AlloyBoy!

You did good at $350! Yes, your kit is from 1970-71. As stated above, the interiors were painted white. The interiors would have been the "chocolate milk" interior, not clear maple. ...

Re: Advice on Slingerland COB

It's the Gene Krupa Sound King snare drum! They were made by the 1000's and were usually the standard snare drum with the majority of cataloged kits. The "snare extension" you are referring to was...

Re: Is this a Ludwig Standard pedal?

Hi K.O.!

I should have said "IMO"! As to the leather strap version, is the strap easy to replace?
