Re: What is a good price for this vintage Rogers set??

I was just curious. I've got all the drums I need or want and am not in the market. I do agree that it will be next to never to see another set like this with everything that is included.

What is a good price for this vintage Rogers set??

Ok, this has been on the Austin CL forever now with no takers. It's not mine and I don't know the seller.

It's incredibly cool in that the drums are in amazing shape, have the very desirable...

How will you approach that split in the bass drum wrap?

Re: Ludwig flat based snare stand question

Thanks Ludwig-dude. I guess mine is correct. It just seems like it would work better if it had a small spring. Maybe I'll try one out anyway.

Ludwig flat based snare stand question

Hey all, should there be a spring over the carriage bolt at the snare basket? Mine does not have one and I have to keep an eye on it as the thumb screw wants to loosen. Seems like there should be...

Re: Beato Pro 1 Bags

So you wouldn't consider just selling the 16x16 bag?
Thanks

Re: Steve Maxwell Rail Mount

Mine (top and bottom) are the same size on my Super Classic. Really wouldn't make sense to use two different sized bolts and nuts.

Craviotto Walnut Drum Set 20x14 / 14x14 / 12x8

Hello all,

I need to let this wonderful set go as I just acquired another Craviotto kit with bigger drums that better suites the music I mostly play. Yes, I know they're not vintage, but...

Re: Ludwig Internal Muffler Rattle!!!

Easy fix. Take the whole thing apart. Take the arm(connected to the muffler) to Lowes and pick up some rubber O-rings. They should be small enough to fit snug around the rivet, but big enough that...

Re: Austin Craigslist Steal

I checked out the drum day before yesterday. Left work to go get it and was super excited. It's a fake. Aluminum shell painted flat black with some kind of weird oil all over it. I suspect it was...

Re: Yamaha flying dragon pedal

I have one that that used to be my primary pedal. Now it's on my at home practice set.

It's a very nice pedal, but mine needs one of the bearings replaced as it makes noise. If the new version...

Smile Re: Amazing Rogers find if you have a fat wallet!

;)No, I'm not really criticizing the price. Just kind of in awe. And the completeness of the set, right down to the original boxes, is amazing.

I would love to have it, but my wallet just isn't...

Amazing Rogers find if you have a fat wallet!

Check out this craigslist posting. It's about 5 minutes from my house, but I need another drum set like I need a hole in the head.

Price seems really high, but then I've never seen one this...

Re: what to do with my Leedy Snare

Not to take the focus off the drum or to hijack the thread, but to me, it looks like the drum sat in someone's garage for 30 years. To me, that's not patina; that's neglect.

Patina to me is an...

Re: Ludwig Carl Palmer Venus snare problem

Well, that's a big, giant step in the right direction. Hopefully they'll make it right, at least for you. How many other drummers bought one of those drums? Will they make it right with all who...

Re: Ludwig Carl Palmer Venus snare problem

Can't blame you one bit. I would've done the same thing. I was intrigued by one of those drums when I saw one first hand, but ran away after I read your posts! Saved me some grief, but I'm sorry...

Re: Ludwig Carl Palmer Venus snare problem

A guy on Drummerworld started a thread on this. Evidently, the drum is very poorly designed in the snare throw aspect. Can't ever really turn them off. That guy is / was pretty angry at the...

Re: 1920's Ludwig Black Beauty - Wave Pattern

Something sounds fishy to me if a potential buyer has specifically asked for pics of the light connection and is ignored by the seller.

I could see this kind of behavior on ebay, but on this...

Re: Sonor Sunset Beech Bop Set. $1549

If the matching snare was included, I might be inclined to trade my 1966 Ludwig Super Classic for it. It's in perfect condition.

Re: Vintage Ludwig Super Classic Bass Drum hoop question.

I'd buy that set in a heartbeat. Refinish the hoops and watch ebay for some similar inlay to add. That snare is very desirable by itself

Re: Tom mufflers: Use them?

I have a fix for rattling mufflers. At least for the round felt Ludwig type. Most others are similar.

Mine rattled where the steel disk is grommeted to the arm. That loosens up over time and...
