Re: Kidney/Comma shaped drum

One thing is for certain; drummers are essentially conservative creatures who don't like too much change from the norm. Drums have to be round and tubular, with heads on top and bottom. Anything...

Re: Beatles Q

Probably Premier. I don't think Trixon was around at that point.

Re: Leban Drums

Ken, I love this Oyster Red finish. I know a while back I said I was done with MIJ sets, but these drums were the correct larger sizes for me, and I couldn't get them out of my mind. I contacted the...

Re: Leban Drums

Ken, thanks for your reply. The seller and I cut a deal before that works for both of us. I'm picking them up next week. The color is Red Oyster. After I get them, I'll decide what to do with the...

Leban Drums

Last year, I mentioned being interested in a Leban set that I'd found locally. Sizes are 13/16/22 and matching 14" snare. It's a rare finish that I like a lot. The bass drum and rack tom are in...

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

Yes, of course. He bought them from his former drum teacher, who ordered everything special from W&A. As I said, I think the seller has a sentimental attachment to these drums and is in no rush to...

Re: Lido Supreme...just a Lido with sour cream?

I'd leave the Ludwig tom mount on there. It's much better quality than any 60's Japanese
one you'd find. I would also carefully remove the wrap off the virgin bass drum and keep it aside for the...

Re: what do you do when......

Good advice. I always played the hats or ride until I could find the 2 and 4 backbeat again. It happens extremely rarely today, fortunately, but it happens to all of us sooner or later.

Re: Cymbalholic Site Closing down

I'm not surprised that Cymbalholic is going under. I was a member and tried to get on recently after years away, only to be told I couldn't. I have no explanation for that and was offered none. I was...

Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

No doubt, they're in phenomenal condition, especially as satin flame drums go.

But I still think the seller is out of his mind. Laughing H

Re: 1968 Slingerland 80N Buddy Rich model in Tangerine Satin Flame

I'd love to have a satin flame set, but most older sets are so cracked and scuffed up, which was normal for these drums. I'm also a guy who does not use cases or covers for local gigs. I just pack my...

Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

$1971 for this? Granted, the set is in nice condition, and there are Zildjian cymbals included, but still?

Nearly $2000 plus shipping for a stencil set? I think not.

I get that stick wrap stuff from D'Addario, and I rarely drop a stick anymore.

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

Is that the red swirl Walberg & Auge set in NYC? The seller is a nice guy, but he did exactly what you said; dropped the price around Christmas and then bumped them back up. I've talked to him...

Re: Bosphorus

I have a Bosphorous 22" Wide Ride that I got from the company when I endorsed the cymbals in 2006-7. That's another story altogether that I won't expand upon right now. Let's just say I terminated...

Re: Is This Seller Serious?

Just to update, the delusional seller of this drumset never responded to my email. He's going to have a rude awakening when nobody even comes close to his price.

Re: Here's A Nice MIJ Set Priced Right

Well, I'm going to pass on them. I don't want them that badly anyway. If I get another MIJ set, it's got to be some other rare finish. Not a big fan of gold drums. Got my eyes on a Leban set in my...

Re: Here's A Nice MIJ Set Priced Right

The seller texted me before telling me he had three other people interested. I just said thanks, I'll consider them and that was that. Truth is, it's a rare finish, but it doesn't knock me out. He...

Re: Here's A Nice MIJ Set Priced Right

Yeah, that's the one. Thanks.

I just got off the phone with the seller. Seems like a nice guy who is more interested in trades, it seems. I'm interested. We'll see. I have never seen that finish....

Re: Is This Seller Serious?

Re: Is This Seller Serious?

Now, this is a set I'd consider, because they are in primo condition with new heads. And seemingly priced sensibly. Listed at just shy of $425 and there's a Make An Offer. I just wish it was a 22"...
