Re: Another Delusional Crack Smoking Seller

I have many vintage MIJ kits (one of my Star kits is in the gallery section), and belong to numerous vintage MIJ groups. That price is insane. Even by Reverb standards.

Re: Early 1970ís Star/pre TAMA

Very cool, Sean. Those COW kits are kinda rare. I have a 70's Slingerland COW set, very heavy haha. Love it, though. Cheers.

Re: Is This Seller Serious?

Yeah, that listing has made the rounds on the vintage MIJ FB groups. The general consensus is that the seller is out of his mind. I agree. Cool kit, not $2000 USD, though.

Re: Recut Bearing Edges on Valuable Vintage drums?

I have no issues re-cutting the edges on a vintage kit, if need be. I first and foremost care about SOUND. If the drum sounds good to your ears, then leave them. However, lots of vintage kits sound...

Re: This is the Display Your MIJ Drums Thread

I figured I'd add some updated pictures of my Coronet snare (one of them).

Re: Vintage MIJ Snare Drum ID Help!

My first thought was Pearl as well. I have a 60's Pearl snare that is a dead on copy of a Slingerland model (lugs, hoops, etc), including the non-usual throw off. So, I figured this could be another...

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.

Speaking of hilarious, the asking price, duration of this sale, etc, is "hilarious".

I'm certainly enjoying the...

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:
