Re: Repair Question

Just buy some "Split Rivets" and use a metal washer on the inside to reinforce the hole. I'm sure you can buy them in brass, & you'll need only a screwdriver & tack hammer to do the job..

Re: Vibra-Fibing shell interiors

Re: What do I do to prepare a bearing edge for staining?

Re: Ludwg External Snare Drum Mufflers?

Rogers made some mid 70's when they ceased putting mufflers in Big R Dynasonics... I still have a few which I use a lot. Tama or Pearl made them too.
