Re: Heads for a '69 Supraphonic

For me, this is easy! Coated Ambassador-weight top with a Ambassador-weight for the snare-side. Chose the heads you like best... Aquarian, Evans, Remo, Ludwig, etc.

Re: How much for this Torodor MIJ Kit?

Wow! Your Torodor is in exceptional condition! My motto is "condition is everything"! I know we all complain about the high prices of MIJ sets, with the biggest issue being condition vs. price. Given...

I really like how my thread turned into baseball!! I'm a Dodger fan and realized they just didn't have what it took to win. With the Astros beating the Yankees, it's now time for the World Series. I...

Re: Slingerland/Zildjian Price Check

By "value", do you mean what you should pay or what it would be worth for resale?

As to the snare drum, yes, it's missing both original hoops. I also see that the muffler knob is not original....

Re: Snare Set Advice Needed for Vintage Acrolite

Let us know how they sound. There are lots of great snare wires available and you can hear the difference. The only issue it that it can get pricey to experiment! LoLoLoLo

Re: Leedy Drums 2

Re: Snare Set Advice Needed for Vintage Acrolite

Hey DrumBob!

I would tend to agree with you about Puresound wires. In fact, I have more Puresounds on my snares than any other brand. What I've found, though, is that Puresound wires tend to lean...

Re: Leedy Drums 2

JR! Be patient. Your nice kit just needs to find the right buyer. What some may not be aware, is that these are really Slingerland drums, but with Leedy lugs. Great 3-ply shells with solid maple...

Re: Snare Set Advice Needed for Vintage Acrolite

Hi DD!

The majority of Acrolites came with either 16 or 20 strand wires with plastic ends. Pictured is one of my Acrolites with original wires.

As the above posts point out, that Reverb kit is priced on the high side, but it is in great condition. Many VDF members know that I always say "condition is everything". The serial numbers agree...

Re: Grommets - slingerland 3-ply shells

These grommets are for Ludwig drums. Slingerland grommets are thicker aluminum and will need a proper flaring tool.

Re: Another High Priced Vintage Kit For Sale
