Re: Lawton P.A. Drum Show, Sat Oct 19th

I'll have a booth there.

Here is a facebook post that I found from two other guys who are also hosting booths.

Re: Ludwig Standard

Nice pick up and a beautiful color. Personally, I would have walked away if I couldn't get the matching snare as well, just something about keeping things together for me. Owner had an emotional...

Re: 22" 50,s hollow logo Zildjy

Hogwash. New cymbal makers are trying to emulate the sound that you possess in that 50s cymbal. What does that tell you?

Re: Rogers dynasonic

Rare? You bet! One of a kind I would say. What other 6.5 seven line has custom snare beds?

Now, as for value I would say, someone took a $750 snare and turned it into a parts drum.

Hopefully...

Re: Help dating a Kent kit?

Yes, USA. Like KO said earlier, many of these shells were one long ply spun around several times. On the one 60s Kent kit I had, that was the case for the snare and toms, but not the bass.

Re: Rogers Big R Set: Are They Worth The Asking Price?

That's a hard-to-find color, and gorgeous as well. If you're going to keep it, it all depends on YOU.

I assume that kit was produced near the end of the Rogers run, when they had switched from...

Re: This Is The Least Active Forum Ever

Having VDF (and DFO) are so much better than the FB groups, even though I am active there as well. You can't do research on FB pages. Asking for opinions, yes; showing off your new pickups,...

Re: Experienced & veteran rehab guys-stripped lug troubles

No expert on Gretsch, but that did not happen on my mid/late 60's round badge kit. Brooklyn-to-Arkansas QC issue? Just guessing, I have no idea why.

I suppose you could try the JB Weld product...

Re: Rogers kit with Dynasonic 1100 in Kalamazoo CL

Blairn is correct - $300 to $350 is the market rate for well-preserved 5 line 60s Dynasonics. A 7-Line may well bring $500.

Re: Sling set 70s ID potential buy for Dean

Personally, I think your valuation is a bit high. As much as we'd like to hope otherwise, Slingerland realized prices just aren't there, in comparison to L-R-G et al. If you aren't planning to keep,...

Re: My First Rogers Foray! I Have some questions........

Those 32xxx drums are likely to be three ply Keller, instead if the more well-known 5 ply Keller shells, found on Cleveland drums from about 1964 on.

Can't stress this enough (pardon the pun) - if...

Just for posterity, i'm attaching the CL pics that I saved so everyone can see what we were talking about.

The Ludwig lot sold for $1550 p/s and was sold to a party over the phone. The Yamaha lot...

Re: Day late

No worries, and I don't know who got either kit. The executor of the estate was kind enough to text me afterwards and fill in the details, that's why I know what they went for.

Sure, YRC=Yamaha recording custom. While we're here:
YMCA= Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute, etc.

Re: WFL Classic snare strainer restoration question

So what is on there now is a Slingerland 3 point?

Unless you're a WFL purist, i'd leave it alone. The damage (ie mod) has already been done, and the mix of brands is now part of its history. At...

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?

Yes, mine are 750xxx serials, which puts them among the very early b/o badges, 1969. The 13 was added later, has an Oct 70 date stamp, but still incredibly rich depth. So as KO pointed out, the 69/70...

Re: WFL and Ludwig

Hey Dad R,

Not as much mystery here as you might think. After 1955, Ludwig and WFL were indeed 'the same shop', as that's when WFL Sr bought his name rights (as well as his old Ludwig&Ludwig...

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?

Yes they are mine, my first Hollywood. Always had 13 16 22 Ludwig's up to this point. Nothing beats that 3 ply sound! Although I will be selling them after a while, as I can't keep them all.

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?

I am sorry guys, but you just can't compare this to Grandma's house. Unless grandma had really good taste and friends at Delmar, Flooring Division.
