Re: Is this Buddy on Mardi Gras?

That rack tom looks really deep doesn't it? Looks like it not a standard 8" x 12" or 9" x 13". It looks more like a power tom.

Rogers R-380 in "Eddie Van Halen" wrap.

Re: New drum coming

Great Snare, Jeff! It looks exactly like my Gracy BDP snare, right down to the same exact badge. I'll attach a picture when I go grab it from my storage facility.

Re: 5 piece Pearl Roadshow Jazz/Bop Kit with extra 12" tom and upgrades

This is a solid deal, folks. They go for $399 new and you are getting everything they come with new (minus the crappy cymbals) for $100 less, plus a 12" tom. Heck, you and I both know that the...

Re: 70's MIJ/MIT CB 700 4 piece in Blue Glitter 12/14/20/14SD

Giving this a bump. These are in very nice shape and the glitter really glitters, especially in sunlight.

Feel free to throw out an offer to me.

I just got it. I used my brute strength (LOL) and between that and all the lubricant it finally worked.

Calato Regal Tip Pedal

Hello,

I remember seeing ads for these in Modern Drummer in the late 80's. Has anyone ever played one? There is one listed locally here on Craigslist for $25. I figured I might take a chance.

Re: 60's Ludwig Hi Hat repair

By the way jgm911t,

Pearl makes a replacement part too, but if I recall correctly it is too narrow and won't fit the Ludwigs? Anyway, at the price it's worth a shot.

Re: Ludwig Blue Oyster Hole in bass drum
