Re: Ludwig 1123 (Spur-lok) spring action not working

Glad it worked out for you! I've rebuilt quite a few Ludwig, Rogers and Slingerland hi hat stands over the years. When complete, they've all functioned like-new!

Re: Yamaha Club Custom Black Swirl

Hello brentcn... and Welcome to the forum! The kit in question is a more modern kit. The majority of our members tend to deal with vintage kits and may not have what you're seeking. You might try...

Re: Slingerland 9x12 Tom Yellow (Gold) Satin Flame

A few things to note: Slingerland didn't have a 9x12, so your tom is either an 8x12 or 9x13. Next, and the biggest issue I see, is that tom mount. Appears to be a Pearl from the late 60's to early...

Re: Modern Drum Syndrome

Which tom holder are you referring to? Can you provide a picture or link? I looked at the available offerings at Mapex and didn't see anything I would consider "Terminator-like"!

Re: Assembly of the "new" Dynasonic

Ploughman!

Thank you for weighing in on this topic. My feelings about Swivo hardware mirror yours. My first pro kit, as mentioned previously, was a 1972 Celebrity outfit. Owned it for 10 years....

Re: Assembly of the "new" Dynasonic

Completely agree with both of your posts. But to make the statement that Swivo hardware sucked makes no sense. The history of Swivo hardware speaks for itself and I'll just leave it at that!

Re: Drill and Mount or leave alone?

Makes complete sense! Go with the Maxwell rail. The upper section is modeled after the Ludwig part, using the better geared tilter vs the clock-face unit.

Re: Assembly of the "new" Dynasonic

Completely agree with you on all points! I didn't bother to view the video because I've seen it before. Any issues, as you mentioned, are in the minority. There were just way too many drummers using...

Re: Assembly of the "new" Dynasonic

Yeah...they sucked so bad that the Swivo holder was installed on many of Ringo's kit's! Honestly, what is it that you don't like about Swivo hardware? You need to view them from what was available at...

Re: Assembly of the "new" Dynasonic

That's what I would love to see, but imagine it would be really expensive to duplicate. Still, they've already duplicated the snare rail and muffler. Although, that's probably fairly easy compared to...

Re: Orange snare drums

Hi Michimo... and Welcome to the forum! What a cool snare drum! The lugs look like Slingerland. Are they original to the drum? Really interesting, and over-engineered, snare mechanism! Is it working...

Re: Weatherking Ambassador Coated versus Ambassador Coated

Hoppy gave a good explanation! It's really just a change in marketing. Remo simply dropped the "Weather King" stamp. No difference in the head, though. There are still hundreds of NOS heads out there...

Re: Late 60's Yamaha C200 dressed in blue thunder

A beautiful kit! Love the sizes and wrap! Yamaha was building excellent drums compared the "stencil" kits of the time. Yamaha built the Rogers R-360 and R-380 drums, starting in 1968. Thanks for...

Re: Drill and Mount or leave alone?

Here are some pictures of the Maxwell rail on my 1967 Slingerland kit, with a 14x20 bass drum. For an 18" bass drum, you could even put the rail centered between the top lugs. Does your Gretsch use a...

Re: Weatherking Ambassador Coated versus Ambassador Coated

Hi Dan!

I wasn't aware there was a difference. Aren't these the same heads?

Re: Radio King white paint interior?

I believe you are correct about no sealer. Many of the solid shell RK snares I've seen have looked so nice on the inside that I looks like a sealer.

Re: Radio King white paint interior?

To my knowledge, all RK interiors were natural maple, with a clear sealer, but never painted. Our other esteemed Slingerland experts will probably weigh in shortly!

Re: Danny Carey Signature Snare Drum Value

The fact that the OP is almost 7 months old, with no further replies, tells me it's no longer relevant.

Re: Rogers 1961 wood Dyna-Sonic

Very nice! Got to say, though, that my OCD is kicking in with regards to the lower hoop and snare bridge, both of which are backwards!

Re: Gretsch Max Roach bottom snare hoop question

I think you are correct about this. I was only focused on the hoop being a Gretsch and forgot to consider the drum it was being used on.

Re: Gretsch Max Roach bottom snare hoop question

Hi Rick!

It's definitely a Gretsch hoop! Here's a link to a snare drum on eBay with the same hoop. Personally, I think it's an odd way to route the snare wires/strap, but that's what Gretsch was...
