Re: Help identifying shellset

Definitely made by Pearl, around 1969 or early 70's. The lugs and Swivo-style tom holder tells me this was the higher end offering. I would certainly pay $150 US for it!

Re: Vintage Ludwig Jazz Festival or Super Classic?

Great looking Super Classic! I had a feeling it was a 5.5" depth. No worries about not measuring correctly! When did you purchase your drum and extra Puresound wires? I'm guessing not recently? I...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Jazz Festival or Super Classic?

Yes, there are some differences, but, technically, the same drum. I believe your shell should also be 5.5" deep? My "Ludwig" badge is also pre-serial. Even though the butt on mine says "Ludwig", the...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Jazz Festival or Super Classic?

Here is my 1961 Super Classic snare drum, complete with P87 strainer, P32 butt, original Ludwig wires and original COB hoops. Shell size is 5.5 x 14. I believe this is the drum you are talking about?...

Re: A "rare" Rogers Luxor on eBay - only $9,995!

O-Lugs!

I believe the value "discrepancy" is from hard data from sales over the years. Wood-shell Dynasonics are rare in terms of numbers produced. While the current economy has lowered actual...

Re: Swivomatic empty hole

Pedal Pusher and leedybdp!

I believe both of you are correct! What I neglected to think about is that his pedal might be the single piece foot board. Yes, there's an extra hole there!

Re: Swivomatic empty hole

Hi Matt! Can you post a picture? Many of us, including myself, are very familiar with the Swivo foot pedal. There were some slight production changes over the years, so a picture would really help....

Re: Mexican Made PDP Drums

ardrummer!

It will be easy to re-wrap your PDP kit. As you noted, the air vents are easily removed. My PDP used logo badges that were attached with machine screws and nuts, which were also easy to...

Re: Mexican Made PDP Drums

I owned a PDP X7 kit about 6 years ago. Yes, they were made in Taiwan, but had some of the best craftsmanship I've seen on a drum set. Even the air vents were die-cast and easily removed from the...

Can you provide some large and clear pictures of the Swivo tom arms? Your only picture is just too small to really see what everyone is talking about. I know everyone would certainly...

Re: Buddy

I was never aware of any of these "New York" assertions concerning Buddy. If anyone might know something about this, I think TommyP would.

Re: latest project snare

K.O.!!

Excellent video of your new, and superb, snare drum! I really like your choice of hardware, too! Yes, the Rogers repro lugs are pricey! I had to order 10 of them for my Montineri "Dynatone"...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I, too, have never understood why vintage Gretsch drums sell for so much more than a comparable Ludwig, Rogers or Slingerland kit. I've always felt that the drumming public at large feeds this...

Re: Calling on Slingerland Experts

A beautiful African mahogany shell! Multijd is correct with his assessment of what you probably have. The badge was used from about 1928-1947. I have a 1930's 9x13 "Junior Boy Scout" marching drum...

Re: Showing off my freshly detailed Powertone

Thanks for the compliments on my kit! Yes, the same sizes as yours, but with the Knobby cymbal mount. And, yes, a real pleasure to play!

As to the adapter plate, it's a custom piece made for me by...

Re: Showing off my freshly detailed Powertone

Hi Kurt!

Yes, the Powertone snare drums used gloss paint on the interior, while Tower and Luxor snare drums had flat grey. Maybe it was thought that a glossy interior, vs flat, gave a bit more...

Re: Showing off my freshly detailed Powertone

Fantastic restoration! I've got the Tower snare drum, which is basically the same and converted it to a Powertone with a Swivo strainer and butt. The Tower has flat grey paint vs the gloss grey in...
