Re: Ludwig hoop repair SOS

They make metal clips with grip material on them that slip over the hoop where the bass drum pedal attaches to prevent clamp damage to the wooden hoop. Possibly you could use one to bridge the...

Re: Let's see your drum room!!

The best name for a drum room ever...The Drumgeon! VDF member J!m has trademarked it though, so you can always call it your beat laboratory like the movie Step Brothers.

Re: Rogers Mardi Gras that got away.

I did hear back again from the seller last night. He told me that the drums were "tentatively sold" and that he would contact me if it falls through. That may fit with the out of town buyer story.

Hi Dave...damn I was hoping it might have gone to you.

It is a true testament to the maturity and decorum of the VDF that nobody has made a blue pill joke in this thread.

Re: Ludwig stainless B/O kit "barn find"

Mine are riveted, I would think they all are, but this kit is my only experience with them. These things could survive a house fire and still be playable.

Re: MIJ (Star) tension rod question.

I called DFD and explained my need to them, they said nothing they had would work? Maybe the person I talked to was uninformed?

MIJ (Star) tension rod question.

This is probably a question that has been addressed in the forum, but my research didn't turn up much.
