Re: Fibes snare drums question

I've got a few crystalite Fibes snares and complete kits. Some are clear and painted on the inside like the 'black beauty' and a powder blue kit (still looking for a matching bass drum) but the smoke...

Re: Bent P-83 Lever - Repairable?

That's a great snare drum but one thought.... As Mike points out, the washers were used to increase the clearance between strainer and hoop, so I'm thinking that someone might have bent the arm out...

Re: WFL Bass Drum Hoop Width

Guys,
Thanks for measuring your WFL hoops... seems like 1 5/8" with 5/8" inlay is the winner. I'll dig around and see if I have any, otherwise I guess I'll be looking to pick up a pair.

WFL Bass Drum Hoop Width

I've had a collection of WFL orphans around for a while and finally found a 16" floor tom so the rewrap project can start. They were all bare shells, already stripped, so no question of saving an...

Re: Convert Octa to normal drums

Re: Lugs

Here's some pics of 8 of the lugs. All in great shape and hopefully you can see that they are the ones with the stamped letter at the top.
I could probably find another 8 that aren't in such great...

Re: Lugs

I've got plenty (over 40) of these lugs but just noticed a couple of slight differences.... wouldn't have even noticed if it wasn't for your comment about the ones with the fatter base....

12" * 8" Yamaha Recording Custom Tom

I've got a nice Yamaha RC kit with 20" bass, 13 * 9 tom and 16 * 16 floor tom and would love to add a 12 by 8 tom. It's a 20th anniversary kit from 1995 (I believe) so it's unlikely I'd be able to...

Re: Rogers Blue Sparkle 8x12, Cleveland Holiday

Hi, I'd be interested in this Rogers tom (assuming it's still available). I also need some other Rogers parts if you have anything available in addition to the complete drum.

Thx, Peter

Re: Clip on spur identification

Yep, they look just like the ones in the link you sent apart from the screw in tip of one of mine is different. I remember finding something that fit as the original tip was missing.

Cool link,...

Clip on spur identification

I picked these cool old clip on spurs up somewhere along the line and I can't figure out who they were made by.

Any ideas? No manufacturer name on them....

Re: 65/66 Rogers Delta Steel Grey Ripple

Wonderful kit.... I have a 12/20 (regular, not Tower) in Steel Grey Ripple and am on the look out for matching floor tom also. I hope my patience pays off at some point like yours did!
