Re: STAR drums and it's turn to TAMA in 1974

Yes, that kind of wood (called Luan or Lauan) was often used at those drums.
In general the first kits from Star (I don't know much about Pearl/ Yamaha etc. of that time) were not dedicated to be...

Re: Sonor Swinger Kit with D421 snare plus pedals

Thanks, guys.
I never considered an 'upgrade', as ALL lugs are completely in full order, functional, and not a single one is broken or has any other damage.

Email sent to randy73.

Re: Here's something you don't see often !

Yes, Sir.
There also existed another one with the same surface, but in a silver colour: called 'Chrome Zoom'.
