Re: 1971 Ludwig Bonham kit 26

I've never heard of this Gbase site. Which country is it located in, and what's the U.S. dollar equivalent of that asking price?

Re: Another Leedy Returns

Yes, beautiful kit, and I can't wait to see the beauty it's traded for in two months. I love JR's rotating collection.

Re: Rogers experts please

A pic of the badge number would narrow it down, but from the Big-R style snare gate, this would be a late Fullerton script Dyna, maybe 1973-1974, just before the Dyna's got the Big-R badge.

Re: Age

Let's complicate this discussion even more by trying to distinguish between "vintage" and "antique". if a '57 Chevy is vintage and a 1914 Stutz Bearcat is an antique, then my Cleveland Rogers snare...

Re: If it weren't for the local pick-up only....

We have a couple members here who could actually afford that asking price (certainly not me), but is a one-of-a-kind piece of drum history worth $85,000? It very well could be considering that...

Re: Paint stripping over a wrap

That's weird... they obviously painted the shell with the lugs in place, but since those lugs aren't painted black, someone must have taken the expense of replacing all the hardware.

As mentioned...

Re: Bass drum measurements ???

With the drum resting on a head, he measures across the 20" head from the outside of the hoops and got 22x22, then he measured the "height" of the 16" shell from hoop to hoop and got 17.5", so I...

Re: 70ís Rogers Butcher Block

That looks to be in fantastic condition. Bass and 13" tom appear to have the original reso heads. Probably the 12 and 16 do also. I'll bet the snare frame is still on the Dynasonic. Jeez, that's a...

Re: Rogers Mardi Gras that got away.

Given that those look completely unrestored, it's very possible that bass and tom aren't B&B shells redrilled for Beavertails. That might be a rare 1963 Mardi Gras bass and tom (end of the Mardi...

I can't believe that's the same set. You did a fantastic job. I remember when pearl finishes became so unpopular in the 70's that everyone was stripping shells to the bare wood and staining them,...

Re: Good Deal or Not

Blue Ripple is one of my favorite Rogers wraps, and to have that wrap with Beavertails is unusual, because Blue Ripple was discontinued as a catalog finish the very same year Beavertails were...

Re: Rogers Celebrity - 45 Years Ago!

Mark,

Just curious... that's not a Rogers set in the pic with you and Roy Burns, but it appears to have Rogers Memriloc tom mounts. I can't enlarge it enough to see the lugs. Do you remember...

Anthony,

I have a couple silver glass inlays removed from two Rogers 24" hoops. One seems more faded than the other, or they may just be from two different eras. I know one is definitely early...

Re: Windage=Vintage+heavy drinking?

What do you Ludwig guys think of the price? I have no idea of value when it comes to Vistalites. Never owned any.

Re: Snare Identification

Could very likely be a Lyon & Healy even if it has the label of a "jobber" in the interior. A jobber was a company that distributed the drum under its own name. I have a very similar drum that...

Re: Mystery.Brass Snare

I've never seen those weird lugs before. Too bad we can't get a better look at the strainer. Can you ask the seller for more pics?

Re: New Rogers Beavertails for Tom-toms??

Wow. $52 for four new Beavertail lugs? Really? What's a full set with a Dynasonic going to retail for? $8000?

Re: Thursday's dumb question of the day-Rogers

First, I'll assume you're talking about a single tom arm rather than a double tom mount. In the absence of pictures, it's a little difficult to guess which style Swivo tom arm is period correct for...

Re: 1938-40 SLINGERLAND 7 x 14 BDP GENE KRUPA MODEL RADIO KING

Simply gorgeous! Are the snares original? I would have thought there would be gut snares on that.
