Re: New Gretsch vintage

Re: Rogers Holiday

You know, I once thought I could clean my Phonic kit complete like that in a couple days, I know better now. It totally revives them.

Re: Is This Premier Snare a Royal Ace or 2000

Pick it up and throw it. If it goes 50 feet it's Aluminum, if it goes 25 feet it's Brass.

Re: Old Sonor Performer pedal: how to disassemble?

Don't go under your car and scrape some, it'll have road grains in it.

Re: Old Sonor Performer pedal: how to disassemble?

No oil. Oil will drain out rather quickly. I use brake grease. I go to Autozone or NAPPA, get a little squeeze package of Brake bolt and caliper grease. Bearing grease comes in large 15 dollar cans,...

Re: Lug maintenance/restoration

Pay attention to the t-rod splay as you assemble. I put the hoop on(no head) with the lugs snug but not tightened. I move the hoop around and adjust until all the rods are plumb straight. Then I...

Re: Old Sonor Performer pedal: how to disassemble?

Put a dowel or some piece of wood on it, tap it out easy with hammer. Someone over tightened it.

Re: HAROLD "Doc" WEST... 1951 tom mounting

I don't see a BD tom mount. Everything is rim mounted, the cymbal, the cowbell, the spurs, the crutches, why would the tom not be ?

Re: HAROLD "Doc" WEST... 1951 tom mounting

I saw that too. He's got his foot on the HH and his position suggests he's playing it. That is the end of a stick just past his pinky like I hold mine a lot.

I tried to hold my 13 like that, not...

The badge is post WWII.

I think they are a line of Edgware and Stratford when B&H was running four lines which would put them before 67.

It's not my fault you don't know what you're doing or talking about. But you deserve to be told at the least.

Re: Soldering snare wires

Re: 1975 Sonor Phonics 7 piece

It's hard to see a kit like that go to the butcher. I can only hope he leaves that 505 alone.

Re: Restoring Slingerland duco paint

The catalog says it comes with 12 snappy wires,....I see 12 snappy wires in your pic. Hang on to them until one of the slingy guys here can confirm it.

Re: Restoring Slingerland duco paint

A total disassemble and re-assemble usually makes a drum sing again. Were the wires original ?
