Re: Majestic Drums

Re: Good Price on Acro

These have steadily gone up over the last few years. About 10 years ago you could find them around $100 or so.

Re: Flat Base Cymbal Stands

DrumBob, I sent you a Private Message about these.

I still have four left, all MIJ. They are light and will be fairly cheap to ship.

I know they can find a good home here.

Re: White Ludwig Vistalite drum value

Did Ludwig make white Vistalites? It doesn't look any different than White Cortex to me.

Are you able to verify they are Vistalite shells?

Re: Cleaning up bearing edges

I find that 220 grit really smoothes out bearing edges and cleans them up, but doesn't alter them as far as angle or cut.

I haven't used anything coarser. I also have never done it on "good"...

Re: Is this an "Official" Slingerland part?

Thanks leedy. That's a great story. However, I still need an answer to my initial question.

Do any Slingerland fans know for sure if that part is correct or not?

Thanks.

Quick (and probably dumb) question:
