Re: 1900s 3.5x15.5 DUPLEX SNARE DRUM

These drums tend not to bring the big bucks, because there are relatively few collectors of them. Yours is in excellent condition, with the exception of the blown head. If I was going to sell it, I'd...

...or anyone who can help with this Ludwig-dating question.

I've attached pics of the shell, and key parts, in question.

It's a 6-lug brass shell, brazed or welded, edges are folded under, beds...

Re: Fibes drum score

Thanks for all the info. I'm pleasantly surprised how reasonable the cost is.

Regarding getting it to curve: I wonder if you could make the steel curve using a rolling pin and some gentle...

Different drums = different sounds. Ask her why she keeps so many spices in the rack.

Re: Fibes drum score

Where did you get the steel? I've been checking vendors and all they have is various types of chrome plastic.

Re: Stand organizer?

Nice. A cheaper option and just as stable is to use wood stakes from your local DIY store. Only takes 2 per drum. They sell a pack of a 12 or 18 for a few bucks.

Re: Stand organizer?

Hanging in the attic, each one from a screw I put into the beams. Keeps them tidy and it's dirt cheap.

Re: HELP! Recieved Free Vintage Rogers Drum Kit..Awesome Story

Congratulations. Don't imagine you checked with the police to see if they'd be reported missing, hmm?

Re: Dented Timbales

Metal shops can do wonders. I don't think this would have posed any problem.

However, they're probably steel shells, so they're worth about what the auction ended for.

Fred Sanford, a legend in the marching drumline world, mentioned in an article that Slingerland was developing fiberglass shells in the late '70s. He indicated the drums never made it to market.

Re: 15in 10lug Slingerland hoops top and snare

Love the TDR. Crazy as it sounds, your best bet is probably to buy another Slingie 10-lugger (doesn't have to be a TDR) on Feebay and use the rims. They go pretty cheap.
