Re: Uneven lug factory placement???

I've seen a couple "doozies" (or should I say don't-zies) like this. I once had a Premier snare that literally had the snare beds on one side off by one panel. If the "big" companies can't always get...

Re: NDD: New Drumset Day

My favourite Swingstars from around '84, with the "box lugs". I had a set, also cut down to "trad" sizes & remember them sounding very good, kinda Fullerton Rogers-ish. Somebody did a good job with...

Re: Evans 360 uv1

Not only do they look new forever, but last year I took one off a snare that had been gigged for almost a year & it wasn't concave at all, flat like out the box. Crazy!

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Ludwig Drums

I love drums from all the big companies (& deal with their design flaws), but I think part of the Ludwig Magic is in the numbers. I can sit down at my '63 Super Classic, throw some old A's on there,...

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?

Re: Rogers Red Onyx Drums

I'm surprised these are still here! I play with pretty well nothing but players grade Rogers kits & have never been happier. My 14x20 is the best kick I have ever owned.
