Re: Rethinking Sabian B8

There are a few B8s that I've come across that were seriously nice cymbal sounds. I've always liked the B8Pro China's and such. The B8 hats can age into some very dry and funky hats. I've played a...

Re: Ludwig 18" Club Date

Nicely played, Eric. You kept the slime at bay and helped the kiddo get some great dough for a sweeeet old drum. Very nice! Great ethics!

Re: What do you value more?

Cymbals ... by a long shot.
Very few things will destroy a song quicker than some weak sounding crashes or a clangy ride.

Re: My Ears vs. Drum Dial

Drum Dials and Tension Watches are just tools. They weren't meant to replace the ear, nor should an aged seasoned drummer have to rely on such tools. There is a place and certain situations where...

Re: How long does it take for Vintage Luan to Cure

I'm with Calfskin. They were never built to be Great Drums. They were profit based and very little more. Cure? Nope. Just old cheap drums that could sound good with some work ... maybe, depending on...

Re: Ludwig Shells across the 70's to 90's

Without pics, it would be speculation via your observation ... both would be flawed. When you post pics, the goodness will flow from the noggins of the informed, bless 'em.

Re: Vintage 60's Natural Maple 5 Piece Slingerland Kit

Amen! Well said. The drums are not worth "much" and dad obviously loved them. Hold 'em, says me.

Re: Poplar shells? your 2 cents..........

Poplar (single species) shells are not a good sound to my ears. Very unpleasant.
Basswood ... Asian Lime ... whatever you wish to call it ... is a much more pleasant drum sound to me ... if we're...

Re: Anyone interested in a Kent Resto project?

A guy literally just dropped off a 60s gold sparkle (or orange ... can't really tell) Kent bass and tom ... and an MIJ floor. Original Kent heads. I came home and found them on my grilling porch....

Re: PayPal/FBI Fun (and a pat on the back for 'em)

My PayPal account was not attached. It was loaded with a bit over 400 dollars, as that is my quick play money account ... for stands or hoops, etc.

Re: Vintage 60's Natural Maple 5 Piece Slingerland Kit

I own a 79 Oak kit. That does not appear to be a 79 Oak kit. Late 50s to early 60s bass Ts with an unusual ply of wood on the outside AND a late 60s to 70s bass tom mount. It's an oddball. Very cool!...

Geez, stop trying to rule the freekin' roost.
It was a simple thread that asked a very simple question ... until Mark (or anyone else, for that matter) questioned your simple point.

Re: 1983 Yamaha Tour Series

I've got some cats that also call the 7000 and 8000 and both variations of the 9000 series Real Wood and the 7000 series Dark Wood. It depends decidedly on the year and the cat. I've got a Japanese...

Re: Tama RoyalStar rare build

The SuperStar line (late 70s-mid 80s) is absolutely fantastic. They are flat out amazing drums. Beautiful Japanese Birch shells perfectly formed with stunning finish work and SING like...

Re: 1983 Yamaha Tour Series

Very neat kit.
Honestly, I should have just noted that the lugs were not pyramid, and I would have known it was an 8000. Just wasn't paying attention. Those have gotten much darker over the years....

Re: 1983 Yamaha Tour Series

I assumed your kit ran the 7000 series numbers. I was unable to verify the actual numbers on the badge. Your kit appears to have the darker of the two finishes.
9000 series was called Real Wood....

Re: Tama RoyalStar rare build

I want to add that not all of the Brazilian Grain kits are single ply. That's going to make it a true treasure hunt. I've recently checked out a kit that had plies. My kit is single ply. Another gent...

Re: Tama RoyalStar rare build

ooooops ...

I misspoke. These are not Rosewood. These are single ply Shina ... which is from the Asian "lime" (not the citrus!). We call it basswood. Anyway, this should be correct now. I...

Re: Tama RoyalStar rare build

Thanks Jag. The RoyalStars are listed in several cats, but they are the "cheaper" layup build outs. Not bad drums, but not anything outrageous.
This RoyalStar Rosewood kit is listed in only one...

Re: Tama RoyalStar rare build

These appear to be single species Brazilian Rosewood. The ply layup is aligned to the grain. Simple and cool. Brazilian Rosewood has been used in acoustic instrument manufacturing for hundreds of...
