Re: Acrolites......Reverse Economics?

Ludwig snare drums have loads of mojo. Personally, I think they are generally mediocre drums with often quite poorly designed hardware (lugs, strainers), but for some reason, their mojo drives prices...

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

gwm,

What a nice looking kit! So, the rewrap didn't affect the sound negatively? What sizes are they? 22 bass and 16 floor?

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

Hi Dean,

That is a more than kind offer, thank you so much. However, I too doubt that these products are allowed in the EU and that that is the reason why they are not available here...

Re: Sonor Teardrop 2

See my ca 1958 teardrop kit (picture in the original thread about johnnyringo's kit) for a really old version with center tom mount and script logo with that wrap.

Re: Sonor Teardrop 2

Congrats, Johnnyringo. George is correct about the dating. My kit - I posted a pic in your previous topic - is late 1950s. The lugs are different from yours, the badges and the tom mount. In fact, I...

Re: Sonor Teardrop

Thanks for corroborating the lug style, George. Cool about Henk's set travelling over the ocean. BTW, AFAIK and FWIW, Henk is not from Sweden, but from the Netherlands. I am from Sweden. :)

Re: Sonor Teardrop

Beautiful drums, George, thanks for sharing. Funny looking lugs, though! A bit like the old Premiers.

Re: Sonor Teardrop

AFAIK the 6 plies didn't have rerings. Oddball? Did they?

Re: Sonor Teardrop

Yeah, those are 3-plies. These shells are VERY thin, just so you know. Funny though, since I've never seen 3-plies with that kind of bass drum mount.

Re: Sonor Teardrop

The finish is called Kristall (in the German 1963 Sonor catalog (http://www.sonormuseum.com/1963-64/index.html)). Originally, it has been silver and black stripes. With age, it fades like this,...

Re: Wet sanding to remove paint from WMP

I've e-mailed 3M in Sweden (where I live) and asked about this product. Fingers crossed now, for its availability in the EU.

About 5 years ago, I bought an early 1960s Gretsch RB kit in 12, 14 and 20. Those are nice sizes, yes, and the kit sounds fabulous. However, somewhere down the line it has been painted maroon....
