Re: I picked up some Premiers-Trying to date them?

Cool. So you have a B111 http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/images/premier_drumsets/1973-premier-catalog-8.jpg
Nice to have the 14" floor tom as they are definitely not so common compared to the 16"

Re: I picked up some Premiers-Trying to date them?

nice. what are the sizes? It looks like either a B202 or a B101/111 depending on the sizes. 101/111 is 20/12/14 (B101 has a 22" bass) and the 202 is 20/12 or 13/16 (B202 has 22" Bass). The hanging...

Re: These look at lot like Ringo's Premier's (I think)

the kit in the photo is early 60s, a period of rising economic growth in Britain. The fact that so many of these kits have survived is testament to their durability. I have generally found Premier to...

Re: Pearl silver logo script kit w/ beech shells

I would've said Birch. I have also had a set with a birch inner ply like Kenwood's set.

Re: 60's/70's Yamaha MIJ. To buy or not to buy??!!

Yep, that tom was one of mine to show as an example of what the shells should look like, not to be confused with the kit the OP was referring to.

I've actually had a couple of these kits in these...

Re: Rogers Dynasonic question

No "USA" on the badge indicates these are import Rogers drums. The snare is not a true Dyna and probably a thin steel shell rather than COB. Other clues to this being an Import set is the hardware...

Re: Vintage slingerland information needed

Well I'm a world away but I'd say with the later floor tom addition and yellowing of the wrap (it would've started life as white marine pearl but has turned very yellow - some don't mind a bit of...

Re: Beverley Cosmic 21 Snares?

I had a Premier 35 (as mentioned, a re-badged 21) and it was almost identical to a Supra in sound. They tend to sell for less than a 70s Supra and the 35 can often be picked up around $100-150. The...

Re: Auction for Bonham cymbal arm and heads

are those Rockers heads? Did they even come out in Bonham's life time?

Edit - I see that Rockers heads came before the Rockers line of drums so could be correct period

Re: Vintage Yamaha YD 700

I have to say the original wrap didn't look too bad but I don't mind some imperfections if it means keeping it original. That said the wrap you chose to recover looks nice and suits it.

Re: Vintage Yamaha YD 700

Nice kit. They look like regular triple flange hoops in the photos. So if this is a genuine YD-700 then the hoops have been swapped out (see photo for the YD-700 hoop). The bass drum tension rods are...

Re: Request help - ID this Ludwig Snare?

looked like a 60s Supra painted black as others have mentioned. Looks 10 lug too. Probably a heavily pitted shell that someone painted to improve the looks. Don't believe they did a 60s Black beauty...

Re: Just bought a Radio King Floor tom...

A thorough clean with warm water with a bit of soap as there was a lot of grime. Then Novus polish. I usually only use No.2 but in this case started with the No.3 due to the heavy scratches. Still...

Re: Just bought a Radio King Floor tom...

I think you're right about the legs. Something tells me this drum is late 30s with the green twin pad muffler. They didn't use FT legs until the later 40s according to Mark Cooper's excellent...

Re: This is the Display Your Leedy Drums Thread

Re: 1960 ludwig Transition Badge Pioneer.

I have a Jan 1960 Pioneer that came with the original 1959 Playon heads. I changed them to Remo Ambassadors and then changed them straight back. It just sounds more comfortable with the old heads...

Re: The Mystery of the Aussie Leedy Full Dress Drums

That's an interesting theory.
I also wonder if the Full Dress designs didn't catch on and a bunch of unsold stock was shipped off to a market far far away. It certainly happened here in New Zealand...

The Mystery of the Aussie Leedy Full Dress Drums

I picked up this 1937 Leedy Broadway Dual Full Dress snare from an Australian seller a couple of weeks ago. It was the third one I'd try to buy in the last year, all in Australia. Then I saw Steele's...
