Re: WTB: Vintage Premier wing nut for cymbal mount.

I think I have one, it's a weird bolt with threads only at the end. Do you know the thread pitch?

Re: Gretsch tension rods=Camcos??

50s Kent rods and late 50s-60s Slingerland rods are also nearly identical to those. I have noticed differences in plating quality, but otherwise they're all pretty indistinguishable across four US...

Re: Going Out Of Business Sale!!!

John, sorry to hear about these troubles, that's a raw deal. Your prices for these drums are more than fair, and I'm super relieved to see that the Big Blue kit didn't actually sell for $2k on eBay!...

Re: Camco Oaklawn Badges

I have a very good reproduction, photo attached. A guy in the UK made it apparently, though I'm not sure he's still at it.

Re: Ludwig cymbal arm in nickel, early-mid '60's

The arm should be the same whether shell or hoop mounted, yes? Only the bracket would differ.

Do you have a photo of what you need? I have some nickel arms, one might be correct.

Re: Another Zickos Supersonic has Surfaced. Some questions now...

For sure, the tension rods are a monster thread and diameter. Somehow despite all the weird mods on my kit, every single part was there and correct, except for the tom arms.

Re: How rare is this bird?

Wow, what a shame about that missing chunk of wrap. No chance you'll ever find a spare piece of that stuff. Gorgeous drums though, I'll be watching this one.

Thanks! I play drums in a forró band. Forró is a type of northern Brazilian party and dancing music, normally played on a triangle and zabumba drum (think marching surdo) by separate percussionists....

Re: RB 3-Ply 18" BD

I just met a fellow with a similar bop kit, though it was rewrapped and had some holes plugged badly. I had never seen a Round Badge 14x18 with rerings, that threw me and I assumed it was a special...

Re: Mystery Turkish(?) Arabic Stamp - Not an Old K Con

I love this stuff. I find myself wondering whose job it was in Italy to come up with shapes that looked like Arabic lettering.

What if it was someone's job in a non-Roman-alphabet-using state to...

Re: Is this a gretsch snare ?

Star-Hoshino. Probably a 12 or 13 rack tom. Nothing Gretsch or snare-like about it.

Re: Mystery Turkish(?) Arabic Stamp - Not an Old K Con

Hmm, I don't see that comparison no matter how I orient my photo. Maybe it's a different knockoff. I really don't think it could be a real K Con.

Mystery Turkish(?) Arabic Stamp - Not an Old K Con

I acquired a raw 70's 16x18 concert floor tom shell a month ago. It has both bearing edges but is only drilled for the top lugs. A previous owner mounted spurs on it, so it has 8 extra holes for...
