Re: MIJ No Name Drums

That sure is a mish-mash of parts. American ingenuity strikes again with that tom holder!

I see three different lug types, Ludwig copy (or real), Slingerland copy and the generic "Pearl style"...

Re: Cleaning Red Sparkle Wrap

Hey Jimmy,

Novus and Plastix (made my Meguiar's) are specifically made for plastic material like headlights, boat windshields, plastic bumpers etc.

Either one will work very well. I've used...

Re: Painted Luddy restoration finally done :-)

Fantastic Job! Looks like a brand new set!

I know the painted shells were a giant pain in your rear..........but they probably prevented the wrap from being faded/yellowed and kept them from...

What's with Acrolite (and Blackrolite) prices?

I know these have steadily gone up over the past few years, but some of these prices are out of control.

My local Guitar Center has one for $249, just a standard B/O Badge in good condition.

I...

Best way to clean/polish matte lacquer shells?

Greetings,

I've posted this question on here previously, but I wanted to revisit it again. I just picked up a used matte lacquer Dixon fuse kit that needs some cleaning. What methods do you use...

Re: Bass Drum Mounted Cymbals

I took a look at your drums in a separate thread. Nice kit!

I wouldn't put a heavy cymbal on it. The other downside is that you can't adjust how close or far way from you the cymbal is like you...

Any interest in this? I'll float it for a bit more time here before I go elsewhere.

Thanks.

MIJ Gretsch?

Greetings,

I saw these while browsing Guitar Center's used inventory. I never knew Gretsch had MIJ stuff (other then the R-360/R-380 Series). I know the Blackhawk stuff that was MIT in the 80's,...

Re: Good Deal or Not

It's nice to see a Blue Ripple wrap that hasn't started to turn mint green. So many of this Blue Ripple wraps turn mint green as they age/fade.

Re: Greten Drums in Cysler Pearl

If it stays low, the cymbals might be worth it alone.

Those hi-hats appear to have excellent hand hammering.

Re: 1966/'67 Slingerland Radio King COB Snare-6.5" x 14"-10 Lug Model #142

The catalog pages show the Sound King vs the Radio King. As far as I can tell, the only difference between them was the strainer. Again, the catalog pictures...

1966/'67 Slingerland Radio King COB Snare-6.5" x 14"-10 Lug Model #142

Greetings,

It's in very good shape overall. The only real issue is that a previous owner swapped out the original throw off for a Ludwig P-85, so there are two extra small holes to accommodate...

Re: 12" Splash Cymbal Shootout Comparison Video

It's a unique sounding splash. The previous owner beat the ever living daylights out of it. It's all dented and bent along the edge (no cracks though) which contributes to its unique sound.

Re: 1990s Ludwig scratches

Maybe, just maybe, the "BR" stamp was for a famous drummer with those initials...........can't recall who............maybe it was made for him?

Re: 1990s Ludwig scratches

Looks like the snare cord for Puresound Snare Wires.

I will never understand how some drummers care enough to replace the adequate stock snares with premium, expensive snare wires because of the...

12" Splash Cymbal Shootout Comparison Video

I thought it would be fun to line up all the 12" Splashes I own (12 to be exact-good symmetry). I recorded a video and posted it on my You Tube Channel (the first video I've ever...

Re: 1960 Trans Badge Ludwig Blue Note Questions

Let's give Gunshaker the chance to explain.

Maybe he/she had permission from the school to purchase the drums (or had permission to take the drums). Maybe the school gifted him/her the drums.
