Re: Decisions Decisions

Totality of the circumstances... I'd go with the modern Classic Maple kit out of all of those. I don't usually say that, but with the issues presented on the vintage kits, I think you will get more...

Re: Tko "pro" percussion

That one almost looks like they were trying to go for the DW look. I also noticed the 10 lugs a side bass drum, which for TKO they usually had 8 lugs for a 22"
The TKO's I remember from the early...

Re: Ludwig 1920s Mahogany Super

I would think that price is a little high, for as many issues that it has.. parts missing, painted inside, and being re-wrapped like it is.
I wouldn't have much interest in that particular drum...

Re: Rogers Red Onyx Drums Complete

If you plan to keep these, I'd say a re-wrap is a good idea.. a solid investment.
I know that you sell and trade often, so if you are planning to do that with this kit, I'd leave them like they...

Fantastic snare drum, as I'm sure you know from...

Re: Rogers Fullerton Green Label

There's a Rogers drum group on Facebook you can join, if you're not a member. Several Rogers experts on there and I'd bet they would be able to answer your question.

Re: Dating Zildjian cymbals

I'm still learning this stuff myself..

I believe the middle photo is a late 50's stamp. Looks like a 60s stamp but the 3 dots are missing in the Arabic writing above. The E in Made is aligned...

Re: Evans Calftone heads

I agree with your assessment. But playing today's music with louder volumes, for me coated ambassador or emperors work better. I play more blues, funk, classic country stuff with a few cover bands....

Re: Premier Genista Price Check

Almost looks like a 20" kick drum to me. Are you positive it's a 22?
Those Genista kits are/were either Premier's top of the line, or close to the top of the line kits. They were pretty...
