Re: Viking Drums

From another post here on the forum....

Re: Radio King calf skin on unknown snare

I was thinking Slingerland, just because of the Radio King Skin, but I couldn't find any Slingerland snare with hardware like this. Closest thing I've found so far is this Lyon & Healy with very...

Anyone know anything about this ancient artifact? I couldn't find a name or badge other than what's printed on the calf skin.

Re: English drums by Rose Morris

Re: Where are you most comfortable as a drummer?
