Re: Ludwig B/O Black Panther kit

Hi Wayne,

Re: Future Vintage?

Here is my take...
Kits from 1980's are not sought after for the same reason that (most) people don't collect 1978 Mustang II's ...because they made fugly uninspiring cars during that period of...

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Cymbals

My latest guilty pleasure is a set of Vader Rainbow hi hats. I picked them up for $30 mainly because they were red to match the red Evans heads on my goofy black North kit. The deal made with my...

Re: cool Dixie snare

Thanks Mike. I am starting to get how guys end up with a wall full of snare drums. They can be relatively inexpensive (especially MIJ), and a satisfying restoration project that you can complete in a...

cool Dixie snare

I just completed the clean-up of this super cool Dixie snare. It had mismatched and broken lugs on it, and some old stickers. I transplanted the lugs from a donor snare, and polished it up. I love...

Re: Joseph Rogers Jr. & Son Bass Drum

Thanks so much Gary!
I love seeing those old catalogs...I guess it hasn't depreciated much in 70 years...I paid $50 for it, so that's less than $.25/year. Best thing about it (other than the price)...

Re: Two 18 in floor toms for under $10.

Re: What would make this kit worth $4000???

I don't really care, and I don't want that kit, it just makes me wonder what is in it for him? There has to be some motivation because he has refreshed the ad regularly for several weeks now.Hmmmm
