Re: North/Fibes snare drum?

Looks like we got this one tracked down on FB Bryan. These are kinda unique, as there don't appear to be many out there! I have no doubt they play/sound exactly as a Fibes SFT6909/COF, as that is...

Re: Anyone notice there's no "https:" + "Not Secure" (when typing message/response) ?

Mark!

YES!, exactly! Zenstat said pretty much the same as you and I as well. Does NOT appear to be an issue as the VDF was never set up for it ... and for the very reasons mentioned. I’ve been...

Indeed! I'll get in touch with "our guy"... and see what's what with that! Course I don't think many of us, if any, enter any sensitive information, ie: Passwords, credit card numbers, etc. Still,...

Re: One Down One to Go

The 14X14 looks GREAT Mark! .. and .. I meant to reply to your other question about the 8X12 and being able to lighten it a little: I would be a bit wary of the lacquer thinner method as you do need...

Re: Rogers Swivomatic Pedal-1st Generation Screw

Mark!

I have a small collection of Swivo's, and do indeed have ONE that has screw #77! The other six of them do not. The one I have with the screw is my earliest model .. early 60's .. so yes, I...

Re: Snares For A WFL Buddy Rich Be Bop

Butchie!

No good, sorry. I have a couple early WFL sets of wires in the stash, but not the 12/12 for this particular drum. Course they do exist for purchase from some aftermarket company's though,...

Re: Cleaning white marine pearl wrap

It would indeed get rid of that "fade" in the BDP! Does the same with WMP of course .. but .. I hear ya! ... as I also experimented on a "throw away" shell with some awful WMP on it. That is...

Re: Snares For A WFL Buddy Rich Be Bop

... it is, and they are! :) I have a 1949/50 WFL/Ludwig 3X13 Buddy Rich Be-Bop, and it's the snare drum that starts my BR snare drum collection, covering from 1950 to 1982. That said, I'll check my...

Re: Pearl 5x14 B4514 COB 70's Snare (Stewart Copeland's Snare)

Regarding the CAST batter hoop on SC's PEARL B4514 ... I gently disagree with funkypoodle, as the PEARL "Superhoop" wasn't even available back during this time period .. and .. SC was NOT a PEARL...

I have the EXACT model you seek, and in near MINT condition as I was/am a HUGE Stewart Copeland fan! I saw The Police LIVE three times back in 1981/1983 during both the "Ghost In The...

Re: Rogers Swivomatic Pedal Adjustment Questions

They do indeed! BOTH look quite promising! Thing for me though, my Swivo's are flawless, thus I don't really "need" a NEW pedal. Still ... GREAT to see this design being tweaked and brought into the...

Re: Rogers Swivomatic Pedal Adjustment Questions

Hey Ken!

It wasn't me mentioning the other retaining nut, it was 8upwithit. He uses that fix to keep the spring from loosening ... mine never have. I just posted as you did here, so I mention that...

Re: Rogers Swivomatic Pedal Adjustment Questions

Very cool little fix for your loosening wingnut/tension retainer! I will say that fortunately, I have never had that issue with any of mine! On my two "working/gigging" Swivo's, the wingnuts have wax...

Most certainly! .. meaning .. you can get another set of fresh bearings that will fit, I would think! As to the 21 vs. 17 count on the bearings, I'm not sure? But ... perhaps there are sets of...

Re: Rogers Swivomatic Pedal Adjustment Questions

You can see that I was pretty spot on about the stroke adjustment! :) Regarding the year of your pedal: You do NOT have a 1972 Swivo-Matic, as actually, your pedal isn't the same as the one...
