Re: Apollo drums

Don't do that! This is probably exactly how the set came in the mid-late 60s - without a floor tom. It's all together and looks like it's in good shape. This is a cool find! So if you cant live...

Re: Who made these? Solve mystery Please!

If the tension rods are the standard thread, I would think that would strongly point to being made by Pearl. I think these were made much earlier than anything Hoshino produced.

Re: Restoring/Cleaning of a '79/'83 Tama Imperialstar

Ugh... For some reason I often see cool old Tama snares suffer the steel wool fate. Those rust spots will come off easily with just some metal polish and a cotton cloth. I use a brand called Mr....

Re: MIJ Tension Rods.

It probably depends if your Stewart was made by Star or Pearl.

Re: Mij i.d.

Star. Not sure if Pearl or Hoshino ever did the grey painted interiors. Also, check the rack tom rods and inserts to see if they are the smaller, metric threads.

Re: Orphan reunited with family!

Thanks for the comments!

In case anyone is interested, this set is up on Craigslist, if you're local to Portland, Oregon. Thanks!

Re: Orphan reunited with family!

And just for kicks, a shot with a Pearl snare in a matching wrap. (Which I believe is not gold sparkle at all, but Sparkling Silver Pearl, according to the 1968/69 Pearl catalogs.)

Orphan reunited with family!

Hi everyone! I've been away from the forum for quite a while, but I wanted to share a sorta heartwarming MIJ story.

I'm sure no one remembers that many years ago I scored a 14" MIJ floor tom...

Thanks for all your suggestions! I will try each of them starting with which ever is cheapest and go from there.

Regarding the cost/waste of time aspect, yes, I know that unless I do the whole...

Deeply rusted hoops - any ideas?

Looking for some anti-rust measures for these guys. Soaking in vinegar worked for part of it, but there are places where the rust is caked to badly that the vinegar didn't do anything. I've done a...

Re: How long does it take for Vintage Luan to Cure

I'll bite... Modern drum heads! Ever find an original 60s/70s MIJ head? Seems to me those were never going to stay in tune, no matter what. Put any make or model current production drum head on...

Re: Stewart Gold Sparkle, Rectangular Badge (new member)

I agree with the above post. Definitely a Pearl made drum. Judging by the badge, I would also date it somewhere around the early-mid 70s, though that lug design was used as early as 1968, I think.

Re: Japanese Newspaper Found Under Wrap!

Wow! I've never seen this. This is quite an interesting case, as the Japanese drums, love 'em or hate 'em, were always very consistent.

If I were you, I would leave the newspaper there. If...

Re: MIJ Bass drum tom mount help

I would suggest trying to use a snare stand. You can adjust a snare stand in a way that positions it on the inside of the bass drum spur and gets it right up close to the snare drum. I love the old...

Re: stewart drums

Very interesting! Could you post a pic of the Hoshino Stewart badge? I'd love to see it.

In this related thread, we see that Stewart was a name used by early/mid 60s Pearl, late 60s Star, then...

Re: Zildjian 18 inch vintage

I've never been big on China cymbals, so maybe someone could educate me. Would there be that big of a difference in sound and/or playability between a new China and one from the 70s?
