Re: Camco Restoration - a labor of love.

Walter - They're your drums brother and you can do anything you want with them. I always try to think in terms of preservation first. In terms of preservation just fill the extra holes, clean them up...

That one has me by the ya-ya's too. The badge looks like it hasn't been tampered with. I'm convinced they are W&A drums...

Re: Camco Restoration - a labor of love.

By adding back the Rogers parts you -increased- the resale value of the kit by more than what you paid for the parts.

Re: (my new) WFL Questions

Now that I've seen all these photos it looks more and more like W&A! The re-rings are identical to the ones in my W&A kit. W&A was using Jasper shells that it acquired from Gretsch at the time. They...

Re: Walberg & Auge?

Andy - W&A!!!

I was beating my head trying to figure out what those drums (the WFL/Gretsch mongrels,) could be and W&A is a perfect fit! W&A used the same 3-ply Jasper shells that Gretsch used....

Re: Ludwig Reintroduces Mod Orange

Hoppy - Ludwig had to eat a lot of those back then (they ended up covering them in black just to sell them,) and I have a feeling they're about to eat another bunch of them. Isn't the definition of...

Re: (my new) WFL Questions

Wow! What a mish-mosh. It looks like a mongrel Gretsch/WFL kit. The silver innards with no re-rings is Gretsch and everything else looks to be straight up WFL. (Lugs, hardware etc.) I have no clue...

Re: Vintage Drum Values and Current Market

You don't need us to answer that question. You know what you paid for your gear. Go to ebay, perform a search for your particular kits and select 'sold items'. You'll get a good estimate/idea of...

Re: Ludwig Reintroduces Mod Orange

I actually prefer the new version! Looks more like an exotic wood than a random psychedelic pattern from the 60's. Eye of the beholder I guess.

Is Ludwig expecting a resurgence of Doors cover...

Re: 1959 George Way (Re-wrap)

Boomph!

These Way kits are rarer than hens teeth. Thought this one would have been long gone by now. I'm genuinely surprised.

Grab em while you can. They're looking for a good home.

Re: FS: Sonor Perfect Balance Pedal By Jojo Mayer

Re: Camco Restoration - a labor of love.

Go with the Rogers... for some reason I cannot explain an awful lot of Camco kits ended up with Rogers hardware on them. The kit will fit in with its peers if you restore the Rogers mounts.

Re: Cannon Drum Throne Seats?

The Rod-man has it right yet again. Cannon = Low-end Asian stuff. They do have one or two high-end items in their catalog, but it's all imported gear.

Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

A kit like that calls for a deep-dish 6.5 x 14 Supra ala John Bonham just so the snare can keep up with the rest of the kit volume-wise. Steel drums are dry and LOUD. You don't want the sound to die...

Re: FS: Sonor Perfect Balance Pedal By Jojo Mayer

Pale - I've been hemming and hawing over this one because I've heard that the heel plate on those pedals are loose and noisy (clacky) when you play it. Is that true? I'm a heel/toe player so it's...

Re: Camco Oaklawn Badges

At $70 to $90 bucks a badge you might have to take out a second mortgage!

grantro is correct... they are very expensive. They do come up on Fleabay fairly regularly though. Keep your eyes open....

Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

You're going to need an Uber car to get from one side of the kit to the other! :D

That thing is awesome! It's a steel monster big enough to kick a$$ on a Transformer! They must sound thunderous....

Thanks for the support boys... you guys are the best. Bar none.

Did I mention that it's a George Way kit? These are the Granddaddy to Camco and DW. :D

Re: Any ideas?

The larger of the three holes was probably to accommodate the cord of a bulb/heating element for the original calf heads. If you look inside the bulb and base may still be there.
