Re: Vintage Ludwig Stand Rivets

I have no experience in this, but I would take it to a good machine shop and get their advice.

Re: What did I just buy?!!! MIJ or Ludwig?!!

Sure looks promising, Mark!
Not enough pictures but it looks as though the air vent has been wrapped over. I can see it from the inside shot, but it doesn't show on shell just left of the MIJ throw....

Re: Can anyone help identify this drum?

I'm leaning toward an early 20's or earlier Leedy or Duplex model.
The 12 claw hooks looks very early as they have no flattened "lip" on either side to prevent gouging the wood hoop.
Obviously...

My guess is that is from some sort of a Broadway show pit set-up.

Re: Musician Prank

I used to be an Orchestra Personnel Manager twenty years ago. On an odd night off, I would be working late at the office and I had a Boom-box on my desk near the phone.

Re: Camco Repro Badges for sale!!

I just heard back from the good folks at the Drum Center of Portsmouth.

Is the Repro-Badge the original size? Baked enamel...

Re: Interesting Video

The resonance and sustain of the Camco is so pure and warm. It's almost as if the entire shell is sympathetically vibrating with the heads.
I wonder what Steve thought after heard the playback?

Re: Camco

I agree with DRUM69's analysis.

Tension rods also seem to be only on the reso head and they look like ludwigs.

Re: 1967 Ludwig Super Sensitive Restoration

Beautiful. Just beautiful. That was a lot of work, but the result is a drum that will continue to play for years to come.

Re: Showing off my freshly detailed Powertone

Very cool, Mark!!
My set is 20-16-12, but my BD has no mount for a ride.
I believe it is a "Citadel" model. It took me awhile to gather all the period correct stands, but now it is complete and is...

Re: Showing off my freshly detailed Powertone

I never knew that about the flat Tower vs gloss Powertone grey paint. Very interesting!

Showing off my freshly detailed Powertone

All Original with no fade or rust. Every piece was hand polished, screws were cleaned and oiled and the shell was given a coat of carnauba wax. I think it was made around 1966. Still have a floor...

Purdie,

Are all of them the Oaklawn early version with the solid base.....or do they have the two trenches/channels on either side?

Re: The True Go kit

I'm guessing that the advent of "Car Culture" in the USA basically made folding drums a non-starter, although I know that a few companies (Duplex ?) made them for a while.
I love the niche that...

Re: UK 70's Aluminium Snare

Sounds as if your drum is torqued, somewhat. usually due to being dropped or subjected to unusual pressure. I would try a head like Remo's "Classic Fit" which features a narrower flesh hoop for older...

Re: Rogers Supreme Hi Hat Restoration

I would say that a good deal of "Elbow Grease" was liberally applied on this job.

Re: Piccolo Snare
