Vintage bass drum sizes

When was the first time you saw a vintage bass drum in a deeper than traditional size? There seems to have been a long period in drum making where a 12" or 14" depth was very common. I know about the...

Re: Rogers Powertone Snare Wires?

I also like the Puresound 16 strand on Powertones. I use plastic on the butt end too. It seems to help the wires sit better.

Tower or Powertone Rogers snare drum

Hi all. A friend is looking for a Powertone or Tower to wrap for a kit. I don't really like seeing perfectly good Rogers being stripped but anyway, if you have something please let me know. Thanks.

Re: Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl kit

Andrew is spot-on - Ludwig vintage drums are quite rare and fairly expensive here. As I said - all the wrap is shot. I wanted to strip the kit to a nice players kit and because it's complete, keep it...

Re: Help with crack in a Rogers 14" floor

I'm with Ploughman. I'd say that crack - or actually a separation of a single ply - has been there for a long time. As to the effect on the value: if you paid $700 and the rest of the drum is nice -...

Re: Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl kit

Andrew; not dismissing your knowledge at all. This is how I learn stuff. So - if this kit has re-rings and a Granitone interior - it's 3 ply? Would that be a safe bet? Also on the value of the kit -...

Re: Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl kit

What makes you certain of this? No one else seems to know. I do know one thing. $1000 is generous for this drum kit.

Re: Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl kit

The snare drum is worth $350. The cymbals are 70s Zildjians worth about $350. The wrap cannot be saved. The whole kit is rusty. The drums are Granitone 6 ply. All of the heads need replacing. I don't...

Re: Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl kit

I later offered $1000 out of respect for the hardware and cymbals. Figured that outer ply would look pretty nice with some waxing and they probably sound ok. I was rebuffed! there were no harsh words...

Re: Sydney drum show 2016

Floral gags aside; Steele will have a pile of vintage parts for sale on the day so a good chance to get a vital missing piece.

Re: Rogers Price Check

Problem with any vintage kit is - unless you do play it, you can't tell if it sounds great or not. Ploughman was giving solid advice. If you buy a kit like this and it has a dead drum, it's worth...

Re: Rogers lugs

I don't mind at all. It's not a restoration; I just need functioning lugs. They don't have to be pristine or anything like it. Thanks.
