Re: Advice on Slingerland COB

'm pretty familiar with the Zoomatic. This one is in good condition. The guy told me that the snare has been there 'for quite a while,' and that an offer would be considered...
It would...

Advice on Slingerland COB

At my friendly local GC. It has a Zoomatic, and a snare extension that I don't recognize, so I don't know the model. Eight lug.
It isn't pretty, but it's all there. It has a goat skin batter head,...

DEAL MADE -WFL Speed King and Hi Hat -Correct and refurbished

I just listed WFL gear on ebay. I'm hoping that someone from this forum who collects WFL drums and gear will scoop this up. I may be wrong, but in my experience it's rare to find a WFL Speed King...

Re: Slingerland snare drum ID

I think it might be three ply, too. But it's hard to tell. I'll try to post a clearer picture.
Thanks!

Re: Slingerland snare drum ID

I could post another picture, but I think your answer is correct.
It sounds pretty good to my unsophisticated ear. A basic utility snare, nothing fancy, nothing awful. It tunes well, but in a...

Re: Gretsch Pratt bass muffler - installation??

To wrap this up, I installed a new Pratt muffler on the 18 Yamaha. It took some creativity in order to keep the bottom attachment of the felt strip fully away from the head -- I really like to have...

Re: 1961/62 Slingerland Modern Jazz in Capri Pearl

FLASHBACK! My first kit. I must have been 13 or so. What I recall most was the PITA tom mount. I just couldn't get it. When I was 18, I traded it for a motorcycle.
I must have been on drugs. ...

Re: Upper hi hat tube

Hi Mark -- If I could find the Rogers - and afford it -- I'd go for it.
But I plan to sell this when it's done, and it looks they aren't fetching much $$.
So, yes, just a tube would do the trick!

Upper hi hat tube

I'm restoring a Rogers swan leg hi hat. I have everything except for the upper tube.

Re: Gretsch Pratt bass muffler - installation??

I checked out the DFO thread -- yes it's very helpful! All kinds of measurements.
But after I posted asking if anyone might still have the diagram, a drummer responded that he'd installed one on his...

Re: Recognise this Ludwig SNARE, please..?

:2Cents: I'm a too-impulsive buyer, and it +1. There are many, many Acros available. And, if you're not worried about cosmetics, they can be found at a good price.

Re: Clean bass drum beaters?

Of all the wacky things, I tossed them into the washing matching. That was more successful than anything else I've tried.

Re: Evans Calftone heads

Alan & Mark -- I opted for the UV1 heads. It really did tune easily, and seemed to have a wide range of resonance.
On an 80's Slingerland COW shell, it's crisp and warm.
Score!

Re: Rogers Swivomatic pedal expert help?

The general information is helpful. It may explain the whole thing, really. The stamped numbers may represent a line or station in the process, too.

Re: Gretsch Pratt bass muffler - installation??

It looks like the bottom attachment is riht against the head. Makes sense, The top then should be close to fully raised. Allow an extra 1/8th or so. I'm feelin' lucky.
