Labor Day is a real holiday.

Labor Day may be the least glamorous and most misunderstood of all the holidays, but hey...it's a day off work. In some ways it is my favorite holiday because there are no gifts to buy, and no...

Re: Beginner kit score

A million apologies my friend! You know I'll slide into any thread where there is some action.

Back to your Supra score...it looks like the shell is pretty free of pitting and flaking which is a...

Re: Beginner kit score

Here are some pics of my Star acrylic kit. I told Ralf I'd take some better glam pics for his Star website...soon Ralf, I promise!

Re: Beginner kit score

Great eye! It's not uncommon to see drums listed using the brand name on the heads. Whenever I see one listed as Remo or Evans I always take a closer look.

One of my best finds was an ad like...

Re: Oof, someone hit the lotto today...

I feel you Dan. Every time I get to the end of a restoration project I vow it will be the last...but somehow projects keep finding me. Drum trolls must zap me with that Men In Black "Neuralizer" mind...

Re: Oof, someone hit the lotto today...

Awesome! It's good to know that deals like that are still out there. I'd still rather be Mark Clark though. He is the Michigan man that won $4 million on a scratch off TWICE in three years!

Re: It's a Holiday holiday...update

I know it has been said on here before, but it always makes me laugh to think of the enormous piles of reso side hardware out there somewhere in the landfills of America.

Re: Rogers 2

leedybdp, Your house downsizing is akin to having gastric bypass surgery for drum addiction. Genius!

Re: Rogers 2

The first step is admitting you have a problem.

The next step is hiding that problem.

Re: Alternate Wrap Material

Along the same lines as the Spandex, I've often thought that some sort of shrink wrap would be cool. The perfect product would come in tube form, sized to fit over the shell easily, and then shrink...

Re: It's a Holiday holiday...update

Thanks for the input Myk. I agree that the Ludwig tom is a pretty close match. I have considered finding a BDP Ludwig floor tom which should be a few hundred cheaper than a Rogers and leaving the...

It's a Holiday holiday...update

I thought I'd share some updated pics of the BDP kit I am working on. So far, no extraordinary measures have been needed. I was able to get this far without removing lugs, just carefully masking off...

Re: Rogers 2

When I was a teenager (and played guitar exclusively) there was a middle-aged dude that would hang out waaaay to much at the local music store. For a long time we all thought he worked there. His...

Re: Nurture or Nature

Great pics and stories. I am jealous of you early adopters.

Re: Rogers fans rejoice! It's a Holiday holiday!

Thanks again for the comments and related stories everyone.

I finished cleaning up the Powertone and it looks pretty amazing I think. I was able to bring it back with very little effort. High...

Re: Who made Tiger Pearl MIJ drums?

Love that wrap! Classy and cool.
Because it's such a linear design, I wonder if it suffers from the same structural weakness as agate/onyx type wraps that tend to split along the design direction?

Re: Rogers fans rejoice! It's a Holiday holiday!

Thanks for chiming in guys!

After a little searching it looks like a proper restoration on this kit would necessarily be a "slow burn" project. A few of the bits are not to be found at all on...

Super cool kit Johnny! Best lugs ever...but should be re-nicknamed “lawn dart lugs” IMHO.

The bass head is one I found quite by accident on Reverb. At the time I didn’t have a 22 kick to put it on, but I’m a physics teacher so it was calling to me. The head is black and...

Re: Lido Supreme...just a Lido with sour cream?

As a teacher this pandemic has the silver lining of giving me time at home to complete some projects that have been on the side-burner.
