Well then I guess this will have to do. I did not need a big ole welcome party, I kinda figured out as I am getting older, the things we used to take for granted in life like the big Christmas, the opening band sucking realy bad, playing shows for free,,,, Man I miss all that now!!! lolol... I am also learning to appreciate instruments for how they play and not how they look, took 30 years to get a hold of that one. My sister has givin me some old Rogers Drums and I am actualy taking my time cleaning them up. I have a post here about them. Well thanks for the big welcome, I dig the sight and have learned a lot. See on or around sometime my friend.

Hello, everyone... and especially Silly Billy, as I as well was searching for the now perished Intro Forum, so I am following your thread to say greetings!... Greetings! Anyway, I'm hittin' fifty soon, and am getting back into my long ago passion. Just finished purchasing a new, modest kit to get my feet wet again... I've been looking at some "extras" online, and I have a few pics to try and get some verification on. Where should I post them so as to get some advice from you cats that are in the groove? Thanks, and hello again! Kevins

Hello everyone, I have been searchinng for the introduction forum myself. Im glad I found this thread. Now I know Im not an idiot. lol
Im Poppy. I have a 68 ludwig kid, I believe is sky blue pearl, but it dont look blue at all. it looks more like it should be called silver grey pearl. I came here to see if y'all can help me figure this out. I need a snare to match this kit. I also have a 60's blue slate pearl Sonor kit. i am looking for a floor tom for this kit. I found one on craigs list in canada. I am trying to get that guy to list it on ebay so I can buy it. I allso have a tama rockstar kit with a pearl rack that i actually use. I hope to meet some new friends in here. Thanks for having me!
Poppy

Talking Re: Where is introduction part of forum?

Well,I guess this thread is the intro page! haha I'm a newbie as well,but I've been a silent member since Sept. I have been playing since I was 6. I'm 40.
My aunt got me a jr kit for xmas as a gag gift on my Mom. She threw it out after a short time,but I was hooked and beat on whatever.lol
I'm now the proud owner of a clear vistalite(since 1982),a Roger cali wine XP8a blue Island Import Rogers,a odd cortex Ludwig quadraplus, and a slew of percussion as well as 10 snares:1 script Dyna,2COB script powertone,several Ludwigs(including a 71 6.5x14supra and a 6 lug sky blue pearl),COB Niles Slingy. I'm glad I'm here! I LOVE VINTAGE DRUMS!!!!!!!!!!
My latest trade and oldest drum is a 1920s Leedy single ply steam bent. It's a real beauty! I plan on coming on here often and hope to make some new friends! Oh,I'm rwdowns on the Rogers Owners Forum as well.

I play in four very different bands and make metal sculpture out of found scrap. My biggest to date is a 16 foot outdoor that I donated to my hometown's city park!
Peace!

I shall use this page to introduce myself to the forum as well. As a Vistalite owner and player and recently acquiring a 60's Ludwig WMP Downbeat kit (Complete 4 piece with Speed King Hi Hat, an amazing $200 score!) I thought I'd join to share and get some recommendations on keeping my Lud's in tip-top shape.

The 'new' kit in process of cleaning:
