Thanks very much for the reply. No luck with either source. I did find a Drouyn tom on Gumtree if anybody's interested.

I really appreciate the links nonetheless. I'll check them from time-to-time.

Take care.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take care.

Almost, but not quite. I have a DANDY snare (same poeple as Drouyn, and pretty much the same as far as I can tell), circa 1950, can't remember the depth offhand but I'm thing at least 5.5. It's a heavy drum! Certainly not perfect, but the issues in terms of playability are minor. I'm not using it much and have being thinking of selling but haven't got my head around it yet (not a sales ploy just too much going on at the moment). Shoot me a PM (or better still an email to stu_china at Yahoodotcomdot au if you want details etc and while I can't promise a sale, I'll at least keep you in mind if the fog clears.
As an alternative their a Drouyn facebook page (just search Drouyn drums) that has a few people active (may take a while to get a reply.. but at least they are all into Drouyn).
I see metal Drouyns come up on Aust ebay fairly regularly and the drumpalace in Victoria has had them in the past

Hello folks, any suggestions on shipping a drum kit to Australia from the USA? Someone has asked for a quote on a 22, 13, 16 kit, and looks like USPS is $400+. Thanks!

So some answers; I don't have one, one for sale at the moment on Ebay, not in the configuaration you want though, it's one up and one down. I suspect that it would be very rare.
Re the Easybeat kit.. I vaguely remember another forum member ("Antipodes I think) mention he was in a recording studio in Sydney and the Easybeats bass drum was there.. not much help but maybe a small clue.
Lastly, Drouyn are no longer operating and have been closed for a long time.

Hi All,

Just found this forum, good to see so many Aussie drummers!
I have a 26x12 Dandy bass drum (early 60's I think) - also have various other bits of the kit (including snare) that are still in "storage" at the ex's house - hopefully I can get them all back...
I'm looking for any Dandy branded drums (not the later Drouyn branded stuff) so I can form a complete kit if possible. In particular looking for rack & floor toms, hardware and maybe another snare.
Any info on these drums would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Paul

I have the much worn original drum kit of Jerry Speiser "Men at Work" in my workshop. Its the actual kit that most of the recordings were played on.
Its here in the pipe line for some preservation work along with the road cases. The idea is to admire the extent of how many have heard the sound of this kit....its tired but we can make it look as good as it can....

Just pointing out this Camco in Sydney....and, yes, it's mine. Given Australia's fairly specific circumstances and lack of much vintage, I figured it's Ok to stick it in this thread.

Re: Australian Collectors Group
 
hey guys,

I just purchased a premier 54 outfit here in Melbourne with royal ace snare. I was piecing together my very own vintage premier kit, so now I have a 22x14 kick 50's nearly complete, but in pieces. the 12r is missing the bottoem diecast hoop. 16f is complete and both have been re-wrapped (not by me). I also have a 60's era hi hat, snare stand and pedal. all shells are birch with beech re-rings. if anyone is interested pm me here or email me boony1977@yahoo.com
I may also sell the royal ace or my restored Superace, just not sure yet...just need to compare them both together and see what one I like.

I will have the rack and floor in the next 2 weeks. they are coming across from Adelaide with a mate.

Antipodes 12-03-2013 05:16 PM

Re: Australian Collectors Group
 
And I'll mention a (non-drummer) mate of mine has just acquired a Premier bass drum and floor tom just like Boora's 54 outfit but missing the 12" x 8" rack.

The kit is BDP so if anyone sees a stray, let me know. Get an orphan to re-wrap is not on the cards....yet.

Boora 12-04-2013 09:03 AM

Re: Australian Collectors Group
 
Got the kit tonight and what a buy. Its a beauty and its perfect, with no work needed on it. The guy I got the kit from. Has a brass supra 14x5 and its listed for $830 or nearest offer. He won't post, but if anyone wants it, I can grab ut and post it for you. Its a beautiful snare and if he still has it in the new year, I will grab it.

English Drums?
 
Hi guys,

Might any of you be interested in some vintage English drums that would have been sold in Oz/NZ back in the day? These are very rare drums for the most part, very rare in the UK and impossible to find just about anywhere else. I've got '20s, '30s, Premiers, and a one-of-a-kind Ajax solid shell from the '30s. All are in immaculate shape, have new heads and are ready to play. I'm giving you guys first crack at them, as it seems fitting they should end up in a place where you could've actually bought one back then. PM me if you think you might be interested.

Cheers.

Antipodes 01-06-2014 04:40 PM

Re: Australian Collectors Group
 
I think you'll find shipping would be an issue (certainly for Australia). Australia Post won't allow anything much above the size of a 14" floor tom these days.

relayer 01-06-2014 06:14 PM

Re: Australian Collectors Group
 
Thank you, sir. I should've mentioned, these are all snare drums so shipping (except for the price) shouldn't be a problem.

I am a big Ludwig fan, and have collected a few from different era's, much to my partners disgust :-)

A longshot for the Oz readers. I'm after a long Rogers Swivomatic tom arm and also 75 degree collet plate only (as in plate only, not the wing). Anyone got spares let me know.

Not too sure what a 75 degree plate is? Bass drum?

Antipodes 02-22-2014 08:01 AM

Re: Australian Collectors Group
 
Rogers did three sorts of collet plates for different tom and leg uses - depending on number of toms and size of bass drum, for example, they did 90, 75 and 60 degree plates (these also doubled for bass drum leg holders, etc.

There's a thread I started about this on the main forum and someone did a nice diagram but essentially the angle makes up for the curve of the drum, ensuring the Swivo post goes straight up (if that's what you want). It all seems to have been a bit after one's own wishes.

For my two bass drums (18" and 20") I've figured I need 60 and 75 degree plates respectively. The challenge is most people don't carry a set square around so they kinda guessing if it's a 60 or 75 (though one of our guys in here from Belgium just so sold me a 60....and he did have a set square to check the angle...and he photographed it - this is why Europeans kick butt).

So if you've got one that's a bit less than a right angle, it's probably a 75. I'm still after one - they were pretty common. It's just a relief dealing with a drum brand when a specific spare might come up more than once every two years and for which I don't have to hostage my family to pay for it - as is the case with Camco.

Drum Palace had nothing and Jollity Farm offered - how do I say this nicely - significantly above market prices.

Am now sorted on the tom arm, which was the difficult one.

I often See "Dawn" detergent recommended here for cleaning up Chrome.. Until now I had not found it sold in OZ. Whilst cleaning out a kitchen cupboard I found a mailbox sample of Dawn (vintage not known).. I contacted the supplier and found that Dawn is now marketed in OZ as " Fairy " both in liquid and tablet form. The supplier tells me it is exactly the same formula...

"Fairy" branded products are available from Coles supermarkets...

Cheers

Bring a plain brown paper bag with you so that no other men see you leaving the store with something named, Fairy!

LOL

Dawn does work! Been using it for years. Soak parts overnight and rust is gonzo. Doesn't harm the chrome or metal.

Do you believe in Fairies?

Kerrie Biddell
 
Australian musicians are mourning the unexpected loss of jazz great Kerrie Biddell last week. Kerrie was an vocalist and teacher, most recently at The NSW Conservatorium of Music in Sydney. She was an incredible singer, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of jazz and other forms of contemporary music. Kerrie could sight sing, read any chart and hear a wrong note or chord instantly. She was funny, witty, humble and just as comfortable discussing Art Blakey as Billie Holiday. Every time she was around, music and musicians became that much more exciting and important. Although we didnít share a stage many times (her bands were jazz ensembles of frightening capability) I had the pleasure of recording her and the intonation and purity of her voice was astounding. We taught together for quite a few years and the way she taught singing was really inspiring. I feel very fortunate to have seen her at two of my gigs last month, where she turned up with charts and CDís of hard to get vinyl as gifts for the whole band. This kind of thing was not unusual, but since she suffered very badly from rheumatoid arthritis her entire life and had difficulty getting around it was even more special. Kerrie was much loved and and will be sorely missed. kerrie had not performed much in recent times but this clip something of what she could bring to a song. Taken from a popular daytime TV show in the 1980ís, it also features Julian Lee on piano, an incredible musician who arranged the song. Vale Kerrie Biddell.
