Re: Early Pacific Drum set questions

Hi teverson!

I found those lugs intriguing, so I looked through my PDP catalogs and actually found your set! It shows in my 2001 catalog as the "EX", which was the entry-level offering. The text...

Re: Rogers Big R...alive and well at Disneyland!

Hey Dan!

Yes, we had a great time due to the relatively low crowds! I did notice the 8x12 tom, which had a HUGE sound! All the drums were tuned lower for that 80's sound. No power-toms required!!...

Re: Rogers Big R...alive and well at Disneyland!

grantro! Unfortunately, I did not talk to the drummer. When he saw me off to the side taking pictures, you can see that he happily obliged by looking my way and smiling! I gave him a big "thumbs up"!...

Re: garage sale Rpgers Dynasonic help please

The rail and wires you want are those offered by the "new" Rogers USA company. It's part number 4723 and can be found for around $60. Here's one on Reverb......

Rogers Big R...alive and well at Disneyland!

Hi all!

My girlfriend and I went to Disneyland last Tuesday, November 9. The crowds weren't bad for a change! We took a break and walked over to Downtown Disney for some shopping. I heard a band...

Re: Vintage 1971 Rogers Timbale Twins Drum Set.

Found a catalog picture scan from VDF...and it's in the same color. Very cool! This will let everyone know what it looks like...even without the rare 14x14!

Re: This One Might Draw Some Interest

Hi Dan!

Honestly, no one seems to know what is happening with Jim's website and inventory. Jim never really updated his website to reflect that most of what was shown was never really in stock. As...

Tommyp!

I've been aware of Jim's passing for some time now, and, like you, Jim and I had a great relationship! While a bit off-topic to this thread, I'm quite surprised that there is no mention...

Re: Ludwig P-88 Throw

Brian!

Thanks for trusting me!! The P88 replaced the P85AC, which had a very narrow thumb-wheel that was tough to turn and would bind up when in the "on" position. I believe that Josh, of Inde...

Re: Vintage as Vintage Can Be

A beautiful kit for sure! In regards to the air vents, the toms didn't come with them until around 1966. A previous owner was just compelled to add vents to these toms. While the air vents chosen...

Re: Ludwig P-88 Throw

Here's the P88 on my custom NOB snare drum. I took the hardware from a "Blackrolite" and installed it on a Worldmax "Black Dawg" shell. I wanted to try the P88/P35 instead of the P85/P32.

Re: Ludwig P-88 Throw

Brian!

The P88 is a great throw-off! I've got it on 3 of my snare drums, including my 2012 "Brass Edition" snare drum. The P88 comes with the P35, too.

Re: ID and dating help please

Hi Krisdrum...and Welcome to the forum!

Your kit is, indeed, a Fullerton-era outfit. The 9/72 tags did begin in 9-72, but the labels will narrow down the years even more. I'm not at home right now...

Hi J!m!!

I've been dealing with Slingerland drums for decades now and have found that the placement of tone controls on dual-tom sets can be a crap shoot! I've seen many where the factory worker...

Re: 1965 Modern Solo Restoration Update

Thanks for the advice with Minwax Wood Filler. I'll keep that in mind if I ever have to do this again! I've already sanded and drilled for lugs. Came out great! Haven't taken pictures yet....

Here's the small tub of "Plastic Wood" I'm using to plug the holes. It goes on pink and then will change to tan when completely dry. It dried very quickly and I already sanded last night. Will post...

Re: Help indenitifing slingerland snare

Hi! The serial number of 477416 dates your drum to around 1979-80. As I mentioned previously, it is the TDR COB model 193, which is the 6.5x14 version. No longer considered the Buddy Rich snare drum,...

Re: Help indenitifing slingerland snare

Hi Matematika!

I can tell you this is a TDR snare drum, model number 193. Depending on the year, which we need the serial number, it could be the Buddy Rich COB TDR. Regardless of the year, it...
