Re: Pearl Spin Tight Tension Rods with Acrolite/Black Beauty

I think it's an interesting idea. I would imagine you just use these at the points where you're really pounding the snare drum? But, for the price... $75.60 for 4 rods and the special key at...

Re: Dating Rogers

Not counting the paper-tag Dynasonics, I believe the first serial number on the badge was 1001, but don't quote me on that! I need to look in my Rogers Book and check it out.

Re: Ludwig Acrolite drum set and Slingerland copied them

Not to derail this post, but just to add to what thin shell says about the triple-flange hoops. While it's true that Slingerland bent their hoop inward at the top flange, also keep in mind that...

Re: Rogers Drums

$800 is definitely a bargain for this Covington-built set! The addition of the Knobby would not deter me at all!

David! After all these years, I'm embarrassed to say that I've not seen that article! It will help many to understand about why there are dozens, if not hundreds, of different names associated with...

Re: Help Identify Ludwig Super Sensitive?

$10?!! Definitely a good deal! For that small amount of cash, you got a drum that I would certainly display and enjoy. My drum did not have that extra snare mechanism under the head. That's got to be...

Re: Help Identify Ludwig Super Sensitive?

Hello spenlars!

The drum in question is a Super Sensitive knockoff...and a poor one at that! I had this same drum. The snare mechanism, in all honesty, is a joke and don't expect it to work...

Re: What are the tonal differences between Ludwig & Rogers?

Yes, it's a wood-shell Dynasonic! I wonder if it comes with the kit, though. If it does, then that's the set to buy!

First, Welcome to our forum! Next, the above two responses are right on! I've owned both Ludwig and Rogers sets from both periods and have loved them all. I will say that Rogers drums from the 60's...

Re: And It's Another Know Nothing Ebay Seller

Hi DrumBob!

I saw this set some time ago and, again, just had to chuckle! It always seems to come down to the fact that they believe that "old" or "vintage" equals $$$. The set will flounder for a...

Re: who made this MIJ stencil kit any ideas Help

Hey John!

A really great looking MIJ set! The tom holder suggests Hoshino, but Star is also possible. My early 60's Crown set uses the same tom holder and I believe my Crown is Hoshino built. I'm...
