Re: Welcome back...What happened?

Glad we're back! It did get me thinking that if this forum ever did shut down for good, what an insane amount of great information would just disappear into the ether, and what a tremendous loss that...

Re: Show us your Satin Flame drums

I'm really enjoying this thread. Honestly, I'd never paid much attention to Satin Flame wraps, but the ones I'm seeing here are really cool!

Re: This is the Display Your Rewrapped Vintage Drums Thread

I have nothing to contribute, because I would be hopeless at re-wrapping drums, but still wanted to chime in and say how much I love seeing all these. Thank you all for posting such seriously...

Re: My 1963 Shelly Manne Drum Set

Just incredible. That's probably my favorite BDP pattern. A great looking kit.

Well, maybe he'll be available for the inevitable "re-boot".

Re: Vintage Slingerland in Walgreens Commercial

Oh man, "Back To The Future"...I'm not surprised no one worried about the drums being correct, since they're just in the bg, but that bright red Gibson that Marty McFly borrows, and that is featured...

Re: After 29 years, reacquired my Duplex Spirit of St. Louis set!

These are incredibly cool drums! I've never seen a kit like this before; what's up with the rims? I'm assuming it has something to do with what appears to be lug-less shells?

Re: This is the Display Your Rogers Drums Thread

This is an incredibly cool looking kit! Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but did you reverse the tom mount, or is that how it was designed for this configuration? I've never seen that before.

Re: OBP Downbeat on eBay

I'd definitely buy this one from the same seller ($10,000 more for an extra floor tom is a steal, right?), but that $300 shipping is a deal breaker for me...

Re: This is the Post a Picture of Your Drum Instructor Thread

I'm late to this, but what a great idea for a thread. (And Mark, that's wild that Roy Burns was your teacher!)
My teacher was Eddie Locke, a fantastic drummer and person who played with a ton of...

Re: Blast From The Past: Contemporary Drummer 4-1-1981

Hahaha, I totally fell for it!

But it does seem like there was a time when a lot of that was conventional wisdom.

Re: Rogers swivo mounts: How much is too much?

This is all very informative, thanks! It definitely seems like, due to such great siwvo hardware design, snares, toms, cymbals, etc, mounted on the bass drum wouldn't suffer much more placement...

Rogers swivo mounts: How much is too much?

I've seen (but never heard) Rogers swivo-era kits with a snare, tom and ride cymbal all mounted on the bass drum. I've also seen Rogers bass drums with a tom (or two), a ride and a full size crash...

These are fantastic! It's so cool to see where it all started! I love to picture my drums being made there so many years ago. And to reiterate what many have already said, just incredible to think of...
