Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller

Re: Another Delusional Ebay Seller

Here's a tip that I have found to be very successful. In my opinion, the asking price should include the shipping to the buyer's address. I always took an average shipping price to places in the...

Re: Vintage Drum Market

The vintage (and used) guitar market is a world unto itself. Over the past twenty to thirty years a few hundred people in the U.S. and a lesser number of European and Asian people go to guitar shows...

Re: drums sets in Elvis, the movie

The few glimpses of the drums in the new Elvis movie show the same pattern on the unshaved bass drum as on Fontana's Gretsch drum set that he bought from Herb Brockstein in Houston.

Roland is buying all outstanding shares of DW

This really is not vintage drum news...YET! If Roland is, indeed, gaining a controlling interest in DW, there will be future pre-Roland DW drums and Roland era DW drums

Re: Estate planning

That's what I'd like to do except for the fact that the guy who owns the shop is just a few years younger than me and just as likely to croak as me. Also, he'd sell the store in a heartbeat for the...

Re: Mike Layton killed in motorcycle accident

Mike and I communicated several times on drum forums. We had different drum brand preferences. But we both appreciated the other guy's love of vintage American-made drums. From all accounts of people...

Re: Gretsch, what do you think Iíve got here?

Once again, I don't think you can go wrong with a high-gloss piano black applied by a spray paint professional at an auto painting shop. A guitar painter would probably charge you more. Maybe a...

Re: Gretsch, what do you think Iíve got here?

Re: Premier Drums

Premier made a monumental marketing blunder several years ago. They earmarked most of their USA distribution for the Guitar Center chain because they were promised the moon for doing it. Their loyal...

Re: How about a swap?

My eyesight and my photography aren't that great. But I think I can make out the three dots in the logo. I have the 15" hi hats that I bought new in the late 1950s and a pair of 14" hi hats that I...

Re: Drum Brand Preferences

Romulus, I think that you are full of crap. Your foolish assumptions might be more correct after all of us drummers born before 1980 have died off. The word "pearl" was a very widely used descriptive...

Re: Drum Brand Preferences
