Re: New Dynomatic Tom Arm

That thing is hideous!
Would never put something that looks like that on a vintage Rogers kit.

Re: Square-head Tension Rods for Vintage Sonor

There was a Japanese brand many years ago (a subdivision of Pearl, I believe) which made drums with compatible tension rods which I had to cut down to the necessary lengths to fit Sonor drums. Today...

Re: Premier 6021 Vs. 2000

As to the question of "more valuable", the Model 2000, if in excellent condition, is probably more valuable to the collector as Premier's top of the line snare drum. The parallel snare adjustments...

Re: Can you help ID a mystery loop clamp style bracket?

Definitely not MIJ. Appears to be US vintage Walberg & Auge manufactured shell mount L-arm holder (or other accessory holder) which was utilized years ago by Ludwig, Slingerland, and other high end...

Re: Rogers Clutch Question

If memory serves there should be no problem. Both wing screws shared 1/4-20" threads.
However, there is always the possibility of damaged parts or stripped threads which could make things not work...

Re: Sonor D444-Steel or Brass shell

Looks like a steel shell. Having owned a steel model, I would certainly not dismiss it just because it's not brass. The steel model is quite a powerful drum and holds its own (or outdoes) most of...

Re: Old style Ludwig internal dampener vs. baseball bat type

Unfortunately the mounting holes are incompatible. In addition, the mounting holes of the knob adjustment dampeners made in the later years of Ludwig production are incompatible with those of the...

Re: "Fusion" drumkit by New Wave

What I find most intriguing is the drum throne; the base tripod of which appears to be a vintage Trixon with spring loaded legs! The padded seat on top of it obviously not Trixon, with a "cilo" logo...

Re: Orange/Amber Wooding Cristalline BD (Rare!)

The drum is manufactured by MEAZZI in Milan, Italy, the same company known for MEAZZI HOLLYWOOD TRONIC DRUMS, PRESIDENT MODEL, and MOD JOLLY drums. Most likely made in late 1960s or early 1970s. If...

Re: Identify Cymbal Stand

Those are Premier/Olympic.
They manufactured a 'budget' line in the 1970's.
The wingscrews in the tripod base are identical to the Premier 250 bass pedal toe clamp wingscrews.

Re: Newspaper Bass Muffling ??

Re: Tko "pro" percussion

The brand name "TKO" is derived from the boxing term "Technical Knock-Out"! True! That kit is the best looking one I've ever seen! Taiwanese manufactured if memory serves.

Re: Fab snare throw off but what?

Looks like an older vintage TROWA (East Germany) butt plate retro-fitted on to a compatible (maybe TROMSA or another similar brand) throw mechanism.

Re: Sonor/Trixon

No. However, some of the 6mm x 1mm shell mount tighteners could possibly interchange.

Count me in! I own an Dixie branded 5 1/2" x 14" ten lug and it's a beautiful sounding drum. Worth paying up to $100 shipping included for sure! Yes Sir

I've seen several variants in the older MIJ kits with metric tension rods:
The most common threading is 5mm. x .8mm. Occasionally 5mm. x .9mm is found. The first thing you might do is acquire a...
