Re: how to approach bearing edge crack on Radioking

Gave it a try with the G2 head. Snare side fits pretty well. Reassembled and it sounds reasonable. Not as ringy as my very early krupa sound king. But now the snares are the right length (since...

Re: how to approach bearing edge crack on Radioking

I did some squeezing of the shell using two sets of bar clamps with 2x4s on each side. by turning the shell between the parallel 2x4, you can find the high spots. Got it to so a standard G2 head...

Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

I used to hate any kind of ring. But got hooked on brass snares and when they are tuned nice, can't bear to muffle. Of course depends on what style of music. Ring does not match everything. ...

Re: how to approach bearing edge crack on Radioking

Good bit of options. Good to know it can potentially be stable. Originally there was an ancient diplomat head on there that was hard to remove. Sounded papery. Also the but end of the strainer...

Re: how to approach bearing edge crack on Radioking

Good option. I was trying an Evans G2 coated. I am up for squeezing the shell a bit. I leveled out the part where the crack is. One side was higher than the other.
I will try the classic first...

Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

Also going from muffling snares (tape to dots to pinstripes to dry heads) to enjoying the ring of brass-shelled snare drums.

Re: how to approach bearing edge crack on Radioking

Thanks for the replies! Could you recommend which silver solder? I think there are a few melting temps. Also, what flux?
Another bit-the shell is slightly out of round on the affected side. I...

how to approach bearing edge crack on Radioking

Just got this late 50s (?) Radioking snare. Upon removal of batter head, I noticed that the top of the seam at the bearing edge has separated. Separation is only at the top. The shell could be...

Re: How have your drum sets evolved over the years?

First kit was a Japanese Kimberly blue sparkle (bass tom and snare) in the early 70s. Added some random Gretsch pieces. Moved to a nice white 6 piece Premier kit in the mid 70s. Still have that...

Re: What are the correct snares for Slingerland zoomatic

Thanks! I like the idea of the half extended wires. I did some experimenting and if it is not right, you can lose contact with the head which totally defeats the purpose.

What are the correct snares for Slingerland zoomatic

Referring to 60s/70s era. From various pictures it appears that the snares should pass thru the rim on the butt side and and just before the rim on the throwoff side. Does that equate to a 14 inch...

Re: Got my bearing edges recut on vintage premiers

Thanks!!! They have been with me since the mid 70s. They were originally white. After all the years they developed yellow splotches so I rewrapped them in chrome. That enabled adding the 22" bass...

Re: Got my bearing edges recut on vintage premiers

There were definitely spots that were not level or no edge. All that nasty stuff on the left came out.

Re: Help indenitifing slingerland snare

Nice drum for sure. Brass shell for sure as mentioned. The TRD strainer is a plus with snares extending past the edge of the resonant head-giving more sensitive response. With the more common...

Slingerland Universal Snare drum?

Just bought this drum. Appears to be nickel with the slim rim clips. Had to make 5 clips to hold the head on. Sounds quite nice! Cleaned up beautiful. This should be around 1940 ish?
