Re: Mounting two racks toms with virgin bass drum?

Driving a big band is a fun gig! Much different than a small jazz combo.

Re: Paiste 404s anyone?

I had a set of hats and a 20” ride at two different points. They sounded surprisingly good, I remember. Nothing I would take on a gig, but definitely better than any modern B8 offerings from the...

Re: Look at me or Listen to me drummer?

Definitely more of a “listen to me” drummer. There was a thread on another forum that asked how many drummers buy lights to light up their part of the stage. A surprisingly high number did. I had...

Re: Anyone Playing Out/Doing Any Live Work?

I’ve been playing pretty steadily lately, even with a lot of local venues deciding to cancel gigs, due to the surge in cases of a particular virus. I did a 7 week run of a musical, in which I used...

Re: If You could Have Only One Drum Set

If I had to choose just one to play, it would be my Downbeat. If I had to choose just one to gig around, it would be my Jazzette.

Pics won’t upload. :(

Re: Downbeat

I only see Hollywood’s and Super Classics sold locally. I haven’t seen a Downbeat for sale for years, except at Revival.

That being said, I’m playing my Downbeat tonight and my Jazzette tomorrow....

Re: Where is everyone?

I’m here, checking in every week or so. Life is busy, and the posts here are less frequent, so I’m checking in less often. I still appreciate reading good threads.

Re: Used kit flips

I have actually bought a couple of those SP 12/15/20 kits for students. They sound surprisingly good!

Re: Maybe legit... but may not

I've tried this numerous times. It's never happened, because it's a scam. Now, I don't even bother.

Re: Drum shop with the largest inventory of vintage drums.

Since you're in Selma, you're only 4.5 hours away from Portland. I would recommend you take the journey up north and visit Revival Drum Shop!

Re: Removing Wrap?

I removed a chrome wrap once. Despite working slow and careful with a heat gun and putty knife, it didn't remove cleanly, and some chunks of wood came off of the shell.

Never again.

If you...

Re: Help please--paper tags, and what model is my Rogers?

Thanks for the info! I will check for tag residue.

Powertone shells, you say? Okay. How would I know that? Is that just what they called their shells during this time? Again--I'm a complete...

Re: Help please--paper tags, and what model is my Rogers?

So, you're saying there are no named configurations for Rogers drums. Got it. Thanks!

As a Ludwig guy, I know that the old Ludwig catalogs listed names for certain configurations/sizes. If I...

Help please--paper tags, and what model is my Rogers?

Hey all! I have a 1973 Rogers kit with 12" and 13" mounted toms, a 16" floor tom, and a 24" bass drum. I tried looking in the Rogers drum catalogs, linked to from this site, and I had no luck...

22" A Medium Rides typically sell for around $120-140 where I live. They sit for weeks on craigslist for $150.

Re: Tom Placement

I've used many different mounting systems over the years on my kits. It's all about the individual drums. I have a 12x8 Ludwig 3-ply tom that sounds good with the mount. I have another 12x8 that...

Re: Gretsch RB, what heads are you using?

Yes. I used these heads on mine as well, as modern-sized heads didn't fit.

I've bought and sold a few times during this, um, unique time. To be safe, wear masks and gloves and do the transaction outside. Some people want to do a PayPal/Venmo transaction, and that's fine,...
