Re: Muffler felt. Can you wash it? :)

I clean dirty felt bass drum beaters with Clorox bleach pens (pedal collector). Engine oil may be too tough to remove. I don't know why that would not work on a white internal muffler. It takes a...

Re: Best Wires for a Fifteen Inch Ludwig Marcher

Brian, Yes, the "dot" is indeed like some kind of applied resin instead of a plastic adhesive dot. You can tell by the ragged edges of the dot. Those heads will last forever. The Canosonic heads...

Re: Best Wires for a Fifteen Inch Ludwig Marcher

Brian, I was having a "senior moment" and forgot all about the Duraline heads. The other early brand that you don't hear much about was Canosonic. They had a crappy flesh hoop that was plastic...

Re: Best Wires for a Fifteen Inch Ludwig Marcher

Brian, I completely forgot about some early Kevlar (or similar material) heads that were popular for a little while back in the 60's and early 70's. There was a brand from Japan that I think was...

Re: Best Wires for a Fifteen Inch Ludwig Marcher

I played a Kevlar batter head on a Premier side drum in a bagpipe band and it had both internal and below the bottom head wire snares. About 90" of the sound was provided by the internal top snares....

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

I guess the King didn't want any competition with his sequined outfits?

It actually is an interesting topic to follow the finishes/colors available for drums. Just the cosmetics of drum shells,...

Re: Premier Flat Based Cymbal Stands

I have not seen any of these stands in a long time, but maybe the screw holds the rubber foot in place? It would seem to me that Premier could buy rubber feet of the correct size but maybe an owner...

Re: Does Anybody Know What This Brass Shell Rope Drum Is?

I have essentially the same drum with the fancier "worm" red, white, and blue paint on the hoops. I think this is a common British military design known as a "Guards pattern" and agree that Potter...

Re: The Magadini / Briko Power Rod Bass Drum Pedal

I am not sure if it is really an advantage over the Camco style but it plays with a light "touch" similar to those pedals to me. It has been a while since I played it so maybe it works better only...

Re: The Magadini / Briko Power Rod Bass Drum Pedal

It is a nylon "strap". Looks kind of like thick weed eater string. There is something similar on an early DW pedal. You can see it better on the photo of the DW pedal. Sorry I don't have the...

Re: The Magadini / Briko Power Rod Bass Drum Pedal

They play very well. I would compare them with a Martin Fleetfoot/Camco/Floating Action/early DW. I collect bass drum pedals and this is one of my favorite designs. They don't fit in your hardware...

Re: One word: "Plastics"

In my mis-spent youth I worked for Jimmy Corder at his Custom Clear Drum Company which made clear acrylic drums. The most know early clear drums were Zickos I believe. I know the idea had been...

Wonderful. thank you so much. The only information I found on old Yamaha pedals is one blurry catalog page. I also have a Yamaha/Nippon Gakki pedal.

Help identifying 60's (?) Yamaha bass drum pedal

Hello, I have not been able to find any information on this Yamaha bass drum pedal. It was listed on Reverb and came from Belgium. I can't imagine what the designers had in mind (just kidding...

Re: Merry Christmas to the VDF

Ho cubed (Ho to the third power) from Joe's Boom Boom Room. Too hot for Christmas in Northern Alabama, but no problem, the egg nog is perfect.

Re: Ludwig Dual Strainer Snare Drum Help?

Just a guess, but did Ludwig experiment with making a snare drum for the pipe band market? Premier is known for the internal wire snares under the batter head for the pipe bands. I don't know when...

Re: Snare Stand

I don't remember the product name or brand but I saw some of what appeared to be rubber arms designed for just such a purpose at Fork's Drum Shop. It may have been a Pearl product but I am not sure....
