Re: Premier Drums

Screwdrivers suck, even the mini, they slip off all the time. A quarter works fine on mine and is comfy to hold.

Re: Ludwig 1930's Rope Tension Drum ?

Re: Ludwig 1930's Rope Tension Drum ?

Re: Speed King bearings

If it is adjusted too far back and does not float or bounce when you take your foot off, it goes click and I think it's that hook. I simply turned them both in the same slowly until it stopped....

Re: Speed King bearings

Know what's kinda funny, when I turn the bottom adjustment screws, the beater head goes closer or further away from the head at rest. No click either. The pedal floats or bounces when you take your...

Re: CB 700 Drums

I can speak for CB-700 metal snares. I found one in the trash after my 506 got lifted and after a spray painting and head changes, the rest sounded very good. I played it for about 15 years with my...
