Re: We're very much like this Pit Bull

Our mini-aussie brings gifts of numerous chew toys around the table while my wife and I eat dinner.

Re: How I celebrated my 68th birthday!

Mark,
I took the Zostovax vaccine many years ago, but then a few years ago they came out with Shingrix, which is purported to be far more effective in preventing shingles. I had been trying to get...

Re: Star , Model 8256

Brian,
I have an old Pearl snare in blue sparkle wrap that I use when I perform with my PureCussion RIMS set because the Pearl sounds good but is relatively quiet. I don’t have any parts for sale...

Re: How I celebrated my 68th birthday!

Happy belated birthday, Mark. My wife’s birthday is also the 16th. I have no doubt that the good karma that is your staple came back around to save you. May you be a contributor to VDF for many...

Re: Yer Forcing Me…

I know the chrome wrap can be problematic, but not as much as the copper! I guess I am caught up in the memory of going to a high school jazz competition (Reno, perhaps?), where they had a...

I have sent two emails - so far, no response. Maybe only reads emails on Saturdays??

Re: Ludwig Combo Vistalite?

Mike,
Those are great! Love the Dr. Seuss-inspired cymbal holders on the outdoor photo.

Re: Are They Vintage?

I bought some screw-on vent grommets to put on all of the converted toms. Instead of trying to get them each exactly centered, I just centered them underneath one of the badges and didn’t worry...

Re: Please help to identify this Slingerland snare drum

I had a Slingerland snare from that era and it was single ply. Are you sure yours isn’t? It really cracked and was higher pitched than most other drums I had owned, and it was 6.5” deep.

Re: Are They Vintage?

I got the Slingerland lugs, and guess what? They, too, are too short to cover up the existing holes! There went my plan to place the four non-conforming lugs on the player’s side so they wouldn’t...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Already measured them out. If I used one current hole for mounting, the other hole would be visible below the lug. I am not averse to drilling new holes, but I wouldn’t want any holes to show on...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Thanks, everyone. So far, the 12 and 14 sound pretty good. The 10 is only 6 1/2” deep, so I will have to offset the lugs. I hope it has enough depth so that it doesn’t sound choked. I’ll update...

WTB: Yamaha Lugs

Looking to buy Yamaha lugs like the one pictured. I need four of them, complete with mounting screws, washers and inserts, ideally.

They are about 2 3/8” long.

I would also like to find 8...

Re: Are They Vintage?

[QUOTE[/QUOTE]

Mark,
I couldn’t find any new ones, even from Yamaha. I took them off of the 15 and 16. I am still four short for doing the 10” tom, so I ordered some Slingerland replicas for...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Here are the finished products, at least the 14 and the 12. Still waiting on the hoop for the 10.

Re: Are They Vintage?

Next, I laid out the new lug holes on blue tape instead of the shell wrap. Using a right-angle straight edge, I laid out the location of the line of holes I would need to drill. I checked my work...

Re: Are They Vintage?

The original bearing edges were pretty complex. The slope toward the inside of the drum is about 35 degrees. I do not have, and couldn't find locally, a 35 degree chamfer bit. I decided to go with...

Re: Are They Vintage?

The first order of business (after removing all of the hardware again), was to check the top bearing edge, and the bottom edge that would also become a bearing edge. I started with the 14, and it...

Re: Are They Vintage?

Very well, brothers.

I acquired this set of 1982 Yamaha YD9000 (Precursor to the Recording Customs) drums about 1 month ago. I paid $900 for them, which included the nine Yamaha drums you see in...

I know this topic has been discussed on this forum, but since it didn’t directly affect me before I didn’t really pay a lot of attention. I recently bought a large set of 1982 Yamaha YD9000 drums...

I am certain that, through the magic of Hollywood, you would be perfect! If only they were filming in the Great White North!
