Re: WTB ludwig Jazz-Fest shell

Re: Lido Supreme...just a Lido with sour cream?

That turned out great! The only thing that could make this thread better is more pics including closer-up views.
That was very smart to color match the head with the wrap.
I too have one of...

Re: New Bearing Edges for MIJ

I might be the odd man out - but I believe this advice (that this thread concludes) applies to ALL drums regardless of what make. Why not give it a chance to perform the way that the designer...

Re: Cool little Japanese outfit

Yeah that's made by Hoshino. Shells are thicker, no rings. The lug inserts are held in my little tabs that slide in - and they are made of metal - much like modern ones that are made of plastic. I...

Re: If this cymbal sounds near as good as it's killer

Hummmm I would think the response would be quite cushy, soft, and it would likely sound real warm.

Re: Here's A Nice MIJ Set Priced Right

Yes, I believe Kenny would take the title as the King of Vintage MIJ.
More importantly, I am glad that he and the seller (of the kit in question in this thread) have come to a better understanding...

Re: Lido Supreme...just a Lido with sour cream?

Flaky Supra drive me crazy. I just decided to enjoy Acros instead.
My vote would be do sell that Supra. Since it is Keystone, you will recoup most of your investment here.
As a matter of fact,...

Mystery bongos

I think I might have a bit of a stumper here.

Slotted tension rods.

Teardrop type lugs. I am not going to automatically conclude Sonor though, not identical to their teardrops I don't think...

Re: MIJ Wrap Finishes-Let's Rank 'Em-Popular To Rare

Measure the BD shell depth. Is it a 15 incher? I have a Pearl made kit similar - BD shell is 15, not 14.

Re: Keyholed Scimitars. What to do???

Yeah - round it out (repair) and/ or use a grombal.

I will add this though - I used that exact cymbal on a CD I recorded in 1994, and listening to it, you would never guess it was such a cheap...

Re: Snare Manufacturer "VIBRATION"

Sorry Dave Drums - my mailbix is full, can't get messages until I find time to clean it out.

At the time, there were three major drum manufacturers in Japan. In the analogy of the "Big 3" of the...

I hope you have not use steel wool on that snare. It will scratch up and indeed make it dull.

Re: Vintage Pearl Snare

Pearl did not stop making the re-rings until 67 or 68. So, I would depend more heavily on the dating of the badge, while filtering through this shell construction dating.
Indeed very rare to find a...

Re: new MIJ snares

Loving those!

When it comes to how they sound - IMHO the thicker the shell the better.

I have a Star made thick shell (Luan of course) and I can't believe how good it sounds. I am putting it...

Re: I can't resist a nice sparkling pearl MIJ kit

So what is the FT? Thin or thick? Rings or not?

I believe the tom is Hoshino.

Re: Hoshino Drum Spurs

I used to say that Hoshino is the 3rd of the big three in vintage MIJ. Perhaps AMC would be a better analogy?
I see they tried to model the Rogers lugs. I wonder if these are as solid as they look. ...

Re: New Tama Flat Base Hardware Pack-Very close to the 60's Ludwig-$100 less than DW

Has anyone reviewed these for the forums (thread)?

Never heard of ChromaCast. Affiliated with anyone else? Look like Tama or Yamaha.
