Re: Ludwig Concert Tom Bottom Hoop Restoration

These are the same type of trim used on Slingerland concert toms. I used aluminum polish on mine and they came out very nice!

Re: Rogers Swivo BD Spring?

I've my share of those "stretched" Swivo springs and somehow they seem to keep going like that for decades! TommyP might have more info about this.

Looking at the original stretched spring and the...

Re: Rogers Swivo BD Spring?

Wow! You really lucked out! Good for you! The larger spring is for the Big R pedals and won't work for the Swivo. Hang onto it, as you never know when you, or someone else, might need it. Now, go...

Re: Rogers Swivo BD Spring?

Hi Kurt!

Rogers used a really specific spring design and it's next to impossible to find an exact aftermarket duplicate. I'm sure you're aware that one end of the spring comes with the bushing...

Re: Uneven lug spacing on Slingerland snare

Back in the day, I'm not sure if "seconds" were ever considered. The drums either passed, or they didn't. In this case, someone passed your drum, in spite of some lugs being off-centered! My educated...

Re: Uneven lug spacing on Slingerland snare

Erich...

This really sounds like a punch machine that, for whatever reason, didn't align properly with your shell. It could have punched perfectly spaced holes on the shell before and after yours,...

Re: Uneven lug spacing on Slingerland snare

Erich!

Wow!! Sure appears to be off somehow! First, did you take the pictures with an iPhone? That's probably the cause of the rotated pictures when you click on each one. Some websites are able...

Re: That great Kent Sound

Hi Wayne!

I haven't seen many US Kent sets! Member 1966bmx loves these drums and has quite a few complete sets at his house in southern California. He hosted a drum "yard sale" some years ago and...

Re: Uneven lug spacing on Slingerland snare

Hi Erich!

I've had dozens of Slingerland COB snare drums over the years and have never had any issues with lug holes that were incorrectly "drilled". Actually, the holes were punched. Now, that...

Re: Some old non-descript Ludwigs

Hello JoeDrum!

As K.O. points out, these are the Rocker series of drums. A quick look over at Drum Archive shows that they are from approximately 1988. The wrap appears to be Silver Smoke. I would...

Re: Vintage Rogers Snare Drum

Exactly! I believe the throw was called the "orchestra". It was also found as a clone on many MIJ snare drums from the 60's.

Re: Vintage Rogers Snare Drum

Hi Murf!

A really cool picture of your playing that snare drum! It's not the same drum, though! As to the picture of the strainer you provided, while it is the "clockface" strainer, the style of...

Re: Vintage Rogers Snare Drum

I do hope that the OP will weigh back in with this! As to the drum being a 1965, that still seems highly unlikely as the Beavertail lug was the predominant lug by then. Now, it is possible that the...

Re: Vintage Rogers Snare Drum

Additional info!

I just found my serial number guide and it shows the Holiday series, with 21xxx, to be from 1962.

Again, seeing pictures of the throw-off will better help with the year.

Re: Vintage Rogers Snare Drum

It is a nice looking snare drum. However, all the hardware points to 1963-64. The style of Script badge didn't show up until around 1964. The muffler is an early version from the early 60's and...

Re: Rogers Hoops

Dan!

Rogers Tall Boy hoops measured 1-1/4" in depth. I just checked the "normal" hoops on my 1966 Headliner and they measure 1-1/8" in depth. While an extra 1/8" with the Tall Boy hoops doesn't...

Hey O-lugs! I definitely don't remember this, but would like to know more about it if anyone here as information.

Re: Old Pearls

Yes...it's the MLX series from the late 80's. Nice drums! As to value, I can't really say. All depends if your buying or selling.

I reoriented the pictures so we don't have to crane our necks!

Did you take these with an iPhone, holding it vertically?
