Re: Vintage Tama Titan throne top seat is stuck!

When that's happened to me, I've tried holding it upside down in the air (or better yet, have someone else hold it for you) and hit the underside of the seat with a large rubber mallet. That usually...

Greetings,

I recently picked up this cymbal. I have never seen a hollow ink stamp oriented that way on a cymbal before. This is also an 18" cymbal, and I've also never seen the hollow ink...

Hard to believe no one snatched these up at this price. They are on Reverb now, but still available.

Re: WMP Wrap Pc.

These popped up here for sale in my general area. I had seen Ludwig Combo snares for sale (I believe the lugs, and the shell were made of plastic). I have ever seen Combo branded...

Re: 1964 Ludwig Pioneer

I have a 66 Pioneer that I love.

I would check out Remo Skyntone heads. I've never used real calfskin heads, but those that have say they are the closest modern head to real calfskin. They are...

Re: Early Pacific Drum set questions

Excellent info here.

PDP also made a 3" x 13" Steel Shell Piccolo Snare Drum with those lugs that was around in the mid-2000's. I have one and it's great.

I like the different names for the...

Re: Wet sanding black diamond pearl wrap

I wet sanded a Silver Glitter MIJ kit a while back with great results. I used a 3M Headlight Restorer kit. It came with the sandpaper, pads and the "sandpaper holder" that you put in a drill. I...

Re: Whitehall Kick Leg

Hi JR,

Is the diameter 3/8"/9.5 mm? I imagine it is. Although it won't be curved, you can go to the hardware store and get some 3/8" solid steel rod material and cut it to the length you need. ...

Re: MIJ Rail and Cymbal Mount

Hi JR,

The hole spacing on that cymbal bracket should be 1 7/8". A Ludwig P1216D Bracket will fit that perfectly. A Gibraltar Cymbal L-Arm will work well, as it's 3/8"/9.5mm in diameter.

As...

Re: Pearl Tom

Looks two extra small holes and one large hole.

Re: Some old non-descript Ludwigs

Those look like "Standard" lugs, yes?

Also, based on the little bit of the inside of the bass drum shell I can see, it looks like there is no "Granitone" interiors and might be maple?
