Re: Burying cymbals in dirt to make them sound better

I tried this once, burying a splash in the backyard for a few months. The result? Nothing but a dirty cymbal.

Re: Do You Use Vintage Hardware for Gigs?

I don't use vintage hardware, but have started converting over to modern flat based hardware out of necessity. After three hernia surgeries, I still get groin pain, probably as a result of scar...

Re: Someone Needs To Write The Definitive Book on 60's MIJ Drums

Sorry, Mark, we have to disagree. I thought it was a huge disappointment, something he slapped together quickly. It could have been much more informative and comprehensive. I was so disappointed, I...

Re: Rogers, keep or sell?

I agree, the 14" Rogers tom is a rarity. I would keep both sets if I were you.

However, if you decide you don't want the Rogers set, you can always give them to me! I'll pay shipping. LOL.

Re: Rogers Drums

Yes, it looks like two patched holes with discolored glue. I'd use that as a bargaining tool.

Re: 68 Slingerland Duet Outfit

I bought them from a guy who got the set as a 10-year old kid in 1968. He played around with them for a year and then packed them up until recently. They are in spectacular condition.

Re: Someone Needs To Write The Definitive Book on 60's MIJ Drums

Re: My Levon Helm kit

Nice. Very funky. DW makes a set somewhat like this in their PDP line. If I ever join a Band tribute act, I'd get those.

Re: Warped Wuhan China Cymbals?

Ludwig Standards rewrapped with Bum Wrap Pink Oyster. Or so they say.

It's more like Burgundy Oyster.

Re: MIJ Snare: $750 YIKES!

Sometimes, I think sellers purposely price things very high, so the item won't sell.
