Re: Do You Use Vintage Hardware for Gigs?

I used all of the original style stands/throne with my late-50’s Rogers set for a while. It was nice carrying lightweight stuff, but I soon learned nobody but me could give a rip. I had to chase...

Re: Ludwig Rail Consolette Mount Parts

Re: Tama Artstars - Cordia Wood Restoration???

The technique your friend suggested (using 0000 steel wool, not 000) is a proven technique used on new wood products finished with a polyurethane or similar. When used with furniture wax, it...

Re: Rogers Drums

I could be wrong, but it appears as though the 12 has two patched holes on the panel to the right of the white sticker. Not a big deal to me, but if it is advertised as “no extra holes”…

Re: What are the tonal differences between Ludwig & Rogers?

Dans advice is wise. Sometimes though, particularly in the case of vintage musical gear, it comes down to how the particular instrument makes you feel. I think I play better on drums that I really...

Re: Ludwig Early 80’s

I’m with Marty on the Super-Sensitive snare. The snare mechanism was always hitting my leg, too. With those big sizes, I would seek out a deeper snare (6 1/2”), either a supra or any other.

Re: Sonor Teardrop Drums

And now that I look at it, they replaced the original tom arm with a Pearl-type one. Not a big deal if it works for you…

Re: Sonor Teardrop Drums

You won’t be sorry, unless the floor tom leg mounts are not functioning. They have very cool leg mounts but often pieces are missing. I tried for two years to find a missing one-wing bolt for mine...

Re: drum sale-bay area only

Drumrmat,
So sorry you took a turn for the worse and have to give up playing. I can only imagine what that must be like.
