Re-wrap Seams (Use glue or tape?)

Hello guys-

I'm rewrapping my 60s Sonor. I have done wraps in the past and have used 1.5 double sided tape. It is a bit thick for my taste, and I'm considering trying to find something else this...

Re: Router Bit Reccos

Yep- using a table. I have a hitachi router, kind of average. Not exactly a beast but it gets the job done OK.

It appears to be a bit of a roundover on the outer edge (small, under 1/8").

Router Bit Reccos

Hi guys-

I'm about to cut some 70s Ludwig edges.

I know I need a 60 degree bit with bearing.

Re: Bearing Edge Odyssey Starts Now

Re: WTB: 60s Sonor Teardrops

Thanks Magnus- I'll check that out.

I play mostly jazz/bebop stuff, so probably the 3-ply.

Though the 6-ply have a great sound at lower tunings.

Anyone know if the 6-ply's can be tuned up...

Re: Sonor - Turquoise Sparkle Teardrop Kit

Hi- are these drums still available?

I know it's been a while, but I thought it was worth a shot.

Thank you.

WTB: 60s Sonor Teardrops

I absolutely love the sound of these drums.

I don't care about the condition of the wrap.

Players kits are fine, as long as the edges are good and hardware is decent.

Any leads are greatly...
