Re: Ringo's cymbals in new Get Back documentary

I’m not even sure when Zildjian started inking their cymbals. I thought it was later than ‘68 and was just on the top surface (which that would be), but regardless, that does not look like the bolder...

Re: Ringo's cymbals in new Get Back documentary

Doesn’t really look like Zildjian or Paiste to me. Aren’t Paiste’s hammering more uniform? That looks like hand, or hand guided, hammering to me. Which would be similar to A Zildjian but the shape,...

Re: Leedy BDP drum set

That’s a cool kit.

One of the drum stores around here had a leery bass drum- I think it was an 18”. What I know is that it was a total bowel-shaker. Seriously serious bass drum. It was used for...

Re: This is the Display Your North or Staccato Drums Thread

First time I ever saw a North snare drum. Hard to imagine it has a “dry” tone.

I do recall a white kit in my local music store when I was a kid waiting for my private lessons… I thought it was...

Re: experts in 'really vintage' japanese drums?

I certainly appreciate you thinking of me!

I would prefer Yamaha branded ones; I can get all sorts of Gibraltar stuff locally. And not because they’re “better”, just trying to restore it correctly.

Re: experts in 'really vintage' japanese drums?

I’m not sure of the size because they didn’t come with my drum.

I guess if you asked, and they knew, it’d be a great plan!

Re: garage sale Rpgers Dynasonic help please

I solely blame my powertone snares for my tinnitus. Those rimshots would cut Diamond at 20 paces.

Re: experts in 'really vintage' japanese drums?

I was not able to locate snare wires using that number on a google search, eBay, or Yamaha's site.

Are the spec's known? If I get a set of Puresound wires for a 15" snare, will they be long...

Re: experts in 'really vintage' japanese drums?

That's an interesting wrap!

I have the "red ripple" and it looks nothing like that. Any idea what it is?

(same bass drum logo as my kit too)

EDIT- Waaaaaaaait a minute. Is that a chop-job,...

Re: More boom on a 20" bass drum?

How deep were their 20" floor toms?

It may be a converted (at the factory) floor tom shell.

If those were only 16" deep (I only played a Ludwig kit with a 20" floor tom during high school- it...

Re: Premier Tom Mounting Bracket

I agree RIMS look bad on vintage drums but the sound….

And with creativity, you put the mount on the bottom head and “hide” the mount. It depends on how heavy you play, but it can be worked out. ...

Re: Older 9000/Recording Custom floor tom leg mount

I’ll see if I can get down to the Drumgeon tonight.

They used to be all over eBay new and used but now I haven’t seen any at all for a year at least (other than attached to floor toms).

Older 9000/Recording Custom floor tom leg mount

Hello again guys.

I want to do the unthinkable, and drill extra holes in my minty 18" RC kick drum to mount an old school cymbal arm. I plan to use an era correct RC floor tom leg mount, but they...

Re: 1978 Ludwig Super-Sensitive available

Differences are subtle for sure.

You can get crazy sensitivity with the SS but it generally ends up being a buzz factory on a kit if you get it that sensitive. Better for concert use for sure.

Re: Premier Tom Mounting Bracket

What I did on my D-20 kit is use a rims mount and take the rail off the bass and plate off the 12.

Looks good; sounds good and I can put the Tom anywhere. Also, fully reversible if you sell...

Re: Ludwig bass drum i d help

No leg holes- possibly a concert bass, which used to be put on a folding stand.

We had a similar arrangement at my high school (back in the 80’s) but it was a 26” in our case if I recall...

Re: Help identify this kit! (Probably CB)

Those lug casings were used on a lot of kits back then. My powersonic kit had the exact same.

It may be in the parts list, but the snare wires did not have a part number if I remember right (which may be "not in the catalogue"). But, like heads, the wires are a wear item... I was able to get...
