Re: Observation from my friend

I'm also a member on both sites daily checking, "New Posts" and chiming in once in a while... more so on DFO than here just due to volume/topic interest.

Re: Please help me identify a Ludwig 6.5x14 Black Beauty

I got my BB on 12MAY1981, rounded B/O badge #2200370. Maybe that will help place your drum a bit. Consider it may have been manufactured around that time, but may have also sat on the store shelf...

Re: Reverb - in other carts

Dan,
Consider that it is probably the easiest way to find that 'product' again rapidly without having to search for it.

I think it's less likely that a retailer is putting it in a cart to add...

Re: New Scam

I didn't know that, I've never bought/sold anything on eBay. However it doesn't surprise me that they would make the process difficult or near impossible to report problems of the 'marketplace'...

Re: New Scam

I'd report to eBay. If they're legit they'll fix the issue so then can continue to sell... if not they'll get bounced (hopefully)!!!

Re: Slingerland bass tuning nightmare

Shell in round and ruling out defective heads (by trying multiple heads), this may be a bit more challenging to troubleshoot. Hopefully Rob's suggestion may reveal something.

I would also suggest...

Re: Slingerland bass tuning nightmare

Greg, have you measured the drum in more than one spot to check for roundness? I would measure across the drum in a least 4 different points (more would be better - like near the lug points) as...

Re: Is this Snare Black Nickel Plated or Black Lacquer Spray

With just a cursory look, I'd say it was spray. If it was black nickel plated the interior of the shell would also have some color to it. When plated the shell is dipped in a bath and the interior...

Re: ASBA Caroline Pedals

I'd also reach out to the folks at ASBA and see if they are going to move forward with reproducing the pedal. I'm sure if they get enough interest it may push them to production. They have a website...
