    The Really Slow 1964 Gretsch Bop Restore

    The Gretsch set looks GREAT! Is the Club Date set wrapped or painted? Be careful if they’re painted, heads won’t fit with wrap on those shells.

    ***SOLD*** 30's Ludwig Pioneer 15x6.5

    That 15” sure is tempting.

    Rescuing and pimping out my Leedy Broadway.

    Looks great! The new wrap may be thicker. Leedy shells are usually not oversized in my experience.

    What it could be like to go back in time to a 1930's music shop.....and buy some Zildjians.

    There are some first, or pre-trans, symbol as that have the signature rubber stamped. Like this one. I think these are after the signed ones. Or like my 12” pair.

    Here are my 12” First Stamp hi hats. Signatures are strong on both. A prized possession for sure.

    Rogers: Were there ever clear interior, non flat grey, Toms on a Cleveland/Dayton era kit?

    There are a few Ohio era kits with clear interiors out there. I believe they were employee kits.

    Is this Ludwig snare authentic?

    Badge looks too small for a modern Ludwig

    BREAK OUT THE PICS... Lets see your SOLID 1 ply Snare Drums!

    Nice! I went to Dale Vigent’s shop last year, as he’s pretty close to me. I bought a maple 6.5x14 solid maple shell from him that I’m going to build a Powertone clone out of. his shells and finished are super nice!

    So the ROMAN stamp on this cymbal says ROMANIA. take a look at the pic earlier in the thread- you can see some partial lettering after the N. Mystery solved

    I found a Super Ludwig with original heads.

    I had John Aldridge engrave a panel on my 6.5x15.

    No- here are some pics I snapped of it yesterday. Looks like the word “ROMAN” is stamped on the cymbal as well.

    I’m assuming the A is for Aram. This was posted on FB by a local shop owner. Said it’s around 13.5”. Pretty cool!!!
