    LED Metronome

    Has anyone come across a metronome that flashes the beat? I don't want to use a click track, and all I need is a small flashing light to let me know if I sped up during one of those downhill choruses. Thanks.

    Late-50's Avedis Zildjian Sizzle-Ride in Very Good-Condition for ?

    The diameter is 20 inches. I don't have the weight on hand, but other examples of the same cymbal weighed in around 2800g or so. You can also get an idea of what it sounds like from this video:

    Late-50's Avedis Zildjian Sizzle-Ride in Very Good-Condition for ?

    Would you be interested in trading for a Zildjian K Custom ride 20". I believe this is from the 90's when they first brought this cymbal out. It is completely unlathed, so it has clear, deep stick definition, a loud bell, and it's considered to have dark overtones. However, I have gone to K...

    1920's Rudolph Wurlitzer Snare Drum

    I had a Wurlitzer snare drum from 1925 that was made by Leedy. It was a very different drum from the one you have, but I found a good description of it at the National Music Museum. You might try them. If they know of your model, they provide pretty accurate specs, such as the following: From...

    Sorry, Dan My bad. Does anyone know the approximate serial number ranges for Rogers silver GG in the 60's?

    Rogers Silver GG question_Calling Dan C.

    I recall that you once explained how Rogers went through three lots of silver glass glitter wrap in the 60's. Do you know the approximate serial number ranges for them? I am particularly interested in the middle range that dated from late Cleveland (?) to at least 65xxx. At what point did...

    The orphanage - drums to complete your set

    I am looking for a Rogers 13" silver glass glitter tom shell in fair to good condition. It needs to be from one of the earlier versions of the wrap Roger's used, Cleveland or early Dayton, but not the more pewter-colored version in the later Dayton drums. I will buy or trade for it. This...

    Rogers hardware on toms and bass drum

    I resisted the conclusion that the arm was bent, first confirmed by Dan C. a year or so ago, because whoever bent it did such a good job. No indications of heat or stress to the metal. But the conclusion is now inescapable. One thing I haven't tried is to install it on my rack tom to see what...

    Rogers hardware on toms and bass drum

    Thanks for responding. Given that the description refers to 8-F as a "shank with an angle bend," do you have any idea what the angle for 8-f looks like? From the drawing, 9-F appears to be a right angle, and 8-F appears to be less sharp of an angle, but it's hard to tell. I am partly...

    Rogers hardware on toms and bass drum

    With respect to the "old paper" that Grampa Cleve posted to this thread, can anyone confirm whether the tom arm depicted as #8 in the top left hand corner is the same as the one in this photo? Thanks,
