    Questions on Late 20s Leedy 7x14 Brass...

    This strainer certainly looks to be nicely installed from the inside, no traces of a hack job that I see. And this snare is so clean, I can't see how it would have needed a new strainer installed without any evidence of heavy use anywhere. Also some interesting prior owner history found inside...

    Entirely possible, I'll know more when I pop it open this weekend. Do you have any of these late 20s catalog pics? I'm familiar with Mark's work on the vintage strainers. John

    59 Ludwig Trans Badge WMP Super Classic Capture

    Finally got these cleaned up, dialing in the calfskins is a new phenom for me; I usually put them on a kit just for a little while, but these sound so nice I think they'll stay right where they are. Hope to get some outside glam shots before long.

    Gretsch Moonglow Satin Flame

    You know, I'm not really a 60s/70s Gretsch fan due to head fit issues, but I would take a chance on these wraps due to the sheer coolness factor. Ditto on Slingerland's.

    Trying To Recreate Gretsch's "Silver Sealer"
