    What are vintage Instanbul K's worth?

    Hey! What do you guys know about these stamps from the 50s? Might be doing a deal with these as partial trade. Any input would be appreciated. In addition to this cymbal there would be a set of 14'' hats in similar condition with same stamp. I believe they are worth about $1000-$1250 in the...

    Drum Dial R.I.P.

    If you can't tune drums the drum dial is NOT going to help you. After I stretch heads I like to use it to get a gauge or to get an estimate of a drum that is sounding really tasty. I love mine and think it makes tuning quicker but yeah it's still about tappin and tweakin and tappin and...

    Hornet Drum Sticks!

    Hey thought I would throw this out there. I like most of you have probably had 3-5 hour shows etc and sometimes lay in a little hard depending on the night. I've gotten tendonitus and intersection syndrome in the past. Part of this was my fault (weird stick hit or awkward hold when stick was...

    Supersensitive 6.5x14 - Value compared to 6.5x14 Supraphonic?

    I've got a 10 lug late 70s Bronze Supraphonic and a 10 Lug late 70s Engraved Brass Black Beauty Supersensitive. If it wasn't for storage (had to get a special case for the BB to protect the mechanism) the Supersensitive is really awesome. it is easier to tune the supersensitve because you can...

    Rogers WMP 14'' Floor Tom

    Mine is cleveland with stay tites, beautiful smooth grey and beavers. I LOVE the stay tites. Always hated fiddling with drum keys on my 16'' swivomatic legs. Swivo Floor toms dont like all drum keys.

    Ludwig 3 play Maple/Poplar/Maple

    Hey you should be able to see some pics under my profile, they are seriously minty. I have the old double stand but don't like mounting them to the BD. I had listed them for potential sale. Anybody got a virgin BD from the same style? Wish they had never drilled mine, my only complaint on...

    Need guitar volume boosting advice

    Dunlop pickup booster would be my recomendation. I would classify this baby as a stomp box versus a valume pedal as it is does some nice tricks other than clean gain. It was designed for this application and is a nice transparent high quality pedal that can also "thicken" your sound if...

    Anyone have an old Guild guitar?

    My buddy has a sweet acoustic Guild from 74 I believe. Think they go for $1200 or so. Nice guitar, not an electric however.
