    Need help with my Leedy Broadway.

    Murphy’s oil soap should clean the inside nicely and no harm the wood.

    Earthtone head logo removal and decal made?

    Gramps..... or.... if you have a good artist friend, you could match the color of the head, airbrush over the logo, and have someone reproduce the Jos B Rogers signature.

    Earthtone head logo removal and decal made?

    Gramps, that is a good question re removing the logo. Since it is a skin head, there would be no coating that would come off. Can you experiment with acetone on an old split calfskin? re your logo.... I would get a really good copy in the size you want and take it to a store that makes ink...

    Color to match vintage Gretsch walnut kit?

    I don’t think a minwax stain will cut it. You may have to use a die to get close and put a sealer coat on.

    Bearing Edge Snare

    Nice drum! Tell us more about the drum, such as construction and materials, etc. I remember the drums but not the details.

    question about Rogers snares

    The Swivo strainer shouldn’t make any difference in the sound, especially if the drum is a beavertail Luxor (which is not mentioned). If a beavertail drum, the original strainer would have been the Sta-Tite which is very similar to the Swivo and uses the same holes. Anyway you look at it, the...

    Nickel hardware

    Looks good. Be very careful with the buffing wheel. Nickel is a very soft plating and when polishing, you are actually removing the nickel itself. Even with simichrome. I have seen lugs that were buffed that removes most of the nickel plating.
