    Rogers COB Powertone Snare

    Yes... he has pics. Magnets won't stick to many stainless steels either.

    Rogers COB Powertone Snare

    Well, according to Jeff, they had sent some powertones to the plater. When the chrome was stripped, there was stainless steel, not brass. He had the stainless ones polished. If he had stripped chrome off of a cob it would be brass underneath, correct?

    DW to start with Radio King snare drums

    Taking over distribution is a lot different than taking over a company and reviving an iconic brand. It was plainly an ill informed statement and misleading.

    Rogers COB Powertone Snare

    The guy that runs the Rogers fanatic facebook page took a few powertones that he assumed were brass to a plater. They told him the later ones (Dayton / Fullerton) were not brass, but stainless steel. This was a very recent revelation. Check out Jeff Burke's posts on the Facebook Rogers page.

    DW to start with Radio King snare drums

    That article says DW took over Gretsch and now DW has experience reviving iconic brands. This guy doesn't seem to know what he's talking about.

    Help on a Vintage Slingerland Radioking

    The snare, I think, was only catalogued with the Combo BeBop outfit (snare and 20" convertible bass drum). Most of the radio kings stamped rims are off center.

    Rogers COB Powertone Snare

    In the '20s it seems like metal snare (nickel over brass) were as or more popular as wood snare. Can't think of anyone that made steel snares in the '60s...though it turns out that many of the late '60s and early '70s metal powertones we thought were brass were actually stainless steel.

    Will added rivets kill value of K Complex Ride?

    This is the underside. Guess it's original. (You knew a 6 point rivet was a real Zildjian? I thought I could get gear nerdy...)

    Trinity Cymbals

    Not that I'm getting one right now, but I wonder why the 22s cost almost twice as much as the 20s.

    Will added rivets kill value of K Complex Ride?

    The guy dropped off the cymbals. He says it came this way. Turns out he added rivets to a different cymbal I wasn't interested in. So, not sure if these are original or not, but they look fine.

    Slingerland bass drum leg suggestion

    yes, the helicoil is a much better solution. I bought a kit and did it myself, but it wasn't so easy as the inside isn't open ended and I had trouble breaking off the end piece (if you have a helicoil kit, you'll know what I mean). If you're handy or can have a pro do it, it makes them better...

    Slingerland bass drum leg suggestion

    Petty screwed me on a set of Slingerland spurs... can't recommend dealing with this guy. I think the OP need brackets, not spurs.
