    WTB - 10x14” Rogers Blue Onyx Rack Tom

    Looking to complete my Rogers rock kit. It’s already a Blue Onyx orphan kit of Cleveland / Dayton / Fullerton era drums (13/16/18/24), so any era rack tom would be wonderful. Pic below for reference:

    Favorite Jack DeJonette cymbal set?

    My favorite is from the Trio Beyond Saudades album (‘06) - but admittedly I’ve never been able to nail down what he was using there. The way he works that ride (... and the rest of the kit, of course) is incredible. Anyone have some inside knowledge on which set up version that was?

    Davies Drums - great snare from a fantastic boutique builder. 5.5x14” quilted maple stave with glossy blue lacquer and wood hoops that really open up the sound.

    Going for a Bill Stewart-esque theme this morning... though with a vintage Rogers flare instead of Gretsch. For cymbals I've grouped together some gems I found from fellow DF members along with a few others from over the years: 15" Zildjian K Custom Special Dry Hi Hats 20" Zildjian K Custom...

    Regal Tip Billy Martin Drum Sticks

    Regal Tip discontinued these - I can’t seem to find them anywhere online. Anyone have a few pairs they’re not going to use - or have a line on some at a local drum shop? I haven’t found anything local to Baltimore / DC area.

    Gretsch Round Badge Bass Hoop Cracked

    Thank you to all for your input! I have a line on a period correct one with inlay, but if that doesn’t work we’ll see how wood glue and clamps work out.... or Precision as well.

    Gretsch Round Badge Bass Hoop Cracked

    I just received a near pristine Gretsch Round Badge Aqua Satin Flame kit... but the bass hoop arrived cracked. Too good to be true - nearly no checking or spider webs in all the wrap, a one owner kit that shines like its new Has anyone had any luck removing a vintage satin flame inlay and...

    Let’s see your Luxor and Powertone snares!

    Great question. I did as much "research" as possible online... but what sealed the deal for me last year was this video from the Memphis drum shop where they compare a re-issue to an original 6.5x14" The newer ones sound a tad brighter, maybe a tiny bit thinner (maybe), but overall a...
