    "Sing, Sing, Sing" on calfskin Radio Kings

    Taylor Swift makes history as she takes over the entire US top 10

    What era / model is this Yamaha set

    Those are 1st generation Stage series. Early 80's late 70's Really great drums. I used some of those on a backline set a few years ago and they were outstanding. The lug is a little unusual, but they grow on you.

    Source for large sheets of sandpaper?

    Go find a woodshop that has a Timesaver widebelt sander and buy a used belt or source a new one. There are many places set up just for abrasives sales.

    It is a plating issue. I bought 10 new flat imperials with the same issue. They were all that way.
