    Ludwig Acrolites

    Interesting .. thanks for the reply. So allowing the raw aluminum to patina, does that mean you did nothing to it after the set sanding? what does it look like now and does it keep changing? I've never seen the process in real life.

    Ludwig Acrolites

    on a slightly different Acrolite issue ... I recently tried to clean my 70's brushed aluminum acrolite and used a harsh cleaner, one that ended up taking off the brushed look, so now it's just the bare aluminum. Has anyone ever had the same problem? Ever tried spray painting these drums a...

    Did a DFO member in Michigan score this Slingy set?

    I bid on the kit only to be declined by the auction company cuz they wouldn’t ship. So I made arrangements and a deal with the local UPS store to pick it up and ship it for me if I were to win the bid. The auction company still wouldn’t let me bid on it. I think she was saving it for a local...

    What is it??

    What company made this drum? 5 x 14 , and I think it is chrome over steel .. There's no brand name on the drum nor is there a MIJ or USA tag anywhere. I found a similar throw off reference, which looks to be sold by Danmar. Just wondering if someone can help identify who made this drum. thanks

    Tama Starclassic question

    The 16" floor tom is missing the legs .. I'm searching if anyone has spares and wondering if the 1994 floor tom legs are different from the later versions of starclassic legs?

    Thank you halldorl. That must have been a treat touring the TAMA factory. Were you there for endorsement, buying, picking up a free drum kit?

    70’s Slingerland Shell Lay Up

    Partial Mystery solved ... Siquimite was correct .. after taking the hardware off and getting a good look at the drums, here's my take on the kit. The kick drum is a 1961 P and I'm guessing the 12" rack tom is the same era. The wrap is an aftermarket veneer stained green. Actually done quite...

    70’s Slingerland Shell Lay Up

    This is not along the lines of your conversation, but I haven't found the appropriate thread yet for my curiosity. I'm a newbee to threads and still learning . This slingerland kit just arrived today and I'm not finding the finish in any of the vintage catalogs .. 20" kick, 16 floor 12 tom and...
