I just picked up a Yamaha bass drum in Piano Black that's got a lot of scratches. I have a tube of Meguiar's Scratch X in my auto cleaning toolbox and I wondered if anyone has used this on a lacquered drum?
Does anyone know what the tension screw size and thread pitch on a Slingy Zoomatic is?
It looks like a #10 but not sure if it's a 24 or 32 thread pitch. I just got a Zoomatic with a box of toys and it looks like it's in good shape other than the stripped threads on the tension screw.
Does anyone know if the hole spacing was consistent throughout the run of the Rapid strainer? Dr. Wenk mentioned that the hole spacing never changed for the Zoomatic but he didn’t mention that for the Rapid. And does the TDR follow the same spacing?
Just got another Slingerland snare. It caught my eye because I had one just like it in my late teens, early 20's.

I have a piano black Yamaha Recording Custom bass drum 16X20 that I want to swap for a Maple Custom Absolute bass drum, same size, same color. Prefer a gold badge (to match the rest of my pieces).
I just picked up a mid 70's Slingerland Sound King snare that I picked up cheap and I have a question. The shell is dented under both the strainer and the butt probably because of snare over tightening. I plan to run this over to the repair shop this week. I haven't been able to find any closeup...
