I didn’t really worry about swirls much, it had enough swirls already.
I used it to knock down the big scratches a bit and then hit it with a coat of wax. Good enough, it’s a players drum and you can’t really tell from 6 feet or so. Next up - probably going to get the hoops repainted. The...
I don’t know if this will work for you but here’s what I’ve been doing for years. Get a small cheap mixer, used is fine. Get an inexpensive microphone and cable and a cheap boom stand for the mic. Put the mic over the drums. Plug the mic into the mixer then plug the computer into the mixer...
That's a blast from the past. I bought that hi-hat stand w/legs, the Camco style pedal, one of those boom stands w/counter weight, a straight stand, a snare stand and a throne (at the time, the best throne on the market) back in 1985. I still have all of them. The throne is in my bands practice...
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?
Now, now lets not be too harsh on JP. I find him to be quite helpful.
Here’s the ‘65 Slingerland Artist he helped me with. Rebuilt Zoomatic strainer, new muffler and he straightened the snare butt. Not period correct but it’s a players drum
Here’s another vote for custom molded in-ears. Doesn’t matter how loud the guitars crank it up I’m still at half volume for the monitor level. I also have the custom molded ear plug for when there’s no monitor system.
Best 600 bucks I ever spent.
I have a v1 Malletkat and a late 60’s Japanese student vibraphone that I’ve been slowly rehabbing for the last couple of years. There’s a slight warp to the frame that I’d like to get out. I also need new felt for the damper, the one on there now is too tall. If anyone knows a supplier I’m all...
Nothing in particular, just looking out for any possible issues with it. I did really want to see one first but nobody local has one. I almost pulled the trigger last month but I snagged a '65 Slingerland Artist at a good price and spent a few weeks rehabbing it. Now I'm just waiting for a Black...
A little love for the LX Series? I have a 10/12/14/16/22 5x14 in Regal Royal fade. Beautiful finish. I bought them brand new. June 2006, Pacific badge.
No pictures of the whole kit at the moment but here's one of the snare and the 14" tom after getting it's new legs.
