    Hi cost of shipping + cost of packing material/boxes =

    I'm pretty much done selling large items (drum sets & heavy hardware/stands etc..) on ebay. Add on the cost of doing business with ebay at approximately 13% (fee + paypal) and I just can't get what I want for my stuff. Free shipping is now the norm it seems for online retailing so the hobbyist...

    Brass Piccolo Snare SOLD

    Thinning out the collection and have decided to sell this 13 x 3 ten lug brass piccolo snare drum. No name or identifying marks. Bought it years ago from a now defunct local drum shop. Snare wires say Taiwan. She's a tank and when cranked it can pop your ear drums :) Shiny and bright, dark...

    OT: Anybody else get the Holiday Blues?

    For some reason this time of year really gets me down. Maybe it's the expectations and pressure to get the perfect gift, send out Christmas cards, and put on a happy front. My family has a hard time understanding my feelings. I wish the Holidays were more about family and friends counting our...

    Ringo and Bonham read on...

    Ever noticed how high Ringo sat over his kit, knees bent at a greater than 90 degree angle while Bonham was probably 90 degrees or less. Based on my height and drum sizes I am right at 90 degrees. Seems to me too high and it's harder to get rim shots while too low and that's all you get. What...

    SOLD :) Mid 70's Ludwig Supra $225.00

    Up for your consideration I have a mid 70's pointy B/O badge Ludwig Supra serial #1536134 (no date stamp or other internal markings). Rims, t-rods and brass washers, muffler, P-85 and butt plate all look to be original. P-85 functions smoothly as does the muffler. Minimal pitting and scratches...

    Sorry guys but what is reasonable

    when making an offer on a drum or part or whatever? Messin around on local craigslist and made an offer and the guy got a little annoyed. Just a cheapo MIj Pearl snare. Just politely say no and move on. Lowball, insulting, and don't waste my time seem to come up. I don't get offended when...

    Where to buy Acquarian American Vintage Heads

    Suggestions on where to buy these heads for a 1956 WFL tom. I would like a medium single ply for the batter and a thin single ply for the resonant in 16". Do they actually fit the older drums? All the heads I have now are way to snug. Thanks in advance. My local Guitar Center had no clue. Coy...

    Regarding Speed King Pedals

    Guys I am curious, did Ludwig make two different Speed King mounting plates? One for narrower hoops and one for wider hoops? Sorry if my description is not quit accurate. But you know, the part of the pedal which slides under the hoop. I seem to remember reading this somewhere, maybe here :)...

    Hey everybody new trick for making repairs

    Just got a vintage 12" Slingerland tom from a fellow DFO brother that needed some holes plugged and patched. We have all used dowels of various sizes to plug the shell but cutting a perfectly round piece of wrap by hand has been, at least for me, a bit more difficult - especially small pieces...
