The Noble and Cooley Horizon kit he’s currently using is fantastic!
I’ve never seen this snare listed anywhere (I’ve seen a Longo Purpleheart, N&C SS maple, even a Kep at one point) - but this one has very unique looking lugs on what appears to be a piccolo metal snare.
Any thoughts on what...
I think I've narrowed down this drum to the early 40s, but I'm a life-long vintage Rogers player so I would love the Slingerland experts to jump in and lend their knowledge -
I believe the badge tells me 1937-1943 (http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/drcjw/article_1_badges.html) which would give me...
I missed the boat on these a few years back - maybe there’s a kit out there that’s ready to move on to a new home:
Gretsch Royal Blue Oyster 18/12/14 or 20/12/14.
Any leads would be greatly appreciated!
Who has one lying around and wants to earn some extra holiday spending $?
The ones on Reverb are all around the price of a new one... looking for a deal on DFO to save us all the fees!
Thanks for looking and for any leads!
4.5 x 14” solid Birdseye Maple shell, classic Gretsch 30 degree edges, but with re-rings. Sounds like a phenomenal drum! (Though I believe they’re no longer in production).
Just curious, does anyone know if Gretsch made the solid shell, or if they were supplied by a different manufacturer?
I’ve been amazed at what comes up in this great forum... so, here’s a shot in the dark.
Does anyone have a Slingerland Artist Solid Shell Snare in blue agate sitting on their shelf collecting dust that they’d like to move on down the road?
Thanks for looking and any potential leads!
I love my Rogers Tower 12/14/20, but I’ve been thinking of adding on a 16” floor tom as well.
Did Rogers ever make a Tower (center lug) 16” floor tom?
I’ve never seen one, but that doesn’t mean much...
I’d never seen a 16” (deep) x 14” (diameter) Rogers floor tom until this year either - and...
Hi All - looking forward to see if anyone has either (or both) of these crashes in their cymbal bag / propped up against a wall gathering dust that they’d be open to sell:
Meinl Byzance 20” Extra Dry Thin Crash
Meinl Byzance 18” Vintage Crash (not the Benny Greb Sand model)
I just received a near pristine Gretsch Round Badge Aqua Satin Flame kit... but the bass hoop arrived cracked. Too good to be true - nearly no checking or spider webs in all the wrap, a one owner kit that shines like its new
Has anyone had any luck removing a vintage satin flame inlay and...
One day I'll be able to hit a cymbal like Bill Stewart, but what better way to practice than on the ride he inspired / helped design.
Interested in the 20" and/or 22" (ideally I'll eventually find both with enough time and patience).
I have 2018 Zildjian K Constantinople crashes (17" and 18")...
I’ve been listening to a lot of Charlie Hunter featuring Carter McLean on the tubs and his Agops (it seems he has quite an assortment) sound fantastic!
A while back he featured a set of Keropes and they sounded fantastic!
But a few years later he then released another video of his Istanbul...

DW Collector's Series True-Sonic Snare Drum 14 x 5 in., Chrome Hardware.
For Rogers lovers this is the closest thing to a brand new COB Rogers Dynasonic that DW launched a few years back.
There are some faint stick marks on the batter head and I changed the...
Both are from the late 90s, brilliant finish still shines (with fingerprints of course). Left in a cymbal bag for 15+ years untouched means it’s time to sell.
