    Nothing new on the Rebeats page. Is Illinois open? Any changes on your plans to attend? I’m fully vaccinated and a month out. Still trying to decide if I’ll go or not. I’ll have to make a decision soon.

    Thin felts for vintage cymbal stands - Solution

    Where can I find thin felts for vintage cymbal stands like Ludwig, Slingerland, and Rogers? I want to try the old washer/felt/cymbal/felt/washer/wing nut set up. The felts that I’m finding are too thick. Thanks for any leads. My usual Jim Petty doesn’t seem to carry thin ones.

    It took me a while to find this, but I knew I had it in my files. This is from a green pamphlet from a marching clinic held by Ludwig years ago. It might prove useful in working with a Tune-bot, Drumdial, or chromatic tuner.
