    Your drum room

    Hey Laz! Your room looks great! Is that a homemade amp I see on the right? Showing are "drum rooms" is always a popular thread that comes up from time to time. Still, we all love to show off our rooms, so here's mine! I rotate the sets that I set up and this doesn't show my current kit on...

    !,000 Drum Brand Names and Counting

    Makes complete sense! Concerning these "no name" unbranded drums, I do know that many of these were sold from stores such as Sears, Montgomery Ward, etc. I believe there would have been some name on the bass drum head, but once you changed the head, you'd never know! Of course, we now know that...

    !,000 Drum Brand Names and Counting

    Excellent work, SwivoNut! There were quite a few "no name" MIJ 60's kits, that only had air vent grommets. Where would these fit in? -Mark

    Correct length for Gretsch RB Tom Tom Tension Rods?

    Attached are two pictures of Gretsch RB floor toms, both with the same size lug on the floor tom. The Stralight sparkle tom has the lugs farther down, requiring the longer tension rods, while the Blue sparkle kit has the same size lug farther up and requiring the shorter tension rod. Not really...

    Do you lube your tension rods?

    I've never found it necessary to lube the tension rods. When I'm doing a complete restore/refurb, I always make sure the tension rod threads are clean and also chase the lug nuts to remove dirt and grime. That's all I've ever found to be necessary. -Mark

    1960's 22" Slingerland Resonant Head

    Yes, they do show up from time to time. Can be difficult to find in VG condition, though. Still, you never know, so just keep your eyes open! These are period-correct heads on my 1967 kit. The original inked logo still looks great! The batter head also has the original "built-in" muffler strap...

    Slingerland Lug Hole Spacing

    Yes, there were small and large beavertail lugs. I just checked out the replica beavertails at Drumfactorydirect and saw that both the bass drum and snare lugs are 2-1/4", but the small tom lug is 1-17/32". Still, that's only 1/32" wider that the Sound King lugs at 1.5"...or 1-16/32". Hope this...

    Slingerland Lug Hole Spacing

    Hi DB! Slingerland Sound King lugs, introduced in 1955, are... 2.25" for both the double-ended snare lug and bass drum lug. The small single lug, usually found on toms, is 1.5". I'm not familiar with the Beavertails, but I believed they used the same hole spacing. -Mark

    70's oyster blue

    Hope you hear back soon with a positive response. Yes, he's asking top dollar, but I hope he realizes there's a relatively small amount of interested buyers and will be open to a fair negotiation. Good luck! -Mark
