    Gretsch Broadkaster snare mare!

    Anyone else had this kind of problem with a special ordered Gretsch snare? A couple of the lugs have been drilled about quarter of an inch out. Never ordered a drum before and had loads of problems, waited 14 months for the drum and had to replace it, this is the replacement! It's also got...

    Gretsch Broadkaster snare

    Hello, haven't posted for a while, been really busy with a new touring show based on Sun records. Anyway, when I got in this show I decided to buy a Gretsch Broadkaster vintage build kit that had been winking at me for a while in my local drum shop. This was 14 months ago, and at the time, I...

    Ludwig Timpani stool

    Just bought a really nice 60s Ludwig timpani stool, can't believe how sturdy and comfortable it is as I've always seen them described as terrible! I usually use an old Premier stool and find it really light but sturdy and comfortable. Anyone else like/use the old stools?

    Old Sonor stool?

    Recently bought this stool. It was sold as a 60s Sonor, but I can't find any info about it. It's very similar to a 60s Ludwig timpani stool and unlike any other Sonor model I have seen. Anyone know what it is?

    Ludwig cocktail drum.

    Seen a nice looking 60s Ludwig cocktail drum with a Pioneer snare in red sparkle on Ebay. The seller wants 800 British pounds for it. I'm tempted but is that a bit much? You don't see them come up very often, especially over here. It's too far for me to go and have a look and the photos aren't...

    My 'new' 1961 Downbeat kit and a question

    Just bought a really nice silver sparkle Downbeat kit with matching Jazz Festival snare. It seems to be in really nice original condition, just needs a bit of a polish. One surprising thing, the small tom seems to have steel hoops. I was expecting brass on all the drums, the snare and floor tom...

    60s Premier Oyster 202 kit

    Completed my new Premier kit with Lockfast stands (the bass drum cymbal arm came from America!), really nice 18" and 20" 5 Star Super Zyns and trashy 18" riveted Zyn and surprisingly good Zyn hi hats. I think it goes well with my art deco fire place! :-)

    Sold at Bonhams, how did I miss this? Described as black oyster, but it's blue isn't it?

    My new old kit Late 60s Premier Oysters

    Haven't bought any drums for ages but I came across this late 60s Premier 202 kit in oyster finish just round the corner so I thought I'd go and have a look. Anyway I ended up buying it for £400. How did I do? Unfortunately I can't seem to post links anymore, can anyone help...

    Ludwig cymbal stand?

    Did Ludwig ever actually make this stand or has someone just added the bottom of a snare stand to the top two sections of a 1400 stand? I've seen a few of these and there is a picture of a Joe Morello kit in the book 'Star Sets' by Jon Cohan with a pair of these stands.

    Another pricey Ludwig on UK Ebay, but is it blue or black (oyster)?

    Says it's blue, looks black to me: What do you think?

    Ludwig Super Classic- a bit pricey? You don't see many of these, especially in England.
