    `60-`61 Slingerland New Brass Snare

    I have a couple of mid `60s Slingerland Sound Kings in standard and 6.5 depth, but this approximately 1960 Slingerland New Brass snare with a smooth brass shell and three point strainer just sounds better to me. Maybe not rare, but not common. Who else here has one, and can give their opinion...

    Photos vs just memories

    Stories are good, but photos are better. Lots of us here have them, and some of them will hopefully last longer than we can imagine.

    Where it all began

    My brother just went through all my father's old slides, and converted them. Here is my earliest known drumming photo circa `68 or `69. Mom on maracas, sister on guitar.

    Sold. Zildjian Armand 19" Beautiful Baby Ride

    Armand Beautiful Baby 19" in excellent condition. Still has the barcode decal under the bell. The only thing preventing me from saying brand new condition are a couple of tiny dimples near the hole on the bell. See photo. They were there when I bought it. No cracks, no keyholing, no flea bites...

    DCP museum photos

    Visited Drum Center Of Portsmouth again today, and took some photos of my favorite things in their museum. I'm hoping Bun Carlos can tell us a little bit about the `90s Ludwig, with a bass drum with a small batter head and large reso head. Looks like a stubby flashlight. The toms have reso...

    Drum Center of Portsmouth

    Finally took the short drive over to the new location of Drum Center of Portsmouth, now located in N. Hampton (NH). Wow!! The old store was a drum shop, this is a drum mini mall. I have never seen so many drum sets, and snare drums, in one place. Pretty much every line of drums from every major...

    Zildjian 19" Mini Cup Ride

    Bought this awhile ago because I had never seen a Mini Cup Ride that was 19". It has a `70s stamp, and a very faded hollow ink stamp on bottom. I know better than to say it is rare, because as soon as I do, a dozen members will say they have one. Maybe. All the advertising and catalog info I can...

    Quaker City Night Hawks

    Nothing fancy here, just a good band that most people have never heard of, and a drummer looking like he is having a good time.

    This is OT. Any hikers?

    Anybody on the forum that are avid hikers? Here in NH, we are fortunate to have great mountains to hike, and quite a few are challenging. I hike often. At higher elevations, we have Gray Jays, similar to Blue Jays, but they have no fear of humans, and will eat out of your hand. I took this...

    `60 Slingerland COB snare

    Every time I pull this snare out and play it, I fall in love with it all over again. Approximately `60, and it does sound a bit different than the 3 line Sound King snare I have. This drum, and a `66 Acrolite I own, are definitely 2 of my favorites.
