In my last move something happened to the wing screw for my Gretsch floating action pedal.
These are apparently an uncommon thread as I went thru a large pile of vintage wing screws here & none worked. Also I know it's not stripped cuz I tried the wing screw from another Gretsch pedal & it...
Howdy! My 1st post in a zillion years.
I've been playing & collecting vintage Italian cymbals for some years now.
Recently I snagged an older UFIP Bravo 18" cymbal that appeared from the pics to be a flat ride.
It showed up today & sure enough there's no bell...but it's not flat! The top side...
I picked up a few things locally including a paper thin 15" Zildjian trans stamp cymbal.
This cymbal is paper thin & sounds like a Chinese cymbal, beautiful.
However, its hella warped?
I'm not super concerned but curious if anyone has successfully flattened an old warped cymbal...
Here's a nice original Premier 2000 model snare drum.
No missing parts or extra holes.
Die cast hoops, slotted tension rods, aluminum shell.
Even original snare wires! Wires are missing a few strands.
Some chrome flaking & pitting is present but really not bad, I took pics of the worst.
So I'm interested in a drum like this:
I've been experimenting with wider tom intervals and have a deep love for the OLD...
I've owned & played pretty much all the old vintage drums, I love them.
I've never owned a Kent set. I've been keeping an eye on Ebay but the complete sets don't turn up often.
I 'm looking specifically for the thin shelled Maple drums, not the later Japanese ones.
I want a 20"...
Howdy folks, a few things to sell:
1)old UFIP 14" hi hats, 964/1200g, these are the Bravo series. They have a real "new beat" vibe going on, good medium set of hats here, lots of patina, center hole on top hat has a few cracks that have been there for many years, they were like that when...
I recently acquired an older Yamaha Recording Custom snare. It needs some help. It looks like the butt side is missing something?
Also, did these have special wires or can I use regular ones?
I'd like to bring this back from the dead, intrigued by the 8" depth & die cast hoops...
I had some amazing local auction scores last night, including old Gretsch's and a shopping cart with a decent sized vintage Zildjian pile....12 cymbals, some of which are old K's.
I'm pretty confident on my A Zildjian stamp ID's but I haven't had many old K's....can anyone chime in...
I need a 20" bass drum hoop, wood.
Its for an old Ludwig but its in "players" grade condition, so I'd be down with any old decent wood hoop.
I would like it to be grooved for an inlay though.
Japanese is fine too.
Let me know, thanks!
Just picked up this old cymbal for cheap. Guy said it seemed like an old A but had no stamp. I immediately thought its probably an old Italian pie, which I love.
But now I'm not sure!
I can't find any evidence of an old ink stamp which the Italian cymbals often had.
Measures 20" exactly, not...
I've searched for this answer but can't find a specific answer.
I know Tosco was its own company making cymbals in Italy. At some point Sabian got involved & the cymbals were still made in Italy. Was there a point at which the Tosco name was used for Canadian made cymbals?
The pics are of a...
