    Poll: Which standard sparkle finish on vintage drums is your favorite?

    Blue sparkle reminds me of Christmas day 1977. Champagne is the bees knees. These are my sparkly thingys

    Do any of you regularly use a Super Sensitive?

    I play out regularly with a 1964 SS. It's got bark, bite & the ability to go from sloppy to ultra crispy quickly & easily. I've never found it 'finicky'.

    metal snares

    A Rogers COB Powertone would fit nicely with that kit and are fantastic snare drums. BTW, 600 pounds sterling is 756.28 USD (today).

    Original Ludwig Floor Tom?

    I'm still freaked out that Intelcom lost my 15x12 Champagne drum....If by some weird twist in fate it shows up at my door I'd trade you for your Blue Oyster! I have a 1970 Blue Oyster Super Classic.

    The Price of Gold

    I had a DW kit with gold plated hardware back in the 90's & the plating was much more fragile than chrome or nickel plating. It wouldn't ever be my my choice again.

    Floor tom lost in mail!! Update

    I didn't say it would be a good update....So I tried a melting pot of everyones advice: be patient, don't go insane, contact the seller, leave a paper trail, open a case with eBay & learn Intelcom's calling waiting music off by heart, practice singing counter-melodies, harmonise it & talk to yet...
