Amazingly, in 49 years of drumming, I've never had to weigh any cymbals because I rarely sold any. I am downsizing a bit now, and want to sell my excess stock, and just keep the 1970s Zildjians I use with my Gretsch Round Badge.
So I bought one of the digital scales that were...
I have been looking for a Zildjian 17 inch Thin Crash for quite awhile, and this one popped into my lap intio my lap for a very reasonable price so I grabbed it.
As you can see, its got a small chip in it. No big deal as its very minor wont affect the sound much if at all.
Just saw this really nice compact 1960s Carlton snare drum on Ebay. Its likely pre-international size heads, but look at the beautiful wrap and those lugs! Not sure how nice the metal work would come out after polishing, but a really nice time capsule anyway...

Does anyone have the book "New Breed" by Gary Chester? I'm trying to find out if it has his complete (or close to it) list of 14,000 sessions he played on. I have a short list, but it would great to see it fleshed out. He really was the Hal Blaine of the East Coast. He played on TONS...
Forum brothers....I need your opinion on something.
So, I sent my Gretsch RB tom tom shell and snare shell to Precision to have the edges done. I used UPS, who have been pretty reliable for me.
Today, Precision lets me know that the snare shell has been damaged in transit. Attached is a...
Please tell me your thoughts on this very strange Kent Set:
1) To me, this looks rewrapped, as the only Blue sparkle Kents I have seen are a much darker shade. (the seller says its faded GREEN sparkle...WTF?)
2) This has a Gretsch consolette mount rather than the normal Kent...
Wanted 1960s Gretsch RB 9 X 13 Tom Shell in BDP wrap.
Has to be RB and not SSB, No extra holes, and the BDP wrap has to be in really good shape. No hardware or badge needed.
please let me know what you have.
