    Best Advice For Adhesive For Pearl Inlay On Bass Drum Hoop

    The ones that came with my kit didn’t seem to be original to it. The inlay didn’t match. The paint was really gummy, almost like a rubberizes finish. I think it started off as gloss black. It is miserable to sand. It kind of balls up as opposed to sanding smoothly. Regardless of all of that...

    Best Advice For Adhesive For Pearl Inlay On Bass Drum Hoop

    I have been sanding and filling the dings and dents. Some players really crank their bass drum pedal clamp down tight. There are some forcible dents and scrapes to fill. I have the first coat of primer on and have taken the very good advice everyone has offered. I am cleaning up the inlay...

    Best Advice For Adhesive For Pearl Inlay On Bass Drum Hoop

    I bought the original Weldwood solvent version. I just read the label and it contains toluene and acetone. No wonder it dissolved the paint.

    Best Advice For Adhesive For Pearl Inlay On Bass Drum Hoop

    I bought a 1967 Ludwig Hollywood drum set. Everything is great except the bass drum hoops had a silver sparkle inlay that didn’t match the antique white pearl of the rest of the kit. I removed the silver sparkle inlay and thought that I might as well prime and paint the hoops before I put the...

    Ooooh.....classic maple......oh no! The enticement begins again. I must look away! Too many drums and too small a bank account! But then again maple does sound so good.

    What Is This Mystery Snare Drum

    Thank you for everyone’s reply. The Evans Drum Co reply made me laugh out loud. I bought a Rogers Luxor after reading so many rave reviews about them on Drum Forum. I really like that snare a lot. I am not so sure that a Ludwig Pioneer would bring me $275 worth of happiness. This website is...

    What Is This Mystery Snare Drum

    This listing is the local Craigslist. I can see that is a Ludwig six lug drum, but the photos aren’t great. So what six bow tie lug is this? $275, is that a fair price? I can’t say why, but that seems high for this mystery snare drum.

    How Do You Figure Out What a Drum is Worth?

    Well I don't know if you guys/gals are a good influence or a bad influence, but I found a 1967 Ludwig Supraphonic on Reverb and bought it. I hesitated, but then I remembered what some of you said about figuring out how much a drum was worth to me and how much joy it would bring to own it. So I...

    I thought the older drums had a mojo that modern snares lack. It is good to know that it isn't just my imagination. Thanks for all of the input. I appreciate everyone taking the time to give me the benefit of your experiences.

    How Do You Figure Out What a Drum is Worth?

    On a related note: can anyone really hear the difference between a 1960's drum (like a Supraphonic, Dynasonic etc) and a modern version of that drum? I like 1960's drums because that is what I learned on and they make me happy. But am I chasing my tail on this quest for drums from the 1960's...
