Has anybody ever had custom lugs made?
Are there small metal shops/machine shops that do that kind of thing or is it generally not worth their time?
I have a few shells that I want matching lugs for but the already-drilled hole spacing is making that quite difficult. I've looked...
I'm having trouble finding anything I like with my 20" Slingerland Stageband Bass.
I want some new sounds and am hearing a New Orleansy, slackish, low thump/thwack.
But I'm also open to any other sounds that you might know how to achieve with these head combos on a similar drum.
Can anyone help me make a T shirt that sports the Zildjian 50's Block Stamp?
Can I just use a shirt-making website? Which one is best?
It would be cool if the stamp was relatively large on the front of the shirt. Which, I think would require a good picture that could be blown up.
I have no...
A beautiful 22" Block Stamp came into my possession a few weeks ago and it is incredible.
2232 grams of clean, dark bronze.
It's so smooth and tasty.
I want to find a nice, heavier example of a cymbal from this era to see how it's characteristics translate to a cymbal with a bit more meat on...
I would love to buy and restore an old pedal to use, not display.
I would love to find one that works well, is actually nice to play and can be found pretty cheaply.
I've seen people on here give high reviews of the Speed Kings and Yellow Jackets, and I would be interested in those...
Without looking at other's responses, tell me how you would achieve these sounds with toms.
Punchy. Articulate. Deep.
What drums, heads, hardware, tuning, muffling, sticks... anything that comes to mind!
Here we have a beautifully preserved 3 piece Slingerland drum set.
Champagne Sparkle wrap with some yellowing, but it's all completely even and all of the drums match perfectly. I had a very hard time finding any scratches and there is no damage to the wrap or lifting/speration of the seems...
I'm wondering what kind of stand this is. The base of the stand looks Slingerland, but is the top half a different brand?
It's really nice and seems to work fantastically. I dig the design.
What are some of your favorite ways to use diplomats?
I'm wondering how they are tuned high on tom batters. Ever use them on larger drums or single headed toms?
I'm imagining a certain timbale-like twang on smaller single headed drums.
Got a set of 1962 12, 14, 20 Slingerlands from a guy a couple of hours away from me. Niles badge. Champagne Sparkle. Incredible condition.
Perfectly functioning hardware. Push button floor tom brackets, retractable spurs, really cool batter side bass muffler.
Never seen a muffler like this...
I recently acquired a really nice set of 60's Slingerlands and this cymbal came with them.
It sounds really nice with the right touch and sticks.
Beautiful hammering and dark, smokey, sizzly tones.

I recently acquired these hats with a really nice 60's Slingerland set.
They actually measure closer to 13 3/16" mark on my tape and weigh a svelte 465g and 539g. They both wear matching First (pre-trans) stamps, which dates their manufacture to sometime between 1929 and 1946...
Nice hardwood, Ludwig brand tambourine, made for drumset or mounting. Nice shape. Almost no signs of use.
Sold with a nice, heavy, pleasant triangle.
Also in great shape. Sounds nice and comes with striker and spring-clamp attachment.
