    :SOLD: Gretsch Early '60s Round Badge Kit 12-16-20 1960 Blue Sparkle - $1600 + shipping

    Round badge Gretsch kit from the early '60s. Sizes are 8x12, 16x16, 14x20. Here's the good: Kit is super clean. No extra holes except for the Ludwig tom mount, which is the only mount on the shell, so I suspect that it was installed at the shop at the request of a customer. It takes a modern...

    On the hunt for '80s Imperialstar Tension Knob/Butt

    I have started working on a 5" Tama Imperialstar snare. I already have a parallel action Imperialstar King Beat 6.5, but forever I've wanted one of these 5" drums. The throw is a flip switch, and tension is adjusted on the butt. HOWEVER, the butt is kind of beat up. The threaded rod is bent and...

    Ludwig Atlas Tom Mount. $40 shipped or....

    Mystery kit: PDP prototype or DW entry level kit or ...?

    A friend has asked me to sell a kit for him. I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what they are. The shells are DW branded, and stamped on the inside as being manufactured in 1999. However they have what appear to be PDP lugs. My research indicates that PDP did not start selling drums until...

    Rounding over the edges on a 6-ply Ludwig kick

    I'm a Ludwig 3-ply guy. I don't think Ludwig has ever made a better sounding kit than the 3-ply Thermogloss drums. I have a set of mid-'70s Thermogloss toms (12-13-16. holler at me if you have an 18 to sell!) and a 24" 6-ply kick with a perfectly matching finish. It would not surprise me if...

    WFL/Ludwig faucet-handle t-rods, 6"

    You thought the 7" Club Date t-rods were hard to find, the 6" ones that came on concert bass drums and on VERY old kick drums are nigh impossible. Anyone got any that they thought would work on a Club Date kit and now you're hiding them in the back of your parts closet? I will take them off...

    Drum sound Ronnie Free gets on "Parchman Farm" and "If You Live."

    What the heck is Ronnie whacking on 2 and 4? Is he cross-sticking on top of a wine cask? What an incredible sound. Rudy Van Gelder engineered. No great shock that it sound amazing. Wish I knew what snare that was.
