    Piezo Pick up in Suitcase Kit?

    Hey, a question for the friendly drum mob. Has anyone put a Piezo pick-up in an acoustic drum? I have no experience at all with these pick-ups. I play my suitcase kit quite a bit & usually end up micing it in louder situations. I thought it would be cool to mount a Piezo inside & drill a...

    Blue Agate Slingerlands 20/13/16 - SOLD

    Was happy to hold onto these for awhile, they sound great - but I got a bad case of "my wife is a teacher & it's August-itis" I wanna say these are '69 or so - black/brass badges but larger 70's muffler knobs. No extra holes. I've cleaned them up but there is room for improvement. 16 has...

    Drop Shadow Bass Reso Logo

    so, I had acquired & restored this '66 Stage Band a few months back & ended up with a modern vintage reso head on it - I only had a white slingy sticker & slapped it on. It looked really classy to me, the white on beige. But you could barely see it. So, I outlined it with a fine point pen &...

    Band Flyers

    Anybody else make band flyers? Graphic design is part of my day job & I end up with this sometimes enjoyable band "duty", plus I handle all the artwork for an old friends band in Richmond, Va. including CD design. Most of the time I end up grabbing a vintage movie poster, magazine ad or photo &...

    1966 Grey Agate Slingerland Stage Band Restore

    I watched this 20/12/14/14 snare kit, somewhat overpriced, get relisted twice on ebay without a bid - the drums were not too far from me at 3.5 hours & I never had a single lug kit & loved the wrap - so when the auction was getting ready to wrap I messaged him with a low but fair price if they...

    Badge edges up; any tricks for fixing?

    I am restoring a '66 Grey Agate Slingy Stageband Kit. On both both the Tom & Bass the badges edges are up & away from the wrap. I don't want to remove the grommets & the centers are secure so a ball peen on the inside of the grommet won't help. Anybody got any tricks or techniques for getting...
