    Opinion needed on Keller Maple shells

    I tried to inspect a bare Gretsch RB 12" tom shell I have - the gap was there but it was not deep or all the way thru. I will simply plug it with filler and fix the issue to finish the drum.

    Advice: 16x12 or 16x14, or even 16x13 bass drum?

    I'd go 16x14 deep. I have a few of these that are great. Shallow won't give you much of a bass-frequency sound. I'd do #4 (Swede build) and also keep an eye out for #5 always. Key is the heads on this and Aquarian makes 16" super kick bass batter heads which is what I use on my 16's........

    Best way to paint vintage bass drum hoop?

    My hoops were bad to begin with. I sand it smooth and the matte paint covers everything. It's literally the $1.00 can at Home Depot - the generic brand they have in white or black gloss or matte. I didn't realize the rest of the pics didn't post:

    Floor tom brackets with 2-1/4" spacing

    Please don't damage your original Camco's! This is what I found: 1) Vintage Slingy mounts are 2 1/4" - tough to find. 2) Premier also made 2 1/4" FT leg mounts......also probably tough to find. 3) Jammin Sam has ones that are 2 3/8" (yes 1/8" short) and IF you decide to enlarge your holes...

    Road trip to pick up...why drums! Imagine that.

    ODD SNARE DRUM FREE FLOATING LUDWIG??? OR WHAT??

    Could be anything - I am guessing MIJ - "Tokyo, Japan Percussion"??? I hope it's dirt cheap although the mallets maybe worth a few bucks...... I do like the "free floating" system, though....I have a similar system for testing snare shells.....

    First gig with my “newest” Rogers kit

    Can you mount that center splash off the cymbal stand to the right to do away with that non-lightweight stand? And what snare did you use?

    Sweetwater Cymbal Damage, You Too?

    Dust, if that's the condition of the cymbal you got, I'd be bashing SW! Totally unacceptable. I don't know how much of a discount they offered, but the point is they need to learn how to pack cymbals! You'd think they notice how mfgr's send them cymbals (presumably well packed!) and they'd...

    Calling all "Pearl People"... Do I REALLY Know What This Snare Is?

    Thanks, Peter - I also didn't know they came with the single flange hoops + clips... PS: Sorry, Ward!

    Best way to paint vintage bass drum hoop?

    Here is the last set I did. They were in bad shape. The "inlay" is 1/2" silver sparkle vinyl tape.....I think it looks classy. 12/14/18 USA bop kit square badge from 1981-82 in black sparkle. The logo is a Gretsch guitar logo but I thought it looked cool......

    Value of Gretsch Dixieland snare?

    I am not a fan of 6 lug snares. I've owned a Slingy student - it was just bad. I do have a few Luddy Pioneers - they are actually pretty good. I have a handful of Gretsch Dixielands - I think 3 - but the only one that's a full snare (the others are just now shells) is a 50's 3 ply in worn...

    Value of Gretsch Dixieland snare?

    Hoops (very hard to find), badge (plenty out there for crazy prices), and throw (another hard to find) are easily sell-able for $50 each. Shell (it depends) - but probably another $40-50. 6 lugs - call it $40. But would you pay $240 for that poor mangled mess - no way! Ones in good condition...

    Stone Temple Pilots Drummer's New Set is Cardboard. Sounds Better Than Bubinga?

    Heck, if they could build a kit outta ice (for those short setlists!), why not build a more "durable" kit out of cardboard......and for all we know, the cardboard was made from USA maple wood chips????

    Just snagged an Odery Cafe Kit

    I love the color! I have a 10x14 70's Slingy 5 ply tom that I converted into a bass drum. I added hoops, claws and retractable legs. I wish Aquarian made 14" Sound Kick bass batters, but they only go to 16 (I pretty much use them on all my 16/18 basses). For this bass, though, I use a reso...

    Calling all "Pearl People"... Do I REALLY Know What This Snare Is?

    I know little about Pearls, but I think the Sensitone 10 luggers are called Sensitone Elites. I had a stainless steel 5x14, die cast hoops, tube lugs - it was such a classy snare and sounded pretty darn close to a Supra - and an amazing deal for $60.00! But I then scored a Rogers COB Dyna...
