    Vintage Hardware Lot Sale - Ludwig, Slingerland, Rogers

    That's what I thought it was, too! I didn't want to mis-identify it just in case kit isn't that, but it looks most similar to those Buddy Rich stands from Slingerland. Cheers!

    ISO: Istanbul Agop Xist Crashes - 20" and 22"

    Hi all! I'm on the lookout for some Istanbul Agop Xist crashes - both 20" and 22" sizes. Specifically looking for the normal line, not the Brilliant, Power, or Ion versions. I've fallen in love with the sound of these cymbals and if anyone is letting go of them on here, I'd love to be their new...

    Help me learn about my Zildjian A’s!

    Sounds like you've got yourself sorted out! That sounds like a wicked combination. I really like the slosh of these hats, but I'm not sure I totally dig their lower volume and lack of "chick" - I think I might just be used to the definition of Sound Edge hats. I've been eyeing up 16" Giant Beat...

    Help me learn about my Zildjian A’s!

    I'm definitely going to have to get one soon. I've been doing this far too long! Thankfully UPS is literally around the corner in walking distance from me.

    Help me learn about my Zildjian A’s!

    Alright, so the scales at UPS were only in pounds to the hundredths decimal point, so I got 1.95 pounds for the top and 2.10 pounds for the bottom - which translates to 884.5 grams for the top and 952.5 grams for the bottom. Light?? Looks like you were too low AND high there, deegeebee!

    Help me learn about my Zildjian A’s!

    Thanks for your input everybody. I'm going to try to find a place to get them weighed, and I'll see if I can getting a better sounding recording with my little ZOOM device capturing the audio. I'm considering selling them since I barely use them - could anybody suggest a price range for these hats?

    Help me learn about my Zildjian A’s!

    Cool! This is the kind of information I was looking for. Good to know. I’m used to 2002 SE hats, so these are considerably lighter than what I’m used to. They’re very close in weight to each other, I have to tap them to hear the difference to determine which is top and bottom. I don’t! I wish I...

    Help me learn about my Zildjian A’s!

    Hi gang! Let me say first off I’m a Paiste guy. I know very little about Zildjian cymbals, so when I got these 15” hats in a bulk purchase of a drum kit, I didn’t know what I had. I still don’t know. I know they’re 15” hats. VERY thin, they sound fantastic. Bottom hat has a very small crack in...

    Anyone else starting to like original condition kits more?

    Dan! Welcome aboard to the DFO. I follow you over on IG and I've watched your Bailey Method videos. Big fan of your drumming (don't even get me started on Reignwolf..... I can't stop....) I definitely agree with you in terms of a kit not being "all things to all people." Some kits just have...

    So what is so special about Rogers drums?

    Hate to state the obvious, but the new Rogers stuff does a pretty damn good job at recreating the tonalities and sound qualities of the original Rogers shells. I played one of the new kits at the Covington Drum Show last April, and let me tell you, I've never been more impressed with a 20" bass...

    Paiste cymbals - would you recommend?

    I currently have a set of 1976 15" 2002 SE hats, an 18" pre-serial 602 ride, a 24" reissue Giant Beat, and a 20" white label Giant Beat that I use as a group together, and by God they are incredible as a cohesive unit. The 18" ride sits at 1650g, while the 20" GB is 1880g, and those two cymbals...

    Talk me down from a new Dynasonic

    The new Rogers drums are using a lacquer sparkle. Unless the drums are BMP, WMP, or an onyx, it's lacquer. All of the sparkles, the black finish - they're a lacquer. They're building the drums using the same style 5-ply shell (the new kits will be 3-ply) as the primetime Rogers used in the...

    Rogers Powertone/Powerlites

    He does have a record of the aluminum and steel shells, it's the serial number range I mentioned above. The Dayton era Powertones with brass shells are identical to the "Cleveland" tagged ones simply because they were made in the same Covington factory, the only difference is the acquisition of...

    Rogers Powertone/Powerlites

    You have both an aluminum and brass Powertone snares. Rogers experimented with aluminum (and steel) shells for their Powertone snares in the latter half of the 1960's. I do believe that Rogers historian Jeff Burke estimates that these aluminum and steel shells were produced with the serial...
