    Unknown Drums, No Badge Update and Thank You

    It's been a blast re-learning everything from tuning to what sticks I like. A lot of people helped out trying to figure out their origin and age. Never did nail it exactly, but the search was fun,almost as much fun as I have playing them. Never did see a picture of drum's with the lug design on...

    Unknown Drums, No Badge Update and Thank You

    It was awhile ago I asked for your help trying to figure out the place where my drums came from and a lot of you helped out. Never was able to lock it down. Closest was an old Peace or a kit named Bestler. After the restoration I was all consumed with the search for the maker. In the end, I...

    Still searching, made a few friends that are trying to help out to. Down to 81-83 ,leaning to china, the silvertone idea is out, I am gonna get this, but I am really getting the itch to bang on them. Got a response from mlucas123 on my email. The rhythmart idea is close but the lugs don't...

    I made a mistake, the small tom's are horizontal grain, but for sure mahagony, sorry I didn't mean to miss lead anyone, the shell's are awesome, when I re-cut them not a single problem, but I am a big believer of good router bit's that are sharp, Thanks Wally

    I am the one that took the wrap off, it was a silversparkle, re wrapped in cherry veneer, dye stained sanding sealer and then went to a local body shop for clear coat. If you have time check out the entire post , I have been driving people crazy with these for a couple of months. Look at the...

    Ok, I give, looked at everything I could find. thank's to all that helped your all the best. It's time to give them a name and maybe a special badge, I am thinking, Black Cat Drum-Refactory , the motto will be "rebuilding drum's that came from who know's where" LOL, on another note ,say I was...

    Nothing on there sight now, the off name stuff seems to always short lived. Trying to figure out hardware suppliers, that may be the key, not so much a badge. Man I am having a blast, thanks to everyone who has helped Wally

    Maybe i have been looking at it the wrong way. I have been chasing a badge for ID, but maybe I should have thought about hardware to. The pic on the far left is a Crush Alpha set, the middle pic is my set,it holds the 8,10 and a cymbal. In my opinion ,the rubber feet are the same,the far right...

    I am seeing that a lot. The names seem to be short lived but the hardware as well as the shells are the same or close to the same, when I got mine I started looking at bearing edge stuff on line, mine were fair , looked like they went around the router but no touch up or sanding, maybe that was...

    I'll be checking that out, they seem to have the same stuff as silvertone, they have to have some kind of connection. I wonder how many place's are kicking out shells in the east? with all the stencil kits that I have seen under so many names,it's just crazy to me that there is that many names...

    No kidding, never even dreamed that, I guess it was kinda like going online today. I guess my age is showing, I remember when I was a kid the m/P stores did exist, I bought from them when I played. I guess this project got over shadowed by our current tech. I'm trying to find out about kit's...

    Music stores actually had the ability to order no name stuff? That is awesome to know. It would explain some things. I'm in southern wisconsin, the name that keeps coming to me is Silvertone, the canada connection is only a little ways away and they talk about silvertone through there sears...

    To be completely honest, I'm scared to play them, I put Emperor Coated on top and pinstripes on the bottom, they are not under tension, not a pair of sticks around. It was never about the name, it was about making the shell the best I could, the finish was just an extension of the shell. That's...

    Holy crap,never heard of them but i've been out of the game for a long time. That certainly looks like it could be the winner. Ok now, my snare is chrome steel, I believe that looks like a six lug 16" The picture is a black kit and has the badges as an Id. They look like Silvertone kits,which...
