    Mystery floor tom leg brackets- North???

    I've seen most everything out there by now- but I own three of these guys and I dunno who made them! They are like the Fibes brackets in how they work- and they work really well. The hole spacing is VERY close to the 1216 Ludwig brackets. I actually used one of these for a cymbal L-arm on a...

    What to do with a SSB Gretsch COW dbl bass concert tom kit

    So, we bought a 12/13/14/15/16 (all concert toms), 16x16, 2 14x24 Gretsch kit a few months back. These were from the era of the GT (Gretsch Turd) mounts. You know the kind: huge hole in the shell. There is only one solution to that problem: I drilled bottom lugs on the 12, 13, and 14x16, had...

    What the f- well, you know the rest!

    I had gotten an Oyester Blue Pearl kit for the store last fall. A fellow forum member had called me to go look at it for him, and buy and ship it if it was a winner. Well, it had the dreaded added double tom mount. He passed, I bought it for the store. I remember driving back in to town with the...

    OT- AC help?

    My window unit's compressor won't kick on. I can hear it trying, but it won't start up. The fan blows fine. Is this possibly an easy fix, like a relay? It's an older Friedrich model that cools great, so I'd rather fix than replace. At least the one in the bedroom works! :)

    Score of the year, so far

    14x14, Champagne Sparkle under the black paint. Let me just say I got into this RIGHT. I'll probably take it to the Chicago Show to sell or trade. Needs some elbow grease!

    Adventures in dent removal...

    Got in a 20's 6x14 Leedy Black Elite last month. The shell had a noticable push-in behind the throwoff. This isn't something to be left alone in my opinion. Here's the dent: I decided it was high time to make a tool of sorts to make this kind of thing more controllable. We have a piece of...

    Santa was a few days late, but he hooked me up!

    A long time customer/friend called me earlier in the week. He said he wanted to come by the shop and talk to me about something. Turns out he wanted to sell most of his collection, and he wanted me to broker some sales. He gave me a list of what he had, and the prices he wanted. Then he gave me...
