    I need help dating this 20" Old A

    Picked this up over the weekend and the guy I bought it from is in his late 60's and he claimed that this cymbal was from his Dad's first drum set. I asked him how old he thought is was and he said, "I think it is from the 40's" I looked on Zenstat's site but could not find this exact one but...

    Zildjian 20" A Take Five Reissue Ride Cymbal - Memphis Drum Shop Looks like an interesting deal. I personally do not like the look of the hammering but I would need to hear some sound files before I felt the need to get one.

    Received a Free Drum from a Co-Worker

    Came into work Monday and one of my yard sale addicted co-workers walks into my office and sits down a pile of drum parts. He was at a yard sale this weekend and saw this on the table and asked the guy about it and his response was, "I can't even give this thing away!!" So my co-worker, being...

    Received my limited edition INDe brass snare today! Josh is trying a little something new by making a limited run of some polished lacquered brass snare drums. The shell and rims are brass and the hardware is all brass plated. Sounds absolutely phenomenal and looks magnificent!

    Reverb Sale Gone Bad - Seeking Opinions

    I had picked up a Blacrolite on Craigslist a month and a half ago. Pristine condition case queen, stock heads and wires all in great condition. Guy said his son rarely played it and was ready to get rid of it after 20 years. This was one of the rare drums I get for a good price that I didn't...

    Ludwig Casting Identification

    Saw this question pop up again on Facebook and thought I would renew my search for answers! I'm trying to figure out what KDC stands for from 60's and early 70'd Ludwig die cast parts. I figured out that CWM stand for Chicago White Metal. Here is their website: I cannot...

    TAMA HC52F Classic Stand Upgrade

    Here's my fix for the common complaint on these stands. The soft rubber sleeve that they include on these stands will not hold up well over time. All I did was swap out the cupped washer and rubber sleeve with a 5/16" fender washer and a Gibraltar SC-19B short flanged cymbal sleeve. It is...
