    So close . . .

    . . . except for those 2 additional holes drilled into each of the drums. I'm really tempted to email the seller, but that never seems to go well. At least he claims the drums were that way when he bought them...

    Done with shell mounts!

    I had a chance over the last couple of months to finish up a project that had been on the shelf for a long time, and take on a new one as the result of a trade. The first was a bop kit using Acousticon shells. When I first put it together, I had an 18x14 bass drum, a 14x14 floor tom, and a 10x9...

    Acousticon Shells

    I've got three Acousticon 516 shells. They are: 9 x 10 11 x 13 16 x 16 They are drilled for lugs with 1.5" hole spacing, so the Slingerland copy lugs drop right in. The 10 and 13 are drilled for a bracket with 2" hole spacing, and the 16 is drilled for three brackets with 2" hole spacing. All...

    Ayotte Bass Drum - not mine

    Premier Double Tom Mount - Complete

    I have a Premier double tom mount - bass drum bracket, oval-shaped double tom holder and two tom brackets. The only thing missing are the machine screws for mounting the tom brackets to the drum. I'd like to sell it all together, but if there is interest in separating, let me know. $125 plus...

    Old Marching drums - prices added!

    These are all school drums of various ages. The blue and yellow drums: 2 16" Leedy, 1 16" Ludwig, a 15" Ludwig and a 14" Ludwig. The silver sparkle drums are both 15" Ludwigs - the drum with the Mach lugs is actually in pretty good shape with no extra holes; the other one has paint and tape -...

    Interesting Drum Event happening today

    This popped up on Facebook a couple of days ago. If anyone has a couple of minutes, could you take a look at the website and pretend that you're in the area and would like to go. See if you find anything lacking. http://www.tcdrumandguitarshow.com/

    Best modern match for Ludwig white interior paint?

    I know this has been talked about here before, but I could not get it to show up on a search. What is the best current paint match for white Ludwig interiors?

    Now I know what some of you were talking about . . .

    I remember when the forum software changed a wile ago that there was some grumbling about it, with some members becoming less active because of it. I thought, "What's the big deal? Sure, it looks a little different", but other than that, what's the problem? Until I tried to post some photos...

He is probably best know for writing the groundbreaking drum set book, 4 Way Coordination. He remained...

    Slightly O.T. - McNally Smith College of Music shuts its doors.

    McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul, MN closed down abruptly this week. It had been in existence since 1985, and the percussion faculty included Gordy Knudtson and Dave Stanoch. I always thought that it was similar in philosophy to Berklee - prepare students for jobs in music by...

    Unusual Slingerland configuration

    I'd like to hear the story behind this one: 8x12 and 14x14 double headed toms in WMP, with a single headed "Pop Outfit" 14x20 bass drum in WMP. I'm thinking about making an offer on it, but I'm not quite sure what I'd do with it. Remove the rippled chrome vinyl and make it double headed?

    Happy Traditional-Three-Tom-Sizes Day!

    This struck me as I was entering today's date into some rental contracts. I wanted to see if anyone else noticed - or is as drum obsessed as I am.
