    Gold DW lugs, claws, and mounts

    DW drum parts. Gold plated. From 2018 drum. I swapped them for chrome, so the mounting screws and chrome t-rods had to be reused on my kit. I do not know what the gold items go for, so I set it ballpark-ish what the chrome parts cost me. I am open to offers Bass drum lugs. $10 per lug. 16...

    How resilient is Trick’s powder coat on bass drum riser?(shipping damage question)

    Recently I received a Trick bass drum lift. Unfortunately it did not fare so well in the hands of UPS and the “ears” got tweaked. It seems as if the best way to get it all back “on plane” is to put it in a hydraulic press and put the pressure to it. My question/concern is this: when flexing...

    Red-orange burst mismatch between 2 toms... any way to fix?

    I have a random question... Back in ‘04, during the online kit builder craze, I had a Keller shelled / ego lugged kit built. The drums are a nice red/orange burst, but you can tell the 14” Tom was done separate from the others as the red is just a touch deeper. The finish was alcohol soluble...

    Head suggestion- 2x 12’s turned into concert toms, how to make sound different?

    Anyone have 2x toms on their kit the same size? How do you make them sound different, but appropriate relative to each other? Long story short... I got a deal on 2x pdp concept maple shells, but they’re both 12” dia x 9” deep. I have repurposed them into concert toms. In the interim I have a...

    3x dw collector maple orphan shells: 13x10, 12x9, 10x8 (2x ‘01, 1x ‘03 build dates)

    Selling 3x dw orphans Ive bought through the years with the intent to rewrap. All maple, all early 2000s date. No major issues, although I never over-studied the edges as they were to be recut with the rewrap. WMP is factory wrap, not too bad. Some whiteness marks / cuts from lugs into wrap...

    New Remo PS4 coating flaking off?

    I was trying to get a 15" snare dialed in, so I decide to try my old trick of putting a coated PS4 on it. My last one is at 4 years old and counting, so I was shocked when the new one started showing Mylar after just 10 minutes! Has anyone else had problems like this recently? Usually I use...

    DW Bearing Edge Issue

    So after waiting about six months for a DW Collector's Series floor tom to match my existing kit, it arrived last month. As you would expect, the drum looked and sounded great. That is until today... in my usual "cannot leave well enough alone" fashion, I pulled the factory heads to do some...

    Ebay cymbal shipping disaster...

    You can now officially add me to the long list of recipients of damaged cymbals due to packing practices! Just in case the seller is a member, I will speak in vague generalities. However, I received a large diameter, extremely heavy cymbal today in a super thin box. I arrived home and saw the...
