    REVISED: Vintage 15" NOS heads (w/one 18").

    Bumpin' this back up. Want to move 'em! I've got a batch of these, but none in their original boxes. These bad boys are CLEAN NOS, not shop-worn NOS (except for the 18" Emperor). Perfect, as-new, beautiful condition except as noted. In all cases, they have never been on a drum. Shipping deal...

    Got (Slingy) Chocolate Milk?

    Please excuse me, all you Slingerland experts, but I would like your help. When, exactly, are the chocolate milk interior years? And could you please post some pics of how it could or should look? Is there a range of colorations? Many thanks from "Not Really a Slingerland Guy."

    Grommet repair for keyholed hi-hat.

    My beloved owned-from-new ('76-7) Zildjian New Beat 15's have an unfortunate keyhole on the top cymbal due to my youthful ignorance in their early years. They otherwise have been well cared for and sound and play like butter. The keyhole is not increasing, but I'm nervous, for it slips right...

    Rogers 2 - tom setup questions

    First of all, in the swivomatic script badge era, and particularly Holiday drums, did Rogers sell any factory- original twin-tom sets? The Cook book shows the two different units in the Parts Catalogue section: the '62-'64 and the probably more common '64-'73, but the only factory-appearing sets...

    Ludwig black and white badge question

    Cook's excellent Ludwig book has a Ludwig badge timeline, but when it gets to the Black and White parallelogram badge, it says, "Rocker Series and Snare drums from 1984 through the 1990s" (p. 177). Does this mean that B&W parallelogram badges are also on NON-Standard series Ludwig snares? Top...

    Edit: I have found out that they are the Elite series, so the Silver Sparkle is lacquer, not a wrap. Please, folks: anybody know the date range of manufacture of these center lug wonders? Thanks!

    Bosphorus label history

    Does anyone know at what age range Bosphorus used the white printing on their cymbals? I'm mostly referring to this scenario: Their standard logo is in black ink, but the designation of "Traditional" or "New Orleans" is in white. They don't do this now, and it seems they haven't for many years...

    Dirty to clean?

    I am renovating a late-50's Slingerland Special Student snare drum, in Blue/Silver Duco, but it is filthy. I tried naptha, but it would not make a dent in the old tape residue, assorted gunks, etc. What should I use to clean this that won't wreck the lovely though very beat up paint job? Thanks.
