    Thanks for the acknowledgement Jazzhead. I hope it fits the bill! I haven't been on the forum for a while, so it's nice to know I still have friends here. G'day all, greetings from Sunny Sydney!

    That is a beautiful kit, no doubt about it.

    I just HAD to buy this...

    Retro, after soaking in the vinegar overnight I cover the rods with baking soda, which neutralises the acid in the vinegar and stops it going further. Then I clean it off with a toothbrush. Works great!

    Probably not. These makers of fine vinegars are very specific... :laughing5:

    I just HAD to buy this...

    I think we've all used the vinegar/baking soda trick for cleaning tension rods and washers and things at some time or other, but could there be a better-named vinegar on the market? I spotted this in an Asian supermarket (I was looking for something interesting for dinner) and just couldn't...

    Halloween Find 2

    Baz, if you're willing to send all the way over here to Oz it might be worth checking out Kentville Drums site. Steele makes kangaroo hide heads, any size you want, pre-international, whatever. He's also a member here and is always willing to have a chat. Just a...

    Bass drum ID help...

    Thanks Zickos. Yeah, marching drum for sure, I was also thinking 20s or 30s. 26" hoops, not sure about the shell depth, possibly about 9 or 10". I didn't actually get to measure it properly or take off the heads to have a peek inside, so there may be more info to be found in there. But before...

    Bass drum ID help...

    A fiddle player friend of mine has had this drum for many years. I have no idea what it is, but I told him I would try to find out. There are no markings or badge on it, and the tension rods and claws are all mismatched. There's also only one clip-on spur, which could be anything. I figure...

    Craigslist strange drum

    That top hoop looks like a snare bottom hoop to me - there are snare gates on it. Buy the dam thing so we can check it out properly! :happy11:

    Slingerland BD Decal

    Barrhaven Drumguy on Ebay. I've bought a couple from him and they're very good. I believe he has the 60s one you mentioned, Slingyfan. I also think he's a member here.

    Show me your vintage MIJ Stencil

    A long term resto project - I think this is non-Star Hoshino, but there's a definite Star-ishness coming through. There is no badge, but a pennant-shaped glue stain where it was. Have not been able to properly id this drum. Just the BD for the moment...

    Japanese lugs?

    I agree, looks like Star to me.

    The Vintage Find of a Lifetime....or maybe not.

    That wallpaper - why do I keep thinking of Laugh-In? Great story though, your mate Don sounds like a real hoot!
