    Slingerland Bass drum rods?

    I have a few of these (6) bass drum tension rods that I found in my closet... I tried to figure out what they were, and the best I could come up with is that they are vintage Slingerland Radio King rods. Does anyone know for sure what they might be? I saw a few on ebay that said they were either...

    Rogers swan leg snare stand...Need some help.

    I came across this Rogers swan leg snare stand a few weeks ago. My question for any Rogers players out there is: What Is It? I know it's a 1960's swan leg stand, but that's all I know. Could be a Giant, Swivomatic, Stay Tite or something like that. Any help would be appreciated, as I don't want...

    Vintage Pearl oval badge drum set

    I will start this post by stating that I know nothing about vintage Pearl drums...I hope someone here does. I picked up a five piece Pearl set from a friend who was cleaning out his deceased father's garage, and came across these under some old blankets. The only thing I know about them is that...

    Sabian SR2 Refurbished Cymbals

    I'm seriously thinking about purchasing one of these Sabian SR2 cymbals. Although they look like crap and the SR2 logo is hideous, they seem to be a great deal on the Sabian line. Has anyone ever bought one of these? Are they worth the price? Seems it's kind of pot luck as to which line they...

    Drum Head Dents

    A while back I saw a posting from a member that described how to remove dents from drum heads using an iron. I neglected rule #23 of drumming: Never let a drunk woman play your drums at 3:00 A.M. The posting said something about using an iron and a damp towel, but I don't remember the technique...

    18" Ludwig floor tom wrap crack

    I recently acquired a Ludwig 18" x 16" white cortex, pointy B/O badge floor tom... Unfortunately, it has a few horizontal cracks in the wrap. My question is: Is there any way to repair the cracks using a filler type product? Maybe wood filler? I would hate to rip off the otherwise scratch free...

    Best Alternative to Delmar Wrap

    I have a few inexpensive drum sets I'd like to re-wrap, and can't afford the Delmar prices. What is the best alternative? I see the ebay wraps, and I'm not too sure of their thickness. Sparkle Brite seems to be limited on the colors they have. Does someone have any experience with other...

    My Ludwig restore project

    I've been picking up some older 70's - 80's Ludwig shells here and there along with the hardware. Pictures are of toms alone, working on the bass drum as we speak... Chose to use Polyurethane instead of lacquer finish. The toms sound great, but trying to figure out which heads to use.

    Zildjian Trans Stamp ID

    I recently purchased some 14" Zildjian hi hats that were described as "Vintage Zildjian Hi Hats". When I received them, I immediately noticed that the bottom hat was a 70's hollow logo quick beat (Four drilled holes). Thinking the top was also a quick beat, I tried to put it on my hi hat clutch...
