    MIJ Cymbal L-Arm

    Yep, I need a 9mm arm with telescoping top section and tilter. No mount needed. Good condition and not too chewed up. Pearl (or pearl stencil) preferred. Holler if you have such a critter. Thanks. Dave

    Tama Classic Flat Base Hi Hat Stand

    Low mileage with some scuffs on the footboard. I love the feel and action but it has to sit on a perfectly level surface which makes it impractical for me to gig with. Seriously you can't have one leg off the drum rug or it's wobbleville. Just want to be upfront so you know what you're getting...

    My double strokes suck.

    They are weak, sloppy, and tentative at best. Background: Lessons off and on age 7-14. Thought I knew enough to move on without further instruction (ha!). I'm 60 now and doing singles for darn near everything is stupid and a waste of energy. Please suggest a definitive book to get me back on...

    Ludwig early (first?) Hercules snare stand

    A buddy of mine found this nifty puppy with angle adjustment via one basket arm and threaded basket clamp adjustment right on tube. I see it in the 1964 catalog as "new" but the next available catalog on drumarchive is '67 and it's way gone. Anyone know how long they offered it?

    80s Ludwig Classic Chicago 6 Ply. 9x13, two 16x16s. Black Cortex

    I've tried to note all flaws but feel free to request more pics of anything specific. Happy to oblige. Open to offers since I'm kinda spitballing here. 16x16 #1 No hoops or legs. Wrap and chrome are excellent with some negligable pitting on the mounts. One 1/2" long wrap gouge as pictured...

    Memory Lock for Vintage Ludwig Tom Mounts?

    The rail consolette has its own issues but one would think there's at least something to put on the L-arm to keep the tom in position. Am I hunting bigfoot?

    MIJ Stewart Snare w/ Original Box

    Very nice condition drum with replacement snare side head and Taiwan wires. Edge all factory and clean. Minor scuffing and pitting. Box top is a bit craggy and one flap is gone. Looking for $125 plus shipping OBO. I wondered as a youngster why Remo printed "DRUM HEAD ONLY" on their stencil kit...

    Celluloid wrap installation info please

    I ordered a sheet from China to wrap a MIJ floor tom. Mostly a fun project but I would still like it to look nice. I know it's prone to shrinkage and UV/heat warping. - Is tape an absolute no no? - Would spray adhesive do the job ok? Scotch Super 77 or similar. Or should I just go with a...

    SOLD. And wife gets a new range. Ludwig Transition Badge Project

    Did I mention PROJECT? They've been staring me down for 3 years since I rescued them and I just can't get past the disassembly and chrome cleanup on the 16. Too many other irons in the fire. 22, 16, 13. All have been subjected to metalflake model paint and at a later date covered with a...

    2 Vintage 15ish" Chinese Cymbals

    Your choice of totally gnarly patina or lovingly buffed by an unknown gentleman stick slinger in the distant past. Both 15" but as they are not exactly circular, expect some variance. No maker's mark visible. Nice fine lathing on both. Buffy here has holes for 8 rivets and weighs in at 894g...

    SOLD, as in cannibalized. 70s 3 ply Slingy project kit.

    12,13,16,22. 12 is a bit later with clear coat interior and 6 digit SN. Others are choco milk with 417xx SNs. These have been recovered ages ago but it looks as if care was taken not to booger up the mahogany when the old wrap was removed. All edges are sweet. 12 is missing muffler knob. 13...

    Ed Thigpen surprise score

    So I’m looking for an old trap case to store my overflowing parts (hardware heavy, wheels good!) and I see this for sale in Phoenix. I’m thinking why the hell is Ed’s stuff in Arizona? He moved to Denmark in the 70s. Seller got it from someone who bought it at Jerome Teasley’s (Jr Walker...

    FOUND. 12x8 MIJ tom shell. Thin with re-rings.

    Putting together a cheap azz rat-rod jelly bean kit so anything with an interesting wrap. Preferably drilled for L-arm mount but diamond plate is OK. No thick luan shells. I have 60s Pearl hardware for it but if you have a complete tom that might work. Holler if you have anything. Thanks. Dave
