    Snare Hardware Gurus - Need Help ID'ing Neil Peart's Slingerland Snare

    Hello all! I got the itch to play again after about 15 years off. I was going to make my first thread on here about how awful of a snare my Mapex Tomahawk is (the snare beds are grossly mis-aligned compared to the lug holes!) but I won't. I lurked on here for a while, searching for a good cheap...

    Vintage Mount Identification

    Hi All Got this tom mount a few weeks ago. I think its an early 70s Slingerland mount, but it doesn't fit any of the 70s Slingerland toms I have. It came as a throw in with a slingerland kit and some other random parts. Most of the time when I see these they have 1 arm, not two and this only...

    Help me fund a Jenkins Martin kit Tom Sale I bought these last year off of Ulysses Owens Jr. on reverb (see screenshot) who got them from Steve Maxwell Drums in NYC. They sound so so so good.

    Late 50’s SS Radioking 14x5.5 needs a facelift

    Just got this today. The wrap is in terrible shape from what I’m guessing is sunburn or being too close to a heater or similar for long periods of time. The shell is solid and has no extra holes and looks pretty clean and modern heads spin freely even with the current wrap on. I’m ditching...

    Slingerland COB TDR “Buddy Rich” model

    I acquired my 3rd TDR since they are fantastic. It’s a brass shell with 3 vent holes and the TDR throw. Question: Did they make them with and without a muffler? My other 2 have mufflers and both date to around 1979-1981. The 3rd one I got doesn’t have any holes for a muffler and the badge...

    Beautiful condition! It seems like the 6.5 is hard to come by. This drum sounds huge and has a great warmth to it. Still has mostly original hardware. No issues tuning, holding its pitch, or keeping tension on the snare wires. There are a few spots worth noting (all are pictured) that the drum...
