    Vintage Rogers possible buy

    Hello! Long time listener, first time caller! My wife sent me a picture from an estate sale listing. I have a chance to go look early.

    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...
