Re: Idea for forum

The vBulletin software that Bernhard is using has that as an option, but it is not part of the software.

Re: Roto Tom Mounting

Just so I understand, you have the rotos currently on the black channel track that you normally see rotos mounted on?

I know most of the roto tom kits have a track system using Gibralter Clamps...

Re: Anyone have first hand knowledge of Ludwig Steel Drums?

Yes, I sold my MINT 5 piece set last year for $900.

This is a bigger set-up, but I would say still over priced. The main thing is the weight of
these drums. If you plan on doing a lot of moving...

Re: Vistalite paint removal?

The Novus products will bring back the shine. I have seen sanded vistalites restored.

I also know people that have used goo gone with no adverse affect.

Re: Vistalite paint removal?

Re: Vistalite paint removal?

First thing to do is get goo gone and a few light duty paint strippers and test a few spots near the edges.

Stay away from any heat source!

After you find the best method then you will need...

Re: vintage drum out of round

I have heard of this type of problem being fixed. It did involve a professional restorer. If I remember correctly they would take the internal rienforcement rings off the drum. (Also taking off the...

Re: Slingerland Brass Piccolo

That is a Muisc Yo Snare Drum. Imported to the USA.

Re: Vintage Gear... Canora?
