Re: Rogers Big R, why the hate??

No hate here, but I never could get past the clunky style of the hardware. I'm a swivo lover from way back and never got used to the Big R memoriloc style no matter how ahead of their time they might...

Re: Which wrap for my new Ludwig Classic Maple?

I'd go for the sky blue pearl. i have the WMP. I like it, but not as much as the older WMP like the one on my old Rogers. The pattern seems smaller. Someone once said it looked like crushed aluminum...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Just bought two felt beaters, two fleece beaters, and a wooden beater for my Speed King pedals. I'm stocking up now since Ludwig isn't making the Speed King anymore and that means they probably won't...

Re: Drummer Bios and Autobios

There's a DVD about Stan Levey that is good. He's pretty much an unknown these days even though he was Dizzy Gillespie's drummer when he was 16 and self-taught. One of the few drummers who made the...

Re: Dw Lugs UGLY!!!!!

Personally, I'd kill for a set of 60s era Camcos. Preferably 12, 14, 20 with a matching snare.

What makes a beavertail lug?

My old Rogers swivo/Holiday drum set had beavertail lugs. I used to think that the term "beavertail" described only the Rogers lug of that time period. Recently I've been reading about Slingerland...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple - Bass drum depth?

Use the Ludwig configuration guide, fill out the features you want and it automatically calculates the list price. You can figure on paying around 62-65% of list at a good dealer.

Re: $800 for Rogers Londoner. Is it worth it?

I was at the right place at the right time. It was the top of the market and the kit was literally flawless. Kept in cases since I got them in the early 70s, cleaned often enough to have no pitting...

Re: $800 for Rogers Londoner. Is it worth it?

Glad to have saved you the trip. The kit was quite flawed. The CL ad was only two days old, so they went fast. I'd never been to this pawn shop before and they had about four or five kits for sale....

So here’s what happened.

The advertisement for the kit was on Craig’s List for $800.00. When I got to the pawn shop the price in the tag was $1495.00. The shells are Dayton’s and the snare is a...
