Re: Tips on drum rooms?

If you can acquire some office cubby panels, get them. I learned to make good use of these. You can move them about, as necessary. Experiment. I got a bunch when some place went out of business and...

Re: What's the Appeal of Vintage Drums? You May Be Surprised.

I play a set of 40 year old Slingerlands. I bought them for nostalgic reasons (they were the same kit I bought new and played some 40 years ago), familiarity, and they do sound good. I had no...

Re: cleaning Gold plated lugs and rims

Gold is tough to maintain. It's a thin line between cleaning-polishing it and taking that thin coating of gold off the base metal. I wish I could help you more. I like the look of gold plate but I...

Re: ***Sign the DW Boycott List***

I think the boycott is misdirected and should refer to the drum shop that handles (or rather mishandled) the original sale. DW doesn't normally deal directly with retail customers for a good reason:...

Re: My DW saga just keeps going and going...

Flaking chrome on grommet would bother me, yes.
Out of round hoops freak me.
This stuff could be easily dealt with though.
I'm still not sure why it hasn't been cleaned up and everyone made happy....

Re: My DW saga just keeps going and going...

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say, "I think they will take care of all of it!" I've never owned a DW kit. I've thought about it though.... and I'm watching. I betcha they make you very happy in...

Re: ludwig owners--rail consolette vs. center post? vibraband vs. old tom mount?

A friend of mine bought new Luddies with the consolette. They've been troublesome with lots of sudden slipping. He's now gone to using a dedicated Tom stand. Just another experience...

Re: my new/old Slingys, all cleaned up!!!!

To be clear, they are not the same shells I owned, but the same model kit, same era, sizes, same wrap.... minus the 40 years of yellowing.... Still, very cool for me.
