I think your best bet would be to patiently watch eBay. Find a drum that's pretty beat up, aside from the throw. Also check your local Craigslist. I'm sure there are specific dealers for this kind of stuff. You may find them on eBay as well. Just send some sellers your request (you should be able to tell from their profile if it's their business or just a personal sale), and they may be able to locate the part for you.

It's very similar to how my dad runs his business. He sells rare and out of print collectible gun related books. He deals worldwide, and sells a lot of things on eBay. Most of his sales are special requests that he has to track down through his personal sources.

Do a search on Jollity Drum Farm. The guy there specializes in vintage Rogers drums and parts. He can probably help. I've purchased stuff from him in the past and always found him to be a straight shooter regarding condition of parts and pricing.

Ya man, specific stuff like that can cost a fair amount. However, think of it as an investment. If you really love this drum, and want to make it special (and very drool worthy), you will put whatever it takes into it. Even if what you have isn't completely original, you will have a very nice piece of gear in the end that you will be happy to play on and show off.

I was looking for VU meters on eBay yesterday. I want to build a couple things this year that could use a nice VU. Basic and modern ones are fairly cheap (less than $10). The current prices (and I expect them to rise before the end of the auction) on vintage meters pulled from old equipment was close to $30 for the cheapest (that's a lot when you are considering the cost of other parts in the project). I want my DiY gear to be very drool worthy so I'm going to invest in quality parts, even it if means I have to save up and build things over a few months (more than likely will be the case).

100-150.00 is what you will pay, any given day. You can replace your Dynasonic Throwoff with a later version....... but there wont be much difference in the price. What you have is called the Clockface, Chrome background version. To drill your drum and replace that with an aftermarket will reduce the value of your Seven Line Dynasonic by about 300.00

Just the knob?? Hmm you may be able to use a generic one, or just buy that specific one from a dealer. My favorite local drum shop carries tons of random parts like that which is why I love going in there for those purposes.

Now I am not 100% sure......but . I think you can take your dampener apart........... and use that for the tensioning shaft on the Dynasonic Throwoff. A dampener would cost you about 35.00. But you wont get that small knob. Clockface seems to loose that part more than anything. I have seen more of those like that than the elongated Swivomatic.
