    Roger's Superten Throw-off Question

    I recently acquired a 1970s 5x14" Roger's Superten snare drum. My question is about the strainer. I have attached a picture of it...is it an original? I have an early 70s Dyna-sonic snare but that strainer is very different. It has the Roger's name emblazoned on it like a banner. Any info is...

    Super-Sensitive Snare Wires

    I've already spoken with Puresound (and Gibraltar). Their snare set is 2" wide at the connecting point, mine is 1-1/8". The set I have on there right now does have the individually adjustable wires. I would be totally happy with a non-adjustable set... if I can find one. I've also included some...

    Super-Sensitive Snare Wires

    Hi Folks! I recently was fortunate enough to "snare" a Ludwig Super-Sensitive snare drum. According to the serial number it is a 1965 vintage. It looks like the six remaining snare wires are ancient. All the dual-strainer parts seem to be present. Do these have to be strung up with individual...

    Assembling an Excellent Student Snare Drum Kit

    I have been asked what would make an excellent snare drum outfit for a beginner student (school band.) I know all the big drum companies have kits with stands and bags. But what would make a great setup as the quality of parts and pieces might vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Here are...

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    Hey folks, thanks for all the advice you sent my way on this project! I thought you might want to hear the Haskell Harr with the 14" 24 Strand Fat Cat Dual Adjustable Snappy Snare Wires set.

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    Fantastic information all! We are going to proceed with a "Fat Cat" snare set on the Slingerland. We've already have a Fiberskyn Ambassador on the batter side. I should have mentioned before, this drum will likely be used as a concert snare and not for marching (it's kinda small.) Also, might...

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    Let me clarify my original question. What I should have asked is, "what snare set is recommended for this type of snare drum." Rather than how do I attach it to the strainer.

    Looking for a Snare Set Recommendation

    Hello, I recently bought a Slingerland Haskell W. Harr 10x14 parade snare drum. It's dated 1962. By the catalog I believe it to be the model 536F in Mahogany. I'd like to continue to use the Zoomatic strainer, as it is in great shape. However, I'd like to get away from the individual snare...

    Ludwig Rocker?

    Not all Black/White badged Ludwig drums were made in Asia! I have a made in USA 6.5x14" Rocker for sale right now. It is the original mirrored chrome wrap over wood! It's in beautiful shape and was recently tuned up with new heads and is ready to play. PM me for more info.

    Recommendations for Zoomatic Replacement

    Hi Folks, I have a 1962 Slingerland marching snare drum that I would like to update the original strainer on. Does anyone have a suggestion for a relatively easy replacement? It would be nice to change out the butt plate too... Thanks!
