    Tension Rod Issue on Snare

    just spoke to the rep. about it. he's not happy about it and has placed an escalated order to replace this one. if only their build quality was as good as their customer service...

    Tension Rod Issue on Snare

    yeah- it doesn't alter the sound at all, but aesthetically it just looks wrong. I was able to adjust it some so the splay occurs on lugs that aren't front and center. I am just a bit confused as to why this is an issue for them though.

    Tension Rod Issue on Snare

    yup- it's the same exact issue. something must be off measurement wise. some of the hoop holes are centered over the lugs and some are not.

    Pick the better deal

    I'd go with the Gretsch. I just got a snare in that same finish and it's awesome! edit- I take that back after reading through your post...

    Tension Rod Issue on Snare

    I've been making adjustments, but when I do it just throws off the other rods. I'll keep at it to see if I can straighten them all out...

    Tension Rod Issue on Snare

    after a long wait the new drum has finally arrived. these pictures were taken immediately after unboxing: it's pretty disappointing to be sent a replacement snare only to have the new snare have the same issue as the old one. it's certainly not as bad, but it's crazy to me that this could...

    Buyer Asking for 'Receipt of Purchase'

    the drum was delivered. sounds like his post master was reaching out to him for something else...

    Buyer Asking for 'Receipt of Purchase'

    that was honestly my initial concern... I guess we'll see what happens here.

    Buyer Asking for 'Receipt of Purchase'

    I thought maybe that was the case. I've just never encountered this before when shipping or receiving items.

    Buyer Asking for 'Receipt of Purchase'

    that certainly seems logical, but he said he's confused as well since it was shipped UPS. I asked how the post master contacted him and he said his phone number. I just don't understand any of it.

    Buyer Asking for 'Receipt of Purchase'

    yeah- everything was done through Reverb and I provided him a screenshot of the current info.

    Buyer Asking for 'Receipt of Purchase'

    this is new for me. I sold a bass drum on Reverb and shipped it out with UPS the other day. according to tracking it is currently out for delivery. I just received a message from the buyer saying his post officer never received my receipt of purchase. I told him I was confused as I shipped it...

    PDP mismatched from factory?

    at the start of the pandemic someone was selling the rack and floor tom together, basically brand new- I forget if it was an auction or buy it now, but they sold for just over $200 shipped. I kicked myself for not jumping on them, but I couldn't really justify taking them in. not saying these...

    Ludwig Acrolites......Reverse Economics?

    certainly not on ebay, reverb, and sites like those, but locally- FB marketplace, craigslist, they can still pop up.

    Ludwig Acrolites......Reverse Economics?

    I think the appeal of the Acrolite is that they can be had for cheap and I think they sound great. for the $70 I paid it's a bargain.

    My New Slingerlands

    not sure what you plan on doing with the old wrap itself, but if there's enough you should rewrap a snare! I think that could be cool!

    Ludwig Acrolites......Reverse Economics?

    this topic came up only a few months ago and it seems like they have increased in price since then. finding Acrolites locally seems to be the only way to get the best deal. I've recently bought one for $70 and a Black Galaxy one for $85. for awhile the 60's Keystone ones were selling for $200+...
