Re: Vintage or New Age?


Yep and doodie. You are dead right. Make sure you either beg, borrow or steal to get an original set of Vistalites.
That investment will pay tenfold.
Sweaty armpit dollars pay back devalued ones.
You are lucky. We never see these kits.

It was about the snare drum two messages ago when you told me about the Radio King snare you were fixing.
Get the snare drum you are using now and tighten the thin snare side as normal....evenly of course. Now, those two lugs either side of the snare wire give an extra turn and a half. There is four total (two each end)
Turn the drum over and make sure the batter head is reasonably tight and even.
Tighten your snare strainer properly and whammo. It'll be the crispest snare sound you've heard in a while I bet.
I bet you don't hardly bother with fixing the RK

Re: Vintage or New Age?


Hey Butter did you ever play a Vintage Kit? the truth is face it Vintage kits are older than you, I
have a Slingerland kit that I bought in 1972 Brand New my teacher ordered it straight from the Slingerland factory 3 of those drums were the same model that Buddy Rich used and 2 of them were the same Models that Gene Krupa used,as a guy from Sam Ash and Guitar Center said your set sounds different than any set I have in the store and They have every brand you can name.Vintage is different don't KNOCK IT UNTIL YOU'VE TRIED IT

Re: Vintage or New Age?


was i knocking vintage???

i have played vintage kits before, actually 4 of them (not very many, but still ive played them).

i do really like their sound, but since i am primarily a rock drummer, i prefer modern kits over vintage.
like i said, i would love to have a vintage kit. i have started playing some jazz lately (on your advice), and a vintage kit would be better for that than what i have, obviously. anything would be better than what i have my drums are terrible.

Re: Vintage or New Age?


Butter I'm just kidding with you but I am glad you took my advice. Here's some advice from one of the most famous drummers of all time GENE KRUPA he said

"You may not like everything out there but you have to know it"
I followed that advice in the 70's that's why I say open your mind up and learn more
and told you to learn JAZZ
