    The other thing with powder coating is the mass it adds. Drum hardware is designed to fit inside other bits of drum hardware, often with fine tolerances. You add OD mass to this with powder coating,...

    I love a good cover! I hate when I find out, usually YEARS later, that a song I grew up loving is actually a cover song. I literally found only a few days ago that 'Please Mr Postman', that I grew up...

    That's a great drum. If memory serves me right, they were the same as the MHX, in as far as 4ply/5mm shells with 4ply/5mm rings, but the Ltd Ed Classics had mahogany rings rather than maple that the...

    Been a bone of contention on this forum ever since it was discontinued. For those that bought into it it's a PITA because, as you say, you can't get any more to add to your set up, or replacements....

    For the OP, here's the 1996 snare drums catalogue which features the drum. The only thing I can't remember was the shell thickness. I know it's single-piece maple shell with two solid rings (glued...

    I'm sure it would survive life on the road, as any other working musical instrument. But I know I'd never have gigged it, nor likely played it at all had I bought it. All academic really, I was 16 at...

    Do you still have the original head? It was a fiberskyn style head with the 50th anniversary logo printed on it. Would certainly add to it's value for a collector.

    Lovely drums those - I remember...

    Apart from the badge and air vent location, it looks the same as my 4214D snare. Except that's chrome-over-brass, and circa 1977-80 (I think)

    Absolutely. It walks all over every other mounting system (for these types of drum) there is, including L-arm. It's just so unobtrusive, minimalistic and simple. I've long said if I was to have a set...

    Not necessarily. I've seen wraps taped the full way round with thin tape that holds tight without leaving gaps. Equally though, it could be adhesive. Only one way to find out for sure...

    Rocket toms are great but can be a total pain to position. Roto toms look pretty clumsy/unattractive, but are very handy and more flexible/adaptable than rocket toms. Both sound great live - I was...

    At this time, it doesn't get played. At some point I'll play it again, but with it's age and rarity, it'll never be a main snare again. So for the foreseeable future it's a keepsake - I suspect it...

    I didn't know stainless steel (generally) wasn't magnetic. Can't say I've ever thought to put a magnet to it. The only thing I think I've put a magnet to is one of my snares as I always thought it...
  20. So what should I do about my Custom Classic?

    It means "a stupid person". Origin: mid 16th century English: variant of "pillicock" meaning "*****" (the correct anatomic term for the phallus), the early sense of 'pillock' in Northern English
