Identifying Colt Manufactured Drums
Posted 13 June 2004 - 11:40 PM
I saw some reference to the placement of the lettering on some part of the face plate or back plate....can someone who knows help me out here?
Also, what should the finish of the rotor be, blued or nickled, on these drums.

Here's the link to the posting you talked about. Look at Murray's responses, he's got it down. Tracy Hills book has some pictures mixed around. I've since recieved a copy of Doug Richardsons drum book and it is very straight forward and to the point.

The stick mag book is equally interesting to.
I beleive Doug is away in Belize at the moment but I know he will return soon.
Best of luck. Sounds like you have some nice drums there.
