For what it's worth, ER, I designed and made E,L and P's stainless steel drum kit which was then shipped to Germany to be engraved.
PS. Going from memory it was about 1975.
For what ever it's worth, Glynsky, Carl Palmer's drum set was considered the largest of all at that time.ER
From designer and manufacturer of drum kit for E,L and P, to being a grease monkey says it all.
Probably, ER, why they came to me!
I was fascinated by this stainless steel drum kit so I googled it and on YouTube found Carl Palmer talking about it and film. No mention of Glynsky but is that a colloid mill under one of the drums?
That was in fact a trick question as Glynsky's drums do not need a colloid mill due to the efficiency of the emulsifier.
I am very glad to have initiated this ... uhm ... debate with just one song, a great one never the less, and maybe even EL&P's best.Glynsky and big drums, why does that sound like an immediate, logical, tight connection ...ER
Smiles you hero! It would never have occurred to me to youtube or google it. Granted no mention of Glynsky Enterprises Ltd, but I (and now you too) know the truth.They were never half inch thick (12mm) as some of the time addled suggestions say, but it is absolutely true that they asked for the price difference in 1/8th (3mm) and 1/4 (6mm) and 'twas I who told them no price change!Truth was, we priced it at 4x what we estimated at worst it COULD cost as we expected 'trouble' (!) - which never happened! I was wrong about one thing though - we made a 1/8 and 1/4 thick medium snare as a test piece. I, as a mediocre drummer at the time, thought the sound of the 1/8 better but - the customer is always right!!!Thanks for the tip Smiles - I have archived all the info just for fun.
Thank you Glynsky. Do I hear Bonnie Tyler singing out for me ?
