Re: Bearing Edge Odyssey Starts Now

Will,
I commend you for your circumspection on this process, but I have found that it really is pretty basic if you have the right equipment, and it sounds like you do.

Re: Pricing Help - 1970 Ludwig OBP

Thanks. I have a lo-ball offer of $1250 on CL. I saw another set like mine in the SF Bay Area for $1850 without the issues mine have, presumably. I will stick near $1500 for a while.

Re: Band Zildjian Cymbals?

V,
I was thinking along the same lines. I wonder if they made some small-ish cymbals for kids or something.

Thanks for the reply.

Band Zildjian Cymbals?

I just bought a drum set that came with a boatload of cymbals. The 13” hi hats are interesting. They are both heavy, and appear quite old. One cymbal is definitely heavier than the other, though....

Re: Unconventional Drum Set

Thanks, everyone. It was fun to do.

The bass drum is, in fact, just a pretensioned head on a rim, with the ability to tune it tighter. It has an integrated plastic ring that holds a circular...

It’s not a rip-off!

It’s a tribute!

Poetman,
Yes and no. I have a 70’s Ludwig Atlas throne, the kind with swivel feet and each leg is the same. It has a cheap foam pad under vinyl for the business end of the seat. Not in any...

Re: What Ludwig Kit Do I Have?

Hello and welcome to VDF.

Your set looks like a Downbeat, except with a 22” bass drum instead of the 20”. Ludwig, and many retailers, permitted size substitutions by the customer.

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

I have repainted the gray ones. They are now black and white, with a blue stripe on one. I think they look much better.

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Thanks! I have had more than one person think that the gray ones are green, so I am going to repaint them black and white instead of gray and off-white, like I should have from the get-go.

Is your question regarding the entire process of making the hardware spiffy and shiny, or is about the mechanics of silky smooth tuning?

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Great job on those!! Now it's time to enjoy them...How do they sound?
