Re: Maybe off-topic - mufflers on modern drum?

Just get the M1 or maybe the bigger version (good...

Slingerland WMP pricing question

I was wondering what a Slingerland WMP set might be worth. It's a 1971 and in Buddy sizes (24-13-16). It's not (I think??) a true Buddy Rich set as it doesn't have the second floor tom and it has...

Re: Did this Ludwig snare system actually work?

Really? No one here can tell me anything about this Ludwig snare system? I'm wondering if it worked as advertised or if it was a failed experiment. I'm sure Mike Curotto and some others have at...

Re: Evans Calftone heads

+1 on the UV1 heads. They are great heads and sound wonderful on my 12" & 15" toms.

My only beef that I have is that my snare has traditional wood hoops with claws and while the head seats on the...

Hey guys,

I know Ludwig developed several types of strainers through the years, but I was wondering if any of you have this drum and if the snare system works as advertised. I know nothing about...

What is a good price for this vintage Rogers set??

Ok, this has been on the Austin CL forever now with no takers. It's not mine and I don't know the seller.

Re: Ludwig flat based snare stand question

Thanks Ludwig-dude. I guess mine is correct. It just seems like it would work better if it had a small spring. Maybe I'll try one out anyway.

Re: Steve Maxwell Rail Mount

Mine (top and bottom) are the same size on my Super Classic. Really wouldn't make sense to use two different sized bolts and nuts.

Re: Ludwig Internal Muffler Rattle!!!

Easy fix. Take the whole thing apart. Take the arm(connected to the muffler) to Lowes and pick up some rubber O-rings. They should be small enough to fit snug around the rivet, but big enough that...
