Re: Worthy Project? - Big Beat Set?

Looks like a maple cortex 6-ply kit from about 1980. Are the spurs on the same side as the badge on the kick drum?
I believe the badge was moved from the reso side to the batter side when modular...

Re: Why do people dent your heads ?

People get carried away. I've certainly dented my own ambassador heads before. Since using coated ambassador X heads I haven't dented any. If you like the sound of single-ply heads with durability...

Re: Ludwig snare input please

The badge looks to be low on the shell, but the grommet appears to be original. I've had a blue cortex tom before, 6 ply like your snare.
Here are more blue cortex drums:

Re: TAMA Artstar ES - Japan / Taiwan

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what happened to the official Tama forum? I used to visit there but can't find it now.

Re: FOR SALE: 1970s Ludwig 6.5x14 LM402 Supraphonic Snare drum in *amazing* condition

She's a beaut. My late 70s Supra had some pitting. It's crazy how some of them don't have pitting like yours. Apparently, the owner(s) took care of it. Maybe it came from an arid climate too. ...

Re: Calling all 70's Ludwig Shell Experts

The shells look like 6 ply Ludwigs to me. I'd guess early 80s.
The claws look like aftermarkets.

Re: Where can I get a Spring for this Old Tama Pedal

Might be a strange question, but are you in Nashville? There was a guy who had the same issue with a Tama pedal at the Cobra bar last week.

Re: Where can I get a Spring for this Old Tama Pedal

It appears that your pedal needs a tensioner as well.

Re: Painting Ludwig bass drum hoops

To answer your questions-
Based on what I've seen, repainting the hoops doesn't seem to devalue drums, therefore, it's reasonable to believe that repainting them wouldn't really increase their...

Re: Questions about a Ludwig Black/White badge Copper Snare

Reverb has a write-up on it. It says it's from the 2000's.
There's also a 5" & 6.5"brass version of the drum and the drum in the reverb pic looks like brass to me. I think the drummer for Dr Dog...

Re: Ludwig Atlas tom mount and vintage 3 ply Sligerland shells

I've used the atlas mounts on 13" and 14" 3-ply Ludwig toms with no signs of stress/deformation over a 2-year period. I would assume that the psi on the shell would be similar to or even less than...

Re: Oyster black pearl from Walopus looks GREAT!

Looks great. It kinda looks aged, which looks more authentic.

Re: Value of Date Stamp 1969 Acrolite

I recently sold an early 70s acrolite in similar shape for $200. It was sold within 2 hours of being listed. I would expect your acro would sell for more than mine.

if legit that's a steal, although I don't know what 'losing errors' are.

Re: Another Ludwig Date Question

That sounds like a great kit with some history. If I had to guess I'd say early 70s. Ludwig used the pointy badge for most of the 70s and Ludcote was first used in the early 70s, I believe.

Re: Any opinions

I didn't understand the last part.
My opinion might depend on if I had some spare bowling ball wrap to cover the doweled holes.
You might post some pics of the tom in question to get better...

Re: Ludwig 6:5 hammered bronze

If I understand what you're saying it's possible that the hoop is slightly oversized, or the shell is slightly undersized. The Ludwig shells (and likely hoops too) have varied in diameter slightly...
