Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

HA! Not quite... I did work for one of the largest energy companies for almost 30-years (about 36 if you count the overtime) in Operations at one of their petroleum refineries. About half that time...

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

Grease offers many advantages over...

Re: Anyone still planning on going to the Chicago Drum Show?

I'm just grateful that all of our celebrities and sports stars have been able to get the C-19 test so early on in the crisis. What would we do without them ;-)

I'd love to go to the show one of...

Re: Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Ludwig "tri tone" wrap?

This wasn't common with vintage kits as a wrap... However, the "Duco" paint scheme was quite popular, which kind of mimics that striped look (usually with a bit of a fade).

A few years ago there...

Re: Ludwig "tri tone" wrap?

As JS mentioned most likely in school colors, the banded Pearl wraps were extremely common and available through the marching line-up. The 2-color/3-stripe was the most popular, but Ludwig also...

How large are the files sizes that you are trying to post?

Re: New Bearings for Foot Pedal

Check out McMaster-Carr, if they don't have it you probably don't need it.

Re: Is this drum out of round?? Ludwig Coliseum

Good catch on this. I didn't see it on the first pass. The cord should absolutely pass through the "gate" and not in between the rim and head. With that, it's easy to understand why there is a...

Re: Help! Is this a Ludwig Coliseum?

A little strange, but it might not have been placed properly in the drilling jig. My Coliseum and others that I've seen are centered. However, errors can happen as not all work is done by drum...
