Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

Re: Ludwig Jazzettes

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

Yep, that long ago, hardly anyone one was even looking for them. Like K.O., I, too, thought those little kits looked funny and I scoffed at the idea of owning one!....a long time ago.... For whatever...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

For the longest time....back near the turn of the millennium, I started looking for Jazzette kits to be used in a studio where I worked a lot. I couldn't find a single one that didn't have some kind...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

If that mahogany kit was mine, then it wouldn't leave me for a penny less than 10K....don't care what the "fair market value" is or not! That kit is just drop-dead gorgeous....nicest looking mahogany...

Re: Ludwig Standard snare price check

The very first drum set I ever played upon was my best friend's Ruby Strata kit! And....of course everything sounded wonderful to me. I still reminisce about that kit with him almost every time we...

Re: Ludwig Jazzettes

I guess the best way to say it is that Ludwig tried several ways to make the 12 X 18 drum applicable, but the most famous way was the application of it to the Jazzette kit.

And by the way, Premier...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

That's right. The reason for that "woe" is due to the fact that, subsequently, those catalogs are the only "official" reference we collectors have to use. Anyone could have ordered a kit in virtually...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

As time went on, the Jazzette went through changes....and eventually disappeared as we knew it. I can't imagine them as ever being good sellers in the 70's. I've never seen any of the later versions...

Again, please take these musings with a grain of salt because (other than interviewing Roy, himself) I have no way of confirming anything. I actually attempted to try and find a route to contact Mr....

Yeah, Roy was/is a diminutive guy and, since I wrote all that, I've heard more stories that fit very well with the "Jet" vs "Jazzette" kits and Roy....

Re: Slingerland-to buy or not to buy

I think you're seeing the heads as blueish because they are partially reflecting that blue background....my 2 cents.

That grommet looks waaaaaay more messed with than it should. The bass drum hoop...
