Re: Ludwig 100th Anniversary

Perhaps they should have a contest open to anyone who plays Ludwig. You send in a photo of yourself with your Ludwig set or snare and get in a drawing for kit of your choice.

Re: New Hoops for a Rogers Bass

I always prefer a nice original, even if I have to repaint it.
Either way works.

Re: Traditional Grip vs. Matched Grip.. OPINIONS??

Re: The problem with buying vintage drums on the web

My '64 Luddie BDPs are 20, 12 and 16. I have tons of sustain on both toms. I can tune the 12 low or high, it sounds great. Maybe I'm lucky? I'm using Aquarian regular coateds on the tops and clears...

Re: Where is all the GOLD sparkle?

The Gold Sparkle kits pop up on eBay once in awhile, but it's not everyday. People often confuse Champagne for gold and visa versa.
I was feeling the same way about finding nice clean Silver...

Re: Sacrilige or practicality

I use a modern clamp on bracket on my left crash cymbal stand for my 12" tom. The tom has a rims mount. For the bass drum, use rim mount spurs and a Ringo type spur if necessary. If you use a modern...

Re: 69' Jazzette.. 18 x 12, 14 x 14 and 12 x 8

The seller mentions "Arizona chrome". Does this mean he replated the hardware? For me, I'd rather a kit be all original, even of the hardware isn't 100% perfect. The kit is still rare, so perhaps...

Re: Ludwig Tom Mount Question

Thanks 'Lugs! I'll just get a nut that'll work until I come across an original... All in all the set is real nice, an easy eight out of ten and almost no sign of age in the wrap. I'm going to sand...

Re: Educate Me, Please! - Ludwig Cymbal Stands

I believe you got it right, the round heads are the earlier one. One other distinction is the way the upper most rod tightens. The early sixties stands had a little clip , a small piece of metal with...

Re: Opinions about EBay changes?

I think eBay has it wrong. As stated earlier, buyers are not always fair and reasonable. When I was selling many of my vintage 78s, 45s and LPs, I always underated my item. I would say, some would...
