Re: Is there any interest in Marchers anymore?

Yes! I'm interested in keeping them as marchers... though it depends greatly on the era and condition....

Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

There are a few issues I think with the new Speed King mainly some of the fasteners and use of plastic vs nylon bushings, etc, etc.

If you are looking for a Speed King to gift to your son, I'd...

Definitely looks like horn engraving. Almost like a later Selmer Mark series (Sax) flower pattern.

Re: Identification: Ludwig snare Monroe

Yep. Blue Marble. Early 90's. I think this finish is on the cover of the Ludwig Catalog circa 1994 or something.

Re: FOR SALE: Vintage 1938 Ludwig & Ludwig 12x18 Single Tension Bass Drum

Its actually a marching tenor drum, but either way, could be adjusted to be used as a bass drum!

Re: Ok, here's another "funny" Jazzette (not)

Knowing the guy who actually re-wrapped and/or "built" the drum, I think this is a case of a buyer not knowing what is going on. My friend's business, is mostly to take orphans, or damaged kits, and...

Re: Ludwig Snare Drum L 472 Rock/Concert 14X6.5 Blue Cortex P87 Wire Strainer 1980s

I agree with what was mentioned above. The drum's color I think might be the primary turn off. I love the strainer, but if I was to take it, I'd have to remove the cortex and either re-wrap it in...

Re: Vintage Snare drum

Its a pretty standard "Tango" Drum. All the drummakers used to make them. With those tension rods, its a beginner (student) drum. Looks like a nice Walnut shell. The snares would be cord.

Re: Early P-83?

Its a standard generic strainer for marchers. Probably by W&A as I have a WFL, a Ludwig, a Slingerland, and a Gretsch with the same strainer. All it has is a tension knob. Not sure if its in the...

Re: CT Drum Show

As I was walking in, a WMP Radio King Set was walking out.... supposedly for $1200 out of consignment... crushed as I would have taken it!

Other than that... didn't see too many deals... there was...

Re: Are These Badges Worth This?

Not all of the 50 known Gladstone Snares are accounted for, these badges are most likely ones that never made it on a drum... no, there won't be any more made, but the cost is insane. IMHO

Re: I'm looking for some help with this Slingerland Two to One COB

If you are thinking that the indent below the strainer is damage, you would be incorrect. That's the crimp for the snare bed. Don't touch it!

Re: Civil War "Yankee" snare

It looks to be a 20's era model, judging from the Throwoff. 'Contract' drums, which was what the Union Army drums are referred to (from the contract placed to make them) were 16" or 17" by 12". Which...

Re: New Ludwig Stuff for NAMM 2019

They still insist on using one size tube lugs on all shells... UGH!!!!!! There is no reason why they couldn't drill the lugs on the 6.5" shells for 3.5" tubes....

Re: Ludwig70s supersensative snare repair

Sounds like you used a REMO ambassador or diplomat snare head. They tend to stretch a ton. Try and find a Ludwig or Aquarian snare side head.

Re: Rare Ludwig Identification

Well, here is a picture of a complete drum, made by the 20th Century Drum Company... most likely, the stickers inside were not original.

Re: Gretsch Max Roach bottom snare hoop question

That hoop is for a drum with gut or wire wrapped silk snares. They would bend up from the snare head and wrap around the bearing edge/snare bed. The slot was invented for wire snares with cord, or...

The block "M" on the thing gives it away. From the brain of Randy May.

The snares aren't gut, they are cord... FYI

Re: Did this Ludwig snare system actually work?

I've seen one in the wild... I think it would have been used with both set engaged at the same time rather than either/or. I don't think many were made so it is a rare bird.
