Re: Two estate sale finds

That is the correct P83 on the Standard snare. They are one of the few drums that came with this particular version. It has the Ludwig Block logo as opposed to most P83s that had a Ludwig Script logo.

Re: Is my Acrolite really 1964?

Acrolites did come with COB hoops during the same period that Supras and other drums did. And yes, that's a '64. Nice!

Re: Old mystery cymbals - Help?!

Yes, the Paiste Timeline lists the Made in Germany Super's from '55-'61 and being NS12. I had a 18" that was pretty trashy and dark. What size is yours?

Re: Type II Trans stamp
