Re: Drum Poll....Kits looks good, bad?????

Re: Help with wrap color

Welcome to the MIJ world!

Ludwig's "Standard" series had a similar wrap called "Blue Strata", but I'm not sure if that lingo was also used on MIJ Drums at the time.

I came across these recently at an excellent price, so I snagged them. The store I bought them from had them listed as a "Refinished Pearl" kit. Looking at them, I knew they were...

Re: MIJ No Name Drums

That sure is a mish-mash of parts. American ingenuity strikes again with that tom holder!

I see three different lug types, Ludwig copy (or real), Slingerland copy and the generic "Pearl style"...

Re: Painted Luddy restoration finally done :-)

What's with Acrolite (and Blackrolite) prices?

I know these have steadily gone up over the past few years, but some of these prices are out of control.

My local Guitar Center has one for $249, just a standard B/O Badge in good condition.

Re: Bass Drum Mounted Cymbals

I took a look at your drums in a separate thread. Nice kit!

I wouldn't put a heavy cymbal on it. The other downside is that you can't adjust how close or far way from you the cymbal is like you...

Re: Good Deal or Not

It's nice to see a Blue Ripple wrap that hasn't started to turn mint green. So many of this Blue Ripple wraps turn mint green as they age/fade.
