Re: Introduction and my BELOVED new maple kit!

It’s great to see a great kit fall into deserving hands. So many amazing ones get priced out of players hands, and end up unnplayed on a collectors shelf somewhere.

Re: Why Do Ludwig Drums Sound So Good

A big contributor to the sound, and it also affects guitar sound and pool cue feel, is the wood itself.

Old growth- big, fat old trees cut down after a hundred odd years- killed into boards and...

Re: Did this Ludwig snare system actually work?

Hey Rob is that really you, or someone borrowing your name? If it is you, it was good to see you at Bob’s chili party this year.

Re: A rookie question about tuning my Ludwig’s.

Getting back to this and although I tune one headat a time, I have both heads on the drum. Just like a rim mount vs a shell mount, the drum behaves differently with the mass of a rim and a head on...

Re: A rookie question about tuning my Ludwig’s.

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

I remember the drum frame. The shop where I ordered my blue kit was a dealer. It was a neat idea, particularly if you tend to “slouch” forward while playing. It Took the drum rack to the next level,...

Re: Yamaha Maple Drums
