Re: My new orange MIJ kit! ID help needed

Thanks for the info! I will measure the toms tomorrow. They are not here and I don't know why 13" and 14" was what was in my head.

So, this 1966 Ludwig snare is on craigslist...

These are the only two pictures. The seller is not very good at communicating. It's an hour away and $200. What do you think?

Re: Can anyone ID this vintage cymbal

Thanks everyone!! That ring of dots around the underside of the bell is actually raised. It feels like ALL the circles you see are raised, not stamped in, but I don't know how that could be.

Re: Can anyone ID this vintage cymbal

Thanks!! It doesn't sound like any Camber I've heard, but I've not heard that many. It is a medium or medium heavy weight, doesn't feel cheap.

Can anyone ID this vintage cymbal

I cannot find a logo on it anywhere. I am hoping the small circles on the flip side will be a clue to someone in the know. The only reason I ask is because of how great it sounds!

Re: eBay Bidding - Disappearing Bids

Yes, ebay should automatically add items you've bid on into your watch list, but they don't. Somewhere there's a list of what you're bidding on, but who bids enough to keep a list?
