Re: Ludwig Sparkling Green Pearl

I agree it didn't sell a lot. I started playing as a young teen at the end of the '50s, and back in the day I don't recall ever seeing anyone gigging with a green sparkle set, regardless of...

Re: Help with value of my Ludwig Set

The lugs are incorrect for your 9x13 "Super Classic" tom. It's a Club Date tom which I believe were mostly sold with a lacquer finish, but were also available in pearl wraps. Clearly this was a set...

Re: Prices on the Move

It is so easy to extrapolate results from a limited sample size, or use insufficient testing criteria, and draw conclusions which may or may not be accurate. Much of this planets social, political...

Re: Prices on the Move

Did it actually sell at that price or was that an asking price?

Re: Completed Set-up!

Thanks for the details. I'm not often jealous of the kits posted here, but yours strikes a real chord with me. Absolutely beautiful.

Re: Completed Set-up!

Very nice! The color is rich and vibrant and the hardware looks terrific. Unless the picture is hiding the aging process, it looks like its in virtually mint condition.

Re: Sticks

The size and weight of the Erskine Ride stick is very similar to a VF 5A, but the tip makes cymbals sound magical. Great stick.

Re: Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all your gear?

Well, if you keeping a bunch of them in an offsite storage location maybe you really don't need them and might consider selling them. Drums are meant to be played, not just looked at. And if you have...

Re: Sticks

It depends. Vic Firth 5As, Vic Firth Peter Erskine Ride Stick, and for low level playing, especially behind a vocalist,, the AJ6 which has a 7A shaft with a very thin neck and small tip.

Re: Skyrocketing Prices or Just Me?

I understand, but doesn't that assume you can find the same set in the same condition from a collector who is willing to part with it, and at a significantly lower price? Holding off buying could...

Re: Skyrocketing Prices or Just Me?

Please define off the map. What kind's of prices for which kits, and can you find them for less elsewhere?

Re: I Did the Unthinkable

While I would not have done it, in the end they are your drums to do with what you what you wish. At least your modification emulates practice from the period.

Re: Skyrocketing Prices or Just Me?

I just looked at Reverb, and the majority of the sets I saw there, while priced somewhat on the high side, seem to be at least in the ballpark for their stated condition. There are lots of sets on...

Re: Ludwig Atlas tom mounts on vintage drums

Yep, I saw the description of your kit earlier, and my comments really weren't directed at your decision to use the Atlas mounts. I was just expressing my general feelings about using these terrific...

Re: Ludwig Atlas tom mounts on vintage drums

I realize that these new Atlas mounts are incredible devices, and on new drums I would use them in a heartbeat. However, on vintage drums, like my 1961/62 WMP super classics, they will alter the...

Re: Bosphorus Master...sizzle or not?

My son Milestones and I have a thin Bos 20" Hammer. to which we added a single copper rivet. Sounds great. I wouldn't add more than two rivets or you're liable to get tired of the amount of extra...

Re: Zildjian hats

They look like '60s hats. I assume the hole in the bottom cymbal was intended to reduce airlock, but its unlikely to make a significant difference and it shouldn't affect the sound. Since '60s hats...

Re: Civil War era snare?

That snare drum is probably much later than the Civil War. I'm guessing the turn of the century or later. There actually were some snare drums during or shortly after the Civil War that had metal...

Re: New Year Pasadena Rose Parade Marching bands

Yep. In his youth my son was a snare drummer in his high school's marching band. They only used Yamaha drums. I remember the Kevlar heads were so tight that playing it with Hardimon sticks reminded...

Re: Fake old k for sale

The photos you attached actually look like pretty decent cymbals. I wonder what they actually are and how they sound. I also find it odd that they go to so much trouble to reproduce old K stamps but...

Re: What's a '60's Ludwig 5.25+" Snare Qualify in terms of size ?...

My circa '61/'62 jazz fest is around 5.5" deep. Essentially a Super Classic shell with a P83 throw-off. When describing it to others I would just call it a Jazz Festival. You only need to refer to...

Re: I give up with Ludwig throw-offs.

I'm sorry for your disappointment. My son and I have had the P86 on 3 non vintage Ludwig snares for years. They all have been used extensively on many gigs and rehearsals with no problems. Not sure...

Re: Vintage Ludwig snare.Need info

For future reference, if they had attached properly you would be able to see them and would not have needed to ask that question.
