Re: Serious question about vintage drums

I prefer vintage drums because they used thinner shells, rounded edges and most had reinforcement hoops. Another factor is the price, why would you pay $2,000-3,000 for a new Ludwig or dw when you...

Re: Ludwig Gig

Thanks, they are nice, so nice that I'm no longer selling them. I was trying to get enough money to buy a Rogers eagle badge kit, but these sound too good to let them go. Besides, deep down, I'm a...

Ludwig Gig

My new band played our first gig Friday night. I decided to take my Ludwig kit to give it a good work out. I had a blast and of course they sounded great. We did so well, they booked us again next...

Weed is bad for you, will probably be as bad a cigarettes if they start packaging it. Besides, it stinks.Eye Ball

Re: Duplex Drums

That kit is long gone. I bought it and traded it to a friend of mine almost two years ago.

Re: Ludwig Red Sparkle Drums

I'm confused to why there is no interest, is it because the 16 is a keystone badge? Like I said, the price is negotiable.

Re: 1961 Slingerland? Help needed

So, you think he could potentially get $900 for the whole kit? I seriously doubt that, the snare may be worth $300 on it's own, but he'd be lucky to get $300 for the rest of the kit.

Re: 1961 Slingerland? Help needed

First off welcome. I'm a little surprised you've had that kit 20 years and you don't know anything about it.
I don't know what year they are, but the wrap is not so good
and there are a lot of...

Re: Any ideas regarding this Ludwig Kit?

The kit in question is definitely not from the same era, they didn't use 6ply shells.

Re: Rogers Red Onyx Drums Complete

The cracks aren't moving around, I don't notice any difference in sound from other Rogers kits I've had, so I'll leave them as they are.

Re: Rogers Red Onyx Drums Complete

I'm not going to re-wrap, it will cost me almost as much as I have in the kit and all the work is a pain. They look good enough to gig with and at the end of the day, the sound is all that really...

Re: Rogers Red Onyx Drums Complete

I'm considering doing a re-wrap, would you guys? The cracks are fairly bad and there's some bubbling on the wrap.

It's one of my favorites too, I wish there was a way to repair the cracks in the wrap.

Re: Ludwig Drum Throne

I believe the logo in white letters is the back of the seat. If I had turned it the other way the top logo would had been backwards when I sat on it. This is the way they advertise it.

I have this Ludwig drum throne with the b/o badge logo. It's pretty comfortable, but I thought I would like one with a back rest. So I found this old Gilbralter bycycle seat with a back rest on cl,...

Re: Why do people dent your heads ?

I can proudly say I don't dent my heads, break my sticks or crack my cymbals. Now, I suppose if you're using the same one ply head night after night playing at full volume, those heads will get worn...
