Re: 1950's WFL shell construction?

I'm gonna go check it out tomorrow, or the weekend. Yeah, could be very cool if they're as advertised. We shall see. Thanks for all the help, group!

Re: 1950's WFL shell construction?

Cool, thank you!
What I was trying to get at was whether they were tucking the wrap beneath the last ply and then rolling the shell in the fifties, specifically '56 as they did in the sixties. I'm...

1950's WFL shell construction?

Were there WFL's or early keystone Ludwigs constructed with three-plys, two rings, and the "last-ply-wrap-overlap" technique as my 1960's Ludwig shells? I've spent the last hour or so digging around...

Re: Need help with vintage Ludwig kit

Did any Keystone BD's have the square-section spikes like my 70's BD?

Re: '63 Hollywood WMP

Wow, thank you so much!
They've been in the family since new. I'm the second generation on them. I treat them as heirlooms (and they LOVE it). Well worth the effort. I'll tell all y'all, it's great...

Re: My Ludwig Educators

PLASTIC lugs? Wow, I never knew that, and I've been a Ludwig man since '76. I wonder if I've ever played a kit with them and didn't know it? How long would they hold up on, say a one-player...

Re: Parts you wish you could find...?

Any rubber molders in the house? These would be a good part to add to one's merch. catalog. I'd buy a bunch if I could find any, fer sure. These are Ludwig for their flat stands (early '60s til-?)....

Re: vintage ludwig keystone snare anomaly??

Thanks!
Yeah as I look through their pages it occurred to me they might be using slightly other pix from time to time. On the '63 page they have kits with round and with bats. Just more interesting...

Ludwig flat rubber feet?

I'm surprised nobody's re-popped these.
I'd like to buy nine of them (yeah, I know, but I gotta ask). They fit early '60's flat stands and they look a lot like this one of two 50-year survivors....

Re: vintage ludwig keystone snare anomaly??

I agree with the '63, too. My 63's have the baseball bat mufflers, too. I saw in the '63 catalog page with the Hollywod kit, that it's showing round knobs on the shells (as an aside). I wonder how...

Re: 1963 Ludwig inspector initials?

Hi Blair, I'm in Livonia. GR's a bit of a hike from me. Happy lake effects, though! I figured I'd get an answer here and so posted about it here, first. I was in Bill Cairo's today and he didn't see...

Re: 1963 Ludwig inspector initials?

Oh, I've been quite careful with these shells. Thanks Andrew. Take a look at you other shells and you might get a clearer pencil mark.
I see that the Ludwig site has no e-mail address to contact...

Re: Parts you wish you could find...?

In the olden days dinosaur skins were what the olden folks used to make their drum heads out of (hence the term "skins"). They would change tension with the weather (hence the invention of the Remo...

1963 Ludwig inspector initials?

I've been cleaning and refitting a WMP five-piece and I notice there are the initials Y.C.(?) penciled in by the vent holes. Anyone know who that would have been? The two ride toms have the date "Feb...

WTB: 22" Ludwig BD hoop 1 5/8" width.

I'm looking for one 22" hoop for my '63 Ludwig BD. The width on the remaining one, measured from where it meets the head-rim is 1 5/8". Somewhat narrower than they were in the seventies at 1 3/4"...
