Re: What Ludwig Kit Do I Have?

Iíve done a lot of reading and every time I stumble on a similar thread on here or elsewhere, I become a little more unsure in terms of what set I actually have. Big Beat? Deluxe Classic? Super...

Re: Question for Rogers experts

For what it's worth, see the below link to Bentley's drum shop in Fresno, CA. Two Rogers sets, one of which is (reportedly) "The Tonight Show" kit.

Re: 60's Rogers Floor Tom s/n label - markings?

Thanks....I neglected to mention that my Navy friend Jim Kendig grew up in Covington (on the Kentucky side). Ronald Kendig, the guy who signed the drum, was very likely an Uncle or something.

Say Josh, you mentioned Covington in your discussion of Cleveland and Dayton drums.

Pardon my ignorance, but did Covington play any role in the production of Rogers drums?

The reason I ask, is...

Re: Different Mufflers, is this right?

And...before anyone asks....in that photo I attached (lifted off ebay), one of the nuts has gotten "stuck" on the end of the "baseball bat," giving it a very strange look.

Lotsa parts! A bit...

Re: Different Mufflers, is this right?

Yeah, 'baseball bat' mufflers look cool, but a few too many parts! They must've been relatively expensive, for what they were...just a muffler.

Re: Different Mufflers, is this right?

Yes, the early machined tone controls are 3/4" diameter. I just measured a few snares from the early 1960s, plus the 3 toms and snare on my 1966 kit. They're all the same.

According to pages...

Re: Ludwig Question What To Do?

Thanks for that info, and the quick reply...and oops - I confused Mod Orange with Citrus Mod. Those type finishes were very interesting, but too "far out" for this traditionalist.

Re: Would you trade?

The tom mount looks great to me. Perhaps the chrome plate wasn't the greatest on that part - and it may look worn up close, but from your photos, it looks perfect to me.

Congrats on getting that...

Requesting advice on Ludwig bass drum hoop inlays

Hi guys,

I bought two 22" bass drum hoops to upgrade the nasty ones on my 1966 Ludwig kit. I'm very happy with the condition of the wood and the repainted black (although it's a bit too glossy). ...
