Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

Interesting...I think the shells look a little short according to the tape measure. It would be better to measure the shell by itself without the rims attached....but I'm getting the suspicion they...

Re: Ludwig Black Galaxy School Festival

WOW! That drum sold for a grand?!?!?!? WOWOWOWOW! That wrap may be rare, but that particular drum is really in poor condition if you ask me. But hey, to each his own!

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

You're more than welcome...but keep us posted as to whatever you find out because I'm curious now if the wrap is original or new. Thanks.

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

I looked but couldn't find where to buy the guide...saw his website and looked around a bit. I should probably take some time and contribute my drum badge information to him.

I don't remember the...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

LOL! Great! Yes, I'd like to get a copy. I always went by this website's resources for those numbers before, but I forgot that there are some inaccuracies. I hope there is a way to correct the...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

Also...just thought of it...Drums of this era had a particular tendency to have some lifting/curling up at the wrap seam due to the type of glue that was used. I'd like to take a look at the wrap...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

Just FYI...I had a Deluxe Classic with pointy badges and no serial numbers for the 13 and 22 and the 16 had a number (can't reference it anymore) that traced to be from 1976. All of the shells were...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

Again...in MY mind, I see an almost flawless green sparkle finish, beautiful black paint on the wood hoops...almost as if it's been sitting in a hermetically sealed room....BUT...the tom mount on the...

Re: help identify the snare drum

Looks like a luan shell....which would lead me to think it's a Made In Japan (MIJ) drum...likely made in the Star or Pearl factory back in the 70's. But I don't know what to think about this e lug...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

I dunno, man...My spider senses are up on this one....I think it might be a re-wrap. The original green sparkle wrap almost always faded...This kit just seems too consistently unfaded. And the...

Re: Rogers Butcher Block

Actually, I see that some of the Rogers T-rods are replaced with Ludwigs...With that in mind, I'd need to see more pictures. Maybe the kit isn't as nice as I thought.

Re: Rogers Butcher Block

Ummmmm....THREE-ply shells? Really? I had an early Big R set with grey interiors and I think they were 5-ply Keller shells....definitely not 3-ply, though. Did they switch to 3-ply shells later?

Re: Slingerland Cordova

I wonder what wrapping a drum in leatherette (or whatever that Cordova finish really is) does to the resonant qualities of the wood shell. It seems like it's a relatively soft material that would act...

Re: Sonor Teardrop

Could be the lighting then. But it appears that the wrap on the bass drum hoop is several shades lighter than the drum wrap. I've never seen this color before. Is there a name for the color? If so,...

Re: Slingerland Cordova

I agree! And I don't think your opinion is rude at all. But I will say that I acknowledge there MUST be someone out there who identifies with these era-specific finishes. Just consider that Citrus...

Re: Slingerland Cordova

I totally agree about the unusual stuff. I'm the same way when it comes to "oddball" tuning systems. Most of what I really like, people have expressed flat-out HATE for.

As far as finishes go, I...

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

I now feel VERY fortunate to have been able to play some really fun gigs in close proximity to some very good players. Of course, I was from the ilk of drummers who were never destined to be really...

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

Yeah...sorry...I was trying to keep it just related to working as drummers in this time of crisis. I probably should have known better.
