Re: floor tom shells

Re: Cleaning and Acrolite

I would do just what you mentioned Jeff. Clean the area and any type of good wax/polish to coat it for the future.

Re: 1966 Ludwig Pioneer question

Re: Timeline for Ludwig Baseball Bat Muffler on toms

Red felts also continued into 1965. During the first few months of '65 the red and white felts were used together. I assume this ended when the stock of the red felt mufflers was exhausted.

Re: Anyone here interested in hearing what a 22" pre-trans sound like?

Absolutely. I've got a 20" that I own and play. Other than that, I've not heard another 20 and certainly not a 22. Would love to hear it.

Re: Snare Identification

Re: Zildjian 16"

The large CO. in the stamp started around '80 I think. The solid ink logo on the underside was '82 and later. Hope this helps some.

Re: FOR SALE: 1970s Ludwig 6.5x14 LM402 Supraphonic Snare drum in *amazing* condition

Is yours the pointy corner badge or the rounded corner badge?. The pointy badge models bring considerably more, but certainly a NOS of any kind is going to have some substantial value.
