Re: Tama snare worth??

Looks to be a 70's Imperialstar King Beat. Try searching the name for more general info, and Reverb and Ebay for pricing information. I know jack about these snares.

Re: Ludwig snare 15x6,5 serial number: 7463 - Identification

Yes, it's a legitimate Auditorium. Basically a 6.5" Jazz Festival. Have never looked into value, as I don't have any plans to sell my '59 version.

Re: How Do You Play? Matched or Traditional Grip?

I play both. Usually it is whatever feels more comfortable playing the song. My band plays a very eclectic mix of music, which varies greatly from song to song within the set lists.
I seem to get a...

1967 Ludwig Super Sensitive Restoration

This drum came to me after 52 years of playing, years of pitting, and subsequently being abused by a wire wheel. I got it very very cheaply.

I had it stripped by a chrome shop, Then hand sanded...

Anyone have any input? I believe the tube lugs would not be original!

Re: What Kind of a Yamaha Snare is this

Re: Ludwig COB hoops history

The COB to COS started in late 64/early 65. In 1965, and even into 1966, it was not uncommon to find a snare with 1 COB and 1 COS.By early 1966 the changeover would have been mostly complete,...

Re: Dating This Ludwig Kit

Based upon hardware (except tom post) and clear interiors, my guess would be right about 1967-68. The tom post is 80's/90's Rockers.

Re: Help with identification!!!

Looks to be a pieced together kit as far as I can tell from the pictures. The serial #s on the black/white badges cannot be used to date it as there were no records kept by Ludwig. They were...
