Re: Ludwig, Slingerland Cymbal Tilter Sections-any brand that fits on solid 3/8" rod

Re: Value of Date Stamp 1969 Acrolite

That's one in which the shell was made for a Blue Olive badge. Instead, it got a Keystone badge which is why the top of the badge is under the hoop. Some of these had no serial numbers and some did....

Re: Late '60s LM402s

And....the small knobs that were used on the Acrolites during that period are different than the original small knob mufflers from the late 50's/early 60's. Same bolt hole patterns. But the knobs are...

Re: Late '60s LM402s

Re: Ludwig Universal yard sale find for $1

Careful with any abrasives and/or buffing. That 90-100 year old plating can be very thin!

Re: Late '60s LM402s

A lot of it would be the timing/production. Ludwig used the baseball bat muffler from the early 60's(after the small round knob) and through at least mid '68. And Blue Olive badges were present as...
