Re: Ludwig Super Sensitive versus Rogers Dynasonic

The SS Ludwig and Dyna are nice,..

I tried the .."Birdman" of SS drums in the race. I`ll never forget how stupid sensitive it is and how many sounds you can get.

Re: Heads for single sided "concert" bass drum?

I use Remo emperor with black dots. Tuning is difficult alone because they do not sound the same in front of you as you in front of them.

Re: Very old Zildjian 12"

A heavy 12 as a bottom wont ever fail you. Thin to me limits range. To me thin equals quiet.

Re: Very old Zildjian 12"

I don`t like thin cymbals, you can`t hit, hit them. The only one I like thinner, is the top HH. I like the bottom very thick. My crash has to be thick and a 20 or 22 ride is gonna be thick too. Most...

Re: Ludwig snare

Of course ten lugs would be the Las Vegas model. I`m having trouble putting that throw-off on any of them.

Re: Just picked up this beauty! What did I get?

To help you date it, up until 1930, the engraving was located to the right of the throw-off. after 1930 it is located to the left. Yours is to the lefty side panel.

Re: Restoring Rogers Fullerton kit

It`s often overlooked when the wrong hoop is combined with the lug, there is a splay in the t-rods. this drives the hoop into the shell. Yours have zero splay. Fantastic condition too.

Re: 20in Big Stamp with 7 holes?

The holes do not look factory to me. One looks closer to the bell as to hold a chain.
