Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

I hadn't browsed ebay or Reverb in awhile. Tonight I was reminded of why. There seems to be such a sense of greed in the vintage drum market to me. It's everything: kits, cymbals,...

Re: Ludwig 75th Anniversary "Eagle" Kit for Sale on Ebay-Big Beat Configuration

At the time (1984), Ludwig was still using the Blue/Olive badges, just before they went to the Black/White badges. I think these badges were a one off for these kits because Ludwig wanted to harken...

Re: Vintage MIJ Snare Drum ID Help!

Very cool snare, Mark. It reminds me a lot of a BDP "Gracy" snare that I have. I dig the extra wide re-rings.

Wow, I didn't realize you had such copious notes on them. Thanks so much for sharing! They are still for sale by the way. I'm thinking about possibly taking them up to the Chicago Show this year.

Re: Are Big R's worth much?
