Re: Tip for extra height adjustment on Ludwig Rail Mounts

Good tip.

I'm kind of the opposite...I want everything low and flat(horizontal).

Re: Price check 1966 ludwig black oyster snare

I tapped on a few Jazz Fests in my time.....sounded okay but never felt right to me. The Pioneers, on the other hand, sounded great and felt great to me. I have a gold sparkle 1964 (red muffler felt)...

Re: Can anyone identify this please?

Yeah the Acrolite is (in my opinion) the best sounding snare drum there is. It's the Supraphonic's lugly, little brother! ;) Plus, Acrolites can take the abuse of regular gigging just fine. I love...

Re: A rookie question about tuning my Ludwig’s.

Older drums tend NOT to have the most-even bearing edges, so seating the heads is a must. Plus, you're more than likely to not find the widest tuning range with older, rounder bearing edges, so...

Re: Is there such a thing as an 18" Downbeat Bass Drum?

Ludwig didn't foresee a collector's market in their future, at the time they were making catalogs and selling those drums. Remember, in those days, the drums weren't "vintage" drums! They were...

Re: Is there such a thing as an 18" Downbeat Bass Drum?

This is why it is important to remember, we are talking about the names of things given in the Ludwig catalogs. As collectors, we have to establish some form of reference from which to gauge what we...

Re: Price check on 18” Gretsch SSB bass drum

Yeah, I'd probably pay that for them just to resell them for more money (after I recorded with them, maybe!) ;).

And I always get nervous around those Rogers collets -whether they are the...

I won't argue any of that. That kind of stuff bugs me. Maybe I just have OCD.

Re: Price check on 18” Gretsch SSB bass drum

I'll bet they sound great. That bass drum is pretty rare. Too bad they messed up the collector value....but the player value is high. Probably a fair price to someone who has been looking for one for...

Re: Drum Companies and Their Worst Ideas

Some drums that are super-collectible now (Trixon Telstar and Speedfire for example) are collectible simply because they came from a time when there were a lot of experimental ideas that were as much...

Re: What's with the insane asking prices on Reverb?

When it comes to vintage sets that were/are common -such as the Ludwig Super Classic configuration, then condition is everything. Any alteration or damage is going to devalue such a kit, greatly....

Re: Spray-on head texture

My Ruff-Kote story is this:

I've always been that kid who took care of his stuff, so when I got my first kit (a Tempro), I was meticulous about taking care of it. However, my young mind couldn't...

Re: How can I salvage this kit?

Well, the bass drum is trashed -in MY opinion. I only say that because there are a few VERY dedicated woodworking experts who might be able to do something....but for the...

Re: Favorite Bass Drum sound/recording?

I like the sound of this little Ludwig Jazzette kit Alphonse Mouzon is playing. Even though he has the front head off, he gets a really big, clear, articulate sound from it....plus, I am a Jazzette...

Re: Contemplating selling my only 2 vintage snare drums

Hey OP

It's not like you wouldn't be able to find a Supra or an Acro on the market if you ever needed one. Those two models of snare drums are probably the two most ubiquitous drums in the world....

Re: Anyone know what this is worth?

It's not going to be worth much because it's not the type of drum that gets used anymore and it's also not in great condition.....maybe ~$100 on a good day.

Re: Any ideas what this Snare drum is?

I presume that the drum is 14" in diameter? Is that correct?

If so, the fact that is has 8 t-rods (as opposed to 6) and the fact the shell is made of oak and is "full-size" 14" diameter (not a...
