Re: Ludwig Pink Oyster pearl?

My point was simply that the re-issue Oyster Pink was made in a different manner than the original stuff and doesn't look exactly the same as the old stuff, regardless of where it came from. I'd want...

Re: Ludwig Pink Oyster pearl?

I wonder which version of Oyster Pink they are offering to make if 90 sheets were ordered? Ludwig did the re-issue a few years back that was basically a white strata pearl base with a pink pigment...

Re: Ludwig Hollywood series from 60ís?

Definitely not Ludwig tom mounts. Can't really see them well enough to tell what they might be but I'd guess they are some made in Japan mounts. Are the insides of the drums painted white or gray?...

Re: Fred Armisen's "Standup For Drummers" on Netflix

Never looked that far down on the home page, I thought the Vintage section was the end all be all....and don't call me Shirley

Re: Fred Armisen's "Standup For Drummers" on Netflix

I watched it the other night. I thought it was mildly amusing in parts but it wasn't as good as I was hoping for (I'm a big fan of some of Fred's other works) and I thought the editing was somewhat...

Re: 60's Ludwig Hi Hat repair

They need to update their specs about this piece then. Sorry that I steered you in the wrong direction but glad you were able to make it work. Perhaps if that one had still been in that store a few...

Re: Psychedelic Red snares on ebay

Actually, I already did a snare as well but was unhappy with the results. I used the regular Red Psychedelic from Bum wrap on that drum and feel that it looks too dark compared to my other drums. The...

Re: Unknown bass drum pedal

There's a very odd design dichotomy there. The footboard and center pivot section look very modern and the posts look like something out of the Steampunk era. I'm not saying that Yamaha didn't build...

Re: Slingerland Snare -- Original?

Hadn't noticed that, but yeah, I don't think the factory would have got paint there.

Re: 60's Ludwig Hi Hat repair

The Gibraltar's description says it will fit a tube from 1" to 5/8th's". Not sure exactly how they accomplish that but the top tube of an 1121, 1123, 1123-1 and 1124 are all 5/8ths" diameter so this...

Re: Psychedelic Red snares on ebay

Bum Wrap "Red Psychedelic, more blue" probably as close as anyone is going to come to a repro unless Ludwig were to chose to redo Psych Red in the same way as they have just brought Mod Orange back...

Re: Slingerland Snare -- Original?

You could order a drum in any color lacquer you wanted back then but due to the two-toned nature of the current finish I'd guess that at some point someone sprayed a new coat of that red Duco over an...

Re: Psychedelic Red snares on ebay

Rather rare to have a matching snare in these mod colors (Citrus Mod, Mod Orange, Psych Red) because at the time they were for sale almost every set was cataloged and bought with a metal snare...

Re: Help with value of my Ludwig Set

1121 Hi-Hat would be from roughly 1963 or before. It was replaced by the Spur-lock model 1123 around mid/late 1963 although surely some of the older models were still available for sale in music...

Re: Slingerland set identification

You were free to order whatever sizes you wanted. I don't recall 12/16/20 being a standard Slingerland catalog outfit (generally you'd see 12/14/20) but it's possible in the fine print of the...

Re: Help with value of my Ludwig Set

My guess would be that a drum student put this set together one piece at a time as he progressed as a drummer and/or could afford additional drums ( or perhaps his parents gave him a new piece every...

Re: Ludwig or not?

Looks to be Ludwig but I'm not sure what exactly and I can't see the details well enough to tell for sure. The floor tom looks like it might be a converted 12x15 marching drum and as such it would...

Re: Ludwig Rocker II's?

Possibly a Rocker "Phaser Power" set with upgraded spurs.

Re: Ludwig Rocker II's?

Those look to be the American made (Chicago) drums. All the hardware is basically the same as the more expensive line but the shells were 4 ply for the toms and 6 ply for the bass drums.

Re: New to me drums: Gretsch bop kit!

Very cool. The stained natural finish is something of a rarity from that era, particularly the RB bass drum. Nice score!

Re: I Did the Unthinkable

I put a cymbal mount and a rail mount on a new kit recently. I just decided I wanted it to be the way I wanted it to be. I also put a Rogers mount on one of my "Ringo" sets. In that case the drum had...

Re: Is this a Gretsch / Jasper shell? (1970s)

People assault drums in truly weird ways but that exterior finish does look like Gretsch walnut stain under Nitro lacquer. If the basis of the drum is original to that label and badge then it is a...

Re: Is this a Gretsch / Jasper shell? (1970s)

Everything looks mostly correct except for the missing silver fence paint and the patina on the badge. Possibly someone stripped both. The badge definitely was polished with something that removed...
