Re: Rarest of the pearls

Oyster Pink Pearl is only listed in the color chart in the '60 catalog. I haven't seen any pics of the set in question. But Ludwig's early Hollywood kits with dual toms were being made during this...

Re: Ludwig set with mixed shells

I would think that the 3 ply would be pointy badge and maybe the 6 ply as well if they were in the transition period.

Re: Stamp ID if possible

Appears to be a 60's stamp Kevin. You can measure the height of the stamp. To be a 3 dot Large Stamp from the mid 50's it would need to be 1-7/8" or so. 1.25"-1.50" range would be 60's.

Re: '66 Ludwig Club Date Bop Kit Value?

Would be a game changer if an 18. I sold my Ludwig Black Lacquer 20/12/14 with matching snare for $1200 IIRC. The kit in question looks super nice from what I can see.
I'd figure hardware for $150...

Re: Ordered "No Brand" hi-hats for $33?

Maybe an Avedis on the left and something Italian on the right? Just my first thought on seeing the pic. Fingers crossed for something that sounds good.

Re: Vintage Ludwig Jazz Festival or Super Classic?

Re: Zildjian without stamp

Hollow ink era. Many of those have that exact type font on the top ink stamp. The hollow ink models are from approximately '76 to '83. Some of these stamps actually had 60's stamps on them and some...

Re: Old style Ludwig internal dampener vs. baseball bat type
