Re: 1952 WFL Porto-Pak Outfit No. 986P in Sparkling Red Pearl with era correct FT

Gorgeous.
The offset badge on bass drum is not rare in Premier drums of this period but this is the first time I see that issue in a Ludwig.

Re: 21th century surf drummers

I understend you both points of view. Poppies, at least you play with some right drumheads. O-lugs, I don't mean gigging with the top piece of your colection, but for the price of a modern drumset...

21th century surf drummers

I like several music styles, from Jazz to Hard Rock, Bossanova, Soul and 60's Pop. Surf is one of my favorites.

Re: Ludwig Downbeat 1965

How is it possible an almost 40 year man is the original owner of a '65 drumset? Did their parents bought it new thinking some day they will have a drummer son and then it was storaged several years...

Re: Age

I define vintage for myself as something made before I was born. Acordingly to that, I have no interest in drum parafernalia after 1970. It's a personal point of view and of course I understand that...

Re: Ludwig floor tom correct legs

Thanks, Mark.
Yes indeed the legs it came with are too short to me and, as you can see, one of them has a little rust. Mine are 16,5" rubber included though. Now I know the legs I'm considering are...
