Re: Slingerland Deluxe Student Sparkling Green Pearl

I got this beauty at a garage sale 20 years ago. It was marked $35...I said "Hmmm, would you take $25?"....sure. :)

Re: Late 70's Lacquer over Brass Supraphonic

Removing any nickel plating would be a tall order. It would require that everything be removed from the shell and then having it dipped at a plating shop, just like when it was plated but with the...

Re: RepRo Red Ripple wRap?

Walopus is another company making wrap similar to Bumwrap. Between the two I've had better luck with Bumwrap but Walopus offers wraps that appear to be printed over a pearly base giving the results...

Re: Site of Drum City in London, Ringo's OBP

Such a small storefront to have been a major epicenter of the drumming world for a decade or so. Not just due to Ringo but also almost any British drummer who had any fame at that time.

And how...

Re: Identification of snare with ludwig parts

Those aren't Ludwig Standard lugs or sure don't appear to be on my monitor. There appears to be a crease down the center and sort of flat areas on each side of it forming a sort of triangular...

Re: ludwig new logo on bass drum 1970

I remember heads with the head model and small Ludwig logo in a metallic blue ink (I don't think "ink" is quite the proper term though, some type of transfer film probably). The big bass drum logo...

Re: Identify Bass Pedal

Perhaps a variation of the Rogers Rocket?

Re: Different Gretsch round badge models?

Gretsch made just one kind of drum (using shells they subcontracted from Jasper) in various sizes. Like Ludwig the outfit names are just that, marketing names for various combinations of those drums....

Re: Correct width and finish for Keystone Ludwig Bass Hoops

Hoops were originally painted in lacquer. They did not polish the finish which resulted in a satin look. I still use spray can lacquer when redoing hoops. You can still find real lacquer in spray...

Re: Ludwig Standard

That's a cool standard set in the most desirable sizes. The new spurs are a bit of a bummer from the collectible standpoint but no doubt an improvement as far as real world gigging. The tom holder...

Re: Old Ludwig’s

Re: Is Anyone Still Using This Forum?

Still look at it once a day. I'll post if I see something worth commenting on. I don't start many threads here, mostly just respond to other people's questions when I think I can help.

Re: Vintage Ludiwg lugs mix andmatch??? nickel

I'd have to agree with Bun. Maybe put together by mistake (brand new nickel isn't that far off from chrome in appearance ) but otherwise unlikely. Always possible that a music store put them together...

Re: Ludwig Standards with Resocoat and date stamps?

Appears to be Bronze Strata, which is one of the harder Strata finishes to find.

Re: Ludwig Standards with Resocoat and date stamps?

Early Standards had white resocoat interiors. At least the first few months of production.

Re: Rogers "Butterfly" Wing screw sizes?

Any of those should be available at any full line hardware store so you could buy a short bolt in each of those sizes (for very little $) and then use those to determine which is the size you need.

Re: Rogers "Butterfly" Wing screw sizes?

Almost certainly 1/4-20 thread. I know some of my Rogers stands use a bigger thread which I believe is 5/16-24 (might be 5/16ths-18). The next size up is 3/8th-16 or 24. It pretty much has to be one...

Re: Playing (preying) on the nostalgia factor........

I think what happened in this case was Ludwig saw that Gary Astridge was able to sell his Ringo snare copies for $15,000 apiece. Other than the throw off and not being signed on the interior by Ringo...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

Just a theory of course but the switching back and forth between clear and granitone interiors may have been based on the grade of wood Ludwig had available at a given time. Nice looking maple would...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

During the 3 ply era Ludwig only made one type of drum shell that was used for everything. It doesn't matter if you call them "classics" or "Super Classics" they were all the same (or at least...
