Re: Ludwig black beauty 79 / 80 advice

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

In Rick Gier's comprehensive Ludwig dating guide, he lists a interior like these with the serial number of 857643. So it's not too far off of the grid.

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

Beautiful drums! Classic shells. Early 70's with that interior and the three ply shells having reinforcement rings. If it does have a new bass mount, they are interchangeable with the originals. It...

Re: Ludwig 17 inch tenor shell, rims, heads & some hardware

I think the 12" depth would be fine. I have two 17's that are used for this purpose. Both are 12" x 17". They are very responsive and plenty of volume.

Re: Low serial# Ludwig Pioneer, color question

Under the lug should tell the tale. That date stamp is one year prior to my birthday. I have a Club Date tom that is one year after my birthday.
