Re: Slingerland 5 ply

Someone on here also mentioned that the smaller concert Tom's were only available in 5ply.
I have the "pop" outfit from about 1972 with concert Tom's in 3 ply and the bass drum is 5 ply.

Re: Another Ludwig Date Question

But it is possible that drums could have been sitting around in the Ludwig factory? Built in 75 or earlier?

Mystery kit picture from the Internet

Found this silly pic on an FB page and while the subject matter is really not about the drums, I couldn’t figure out what brand these are!
Cool half tube lugs. Maybe European?

Re: 1967 Ludwig “breakbeats beater”

Wood hoops would put the cost too high, I’m still looking for a 14x22” bass drum with the double tom mount which will cost plenty.
But you are right that would look really cool.

I can also use...

Re: 1967 Ludwig “breakbeats beater”

Whomever invented Ludwig’s tom/floortom/cymbal holder/spur bracket deserves the credit.

1967 Ludwig “breakbeats beater”

1 have a Frankenstein 1967 Hollywood set sans the bass drum but I also have been looking at all of these new “mini” kits. Every company is putting out 18”, 16” and even 14” bass drum sets with 10”...

Re: But is it selling?

I think the hard truth is that musical instruments in general aren't selling like they used to. The genX'ers were really the last big jolt for the industry. All those guys like me that grew up...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Club Date Bass Drum Spurs

If you gave the top hat part you can go to your local hardware store and buy stainless steel rods, put rubber feet on them and call it a day.

Re: Rochefort Drums

Yeah that kit isn't vintage yet, add the hardware. Decades from now some guy will be on a forum asking "is this factory?"

Another easy lazy susan trick is a heavy duty hi hat stand. Drill a hole in a pice of plywood the size of the sleeve that protects your bottom cymbal and secure it with a hi hat clutch. Of course you...

Re: Ludwig drumkit

Taiwanese era rocker kit.
Pass on it.
Everyone refers to the 7/8" pipe mounts as "pearl style" USA rocker II's would have 9.5mm L arms and the brackets would match the floortom brackets.

Re: Sonor Signature Bubinga

I worked at a music store in 94 and a guy ordered a 10/12/13/14/16/22 but it was a gloss finish. As I recall maple with bubbinga strips sewn together for the exterior/interior. Somewhere around...

No current Frankenstein kits. Had enough of that in my youth.

I was under the impression that the jazz festival was 5" and the Barrett deems was 5 1/2" after a while you'd get a mix of shells and whatever throw offs and butts they had lying around.

This is all fine and dandy but how about just an eight lug 5.5x14 3ply poplar/mahogany shell with a p-85 and knob tone control?
That way they could actually make money by selling a lot of drums at a...

Re: Slingerland 3ply shells in smaller sizes?

That's too funny. I was looking at a set of concert toms on eBay in 10/12/13/14 and only the 10" was 5 ply. It kinda reminds me of when Gretsch only had triple flanged hoops for their smaller toms.

Slingerland 3ply shells in smaller sizes?

Hello, I have recently acquired a 70's Slingerland concert tom "pop" outfit (12/13/16/22 3ply shells) and have been looking at adding possibly some smaller toms (8" & 10")
Is it my imagination or...
