Re: Is this a Ludwig?

Re: Are vintage drums all they can be?

I like them all!
Except the stupid ones... :)
New Yammies and some DW I've heard, as well as the really small very good custom builders (Ayotte, Brady, etc) are excellent, but my old drums have a...

Re: Need help pricing and dating a Ludwig snare

pretty sure that's the Hammered Bronze SupraPhonic. My regular online retailer has those at $465 for the 5x14. Looks like PureSound snare wires, too. Those are an extra $35. I'd keep the drum! ...

Re: Dixie Snare Help

That's what some call a stencil drum... really a term stolen from early 20th century piano marketing. One company makes a whole bunch of low-mid range product with no name and sells them to...

Re: please help identify these ludwigs

the thing that's throwing me off is the white paint in the bass drum and not in the toms. That makes me think the toms are older, not newer. It's not hard to get under the bigger badge with a razor...

What in the flippity-blastin' heck?
Those look like WFL's from the 50s! why would someone try to disquise them as 70s era drums? Maybe someone out there actually preferred the parallelogram badge...

Re: $4 Ludwig Snare

Re: Gretsch Round Badge strainer questions...

I was thinking a micro would have been about right. But the weird thing is that there is the lighting with no other holes around it... the butt side has the 6 extra holes... the only thing I can...

Re: Ludwig snare

just so you know... Ludwig was infamous for assigning serial numbers in a completely nonsensical fashion. A better description could tell more. What's the badge look like. Heck, what's the drum...

Re: Newbie getting started--round badge snare
