Re: 1971 Ludwig... opinions?

Hollywood hardware would be relatively easy to find although 1400 cymbal stands can get pretty pricey (Ringo). If you want to go the Big Beat route then the Atlas cymbal stands from that era can be a...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

I thought we'd agreed on "Jazztette" :)

Re: How many 1970's 6.5x14 Black Beauty's made??

They came out around 1977 and continued until sometime in the early 1980s. Like Bun says Ludwig didn't keep sales records, but I'd think a safe estimate would be that they would have sold at least a...

Re: Ludwig B/O Green Sparkle Jazzfest on ebay

You don't see one of those everyday. Looks very nice. B/O badged Jazz Festivals seem somewhat rare in any color. Not impossible to find but it sure seems like by 1969 interest in having a matching...

Re: 1971 Ludwig... opinions?

Snare would have been a Supra, very easy to locate, but yeah, should have one included at that price level.

Re: Question on a 20x18 Ludwig F.T.

Cortex came in longer sheets than standard wrap so they could wrap an 18 or 20" drum with a single piece and just one seam.

I don't see anything hinky here.

Re: 1971 Ludwig... opinions?

Looks Beautiful in the pictures, Not $1750 worth of beautiful but they do appear to be in above average in condition.

I don't wish to condone this sort of pricing but it is your money so if buying...

Re: Ludwig 20x18'' Floor Tom

Normally the wrapped drums of that era were mahogany/poplar/maple but it seems that the bigger floor toms (18 and 20) often have mahogany interiors. Not sure of the reason for that but yours is not...

Re: Ludwig Standard

Beautiful Bronze Strata! It took me a long while to find a snare in that wrap for my collection. That cymbal arm bracket does seem oddly placed, lower than normal.

Those newer spurs are an...

Re: Early 80s Ludwig?

That was the era of the riveted wraps (seam reinforced by a row of small rivets to combat shrinkage) which wasn't a shining moment in Ludwig history, but really they were making great drums at the...

Re: Another Ludwig Standard on CL

Those spurs are an unfortunate mod, and if you want to get real nit picky that's the wrong tom holder on the bass drum, although still a Ludwig. So the center hole was drilled out too. That's a less...

Re: Ludwig Standard on CL

That's probably not an outlandish price due to the wrap. Lemon Strata seems to be one of the more sought after of the Strata finishes which puts them at a premium over the more common ones like blue...

Re: Ludwig Standard on CL

Looks like an Avocado strata bass with two Gold Strata toms.

That seems pretty high. Values for these are on the rise but that set looks pretty beat. Maybe if they were all Avocado but even then...

Re: What's more frustrating...

That's some mighty pretty "transition" Oyster Black.

There's always 2 seams on any drum bigger than 16" that's wrapped in standard drum wrap. Generally they tried to locate those seams near the...

Re: Help dating a Kent kit?

My Kents looked just like that inside. A single ply wrapped over itself. I had a 20 and a 12 that I bought at an auction about 30 years ago. The two Kent drums came along with a Slingerland 14x14 and...

Re: Keystone Badge Club Dates............worth the price?

If those were close to me, and I had the money, I'd consider them. Even at that price. Looks like maybe a mix of nickel and chrome, but might just need some parts polished. The rail appears to all be...

Re: Help dating a Kent kit?

I'd guess that MIJ Kent shells would be typical stencil type luan construction. The USA Kent shells were usually maple. The ones I used to have were actually a single ply of maple wrapped over on...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

Beauties for sure.
What year are those? Early enough in the B/O badge era that they aren't cortex finish. The '75 catalog uses the same picture as they had used since the '71 catalog of natural...

Re: Ludwig Transition Badge "Jazz Fest" value?

That wrap would be the most significant factor. Same drum in same condition in red or blue sparkle or WMP would be a $400-500 drum.

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

How about the Ludwig "Jazztette" ? Just one extra letter, the word is just slightly longer and sounds almost the same.... ;)

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

That could be a sweet deal for someone, although the large lugs and the muffler placement on the 12", as well as the color, don't quite fit with the early 70's birthdate the seller is stating.
