Re: Restored Drum Value

In my opinion it lessens the value. It becomes a players kit and that's ok, I just wouldn't expect to recoup the money spent on re-cutting the bearing edges. If edges are bad enough to need...

Re: Ludwig Club Date

Seems like a great trade to me. She's a beaut.

Re: Will My Toms Fit On This Stand?

I'm not much help, but if the rods are too big you can buy the 9.5 mm L-rods separately. For instance:

Re: Least HOF Worthy Bands/Artists

Yes, any band/artist who didn't play rock shouldn't be in the hall of fame.

Re: Another Offer

The 12-in CM tom appears to have micro classic lugs, which were used on Centennial kits, but I could be mistaken due to the angle. Classic Maples would have large or small classic lugs.

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

I'm guilty of being greedy too. I've made low-ball offers on drums, (although with respect), and I've purchased drums at below market prices, but I'm not too bothered by it.

Re: Anyone else get disheartened at all the greed in the vintage drum market?

Perhaps we're talking about the difference between hobbyist and dealer pricing. My belief is that professional sellers typically price their goods in order to stay in business. If they can't make...

Sellers with high prices bring out more sellers and products to the market.

Re: Ludwig Gig

Those look good on stage. Classic Maples sound great behind the kit, but I've found that they sound even better to the audience. 6 ply Ludwigs are like that too in my opinion.

Re: Advice on Mics and Set-up

I like Audix mics for everything but the kick. A seller on ebay, 'anthem-audio', usually has good prices. I believe he's located in the Northwest. Many of the Audix mics are made in Oregon.

Re: Ludwig 75th Anniversary "Eagle" Kit for Sale on Ebay-Big Beat Configuration

Clubdate64 has the dealer's catalog for this year. From looking at one page he posted, the list price for a 5 piece kit was about $2k, which would be about $5k today. I wonder if the catalog has...

Re: Ludwig 75th Anniversary "Eagle" Kit for Sale on Ebay-Big Beat Configuration

If it sells for the price it's at now it would be a steal. The snare drum should be worth the bulk of the price (as of now) and the toms are standard sized.
I don't understand the lack of print...

Dang, that would make things more difficult for a seller of rosewood.

Re: SONOR 8 pc Phonic Series Rosewood in/out 1975 Centennial RARE & EXCELLENT!

I hear ya. It's one thing to discuss prices as we are now, and it's another thing for a buyer to outright insult the seller and probably not a good way to negotiate.

Though not quite the...

Re: SONOR 8 pc Phonic Series Rosewood in/out 1975 Centennial RARE & EXCELLENT!

I like reading the freakout posts. They're hilarious. They sound like they're gonna cry if you don't split up the kit.

Regarding the export fees, etc- hopefully a foreign buyer would go...

Re: Drum Wrap

That wrap is about 9 mil thick. According to Walopus' website, the typical drum wrap is ~20 to 35 mil thick.

Re: What bonding material is used to wrap?

I don't know what Gretsch used, but for what it's worth, I saw a video where Ms. Ann Ross used the 3M 90 spray adhesive. She's wrapped Ludwig's drums since 1986.
Now, she wraps Ludwigs with the...

Re: Ludwig Preserial Chrome on Brass Snare rechrome?

That's a very nice drum. I'd think a re-chrome would hurt the value by a lot.

Are there weld marks on the inside of the hoops? I have a '69 402 with welded hoops, but the weld is only visible...

Re: Ludwig Snare ID Help...

Ebay is what I use for pricing. I think the values given on this site tend to be from a buyer's perspective.

Maybe you could try out a few different pieces before buying hardware...

Re: Original Tone Controls -- Simply Style over Substance?

I've used them on snares for particular songs and a few times on larger floor toms when recording demos. I don't use gels or anything else.

Re: Ludwig Snare Id Help...

Based on the serial, I'd guess 83-84. The strainer doesn't appear to be original to the drum, or at least I've never seen that strainer on a US made Ludwig.

Re: Why Do Ludwig Drums Sound So Good

I always knew about Ludwig's snares, but playing their kicks and toms are what sold me- and that was on a late 70s 6-ply kit. Easy to tune, or at least it was hard to make them sound bad.
