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

That's the Gold Coast model. Here is the catalog shot. And a real one that Bill Maley also sold.

Re: Ludwig Jazzettes

As far as the 12x18 shell, the Gold Coast bass drum debuted in the '63 Supplemental catalog. It was also a 12x18 bass drum.

Re: Supra Phonic 1965

Nice drums guys! I have owned several '65 Supras that were 100 percent pit free. Most of the '64 Supras that I have had seemed to have real bad pitting. Possible that Ludwig used a different vendor...

Re: Ludwig guys, tenor drum, FT, small bass drum, none of the above??

Nice project! 12x17s are some of my faves. Makes a nice floor tom or small bass drum. Neat find. I've got a few but all of mine are center lug.

Re: 1960's Keystone 6.5x14 superphonic year made????

I have seen the washers go on the other side of the cup washers. It looks a little strange but that is the way they were assembled on the ones that I have run across.

Re: Shell ID?

Mark- I would assume that it would have to be separated like you mention. Not something that I would ever attempt for sure.

Re: Shell ID?

Exterior of the shell certainly appears to have been wrapped at one time. I have a mahogany interior/exterior 12" Club Date tom in which the wrap was removed and pulled from the scarf joint instead...

Re: So Who Built My Kit?

Picked up this very small Norma kit at the Chicago Show a few months ago. Haven't detailed it and got it like I want yet. Been way to busy. Has a great tone to it.

Re: 66 clubdate floor tom legs slip

I've had some success by simply switching the rods to a different mount. The tolerances on some of these are so close that the simple change can actually fix that problem. Memory locks/clamps would...
