Re: Disappointing Ludwig Price

[QUOTE=Hobbs;423427]Hmm ... the economy.

Re: Ludwig Red Sparkle color all the same???

I've not seen any difference in Ludwig red sparkle since they went to a glitter wrap in the later 1950's.

Re: Slingy experts: Ever see this?

I used to own a WFL snare drum that had at least a half dozen badges on the interior side of the grommet. It was a thin shell drum.....

Re: Something very rare...

OddBall's advice is good, a ***eler can tell. Gold is not as brassy looking as art-gold. It's golden!

Re: Something very rare...

Great looking drum!
Is there a visible date stamp inside the shell?
Are there inserts in the lugs?
It appears to be the later version of "art gold" or is it 24 kt gold?

Re: Ludwig Super sensitive without badge. Help needed!

Not all Super Sensitives had badges, or snare guards. A photo will tell the story.....

Re: Re-wrap or real? Ludwig experts please weigh in

This is the first 60's snare I can recall where the wrap doesn't go all the way to the top of the shell? Or is it just the photos that are "fooling" me?

Re: Mystery 40s kit???

I've seen pre war Rogers drums with Gretsch "rocket lugs".
Did Gretsch make these sets, or Rogers, or W+A?

Re: Qualifications for a Virgin Bass Drum

When I use to order a "virgin" bass drum with spurs, the company referred to it as "virgin top".
The Rogers drum is not a "virgin top", it has a cymbal mount on it.

Re: Old Ludwig snare dating/worth??

Looks like a late 1920's drum. They're desirable in that depth, they didn't make as many as other sizes. It's referred to as a Standard but I'm not sure if that's the actual model name.

Re: Restored Ludwig Jazz Fest snare

They may have measured from the bottom rim of the drum, as opposed to determining the center by measuring from both edges?

Re: WFL jazz festival?

I opined it was a 1963 snare drum. With a round muffler knob I'm probably off by a year or two......oops!

Re: Value for late 30s WFLs

Single tension bass drum, toms with tacked on bottom heads, in need of a refin, my guesstimate would be 2-300 bucks tops.
Like you said; It's a display piece not a player outfit.

Re: My forties Gretsch Broadkasters

If that set was owned by me, I'd have probably signed my name inside each shell by the vent hole. My set looked just like yours!

Re: My forties Gretsch Broadkasters

I saw my name in one of the shells.
I collected the same drums for ten years.
The creamiest best looking white pearl was on my 26-13-6.5x14 outfit.
And they played great!

Re: Leedy & Ludwig parade drum

Possibly a date stamp in the shell, look through the air hole. Four digits, first two are year, second two digits are month.
Also, I've found similar finished drums in 9x13 sizes with a badge that...

Re: Ludwig Mod Orange Concert Toms

FWIW I offered to purchase (via personal message).
Perhaps the message didn't "go through"?
Anyway, offer expires at midnight tonight (Monday) if I don't hear from seller.
