Re: Decisions Decisions

You're in central Texas, right? Is it a local shop?

Re: Decisions Decisions

I believe that 12x8 has classic lugs on it. The gap between the top and bottom lugs is too small. It should look like the drum on the left. If that's the case there will be anywhere from 12 to 24...

Re: Superficial Drum Pet Peeves

I hate seeing modern hardware with a vintage kit. There's nothing worse than seeing a beautiful Downbeat set up with double-braced Pearl stands that weigh 10 pounds.

I also hate when people put...

Re: Snare Identification

Might be one of these. I wonder what the value would be without the original top hoop and in average condition.

Snare Identification

What do y'all think this is? Does it ring any bells for anyone? The owner thinks it's a Ludwig but I don't know myself. Hoping to get better pictures sent to me but it doesn't look promising.

Re: Vintage Ludwig Kit 3 ply? Help?

I'd say it's all but certain. There are even Keystone kits with the curved spurs, but there's of course always crossover. Still, I'm sure someone's seen a '60s stamped kit with curved spurs.

Re: Ludwig snare input please

I'm not too familiar with Ludwig models outside of the Supra, Acro, Jazzfest and Pioneer... but there seems to be a lot of fishiness going on with this drum.

Re: Slingerland kit age/value?

You'll need to post photos of the kit. Nice photos of each individual drum with close ups of the badges and damaged areas is best. Here's a good example of the kind of photos to take.

Re: Calling all 70's Ludwig Shell Experts

The grommet on that badge looks a little too big, but it's hard to tell since the photo is out of focus. Not having a serial number is odd for round badges. They might be reproduction badges.

Re: Help identify and value please.

I was unable to post pictures earlier today. It's a problem with the website and not a user error.

Also, new members always fail to post pictures but it's no big deal.

Seller didn't post any pictures but he emailed them to me. He's asking $200.

Wish this add had been up when I was in Austin over the weekend!

Re: Sonor Hilite Black Diamond Drum Set Price

Ben hasn't been on the forum since August 2012. Unless he receives an email when someone posts on his threads or quotes his post it's a safe bet he is not going to respond.

Re: What would make this kit worth $4000???

Supposing he's a real seller, reality's probably catching up to him. I told him by the looks of the floor tom his asking price is probably $4,100 too high.

He says they used to belong to Ringo. ...

Re: What would make this kit worth $4000???

Just told me the sizes are 12, 16, 20. I wonder if he actually has drums or if he Googled what sizes they might be.

He also told me they've rarely been played since he bought them.
