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...

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

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.

Re: Soliciting opinions on lug/hardware finishes........

I believe DFD sells satin finish hardware too. Also, it might depend on how the badges looked with the respective hardware.
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.

I just heard that Drum Center of Portsmouth is offering to remove the new Sabian logos from sold cymbals if the customer requests it.

Re: Is Sabian Serious was this new logo?

That does look bad and looks like something a kid would doodle/sketch in class. Doesn't look very professional or esteemed.

Re: Ludwig Jazz Fest Reissue

Heard it in a podcast with Ludwig's Eastern Director of Sales on youtube- The Drum Shuffle.
I'm sure pics will be up tomorrow after the first day of NAMM.
