Re: Where can I find another lug like this?

Actually, Rogers Beavertail snare lugs are 1-15/16" center-to-center. Also, my guess for the spacing of the OP's drum is at least 2", possibly more.

Re: Wanted Sky Blue Marine Pearl wrap

The post by VDF member Charley Braun was over 6 years ago. Since he only had a total of 5 posts, I would think that he's no longer on the forum and has moved on!

That being said, I believe this...

Re: Beware....Jim Petty's Email Has Been Hacked

I received the same email a few days ago! The English seemed a bit odd to me, so rather than replying, I gave Jim a call. He confirmed that his email had been hacked and was happy to hear that I did...

Re: Identification of snare with ludwig parts

I seriously doubt the shells would be African mahogany. Most likely lauan. The other term for this is Phillipine Mahogany. Not the best wood for shells. Still, the 6-ply shells...

Re: Identification of snare with ludwig parts

Looking at this again, I'm also seeing the same thing. I've just never seen MIJ or MIT lugs that resembled the Standard/Rocker lugs before! See something new every day!

Re: Identification of snare with ludwig parts

Hi sullington!

The shell appears to be 6-ply mahogany, possibly an MIJ. I have a few MIJ snare drums with the same type of shell and gray interior. The lugs are Ludwig Standard. From the one...

Re: MIJ "Frankenclubdate" Bop Kit

Completely forgot that my 1967 Slingerland kit has the Maxwell rail with the long spade attachment. You can see that there is still extra length available to get the tom higher. However, my bass drum...

Hi V!

You did an excellent job with this kit! I really like the contrast of the clear maple bass drum hoops and the red sparkle inlays, instead of the typical black hoops. In regards to the...
