Re: Different camps of drum fanciers

Hey, guys!
I've FINALLY got my old Ludwig 12 X 15 cow marching snare sounding really good! Now I want to pamper it a bit. I've already installed brass plated t-rods and sleeve washers along...

Re: Ludwig Silver Sparkle Drums

Okay, johnnyringo!
Do you have any other things you might want to sell? Sticks? Lugs? Strainers, Heads, T-Rods, etc.? If you auctioned off some of these items, our members might just be very...

Re: Dewey Snare Drum Question

ssoccer,
Indeed this drum may in all likelihood be an MIJ, I would not discard it as trash. Ten lugs, although not rare in MIJ drums is nevertheless NOT the norm. Clean it up. Give it a proper...

Re: Marching Drum Heads?

I don't know why I did this, but I did! Just when I had the old marcher sounding good, I decided to try the original "wires" with the but and classic strainer. Bad move!! No matter what I try, I...

Re: Ludwg External Snare Drum Mufflers?

Thanks, John. I have all of those external dampers, but because of the wooden hoops, the only one that fits is the old Tama. It helps, but not much. I'll eventually figure this out (hopefully). In...
