Re: Ok, here's another "funny" Jazzette (not)

Re: Ludwig trans. badge COB seam and grommet questions

Re: 22" 50,s hollow logo Zildjy

That 22" trans with that stamp and that weight is something special/desirable in my opinion. I think the price is very justified.

Re: Ludwig Jazzettes

As far as the 12x18 shell, the Gold Coast bass drum debuted in the '63 Supplemental catalog. It was also a 12x18 bass drum.

Re: Ludwig guys, tenor drum, FT, small bass drum, none of the above??

Nice project! 12x17s are some of my faves. Makes a nice floor tom or small bass drum. Neat find. I've got a few but all of mine are center lug.
