Re: 1967 Ludwig “breakbeats beater”

Wood hoops would put the cost too high, I’m still looking for a 14x22” bass drum with the double tom mount which will cost plenty.
But you are right that would look really cool.

I can also use...

Re: 1967 Ludwig “breakbeats beater”

Whomever invented Ludwig’s tom/floortom/cymbal holder/spur bracket deserves the credit.

1967 Ludwig “breakbeats beater”

1 have a Frankenstein 1967 Hollywood set sans the bass drum but I also have been looking at all of these new “mini” kits. Every company is putting out 18”, 16” and even 14” bass drum sets with 10”...

Re: But is it selling?

I think the hard truth is that musical instruments in general aren't selling like they used to. The genX'ers were really the last big jolt for the industry. All those guys like me that grew up...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Club Date Bass Drum Spurs

If you gave the top hat part you can go to your local hardware store and buy stainless steel rods, put rubber feet on them and call it a day.

Re: Rochefort Drums

Yeah that kit isn't vintage yet, add the hardware. Decades from now some guy will be on a forum asking "is this factory?"

Re: Black / Gold Duco Finish

Another easy lazy susan trick is a heavy duty hi hat stand. Drill a hole in a pice of plywood the size of the sleeve that protects your bottom cymbal and secure it with a hi hat clutch. Of course you...

Re: Ludwig drumkit

Taiwanese era rocker kit.
Pass on it.
Everyone refers to the 7/8" pipe mounts as "pearl style" USA rocker II's would have 9.5mm L arms and the brackets would match the floortom brackets.

Re: Sonor Signature Bubinga

Wow.
I worked at a music store in 94 and a guy ordered a 10/12/13/14/16/22 but it was a gloss finish. As I recall maple with bubbinga strips sewn together for the exterior/interior. Somewhere around...

Re: Show us your cool Frankenstein kits

Actually in the garage! In California we don't have basements.
The house I grew up in had asbestos shingles with plastic siding over it.
That garage would be 100 degrees in summer and a wet 48 in...

No current Frankenstein kits. Had enough of that in my youth.
Here's my old pearl/maxwin/CB700 that I eventually wrapped in contact paper.
In the background is my brothers Star/Stewart.

Re: Starr Fest

I was under the impression that the jazz festival was 5" and the Barrett deems was 5 1/2" after a while you'd get a mix of shells and whatever throw offs and butts they had lying around.

Re: Starr Fest

This is all fine and dandy but how about just an eight lug 5.5x14 3ply poplar/mahogany shell with a p-85 and knob tone control?
That way they could actually make money by selling a lot of drums at a...

Re: Slingerland 3ply shells in smaller sizes?

That's too funny. I was looking at a set of concert toms on eBay in 10/12/13/14 and only the 10" was 5 ply. It kinda reminds me of when Gretsch only had triple flanged hoops for their smaller toms.

Slingerland 3ply shells in smaller sizes?

Hello, I have recently acquired a 70's Slingerland concert tom "pop" outfit (12/13/16/22 3ply shells) and have been looking at adding possibly some smaller toms (8" & 10")
Is it my imagination or...

Re: Early 90's Tama Rockstar Question

I'm thinking an early version of rockstar. The bass hoops are like what was on imperialstar and swingstar kits. The plain rockstar kits were 10x12 11x13 not the "extras" that you have (11x12 12x13) I...

Diecast hoops!

People in my neck of the woods are trying to sell stencil kits for 300 with no hardware or cymbals!

Re: Ludwig Club Date

Love the sparkling red!
Clubdates are like Chevy novas and ford falcons. Economy models that are more fun than the fullsizes!
If I got rid of everything else I'd probably still keep a clubdate.

I will say on my clubdate 12" tom I cut the original wrap right at the scarf joint and then cut into the wrap with a fine sawblade to get it flat. I ended up basically filing the old wrap down inside...
