Re: Vintage Ludwig Club Date Kit Wrapped In Gold Strata

I saw this kit and was wondering what was going on. Love the wrap and have most of the colors in my snare collection but it just doesn’t seem to fit unless of course you want a Frankenstein kit. IMHO

Re: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Could not agree more ! And if there is an empty spot on the rack it means it has to get filled in my book.

Re: Ludwig Standard

JR
You did great. If you can grab the snare later I would. They are hard to find. I collect the Strata snares and they are great. Good luck with it. I have a kit in the Red Ruby Strata and love it.
