Re: Ludwig Standard Student Kit

Is it a wood shell or is the entire drum metal?

Seems like the "Standard Acrolites" (i.e. the aluminum shell Standard snares) would be more desirable/achieve a higher selling price than a wood...

Please Delete

Admins:

Please delete this post. I ended up keeping them because standard swivel nuts won't fit the lugs.

Thanks.

Re: Superficial Drum Pet Peeves

Hmmm let's see...............

1. Seeing a boom stand set up at a weird angle, like the tilter is the lowest part of the boom arm.

2. Seeing stand tripods extended out as far as they can go. ...

Re: Repairing a bass drum shell

+ 1 on this.

If the thread posts are long enough, get "thick fender washers". Most hardware stores carry them, and they are nice and thick an dwill prevent further damage.

Re: What is this cymbal?

That's hi-hat/marching weight for sure. Those rivet holes are endearingly and haphazardly DIY.

What are you using it for? Probably too heavy for a true crash. Might be a cool effect cymbal if...

Re: Any idea what these cymbals are?

I say brass. Brass seems to tarnish way easier than Bronze, and those are pretty tarnished.

Plus, they look smooth (ie no lathing), and you very seldom see bronze cymbals with no lathing (custom...

Re: Abraxis Made in Italy hi-hats

They have a "Sound Vader" look to them as well.

Also, a hint of Paiste 2002 to their look as well.

Re: Removing the hinge pin at the heel plate on a Speed King foot board

Thanks for the reply.

Mine is older with no clip. Both ends of the pin have a "head" on them that prevents them from pulling out/through. I have a Dremel with cutoff wheels, so I may not try to...

Re: Ludwig Rail Mount

I have an MIJ kit with a rail mount that is identical to the Ludwig clockface like you have, johnny. It kept slipping on me as well.


Not that you necessarily want to do this, but what I did on...

Re: 1968 Ludwig accent appraisal

Interesting that the bass drum has the white paint interior and not the "Granitone" interior that is on almost all the Ludwig Standard Kits.

I know there were a few Standard Series anomalies, like...

Removing the hinge pin at the heel plate on a Speed King foot board

Greetings,

I mentioned in another thread that I received a Speed King today that I purchased online. It's in pretty poor shape, but I can resurrect it, and it was only $20. As is common, the...

Re: Not Your Usual Speed King Question

Ironically, I just got a Speed King in the mail today and that piece was also broken on mine. I am going to try a thin yet stiff piece of plastic for this part. I have a plastic paint edger that is...

Re: WTB vintage Ludwig cymbal L-arm (lower L part)

If you can't find one, I have used in this in the past:

It's a 9.5 mm (3/8") rod. Just cut off the shortest end of...

These parts will occasionally turn up on ebay as well. You can also try in the "Wanted To Buy" section here on this Forum.

Re: The WMP Has Arrived

Those look fantastic! Just the right amount of "aging" on the wrap. It looks like the bass might be a bit whiter than the two toms.

If you get a chance when changing heads, take off a lug on...

Re: Getting the Logo Off

One more thing you could try:

Drum Factory Direct sells "blank" heads (no logos) in Coated, Clear, Smooth White and Black. And they are very inexpensive. If you plan to use your own muffling...

Re: DW BD mount L cymbal arm

What kind of L arm does the DW bracket accept? 12.7mm (1/2")?

If so, what you could do as an alternative is DW sells L-arms that have a 12.7 mm horizontal part, with the vertical part either in...

Re: Star Sound Cymbals

I think I saw this one on ebay. Is it the one that is heavily tarnished outside on a picnic or patio type table?


I was intrigued as well. Could be great. Could be a klunker. Who knows?

The Pro Mark 5AST Stinger. I noticed they are not on the Pro Mark website anymore. Great sticks. 5A but with a longer taper and arrowhead type tips. Almost...

Agreed! I got one pair in the lot I spoke of above in the initial post. I have chipped it and had some minor (not full) breaks. I have glued it back together, filled it with wood filler, sanded it...

Re: Vintage drum costs

All good info so far.

I've found that Slingerland, for whatever reason, just doesn't bring the same dollars that Ludwig, Gretsch, Camco and Rogers do. Especially recently, the Slingerland market...

Re: Help with identification!!!

The lugs on the bass drum are definitely the Rocker series. There were several iterations of the Rocker Series. I believe these were early/mid 90's. See photos below. That's the badge that came...
