Re: Revere snare

Yes they were definitely made by Kent.
There are other models out there that other than the badge the drums are identical to Kent drums.

Re: 28 inch bass drum spurs

As far as SLIDING the spurs may do the trick.

However, if not, don't dispair, just put some HOOK side Velcro on the bottom of your pedal, and it'll stay put on the RUG!! If your pedal doesn't...

Re: Ludwig maple cortex

I doubt you'd find any that would match exactly, cortex finishes were less a wrap, and more a countertop plastic.

Re: Ribbed Aluminum Slingerland Snare

It's most likely NOT brass, it's just a deviation of the No140 aluminum student model. Most likely to put out to compete with the slightly better 8 lug Acrolite offered by Ludwig.

I too HAD an 8...

Walburg and Auge was some bulletproof stuff man!! They were very involved with Ludwig, Rogers and Gretsch, as W&A made LOTS of the hardware for those companies.

One of my personal favorite snare...

Re: Identify Ludwig set?

Yep, 1970's Ludwig Butcher Block CORTEX!!

The reason I make sure to say CORTEX is that stuff isn't your run of the mill plastic wrap. It was actually COUNTER TOP material, and though there might...

Yes, there are DEFINITELY variations, though I've never bothered studying the subtleties. There are those in vintage drum circles that could most likely spot their brand a mile away. But I'm not all...

There was a rash of 6/12 x 14 Acrolites, the story goes they were special ordered for a school system in New York. They usually do pretty well on eBay

There have been a bunch on eBay, and some...

Re: Psychedelic Blue Ludwig Set

I believe the inside stuff is called "granitone" basically, it's a paint. There is most likely 3 ply classic shells underneath. Maple-Poplar-Maple.
It's just a classics set that was made with less...

Yeah, they also made some steel shelled drums. I believe that they USUALLY have the Black and White badges, but it's Ludwig, anything goes!!.

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic shell

That's why that WHOLE sentence is important, weighing it MIGHT be a good way, but with Ludwig, there are inconsistencies in EVERYTHING, so to be SURE it's Brass, just do the file method. If it IS...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic shell

Weight test might be enough, but Ludwig had such varying degrees of standards for things It's nice to be absolutely sure.

Yeah, it would be yellow, or "brass" color metal.

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic shell

I'd say you were correct, it's most likely a Brass shell. You can test it under a lug on a lug bolt hole, just use a small file to see if it's brass.

Silly!! A magnet doesn't stick to brass!!

Re: trying this again. Drum ID.

Most likely, by the large grain in the photos, it's just a generic set from the 1970's. LOTS of kits from them were imported with those same lugs which were made by Pearl.

Re: what kind of kit is this?

From what little I can see, (and it's not much) they're just an imported kit that WISHES it was a Slingerland, and yeah, NOT Rogers either. It doesn't even look like the BAD rogers lugs.

Re: Uncle and color suggestions

those Standard floor toms are on the edge of vintage collectibles. Re-wraping WILL ruin the collectors value of it. The teal was a typical Standard wrap.

Re: boomwhap

They also made some kits with wraps over Vistalite, the white shells I think. Not sure of exactly when, but I know they're out there.
