Re: Sonor Teardrop

Awesome kit! I have been in love with the old Teardrops since I got my first set a few years back. Original finish and actually looks good. I believe these are earlier teardrops that were 3 ply and...

I still have my 1964 Champagne Sparkle. No DB snare though. First vintage kit I ever scored and restored!

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Ludwig Drums

Not sure what Sonors Bunny had in the 60's but my late 60's 6 ply Teardrops are amazing and I think the hardware is better then any of the other manufacturers at the time except for maybe Rogers. Out...

In all my years of collecting and restoring this is a new one. Anyone ever seen something like this before? Think it is a re-wrap or custom order? Can't imagine someone going through the process of...

Re: Found a really rare but really mangled Leedy Kit today

Thanks for the reply Leedy! I actually have a pair of Luddy nickel disappearing spurs that are pretty close to the same thing and may just pop those on. That big hole will be a challenge I am not...

Re: Found a really rare but really mangled Leedy Kit today

Funny you say that Johnny cuz I swore of restoring any more kits because I ran outta time and space. I got roped in because in all my years of rescuing these bad boys I never came across an 18 inch...

Re: Did Ludwig Ever Have A Catalog Kit in the 60's of 13, 14, 16, 18 24?

Thanks! Has anyone ever seen a 60's kit in a Pro Beat Config catalogued anywhere or would that have been a special order? I rarely see Keystone 24 Kicks and 18 inch Floors

Did Ludwig Ever Have A Catalog Kit in the 60's of 13, 14, 16, 18 24?

I recently met someone who is restoring a late 60's Keystone Badge kit in these sizes and I was trying to look up that configuration in the catalogs and couldn't find anything. Definitely sold as a...

Re: Help - Ludwig Gold Sparkle / Pearl - 60's?

The tom looks like a painted Ludwig from that interior shot. Hard to tell for sure from just the one pic though. Not sure about the wood snare but the metal one is a Rogers 380/360 made by Yamaha....

Re: Crazy Custom 16 inch Club Date Floor Tom Questions

It does have an edge but it looks flat from the angle and stain. It is a homemade stain job.

So I picked this drum up for $40 the other day hoping it was an Uber Rare 16 inch Club Date Floor Tom and of course it wasn't. I snagged it anyway because it has some cool vintage parts and still...

Slingerland?

Saw these pop up locally and was considering the purchase. The price is nice but there has obviously been some serious work done. What are you guys seeing here? Do you think the snare has been cut...

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

Good point KC. The interior in that last pic you just posted looks like the same interior paint as my floor tom pictured. It's almost a flat matte grey versus granitone

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

Yeah. The kit was born together and they are all Gold Strata Wrap. Definitely a mahogany interior on the kick. The kick was originally a granitone that matched the rack and snare. The more common...

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

Thanks again KC. So it is a bit of an out lier that it has a mahogany interior. Has anyone refinished the interior of a Luddy standard and found a granitone paint that matched? or should I just leave...

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

Awesome info KC! Are all of the clear interiors maple? And are all the granitone interiors the same or are they varied?

Re: Ludwig Standard Granitone Questions

Anyone know what paint is a good match for the more widely used granitone on the 13 inch tom so I can use it to finish the kick?
