Default Re: Any Leedy & Ludwig experts?

Here are some pics of the numbers...




Like I wrote the larger numbers are slight and hard to see but they come out in a couple of the pics.

Where did you get the idea that the "Reliance "was made, just for schools ?

From the Leedy & Ludwig catalog itself. To quote the catalog, " 5 x 14 for school and dance orchestras"

You seem to have proved my point. (Please post some photos of your snare. I bet it would look great in the drumset of a professional Dance Orchestra).

I'm confused are you tryin' to make a point or just being... ?

I wrote that too bad they just marketed the snares for schools when (and I use mine for reference) it is a pretty decent snare with a great sound.

Thats all

your drum like a lot of other snare drum's had this distinction, It's just really a certain price point drum as they are today.It's not that your snare drum is not a pro instrument it is. It was made for a certain market of the time which where Schools and students. The Ludwig acrolite certainly is in this very same category, but yet look at the rave reviews the acrolite receives all the time. Play your drum and enjoy it, it's a keeper.

In general, all the separates the student models from the higher-end stuff is the bells and whistles. It's all quality equipment, and the best part is that you can usually pick up vintage student drums at a very good price. So, yes, play your drum and enjoy it!
That is what I found too. Vintage student drums or school drums & percussion equipment wasn't always the prettiest of the gang but they were made too last (age and taking a beating) and most have great sound.
