Cool, this is getting interesting. Here's a couple pics of the Jammin Sam's wrap that Jerry (Drumjinx), wrapped his Blaemire kits in.

How much did that set of 5 cost you? Do you like them? I have a kit I'm finishing restoring right now with 2 Keystone (kick, floor)and 2 b/o badges (12 & 13" toms). I'm considering switching badges to all the same resto badges?. At least they'd all be kind of the same then...

I gave $75 for this at a garage sale along with 2 vintage 14" zildjian hats and a 20" slingy bass drum. The slingy bass drum has been painted. it looks like it has some sort of blue pearl under the red paint. I recently bought a 24" ludwig silver sparkle bass shell and 3 silver sparkle concert toms I am planning on addin to my 20" silver sparkle double bass kit which has 6 toms already. I had already found most of the lugs, spurs, tom mount etc.... I am going to just use those on this kit and go back to the silver sparkle later.

Default Re: Converting Ludwig Standard to Luddy Classic

Ok Y'all I finally got something done on my shells. I sanded all the excess glue off of the shells and filled the very few small places the wrap took wood with.
I have been inventorying parts for a few days too. I ended up takin all the oem luddy t's and claws off of my kids bass drum. I put some back on the kids bass off of 16" 1st act bass drum I bought at a pawn shop for $5, then I found some more claws in my tension rod orginizer, and I know where some more are also. I put some on a royce drum kit I gave my nephew. Im gonna go over there and swap them out asap. I have a bunch of large classic lugs.
I got my wrap samples from Sam. Can't decide.....This morn I cleaned out my drum heads and gave 30 away on craigslist. I also hooked my P.A. up to my jambox/ipod cradle!

I say go with citrus mod.....why? How many of those do you see compared to psychedelic red and mod orange lately? Keep in mind though....there is a reason that citrus mod is the rarest of the rare......

Personally, I do like the mod orange color the best, but.....as I said above, I'd go for the citrus mod just because...

You just gonna leave me hangin here?
I emailed oldkentuckydrums this; Hi there,
I just wanted to tell you how much I love these badges, especially the bonus one you gave me. I guess this must be an omen that one more drum should go with this kit.
just kidding, however you did send me 6 badges.
Do you need me to send it back to you?
Why Citrus????????????????
