What do you guys make / think of this. 8 lug, possible chrome plated acrolite. Still trying to unravel the mystery. And the people on this forum have been really helpful so far! KO, Bowing

1920's Ludwig and Ludwig bass drum with factory artist painted head signed "Ludwig"
There is a string of modern white Christmas mini-lights to illuminate the
painted image on the inside .

'I know these particular lights are obviously non-original
but the concept of back lighting the image is most likely original
I have read that most of these old bass drums used lighting just to warm the calfskins

Here's my recently acquired late 30s WFL set in sparkling green pearl! I posted this in the "image gallery," but I figured I might as well post them here as well.

Cool drum! I have the same drum with gold hardware and the same painting.

Hello Kurt
Thanks for the reply
I took the liberty of re-posting your bass alongside my own
just to try and compare the details in the two paintings

My '96 kit, 4-ply shells. I bought it used at Guitar Center (sorry) about 3 years ago. It was 12, 13, 16 & 22, like new w/original heads. Date stamp on interiors was 3/96. About a year later, at a different music store (locally owned), i saw what looked like a new 6 1/2" supra. Turns out, it was used, also like new with original heads. And the date stamp was 3/96. I'm thinking that the original owner sold the toms & bass to GC, and the snare to the local store (they're about 2 miles apart). The configuration as a 5-piece corresponds to a kit in the 1994 catalog, with the supra snare. The 12 & 13 toms had RIMS mounts from the factory, with no mounting holes in the shells. I originally had it set up as a 5-piece, but the toms were just too high because of the extra depth. I decided to make it a 4-piece with the 12" tom on the original bass drum mount, but on a floor stand, not on the bass drum, as you can see in the photos. The tom mount fit exactly into the base section of a dw cymbal stand. I put the top tier of the cymbal stand off to the side of that with multi-clamps, which provided better balance for the whole thing.
