Re: Ludwig Speed King 2020 Reissue question.

I feel like that's the worst place in the world to put a key holder.

Re: Just for fun!

That's not the first time I've seen questionable things from that guy.
They're definitely a good place to avoid.

Re: I Want to Play Better

The thing that helped me the most, I feel, was rudiments.
I took everything else away and just concentrated on playing the rudiments.

Nobody has brought this up yet huh? All of Gene's stuff?

Re: Old Man Rant: How hard is it to spell cymbal?

Is now a good time to bring up how much it kills me that people can't say/spell/type out Slingerland or Ludwig?
Is it that difficult?

Re: PureSound problems??

I'll cast a vote for not liking them. I just don't.
Not saying they're a bad product, they're just not my thing.

1 1/4" Nickle plated Ludwig tube lug

Does anyone have a nickle 1 1/4" Ludwig tube lug for a 30's 4 x 14 snare?

Beautiful drum!
I would assume by "Imitators" they meant, "The competition."
