Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Today I checked the hardware that came with my Ludwig kit. The hi-hat stand and bass drum pedal are more modern (check the first posts, they are maybe 80's/90's) and I plan to sell them. By the way,...

Hi. Thanks for your reply. The bass drum cymbal mount and bracket are the only parts are missing. I will try to find a replacement, but for now I have a bracket from a Vistalite, that is waiting for...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Hi. Thank you for your replies. I did the magnet test but it didn't stick. I think the magnet wouldn't stick to copper too. Anyway, it seems to be a 14"x5" Supra (aluminium). I will post more photos...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Hi, I'm the OP. Just to say I paid 850 for the kit with a 14x5 Supra and some hardware (not in photo). I hesitated too, but maybe you don't know how hard is too find a kit like this in my country. At...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Hi. Thanks for your tip. I'm thinking about it. The inside wood ply isn't a problem, it will come back to place. I don't know what to do outside. The wrap is still there, maybe I can pull it out and...
