Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

I haven't had that much experience with granitone painted drums but I'd suspect that the arrival of granitone signaled the use of mahogany on the inner plies again on some drums with the granitone...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

I was referencing the late 60s early 70s wrapped drums with the clear maple interiors. Early 60s wrapped drums are almost always mahogany/poplar/mahogany, although there are exceptions with some...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

I'd just use a damp rag with perhaps a mild solution of dish soap for the interiors. Maybe Windex on something stubborn. Be careful, if you have any surviving factory date stamps inside you can wash...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Every clear maple interior, wrapped 3 ply Ludwig I own or have examined closely has a mahogany exterior ply. Mahogany works great for this due to it's porous nature as it gives the wrap glue a better...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Almost all wrapped 3 ply Ludwig shells with the clear maple interiors have an outer ply of mahogany, so the layup (outside to inside) is mahogany/poplar/maple. There are exceptions with maple on the...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Ludwig still makes the bracket that is missing on the bass drum (cymbal arm holder) so that is an...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

Some shells never got stamped at the factory and also the date stamps are very easy to "erase" if someone cleans the inside of a drum. A misplaced shot of windex and it's eradicated.

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

You definitely need to inspect them before you can make a realistic offer. If that snare were brass (which I don't think it is) it's worth quite a bit on it's own, up to around a grand...if it isn't...

Re: Vintage Ludwig deal - Need help!

If a keystone badged Supra has a serial number it's almost 99.99% going to have a Ludalloy (aluminum) shell. I think the "brass" you're seeing is just some gunk on the shell, what I see on the lower...
