Cool! Glad to read this. I'm a guitar player of 50 yrs and took up drums about 11 years ago and was lucky to meet and get coached by the VDF's Purdie Shuffle.

Re: My latest acquisition

I like them a lot. Are they mahogany shells? Finish is odd which for me is cool but I wouldn't know what to do with the second rack tom, Never played a kit with two of them.

Re: Need Help Relacquer Vintage Grestch Drumset

I know you didn't ask but those nicks and chips etc. are part of the history of the set and part of your history with it. Maybe give it a good clean and shine, I bet it would look outstanding.

Re: Unconventional Drum Set

Very cool. How deep is the bass drum? Looks like it has some depth while other on line pics look like just a rim and head.

Re: SoCal Treasure

Those drums are so beautiful. A 3000 mile road trip doesn't seem too far. Is that a "stingray" finish? Sizes?

Re: Original WMP bought new at plant

I'd be interested in one of the bass drums if you decide to break it up. It does make a couple really nice kits.

Hey Brother. I can't believe the Ludwigs didn't sell yet as great as they sound. Hope somebody grabs 'em before I sell something to pick them up.

Re: 70's Ludwig Vistalite restoration

Beautiful job!
Instead of looking for matching floor toms, I'd look for some red or blue to mix it up a bit and still match. Plus it wouldn't be so "candy cane-ish". Still cool drums.

Re: Purdie Shuffle info

Yes. I talked to him yesterday and he said they were giving him some stuff to make everyday chores easier and kicking him loose today. I'm sure he'll be checking in here soon.

Re: Acrylic shell - drilling?

As stated it's VERY easy to crack/ruin a piece if caution is not used. Follow advice already posted and (I would) search "drilling acrylics"). Likely a few utube videos showing technique. Good Luck.

Re: Gretsch 4105 6 lug aluminum questions

Never had an issue with them and I doubt that you would hear a big difference with say 20 wires once a Bass and a guitar or 2 start playing.
