Re: Is this really worth $4500?

Sorry ,but there's NO way,.......you can determine that Ludwig made 80 K of those kits.Even Ludwig didn't keep those kind of records.That's dishonest,and mear speculation at best.Ludwig at the time...

Re: What is this?

Looks like a 300 series import with that black knob generic strainer.Welded shell,not US made I believe.Still decent sounding drums.

Re: Need help on the year and value of my TAMA drums

Those are late 70's Imps.Concert toms aren't very desireable,but maybe 2-300 with the right buyer,on a good day.

Re: looking for info...Tama Swingstar

I'd say,late 88,and definately pre 92,when they changed the badge and switched to the Rockstar Ludwig look a like lugs.Decent ,but entry level drums,a step below Rockstars.

Re: psychedelic red wrap

You cold try Jack Lawton,but even if he did have original 68 wrap....it's going to cost major dollars.Might as well look for an orphan from late 68.

Re: Is This John Bonham ???

I dosen't take long to hear that distintive Bonham style and tone.The bass drum work is killer.

Re: Need some advice

It baffles me,why Ludwig made the P-33 ,with a different hole pattern,than the P-32.The P-86 with bolt up to a P-32/P-85 mounting pattern,so that made perfect sense.....so why not the butt plate...

Re: Does a "minting error" make a Ludwig Supraphonic snare more valuable?

Agreed with all the above.Ludwig produced drums with all sorts of anomilies back in the 60's.The upside down G stamp, may have more than likely ,been the result of a liquid lunch.Some drums left the...

Re: 9 Piece Pearl Professional DLX Series

Why don't you just use less drums if smaller is what you want,unless you're refering to the deeper 80's shells.I have a 5 piece DLX kit.Nice drums.I rescued them from some kid who wanted to refinish...

Re: New Tama Sliverstar kits?

True for Yamahas upper end shells,which were made by Sakae,but just about everything else,like stage customs for example,are made in China.

Re: Help identifying snare drum

Those are what's called "crimped snare beds",and are normal on that model snare,as well as other metal shelled snares,of the period.

Re: Help identifying snare drum

Just a point of information.The Festival model snare had a chrome over brass shell,up to the early 70's,.After that,the shell was changed to steel.
