Thanks Tony..another great vid.Those late 70's Black Beautys have become somewhat collectable,and will certainly bring more at resale,than what you originally paid for it.

I would just hang on to it,because it's a great sounding drum...Cheers:)

It does not owe me anything, I bought a Ludwig kit in 1979 for £1000.Kept the snare and sold the rest of the kit 15 years later for £3000.

The first edition reissue BB's were spun brass shells.It wasn't till the mid to late 80's that they started making bronze shelled BB's.Ludwig did so till the early 90's,93 or 94,when they again,started using brass for the BB.

I too, wish they would have offered both brass and bonze shelled drums,although the old(pre 77) 2 piece brass shells,have their own magic.
