Re: Brain fart

Re: Acrolite - Snare Bed?

+ 1.Ludwig as well as Slingerland and some others, used the crimping method on all their metal drums,up to the early 60's or so.They then went to just a gradual ,but wider snare bed.On some drums...

Re: 24" bass drum - 10" main snare, surely not?

Oh my....those toms,and that bass drum......butter.Just beautiful.That snare sounded great also,and had a lot more bottom than I was expecting.I agree that the contrast is a bit too much as a main...

Re: Brain fart

Andy,I think we've all been there.It's like visualizing yourself walking off a cliff,but instead of just stopping,you keep walking.And then....you just keep doing it,over and over.

Nice little one...

Re: Gretsch Broadkasters Vintage Build; Floor Tom Legs Rattle Against Rezo Hoop

I think it's a shame to have to Rube Goldberg a work around,or alter anything, on a brand new 3,000 dollar set of drums.I agree with Tony,totally unacceptable by any standard.On a Made in Taiwan...

Re: Wonder what these "were" before they were painted.

Like as been said said,a mish mash of different MIJ drums,and the ONLY thing Ludwig,is the Blacolite(acro) snare.Nothing even close to a Ludwig jazzette kit except the top rail mount .,Just look at...

Re: 6.5" deep acrolite

Honestly,the 6.5 acros never,were never that cheap.The Acro was only made in 5,and 6.5,never 5.5.The 5" drums were pretty cheap,and some still are,but the rarer 6.5 went for bigger bucks.

Re: vintage snare mystery

Re: Is this a vintage 6.5" X 14" Ludwig Acrolite?

It looks to be an altered 10 lug, supra 402,not an acro.The badge grommet is non original,and looks to have been removed and reinstalled (badly) at some point.A player only I think, but worth 250 for...

Re: Check this out. What is it ?

Half of a set of bongos but the lugs look more Gretsch than Slingerland to me.Slingerland sound king lugs are more rounded than those at the base.The rim and drum head aren't original to the drum...

Re: 5x16 inch (diameter) snare...anyone?

Just a point of information.....the 5 or 5.5 " measurement,is the depth of the drum,not the diameter.

Re: 42 Strand snare wire experiment

You basicly,measure the with of your wires,and the with of your snare beds,to see if the beds are wide enough.Clipping wires isn't going to reduce buzz.To reduce that buzz,try detuning the lugs ,on...
