Re: Ever seen Stainless steel Supraphonics?

There is more than one type of stainless steel and one of the types does attract a magnet, but generally most commonly known stainless steel products won't hold a magnet. The Ludwig snares do present...

Re: Ever seen Stainless steel Supraphonics?

Definitely not an LM300. It has imperial lugs, an internal dampener, and the P85 and P33 that only fits the supra... Only with a steel shell.

Re: Ever seen Stainless steel Supraphonics?

True but the highly sought after brass models from the 60's that had a seam have the Ludwig Mojo too and still sound great.

Re: Ever seen Stainless steel Supraphonics?

I spoke to a drum guy who has a multitude of drum knowledge and he says that he has seen stainless steel supras from Ludwig that weren't just modded steel shells. He also says that Ludwig admits that...

Re: Ludwig Snare help needed. Come on Ludwig Gurus.

I was using a large fridge magnet and it wasn't sticking in the middle, but when I took it to a drum friend with extensive drum knowledge, we used a small circular magnet and it stuck. He says that...

Ever seen Stainless steel Supraphonics?

I was doing research on Supras and I saw a few people saying that there were some steel Supras that were made and may still be floating around. I also talked to a very dependable drum guy who also...

Re: Ludwig Snare help needed. Come on Ludwig Gurus.

I was also told by a Ludwig guy that this could be a shell from a heavy brass seamed snare called a Super Ludwig that was made in the early 60's and earlier... Or it could be an aftermarket C.O.B....

Ludwig Snare help needed. Come on Ludwig Gurus.

I saw a snare on Guitar Center's online site listed as a 5x14 SupraLite but in the pic it had Imperial Lugs, a P-85, an internal dampener and the P33 butt plate. It also has a large Monroe Keystone...

Re: Yamaha 8000 Series

Re: Black Beauty Head Selection?

I went with a Coated Ambassador and it sounds superb! When this wears out, I will try an AmbassadorX or X14.

Yamaha 8000 Series

I just picked up a Yamaha 8000 kit and it blows me away! The shell is birch/mahogany and this kit was just under the Recording Custom in the early 80's when they were produced. They sound amazing!...

Re: DW drums being "Overpriced"

What I've noticed is that some people just dislike them and that they will grab hold of anything (valid or not) that supports their dislike for the company. They are competitively priced with many...

Re: NDD Take 2 Yamaha Again.... YD9000 this time.

Gorgeous kit. I have a Yamaha 8000 series (Just below the 9000 series) in the same white color on layaway at Guitar Center and it too is gorgeous. I can't wait to get it home.

Re: My $100 drum set

I used to have a set of PDP FS drums with a brown lacquer fade that sounded great. It had a 12 up with a 16 down and a 22 virgin kick. I got it for super cheap and should have kept that kit.

Re: My "new to me" DW Collectors

A few years ago, I bought a set exactly like that in Houston at Guitar Center for about $1100. I loved the sound of the kit and the contrast between the 10" and 16" was great in my opinion. I still...

Re: Pork Pie 14x6.5, Black over brass? Anybody?

I used to have one at a studio that I play for and it sounded so good on record. It had more than enough of the sound and mojo of a Black Beauty that we didn't see the need to "upgrade" to one. This...

Re: 14x4?

My Legend Phosphor Bronze 4x14 snare is so versatile. It can cover low and gritty all the way up to high and cracky with choking. It is super sensitive too. I love playing that snare as my main.
