Re: Ludwig Supraphonic -50th year edition

weren't supras made before '64? I know I've seen some with transition badges, but maybe they weren't referred to as supras yet. And, not a fan of this new badge. Give me the good old ugly blue/olive...

Re: Help identifying Mapex snare

definitely older, and from the 90's. Wouldn't know the wood type without seeing the inside. They didn't make cheap models in that size, so it's likely maple or birch.

Re: Premier Resonator snare drum liner?

if it's a "resonator" then it should have the liner, as that's what makes it a "resonator". The snare I played had one, so someone must have taken the chamber out of this one. Honestly, it made the...

Re: Played a Pearl BCX set. Very warm sound for all birch

I always wanted a blx kit, and still do. I noticed they really heavily coated the insides of the shells, which may have had something to do with the focus, and lack of warmth.

Re: Gretsch Renown or Tama Starclassic B+B

that has not been my experience at all. I saw my buddy play last night on his Renowns, and those suckers cut like crazy! I've heard a couple of Silverstars, and they don't cut that well at all from...

Re: Worth $75.00

that pedal is worth more than the kit, provided it's in working condition.

Re: Ludwig Bronze Piccolo - A good buy?

yeah, 3X13 is a real small/minimal shell size, so there won't be a huge difference in the sounds you can get. But, if you can manage to get a bronze supra for 200$, you don't have anything to lose...

Re: Bearing Edge Dressing

I shellac the insides of pretty much all the drums I make. It doesn't really make a huge difference in sound to my ears, but it is always with keller maple shells, so maybe other woods would be...

Re: Pearl Sensitone phosphor bronze snares available again

yeah, I'm disappointed in how expensive the new sensitones are. They probably see people paying 700$ for black beauties, and all the other boutique drums for 1000$ + and figure they'll try their hand...

Re: Ludwig Piccolo Snare - Need A Manufacture Date

yep, just as they did on the last Blackrolites. I don't know what the b/w badge means anymore, as they started out using them on the u.s. made Rockers, then the blackrolites, but I'm assuming these...

Re: What is your opinion of this Billy Cobham review?

ha ha, Cobham is Cobham. That's why I love him- he's loud, busy, and does his own thing. A lot of people used to typical lighter hitting fusions guys probably are turned off by his style, because it...

Re: Ludwig Piccolo Snare - Need A Manufacture Date

naw, this is a recently made drum. I've seen these for sale new in the past 2 years or so, so not from the 80's. Probably no older than 3 to 4 years. It sold for 120$ or so on Musician's Friend, so...

Re: ludwig swivel nut

yeah, the inserts are all pretty much the same size. The only exceptions may be DW's, old Sonors, or certain Premiers.

Re: It's the room not the kit !

it's not just the room, but where you're at in the room, and what's next to you in that room. I've played rooms where if you move your kit a few inches one way, it can change the sound/volume. If...

Re: Opinions on what to do with these old ludwig Classic Maples?

man, those drums had been on ebay for a long time. I remember seeing them on there years ago. I believe that blue sparkle is probably turquoise sparkle, hence the greener look. I think the finish is...

I know exactly what you're talking about. A lot of double pedals are configured the same way, and will give you this same issue. However, Pearl's pedals are set up differently, and don't have this...

Re: How do you stabilize a virgin bass drum that jumps up and down?

yes, those spikes are really what keep the thing from moving. I guarantee that was part of your problem. Just put the rubber feet on before you put it back in the case, and you'll be fine. That's...

Re: Ludwig Transition / WFL

check on ebay religiously. You've actually got the most difficult drum to get from that era, which is the 18" floor tom. Either that, or the 14X10, which I don't think was even made till the later...

Re: How do you stabilize a virgin bass drum that jumps up and down?

sounds like it's a pedal issue. You're probably missing a piece of rubber on part of the clamp, and the thing can't grip the hoop properly, or the clamp itself could be defective. Try another pedal ...

Re: Deal of a lifetime or ripped off for being gullable

This kit is from the new Sonor Farce 2014 series. You know, the ones made from Keller shells by someone who "used" to work at Sonor, but got fired after a couple of days, lol.

Re: Yamaha Color Mixing? Cherry Wood (RC) and Cranberry Red (SC)
