Re: Need info on this Ludwig kit please...

Ludwig did (and still does) keep all of their older hardware available for special orders, so while the Modular mount was the most common, they'd build a kit with the Classic mount if asked. That's...

Re: Need info on this Ludwig kit please...

If it's an '89 kit (and I don't see anything that makes me think otherwise) then they'ed either be 6 ply Classic maple/poplar shells or 4 ply Super Classic maple/poplar shells.

At first glance the...

Re: Help me choose which thread to read about which kit to buy

It helps to know at least a little about what you want from a kit, your budget, and your intended playing situation before getting too far into asking opinions or starting "which is best" kinds of...

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

If you want something versatile and American made is a consideration I'd suggest Ludwig Classic Maple.

However, I'd suggest holding off until you actually get started at school. Spending over...

Re: Help me find a good Drum Kit

The PDP Mainstage kit I saw was junk so I wouldn't spend anything on one. The Imperialstar kits are "good for the price" and are pretty solidly built though as mentioned the included cymbals aren't...

Re: Looking for solid value kit on a $1500-$1700 budget.

Gotcha!

I'd look at a solid mid-level kit (Mapex Meridian/Tama Silverstar/Yamaha Stage Custom) to free up some room in the budget for better quality cymbals.

At least the markup in drum...

Re: Looking for solid value kit on a $1500-$1700 budget.

I agree; the 3rd and 4th kits are insanely priced. The Mars Pro was probably $700 new, and the Meridian Maple kits are getting blown out for about $600 brand new right now.

If truly looking at a...

Re: Tips for learning 7/8 time?

I agree that the easiest way to learn (and play) odd times is to play to the melody or bass line. Also, the subdivision (how the two and threes in the pattern fall) is going to be determined by that...

Re: Need help identifying exact model of this starclassic snare please

Respectfully disagree. The G Maple models had brushed nickle hardware, a different throwoff, abalone inlay, and decal badge.

Re: Need help identifying exact model of this starclassic snare please

The badge, throw off, and finish points to it being a newer Starclassic Performer B/B.

Re: My First Ludwig Acrolite

Nice drum!

Acrolites (like all metal Ludwig snares) can handle a pretty wide range of tuning, but new heads would probably help dial in a better low tuning, as would a little Moongel.

Re: Best Maple Drumkit around $1000

Agreed. PDP Concept, Gretsch Catalina, Mapex Meridian...All maple, all right around $1000, all good quality.

Which one has the color you want? 'Cause essentially everything else is going to be...

Re: The matching snare

The metal/matching snare seems to come and go with trends in the industry. Same as the 5" or 6.5" depth. When I got into drumming in the 80s it seemed like most "cool" kits came with a 6.5" deep...

Re: What's the better option: new or used drum kit?

If you're shopping used in the pro-level range bearing edges shouldn't be an issue unless you're looking at something really vintage or the rest of the kit looks especially abused. You could also...

Re: Restoring WFL 15x8 Snare - need advice on snare wires

Taking a quick look at Interstate Music shows both Puresound and Fat Cat make 15" wires. I've used both brands and I personally don't hear the $10 difference in price, so I'd recommend the Fat Cats....

Re: Mystery Ludwigs

Interesting batch of drums.

None of the hardware on the small snare looks like Ludwig equipment.

The marching snare looks like it is a Ludwig, but has had the throw off changed.

The bass...

Re: Mapex Pro M vs Mapex Saturn

I'd go for the Saturn. It's just a better kit (assuming it's in good condition) and the price seems fair.

Re: SuperSensitive get snares OFF?

I've had luck by simply not moving the lever all the way down as far as it will go. There's a middle ground between all the way on and all the way off where the snares are off the head well enough...

Re: a little help with this super sensitive please?

Pretty sure you need to drill for both butt plate holes, and one throw off hole assuming a P-85/P-32 pairing.

Tama's always been shy about doing a mid-level maple kit, but perhaps this limited edition is to test the waters for a production kit down the road.

As for the original post, I think if the price,...
