Re: So what's up with Ludwig 2014

I'll agree that the shell interiors do look very nice. I'm not a big fan of the engineered wood outer veneers though.

Re: So what's up with Ludwig 2014

Is everything American-made, including the lugs, rods, hoops, brackets, legs, spurs, etc.?
Or just the shells?

If only the shells, then that'd be similar to sticking a bunch of Taiwanese-made...

Re: So what's up with Ludwig 2014

My local GC has one on the floor also.

Upon closer examination:

-Bass drum claws are VERY small and cheap looking
-The button badge is stuck on to the shell (does not mount to the inside)...

Re: Snare Suggestions for Corporate Gig

Get yourself a "standard" like a 5x14 Supraphonic or Acrolite. Either one will cover most everything you'll need to play on that gig.

Re: DW Maple/Mahogany shells= Who knows 'em?

I have a Maple/Mahog kit built in Dec 2011. 14x22/9x12/16x16 in Black Ice FinishPly. They can tune in various directions, but seem best tuned lower and fatter.

Re: Musical artists who's death saddened you.

Frank Zappa.
My life goal was to play in his band and when he died, my dream died also.

Re: Any other road rats ever do this?

Fun game: Take any song title with the word "heart" in it, and substitute "butt"

Examples: Owner of a Lonely Butt, My Butt Belongs to Daddy, Buttbreaker, etc.

Great way to pass the time on...

Re: New DW Kit

They sound just great. Lots of low-end (I'm using Evans G2 coateds over G1 clears). I can hit the 14x16 floor tom and it vibrates my seat!

Re: New DW Kit

I love the Vavona Redwood! Thinking about it for a Jazz Series kit. But I notice they're now offering Quilted Redwood, not Vavona. I wonder if they can't get any more Vavona logs...?

Re: New DW Kit

In order of "low-ness", first there's VLT shell configuration, then X-shell, and the lowest being VLX. No extra charge for any of these shell layups. Check out these DW videos with John Good & Neil...

Re: Buddy Rich Memorial Concert 2008 DVD 3 Disc Set

The DVD is worth every penny just to see Tommy Igoe's performance. Absolutely killer.
