Re: Reinforcing rings

Why do you think they're necessary? And Rogers stopped doing that, in 1978. Ludwig, in 1976. Gretsch, earlier than that. So ..... you're gonna have to be pretty convincing that re-rings are the way...

Re: early 70's Pearl? what else?

Around 1966, Pearl started using the name "Pearl" for their top end kit. They did, however, continue to make drums called Maxwin, CB-700, Stewart, Werco, Ideal, Crest, Revelle, Revere, Lyra,...

Re: New Gretsch 3-ply

It would certainly make sense, for Gretsch to re-introduce the 3 ply shell. Ludwig is seeing demand enough to keep offering the Legacy. And that replicates the shell they stopped making in 1976....

Re: Drum Shell History Questions

Far as I know, Rogers was the first to tout an "all maple" shell, in 1978, with the XP-8.

Re: Looking for new drums - vintage sound

Look into the new Ludwig Club Date sets, http://www.ludwig-drums.com/clubdate_se.php . I've heard 'em, and the cherry/gumwood hybrid shells definitely have a more "vintage" sound than most modern...

Re: Tips for finding add on drums for kit

That might not be a bad idea, if you have the capital to do so. That's what I had to do, to add a 16" floor tom, to one of my kits. Buy a whole second kit.

Re: Slingerland. First solid body electric guitar. 1936.

People were experimenting with electrics in the late 20's. 1932, a guy named Gage Brewer, invented the "Frying Pan" (pictured). Gibsons first production electric guitar was the ES-150, in 1936....

Re: Ordering custom drums from Ludwig

You'll need to talk to a Ludwig dealer. Cost will depend on which dealer, and how bad they want you as a customer. Ballpark would probably be somewhere between $2300 and $2900.

Re: My old Yamaha drum set

The 5000 series was an all Mahogany shell. Probably Philippine Mahongany. Nice, warm sounding drums.I'd ballpark value at $200-300. Great drums to give to your daughter.

Re: ID these Ludwigs

I'm not seeing any badges, so those might have been re-wrapped. Those might be old 3-ply shells ..... or the later 6 ply. Both great sounding.

Re: Should I fix up my current kit or get a new kit?

That gives you some time to do some drum head research. Most all manufactures produce heads that run the gamut of wide open to heavily muffled ..... and stops in between. Figure out what kind of...

Re: Help shipping a 24 inch kick

OK .... I did a little sleuthing. You have prior posts talking about Yamaha Recording Customs. Is that what this 24" bass is? If so, that's a heavy drum. And, at 24", an oversized box. So, if you...

Yeah, but his are metric system unit posts ..... and you need more of those to equal the american standard unit. I think it's a 1.86 to 1 conversion.

OK, this is something that is pretty easy, and you should learn how to do. Like Tama said, the inserts are easy (and cheap) to replace. And it's not a "given" that they even need replacing. Not...
