Re: Ludwig-drum refurb. svc. offered?

If you can't get it serviced domestically I recommend contacting Steele Turkington of Kentville Drums. Master craftsman extraordinaire. Shipping may factor in since he's located in Australia.

Re: Ready to buy new kit. Need advice.

Two inches of difference in depth on a 20 inch bass drum shell won't amount to much. My first preference would be 14 X 20", but really if you find a great kit at a great price point, there's nothing...
