Re: Good Online Drum Shops?

I would say that it can depend a lot on what you're looking for. Sometimes a particular dealer (or dealers) will specialize in a couple of brands and be able to provide better service, pricing,...

Re: Ludwig 4-Piece Cavern Club Fab Shell Pack ?

FYI Black Abalone isn't limited to GC... A few indie dealers like DCP are able to order it on CM and Legacy. In fact Shane @ DCP keeps a healthy stock...

Re: Sonor Safari Discontinued???

Just an on-topic update of sorts:

1) Natural is discontinued and there is no stock left at the US Sonor distributor

2) There is lots of Black Galaxy Sparkle available at the distributor, but...

Re: Limited Edition Pearl Snare Pricing

No worries... the only one I can remember going to OZ directly was to a friend of mine named James who would have either been in Brisbane or Melbourne at the time. Good luck with the sale, let me...

Re: Limited Edition Pearl Snare Pricing

I was personally responsible for bringing that drum to the US market in late 2004. The drum had been made available in the UK / Europe earlier that year but there was enough demand from US customers...

Re: Ludwig Legacy lead time?

Based on recent orders, I would say a minimum of 16 weeks, but you might get lucky and have it earlier :)

Re: Ludwig 4-Piece Cavern Club Fab Shell Pack ?

Paragon has a Music Collection shop which is the Thai distributor for Premier... unfortunately they don't carry much else in the way of drums. Great memory though!

Re: Ludwig 4-Piece Cavern Club Fab Shell Pack ?

It is sad when shops close, but as inconvenient as it is when one closes near you, there's another one opening somewhere else. Case in point would be DCP (2009), Victor Salazar's new shop in Chicago...

Re: Ludwig 4-Piece Cavern Club Fab Shell Pack ?

Who knows... I question the use of Cavern Club (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cavern_Club), when the target market for these kits are drummers far too young to know what it means... that's based...

Re: Ludwig 4-Piece Cavern Club Fab Shell Pack ?

It's likely going to be GC's "Club Date." If you look at the retailers listing it, they all fall under the GC umbrella (MF, Music & Arts, WWBW). GC likely wanted (or Ludwig insisted) that they have a...

Re: RIP Dennis Stauffer

Incredibly sad story... Dennis' son was in the car with him at the same time and survived.

Re: Shot down by Mapex :(

This might work in the USA or even Western Europe, but you'd get laughed (or thrown) out the door just about anywhere in Asia, China and Taiwan included... FYI

Re: Buying Ludwig Legacy classic

The lead time on new orders is indeed that long, owing to strong demand and the hand-crafted nature of the shells.

There are a number of retailers that have excellent reputations and do stock...

Hate to disagree Steve, but you are misinformed. The reason for the proliferation of B Stock Ludwig's, in particular the Black Beauties stems from the fact that there is still literally ONE GUY doing...

Re: Calling all Ludwig guru's....

The Excel sheets are not entirely correct. For example, there's no brass hardware option for Legacy Classics... which of course is an option, and one directly related to this thread :)

Re: Going To Berklee College of Music

Craigslist is one place to start looking. Make sure to check with Berklee as well. I imagine the majority of their student population is not from Boston, thus they should have someone (or even...
