Re: Any Lud Experts see any reason to not jump on this?

For the record, before I crawl back into the hole from whence I came, I didn't advise to spin a head on a shell to check for an out-of-round condition, only to check, if possible, to see if a head...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

I've re-conditioned dozens of snares, some from the 1930's and if I thought that the older ones were weak in any way I wouldn't have sold off my newer Acro's, including a Black Galaxy, and kept the...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

Eric, your question about new vs old is straight up based on personal preferences so you may get differening opinions, all would be "right answers" since it all depends on what sound a person might...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

I'm still kickin' latz, just been doing my drum talkin' face to face at a friend's shop.

Re: Ludwig Keystone badge clarification need some help

I guess you could look at the last Keystone Badges Ludwig used before they left Chicago as Chicago "Monroe" Keystones but since the Chicago, silkscreened (gold on gold) Keystones came first it could...

Re: Can you buy Ludwig blue olive badges that are new?

Other than the source that Mendozart provided I know of no other place for "new" Ludwig Badges so that looks like your best bet. Ludwig has a policy, official or unofficial I don't know, that...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

Drew, to me there isn't much, if any, difference between the Black Galaxy or the earlier powder coated Acrolites, on the other hand, I do feel that there is a noticeable difference between any of the...

Re: Ludwig "Combo" 1965

Tony, once you get the Drums it's usually an easy matter to tell if the insides have been refinished or not, simply put your nose down by the vent hole and tap the head, older Ludwig's, especially...

Re: Ludwig "Combo" 1965

Personally I think Drums should be used and unless it was something rare, I mean really rare, then play 'em if ya got 'em!

Bottom line, it's your investment, which should mean that you would use...

Re: Ludwig "Combo" 1965

Harry, you may be correct when it comes to it being a Club Date, which was my first assumption but that odd serial number on the Floor Tom had me thinking that the Kit, if it is / was indeed a Combo,...

Re: Ludwig "Combo" 1965

Tony, the later Combo's were a line of Drums (very entry level) as opposed to a specific Kit and were an entirely different animal than the Outfit in the listing. You are spot on when you thought...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

Trip, Flitz goes thru stains & discoloration on an anodized Acrolite like a hot knife thru butter and is actually more effective on that finish than any other I've used it on. Below is a before...

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

TMTM, there is a local guy who has a similar Supra from the same time frame who brought his into a friend's Drum Shop and when I saw it my first impression was that someone had swapped out the Lugs....

Re: Advantages of metal snares in jazz.

Actually Joe played a Super-Sensitive, at least he did in the early 60's.
You can easily make out the S.S. mechanism in this shot from the 1963-64 Catalog.

Re: Advantages of metal snares in jazz.

Another thing to consider is that you can get a metal shell Snare to sound like a wood shell, either through tuning, head choice or other muting methods, but you can't get a wood shell to sound like...

Re: Supraphonic pair with which snare wires?

Puresound Custom 20, or, if looking for more of a 60's-70's vibe you could try the Canopus wires that are designed just like the vintage Slingerland Wires. Canopus offers two different versions,...
