Re: help me decide on vintage drums?

Nice looking tubs. Are those 5 ply or 8 ply shells.

Re: would you buy a ludwig accent drum set...

For $85, another yes vote. I know a guy who plays one in a blues band. Sounds fine.

Re: help me decide on vintage drums?

Only as far as rail consolette mounts. Those are almost always right handed, because lefty kits are rare. Any center flange kit (twin mount), you can always run a right tom only. Another option, use...

Re: help me decide on vintage drums?

It's not a case of sounding "better", it's a case of sounding "different". I've had plenty of modern kits, and some "other" vintage kits that also sound great, but weren't/aren't keepers. I own a...

Re: Catalina Rock "Bonham size" kit?

Back when I played the Cat. in those sizes, I had a Ludwig 6 ply, in 26, 13, 16, 18. For the money, the Cat. sounded pretty good (back when they sold new). The larger sizes sound just like big drums...

Re: Bouncing problem

A port will probably solve the issue. Quick check, take off the reso. head. Is the issue solved? Simple. I'd use a smaller 4" or 5" port, then. I've never had this symptom, with 20" and 22" kicks....

Re: Selling a vintage drum set (question)

Re: Selling a vintage drum set (question)

Condition means everything, especially for "serious" collectors. The missing hardware wouldn't be that hard to replace. But that would count as a negative, to a buyer. More important .... condition...

Re: 1 up, 2 down - opinion on FT sizes

With these existing sizes, I'd add a 16x16. My current kit, as set up, 12x8, 14x14, 16x16, 18x16, 24x14.

Re: vintage bulb for home decoration

I tried to follow Jay, but he outran me, and I lost him in the hall. Me, the Edison bulbs, and my 3 ply Luddies, are fine.

Re: How do I find the market value of my set?

'68 sounds right. The clear interiors (not painted) started around '68. You have fold out spurs on the bass. Ludwig started using the disappearing curved spur, around '70. So my guess, your drums are...

Re: How do I find the market value of my set?

Look up similar type kits on eBay. That'll get you in the ballpark, although items tend to sell higher on eBay, than local list services, like Craigslist. There's always interest in Ludwig kits.

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

And that's basically where you're gonna find drums that "project" less than more modern drum designs. Vintage Slingerland, Ludwig, Rogers, etc. Thin shells with reinforcement rings. Want a kit with...

Re: Hihat Problem...

Not all hi-hat rods are the same diameter. Your clutch looks like it's made for a larger rod ...... like a Gibraltar hi-hat. Yamaha has a smaller diameter rod, and your clutch might not have enough...

Re: Worth rims mounting?

Keep what you have, and save your money. The difference between what you have now, and a RIMS system, would be slight, if any.

Re: My final jazz drum set. Is it good? Anything i can improve on?

Personally, I like Yamaha 600 and 700 series hardware. That's what I have. But the Gibraltar stuff that comes with that Cat. will do in a pinch. Are you gonna be gigging with this kit? Repeated...

If you're buying the kit new, think about getting a used one. I'd also opt for a 20 inch bass, instead of the 18....

Re: Ordered a Whitney nesting kit

I was at a drum parking lot sale, in San Diego, and a guy there was selling one. What a great sounding drum kit. The drums sounded rich. Really well built, and a lot of thought went into the design.
