Saw this setup in an old D'angelo music video, that ride cymbal deserves to be on this thread.

Re: Keep an antique set safe for the travels

I have a '58 WFL (Ludwig) kit that I gig with pretty often. I was in the same situation after I scored it on Craigslist and couldn't decide whether or not to play it, but eventually I just realized...

Re: WFL versus Ludwig blue and olive.

I agree with this for sure, based on experience. I have a '58 WFL kit that I love, but I really would love to be able to swap out the floor tom legs for something sturdier. The only problem is, the...

Re: What's the worst kit you've had to play on?

My band played a few shows in our region with another band and we backlined the whole thing. The other band we were on the road with was super "indie", and had set the whole tour up...needless to say...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple Options

+1 for Keystone badges.

when it comes to floor tom brackets, I prefer classic over keystone...I know someone with a CM kit with keystone brackets and they wouldn't fit in any of his cases or bags,...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple VS Gretsch USA Custom (Need Advice)

I own a Ludwig Classic Maple kit, and I recently used a Gretsch USA Custom kit in the studio. I am a huge fan of both kits...it's hard to say which one is necessarily ''better" though. There wasn't a...

Re: WFL snare drum

I have a 1958 WFL snare drum (Barrett Deems model) in White Marine Pearl that I love. Clean it up, slap a Remo Coated Emporer or Ambassador on there and play it up. Those things have a lot of mojo.

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

When I told one of my co-workers that I was in a band he said, "You tha lead singer??"...when I told him I played the drums he said, "You don't look like no drummer, you ain't got long hair."

Re: Great tune with drums and solo by Dave Weckl

Growing up in the 90s I watched a lot of Dave Weckl videos. Now, it's really strange to see him without that 90s haircut. Also, great solo.

Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

I have an EMAD on my 22" kick, and I used to have the same problem. I have an Aquarian Modern Vintage reso head on the kick now though and there's a huge difference. The aquarian head has a felt...

Re: 20 vs 22 kick?

Both of my kits have a 22" kick drum, but the church where I play has a 70's Ludwig Standard kit with a 20" bass drum with an EMAD on it and it is my favorite out of any kick drum I've ever played. I...

Re: ID these Ludwigs

Thanks for the info! I was assuming it was probably something that got pieced together over time, but it was listed for $200 so it piqued my interest.

Re: Looking for something new, need a little advice.

I second both of these...one thing I'll say though from gigging with a vintage Ludwig kit for a year or so is that it's important to make sure the kit has solid hardware, and kick drum spurs can be...

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

Big thumbs up for the Acrolite. I got mine for $80 on Craigslist and I've seen others for around that before too. It's a really solid, great sounding snare, and the focal point of a drum kit. Studio...
