Re: Are Ludwig drums for rock?

He said "Lood-wig." Dang southerners and their Engrish.

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom (5 piece) - price?

When they start looking like the heads on those drums. Those look well worn in, probably stretched beyond acceptable, coating on snare looks well worn. For clear heads, when you really can't see...

Re: New vintage Ludwigs, pics!!

Bermuda - those better have silver dots on them too! Incredibly great looking kit, a showroom piece anyone would be proud to display.

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom (5 piece) - price?

Decent price, but not great is correct. I'd go $350 for that kit. The cymbals are not very good at all and you need to replace those heads ($100 right there).

Yamaha Stage Custom are very good...

Re: Looking for great maple snare for studio. Rock, pop, country.

My sister gave me a ddrum 5x14 maple snare that used to belong to the Zac Brown Band's drummer (Chris Fryar). It's wrapped in woodland camo. Actually sounds just like I would expect maple. I'm...

Re: Slingerland help

Might be that my eyes are going bad, but nothing other than the bass drum head says Slingerland to me. Hoops are wrong, lugs look wrong (but can't tell for certain), and as Mr. Conway mentioned, the...

Re: Ludwig experts. Should I buy this kit?

$850 isn't bad, but I'd try for $700 like others are saying.

I picked up similar (13/14/16/22, but 6-ply, 1976-78) in black cortex for $150 a few years ago in pristine condition.

Re: What is missing from my collection?

I'd go for a DW Edge, 7"x14" brass edges, maple shell.

Of course I have a 5" and a 6.5" Supra already, so that's all I could think of that I would ever really want.

I have an understanding Army wife, but I don't know if she's that understanding! Good catch on the kit and the wife - they're both priceless.

Re: Got half a Ludwig Rocker II

That is awesome. I dig how they turned out for you. If you re-wrap in the future, you need to go psychedelic!

Re: 13" Mercury snare restoration...worth it?

A technique is to use a thin piece of wood (1/8" plywood, for example), drill through that and then drill into the shell (do not stop drilling, continuous drill). That will keep it from tearing...

Re: 13" Mercury snare restoration...worth it?

That center ply certainly looks like mahogany, IMO. in/out plies are probably basswood.

Re: 13" Mercury snare restoration...worth it?

I'd put it together because it'll be cool. Probably basswood or the like and looks like 3 or 4-ply. Will still have a nice sound. Good heads and snares will help that shell a lot.

Bo - Kent was...

Re: Got half a Ludwig Rocker II

USA Ludwig Rockers are great drums. I really like them. You'll never get sounds like that for a similar price point. I think the Frankenstein look there is pretty cool. Nice thing is you'll always be...

Re: 1963 Slingerland

Just got them put together. I will fine tune them and put a link to a video soon.

Some pieces are not original (bass drum claws being the prominent one).

The snare I have with this is a mid-70s...

Re: 1963 Slingerland

I used a razor blade to cut the tape to proper width. Tedious, but it'll be done after a few coats of paint!

This is how I prep and protect the inlay on hoops for refinishing. If anyone knows a better way, please let us know!

Re: Name brand or Custom name brand?

My future snare to replace them all is a 7x14 DW Edge. That's just me. I've coveted that snare for at least 15 years. Might finally pull the trigger on it. They are incredibly heavy.

Re: Real Snare Drum or Fake?

Steel shell. Brass doesn't rust and that most certainly looks like rust, not chrome oxidation.
