Re: Ludwig Club Date NOT discontinued

Drum devil,

What did you find to be a good sounding head on the club dates?

Have you tried different types- single vs two ply etc?

Any experience would be appreciated.

Double bass CD...

Re: Ludwig Club Date NOT discontinued

I visited my local drum shop here in RI yesterday to see if my WMP downbeat had come in. Anthony (owner) said when he ordered them last week, the Ludwig inventory on all the Club Dates was in the...

Re: Ludwig Club Date NOT discontinued

I ordered a downbeat in WMP last week. Should be in soon.

Anyone who owns the "new" clubdates- what heads have you found to sound good on this set?
I usually go with a 2-ply Aquarian response 2...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Wow, reading all the posts it is clear a nerve was struck.

I would always rather use my kit. I play in a cover band, so we don't do as many multi-band gigs as the original music bands....

Re: club date se

My local drum shop here in RI told me that the club dates were not on the price list anymore.
I ordered the 6.5 snare in WMP and I love it- separate thread on that-

I bit the bullet and ordered a...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

I almost always do a hand cross-over bass drum triplet roll around the kit ending to "Born to be Wild". We usually do that song to end the night, so I have nothing to lose at that point...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple Snare - New or Used


Mine is a 10 lug- some consider this a higher end feature. My experience wit this snare is that it makes tuning a bit more of a pain because you have two more lugs to tap and get evenly...

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple Snare - New or Used

I listened to the sound files. it seems mine does have a bit more "ring" to it, although it appears to be the same drum in a different color.

I have a Ludwig head that I might try this weekend.

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple Snare - New or Used

Nice buy!
I recently picked one up just like that but mahogany stain.
I had a bit of an issue trying to tame the overtone- at medium tuning the drum has a weird overtone that can be heard...

Re: Ludwig Acrolite Fan Post

Based on reviews here, I was on the lookout for an Acrolite as a back up snare.
Village Drum here in RI called me when he had one come in. I paid around $120 for a drum with new heads and snares....

Re: New from NAMM

IMHO, Keystones and Signets are USA Luddies for the working musician.

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

I don't see too many around. My local drum shop is a Ludwig dealer, but he never took any Signets in.
Local GC had one in blue- Afaik they never set it up.
didn't see it there last time so maybe...

Re: Suspension/rim mounts on toms

I usually refer to them as RIMS mounts, although that is actually a particular company that makes that type of mount.
They should not affect tuning, since they are isolated by the rubber washers.

Re: Used Acrolite price jump?

I picked up two in the last 3 months
one was $129 with new snares and heads
one was off ebay in November for $110 including the "ufo" case. This one probably could use new snares, but it sounds...

Also it's a confidence thing. If I have a groove you're not comfortable with in the way I've been going on about (say something like Cissy Strut), there's much less you can do with it in a jamming...

Re: PSA - Lubricate your P85.

I just picked up another Acrolite to back up my first one. The throwoff was very sticky, I had to move it sideways before it would move up and down.
I thought I had one of the "bad" p-85's.

Just my 2 cents-
I have a couple of Roadrunner bags that are well made and are holding up well. They were priced pretty well, less than some of the others for sure.

I also have some of the Ludwig...

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

My local drumshop has a Ludwig legacy in black galaxy wrap that is really classy looking.
It is a 20" bass, 12" tom, and 14" floor. Tom and Bass are undrilled. Priced at $2300 for the set.
