Re: Vintage WFL Ludwigs, need info, advice
The kit looks great all set up.
I tighten the rivets on the muffler felts by using a punch and a hammer to flatten them.
It worked great on my kit. They no longer rattle. I don't use the mufflers but I like to keep the drums original.
You can buy plastic rivets for the holes in the shells. They come in different sizes and they are commonly used on cars to hold body panels in place.
The new Atlas mounts did wonders for my rack toms.
I kind of like old drums:)
