Default My Ludwigs First Gig


This is ths first gig I've used this kit. The club is advertised as a Country bar, however we play mainly classic rock, with a bit of country and jazz. We went over pretty well, and the Ludwigs not only sounded great but looked very classy on stage.

Very cool. I'm working on finishing up my Keystone badge Blue Sparkle Ludwigs at the moment, so they should be having their first gig with me pretty soon too.

What snare is that?

I believe it is from the nineties, but I could be wrong. I looked up the serial number but couldn't find anything, maybe someone can help, the number is 3193183..

Wow-that reminds me of my first "real" set of drums...they were old Ludwigs with the same finish, (oyster burst?) but it had the cymbal mount on the bass drum, and the kick and hihat pedal had canvas straps. ( I think they were from the late 60's) I sure wish I would have kept them....
Very classy indeed!!!

Ludwig didn't start using the Monroe Keystone Badges on the Supra-Phonic until 1988, they also switched to the "chrome face" P85 throw off in the mid-1980's, 1984 or thereabouts, so it looks as if the "black face" P85 on yours is a "swap-out" from it's original "chrome face" strainer by someone at some point in the past...........................

Any idea when they made the drums with the seems? I also saw a large keystone 6.5x14 supraphonic on ebay with the black face like mine.

Off hand I can't say about the seam issue with any assurance....................

It's a common thing to see Snares that should have "chrome face" Strainers having the older "black face" version, very common. I usually swap out the chrome for a black on my snares, switching back when I decide to sell. I think the black face is a better design and much more reliable since it doesn't have the "white metal" part, which is prone to breaking, in the working mechanism....................

Another common thing to find is a black face P85 on older Snares that should, by rights, have a P83, the predesessor to the P85. I picked a 1965 Acrolite that had it's P83 swapped out at some point in the past, which didn't surpise me none..........

I have to recondition back to back hammered shell Supra's with the one I just started tonight a 2002 Bronze model, which has the chrome face & Monroe Keystone. The next one up, which is mine, has a chrome face & Blue & Olive Badge and since it has no date stamp I can only figure it dates from roughly 1984 to '88. I know who the original owner was so know nothing has been swapped out, not yet that is.................

I saw your kit, very cool, but in all honesty it's a vintage Yamaha, not quite the same as a vintage Ludwig, but regardless, it's very nice.
