I am not spending another cent on mods to my existing bass drums while I wait for appropriate compensation from either Ludwig or the distributor.
No Problem. This was driving me crazy for a while. My Ludwig kit has been stacked in a cornor for a couple of years. I'm going to sell it and will probably never buy another Ludwig product again. This is really unacceptable.

If Ludwig made it's heads readily available that would help, but even then their head selection isn't the greatest.


They need to make this right!
My body stunk, but I kept my funk.

WTF is going on with Ludwig? What a friggin shame.
Thanks Freddy!

"Thin" is exactly how I'd describe it. It just has no beef. I got a call from a guy at Ludwig last week and have been too busy to return it. I don't know what the status is on my new hoops or if they've even bothered w/ that yet. I'll try the guy back today and find out.

I just got this kit but at this point, I'm ready to replace it. I can't dig the drums if the kick doesn't sound good.
