Hey SJ,
Its so funny because I was thinking about "stickboy" the other day. I used to be on the other side arguing (defending) DW drums with him, but now that I picked up the ' 71 Ludwig kit, I wouldn't mind giving him a little credit. Mind you, I still love my ' 89 DW set, and will never get rid of them, but the vintage vibe I'm getting from the Luddies is so cool.

MadMax,
Did you decide on doing any sort of repair on the bass drum? I know you were thinking of wrapping the kit also. How do you like the snare? I love Ludwig metal snares ( well, Ludalloy, Brass, Bronze), but I've never owned a wood one.

Well, how did it sound on the video? I know it's not the best quality, but you can get an idea.
I love the snare, it pretty much has that warm maple sound.

I'm at work right now, so when I get home I'll have a listen. I think a 6.5"x14" snare is the perfect size.

Haha! Time will tell. JSA could not control his temper well.

Anyway, nice set, beautiful finish. How old is it? It appears in such good condition that it could be new, or very old but just well cared for. The finish looks more modern, though. It doesn't seem like vintage drums had that color but I don't know much about them.

What kinds of stands are those? They look kind of like those vintage low-profile single-braced, but with a modern flair. They look cool.

I'm not sure of the exact age, but I'm pretty sure they were made within the last ten years. That's a mahogany finish that Ludwig still carries.

The stands are a creation I came up with, they have new Gilbralter flat based snare stands with a DW middle post and DW tilters. They are light weight, but hold up very well. Thanks.

Here's a few more pictures, that's a 20" Zildjian medium ride, no big deal, but it sounds good enough.

That really is a slick, classy looking kit there. I used a plain-Jane Zildjian Medium Ride like that for almost 20 years. Its a good, versatile cymbal.

Just try to be a little nicer Juststic.., MadMax... mark4dru...
BTW, I saw the youtube video and the sound quality sucks on that site, so it's hard to tell what that snare sounds like.

Nice drums. Cymbal choice is pretty good.

That's funny, because it doesn't sound that bad to me compared to other drum videos I've seen, although I do wear headphones when I listen to anything on Youtube.

I'll take another listen with headphones, I was too lazy and I was listening on my laptop. Do you own any metal Ludwig snares?

Very resourceful. Those snare stand bases are smaller and lighter than standard cymbals stands, which is OK because you don't have a bunch of stuff hanging on the stand, and it gives the set a more streamlined look. The hardware complements the set well. If people in the '50s would have made drums and hardware like they do now, this looks like the kind of set they would have come up with.

I also dig the Fiberskyn bass head. I only play with Fiberskyn batters. I think they're the most beautiful heads and control ring and overtones better than anything. I also like how you leave the bass drum natural - you haven't stuffed a mattress or engine block into the drum to kill its sound. Pillows in the bass drum just look real amateurish.

I have fiberskyns for the toms as well, although I havn't tried them on this kit yet, I think I'll do that tomorrow.

As for the kick, all I have against the batter head is a rolled up towel, I got that idea from watching a Simon Phillips instructional video that was made way back in the 80's I believe, hence the word video.
