    Thanks! FYI: I'll never sell it... or at least have no plans to unless I get hood-winked somehow (which based on my gullibleness... could happen). haha

    Ludwig Baseball Bat Installation Location on Snare Drum

    Haha! So, based on that... what would you do? Would you correct the mistake and put the bat on the correct side? What do you think Bertram would want me to do? This is fascinating! I'm glad I posted this - it's bringing out such interesting stories!

    Ludwig Baseball Bat Installation Location on Snare Drum

    Wow! That's quite a story. Now I have a major dilemma... haha! I'm glad Bertram took care of himself - probably saved his life! Thank you for sharing this! I always have a conflict between keeping a drum stock vs improving it. It would be an improvement to put the baseball bat in the...

    Ludwig Baseball Bat Installation Location on Snare Drum

    I am curious as to why Ludwig mounted the tone control there? Did someone make a mistake? Was there a series of these snares released with the tone control in the "wrong" location? Did that worker get fired? Maybe there's a backstory there somewhere!

    Ludwig Baseball Bat Installation Location on Snare Drum

    Well, full disclosure: I'm actually the one who removed the original muffler on that drum 30 years ago! haha I removed them off of all my Ludwig drums, including toms. Recently, though, I acquired a 60's Chrome snare and started using the tone control. I was quite surprised how well it...

    Ludwig Baseball Bat Installation Location on Snare Drum

    I have an old vintage refurbished 6-lug Ludwig wood snare drum. I want to install a baseball bat tone muffler. On this drum, however, the mounting holes have been doweled and lacquered over, but it looks like the location for it was in the wrong place from the beginning (see attached pix)...
