    defying conventional drum set up for unique sound

    Here is my Buffalo Cajon kit. It's made from Remo Buffalo drums that I have attached floor tom leg mounts to. A couple of clamps later, an entire drum set mounted from a hi hat stand. Sounds amazing, super lightweight, easy to move. +++++

    My crazy drum kits!

    This is basically the same exact crazy drum kit as the last post, but I have improved it significantly. It went through two iterations that I tested for a few weeks each. On the second version I added an 8" Buffalo drum. I moved the snare wire from the 12" drum to the 8" drum. I still had to...

    show off your snare

    This is my Buffalo snare. I bought a cheap ($30 new!) Remo Buffalo Drum (hand drum) and screwed a set of snare wires into it. The angle of the snare wires gives them the proper tension against the batter side head. The Buffalo Drum shell is made of Acousticon and the head is Fiberskyn. I started...

    Show off your Ludwigs? : )

    1961 Super Classic in (faded) Blue Oyster Pearl. The snare is a super rare '61 Super Ludwig. This kit was a gift from a friend! All I had to do was drive to California, pick it up, and clean it up. This is an amazing kit.

    show off your snare

    Here's one I have not seen anywhere, ever. It's a 1961 Super Ludwig - kinda like a Supraphonic, but with crimped snare beds. NOT a Super Sensitive - apparently an extremely rare drum. I love the drum - it's a little more sensitive than a Supraphonic, sounds great! COB, I think. Imperial lugs.

    Kits that make you drool!

    Here's my set of 1961 Ludwig Super Classics - a gift from a friend. When I received these drums, they were trashed - absolutely filthy and rusty. I restored everything. Claws on the bass drum are replacements - I'm going to have the originals re-chromed because they were too trashed to clean up...

    Ludwig Fan Club

    Here's my 1961 Super Classic restored, re-skinned and ready to play! The snare drum is a '61 Super Ludwig. I played this kit yesterday and it sounds awesome! Big, deep bass - snare cuts like a hot knife through butter - the toms are warm and brown. Awesome score, given to me by my friend Todd...

    I Need Ludwig Help - Anyone?

    I was recently gifted with a 1961 Ludwig Super Classic in Blue Oyster Pearl. Included were a set of vintage Zildjian hi-hats from '61 as well as a Supraphonic snare. I'm experiencing some confusion because the shell sizes are all correct for the kit but it is unusual in two aspects. 1. The tom...

    Ludwig Fan Club

    Here's the 1961 Super Classic shells I've been posting about, all cleaned up and ready for re-assembly. I used Windex to clean the shells, #0000 stell wool soaked in PB Blaster (a rust remover) for the hardware. When everything was cleaned up and put back together, I polished everything with...

    Let's see your POV/ Driver's seat pics

    My home made drum kit, built from Remo's Buffalo Drums. A 14" kick, 10" tom, 8" snare, all mounted on the snare stand. The hi-hats are vintage Zildjians from 1961 - 14". Iron cobra stand and bass pedal. The 14" has a decent thump. The snare is super dry and popcorny. The tom sounds like a...
