I have yet to play a bad Dingwall, and I've played a few.
That is a beautiful thing, right down to the tuning pegs. Congrats on your anniversary too
whats so speicla about this clutch? it looks fancy
Awesome, I have a Mardis Gra tom !!!About as close to Mardi Gras as I will probably get. A week or two ago, through GC, I purchased a Pearl Session Studio Select birch/mahogany shell pack in Black Halo Glitter, which are special orders. Was going for white Marine pearl but when I found out this was a lacquer finish, I opted for this one. They gave me July as far as when it comes in, sizes are 22bd 10t 12t 14ft 16ft.
While I am waiting on my shell pack, I managed to get these from reverb, 7x8 and 9x13 rack toms.
Beautiful on the outside and bonus, I love the look of the mahogany interiors just as well. I can’t wait to put CS dots on these.

I'd like to get your thoughts on this once you get some time using it. I've been interested in these since I saw a video about them.
My main question is if it pops open when the hats are played hard. One of the issues with a drop lock clutch is they pop open if played too hard when set to have a very small opening.Had a quick play with it yesterday. Absolutely brilliant Exactly what I have wanted for a long time
I'm curious about this too. I've had to adjust my "open" to more open than I normally prefer to prevent this from happening with my current drop clutch.My main question is if it pops open when the hats are played hard.

turns out it's actually a 20x12 Ludwig Hobby bass drum (1964 based on the badge). the duco is in much worse shape than the pictures/listing led on, but overall I'm glad I bought it. shell is round, edges are perfect, and it's super clean inside. I sprayed several coats of clear on it to hopefully preserve the finish. I was basically able to blow off the paint. just waiting on a batter side head to finish it off.just bought this 20x14 single tension Ludwig bass drum on eBay earlier today. stumbled upon it and thought the price was really good. I've always loved the duco finish and this one especially is pretty awesome. needs a bit of work, but excited to get this cleaned up when it arrives!
Oh my... that's utterly stunning!!!My first solid "1-ply" snare. Very open, lotsa sustain, at first blush it sounds good at low & high tunings. I put an Evans Genera batter head on it for today’s July 4 party gig (I’ll let y’all know if Covid pops up on my radar) and it has a very nice, dry, woody pop. Hopefully it’ll sit well in the mix.
