Arrived today! I was lucky enough to find this Ludwig bronze LM305 beauty, fresh off the shelf & untouched! These were discontinued by Ludwig years ago and are pretty rare to find in the drum market. It’s welded as opposed to being seamless, but it is deceptively heavy despite the thin shell. Score!

Just ordered a china I have been lusting for every since I saw Alex Rudinger using it frequently, 18" Meinl Pure Alloy. Quick, dry, trashy. Seems perfect, as far as I can tell.

Congrats - I remember your post in the drum section saying you were on the lookout for one.
That didn't take long. (y)

Got the Sonor AQX Jungle kit.

Such a great compliment to my larger more expensive Sonor SQ1 kit

This drum kit just insured me to play different.

Paired with my brass Benny Greb today. I’ll likely never use the snare that came with it


Side note: I played this with my trick pedal but they just don’t vibe together. I kinda want a speed king reissue to add to the kit

I know this is an odd and random thing to say, but the lighting in your studio/practice room is really good. All your pictures look great!

Ha it’s in my finished basement with zero windows. I’m just using 6 large super bright “daylight” flood lights. That plus iPhone 12 Pro camera is really good

Nice! That's an awesome sounding cymbal. I've lusted after one as well and Rudi is one of my favorites. (y)


I recently bought some jewelry for the show queen:
I've always admired these, but never considered actually purchasing them..............until I stumbled across some for too good of a deal to pass up.

They serve no purpose other than looks. Oh the shame. 😞
But don't worry folks; the purchase did not distract me from nor cut in to precious time playing, as some of you might presume, so it's not a total loss. ;)
I'll give a full review of them once I get them on. 😁

Ordered these up to replace the hard plastic ones that shipped with my new Ludwig Down Beat.
You would figure for a top of the line drum set ,they would do better.

I was looking for something like those a while ago. Can I ask where you got them from?

I got them used through a friend of mine, but it looks like Fork's Drum Closet has them in stock.

I have the brass version and it is pretty heavy also. Good drums

Posted this in another thread, recently found this 14x 6 1/2 Ludwig Epic snare with natural finish which appears to be in good shape. I am looking forward to experimenting with this drum which has a short video here:
Anyone else own an Epic?
