I could use some, ok a lot, of help please. All you Ludwig fans... Just picked up an old 6.5x14 wood shell snare at a flea market. I've always been a Tama guy, so my knowledge is minimal, and hours of searching have left me needing a strong Captain and Coke. Details are... Oval, enamel Ludwig and Ludwig badge. Date stamp on inside of shell is 8-27-40. That conflicts with the 30s era badge? Yes? No? Maybe? Seems all original except heads and snares throw off fully functional. Finish is bizarre. A blue with glitter thrown on after painting. They must have taken the lugs off, but the badge was painted over. I carefully scraped the paint off badge. Hoping I didn't damage it too badly. Possibility it's White Marine Pearl underneath? Definitely a wrap. Any advice, or where to get solid info would be extremely appreciated. Thank You!

Updating myself... Not a wrap, found small chip with bare wood exposed. Now I'm even more stumped. Seeing how the badge was painted over... 🤔

Ok...so I found a used guitar at Guitar center for 89.00. It was a black westone pantera that is super comfortable to play (small hands). I bought this Blackstar tiny! 3 watt amp for 60 bucks that will have you shaking your head in disbelief. My goal is to take over the world one state at a time. (Someday).
I can't see it. ;)

Well I bought a pair of these curious of brand and the taper and tip of these and when I picked them up I thought a lil light but wow what a delight to play these. Not a hard hitting stick but just sounds wonderful on everything-snare,toms and cymbals especially sweet.

Ludwig Custom Maple ,Pearl MCX ,Gretsch Renown and many many Fibes snares.

I'm curious about the Ludwig Custom Maples in your sig. :unsure:

So.......you're going to have a 10/12/14/18 Stage Custom bop set. I had one of those too.
Don't forget about the double tom holder, unless you're going to replace the 12 with the 10.

Already done.
Will post when complete.
Craigslist is a marvelous tool.
The Ludwig Downbeat has great BD and the toms are fat and punchy.
My two new sets were less than half street price from GC on closeout.
The Downbeat new street is like $2300 ,I lucked out for a $1K.
The Yammie was $225.

Listened to the specific cymbals on memphis drum shop's website and am thoroughly pleased.

Hey pgm554 - those Ludwigs are Classic Maples, not Custom Maples. Names aren't a big deal, but it could confuse people.
