Re: Where have all the Leedys Gone

In all my years of hunting drums around my area (New Hampshire), I have never come across a Slinger-Leedy set. I saw a beautiful 4x14 green sparkle Ludwig and Leedy snare once in a music store that...

Re: Check this out WFL set on....

Looks like someone repainted these some time ago. They did kind of a sloppy job too as there is paint all over the snare drum badge. The paint job should look like my snare in the upper left corner...

Re: Ludwig Question What To Do?

For future reference regarding citrus mod drums. The color was introduced in mid to late 1968 and ran up until about 1972-73. back in those days there of course was no internet or anything like that...

Re: What Color is my snare?

I would remove a lug. The original color should be visable under there. Cool looking drum!

Re: Why do I trust Ebay sellers?

I have never sold on eBay but have sold many things on either Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. I don't care if it's a drum set or a set of roller skates. I only put in any picture what is being...

Re: Two Tone Gretsch

I would be almost positive that this drum has silver satin flame on the bottom that turned that color. I highly doubt a bass drum with mis-matched wrap would leave the factory that way. I think what...

Re: Identification: Ludwig snare Monroe

Classic maple first appeared around 1997 so this drums is probably a classic snare. It should have six plies. They also made a super classic with 4 plys that was discontinued in the early 90's...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

I'm starting to take my vintage sets out more now. I would have always done so but it was just easy to use my classic maple set as it looks and sounds great. Obviously the occasion has to warrant it...

Re: Bop/Jazz Kits

I wish the Gretsch Catalina sets were around when I was in high school (graduated in 1990). My school had a late 50's Slingerland bass and tom that looked like swiss cheese. It was missing the front...

Re: Rarest of the pearls

This is a newer classic maple set. The wrap was made for the 100th anniversary POP snares that guitar center sold and enough wrap was around to do several sets. Bun E has a beautiful set and I have...

Re: Ludwig set with mixed shells

I actually know someone with a mixed ply set. It's a 20,12,13,14 in bowling ball oyster blue. The badges all have close serial numbers, the wrap is a perfect match on all three drums and two of the...

Re: What did I just buy?!!! MIJ or Ludwig?!!

It definitely looks to be a 60's Ludwig. I would love to know what color is under that ridiculous wrap.

Re: '66 Ludwig Club Date Bop Kit Value?

That looks like a beautiful set but I'm willing to bet that the bass drum is a 20". I have never seen an 18" club date bass drum and I have seen thousands of old Ludwig drums. Anything is possible...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Ludwig Drums

I have owned and played tons of vintage Ludwigs. I have had plenty of drums made after the Beatle boom and I probably only had one set that was bad. It's too bad because it was probably one of the...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Gretsch Drums

I have a love hate relationship with Gretsch drums. When I started playing in the summer of 1982, all of my hero's including my teacher played Ludwig. My first set was bought out of price and...

Re: Any Boston Fans?

Very cool! Judging by where the badges are places it looks like it is most likely a set from 1975. The seams are lifting, which is common but the silver sparkle looks to be in decent shape. Would be...
