Re: Ludwig Pioneer vs. Ludwig Jazz Fest

Thanks for the responses. So I guess I was thinking correctly.

Did they each come with the same "fixins" (IE muffler, strainer, butt plate)?

Did a Pioneer or a Jazz Fest come with a certain...

Ludwig Pioneer vs. Ludwig Jazz Fest

Hello,

Please forgive this rather rudimentary question, but is the only difference between these two models the lug configuration? (Pioneer has 6, Jazz Fest has 8)?

New old school hardware from A & F

It's really easy to dismiss this company (and their founder) as a hipster doofus and being an overpriced drum maker that no one asked for and for just being.....well........ too cool for school.

Re: 13"x4.5" Arbiter Advanced Tuning Snare

Very cool! Like two giant hose clamps that tune the drum!

I wonder why that system never got traction. You'll have to give us your thoughts about tuning.

DrumBob, I sent you a Private Message about these.

I still have four left, all MIJ. They are light and will be fairly cheap to ship.

I know they can find a good home here.

Did Ludwig make white Vistalites? It doesn't look any different than White Cortex to me.
