Re: Gene Krupa on Flames

I think Dave Tough had it right about white marine pearl drums looking like toilets.

Re: Ludwig American made hardware.

You would probably have to go back to the 70's to have USA hardware. It's simply not economically (or environmentally) viable to do it in the States in bulk.

Re: Here's an MIJ Badge You Might Want to Locate

Re: Ludwig lugs??

I have the same lugs on my Montineri kit. I think they're Worldmax or another OEM.

Re: Drummers wearing gloves

I used gloves when I had hand problems and a lot of gigs. I had a long illness which took my strength away and I lost a lot of weight. So when I got better, I was still thin but didn't build the...

Re: Bass drum clamp-on spurs

I haven't noticed but they may. The DWs are padded too.

Re: 70s ludwig cortex mod or factory bass spur/

The gaskets are a good indicator that the spurs were added in the last 10 years or so.

Re: Ludwig Carl Palmer Venus snare problem

Maybe just buy the worldmax shell they're using and drill your own strainer. Why give Luddy any more $$?

Re: Premier Resonator BopKit, what's it worth?

They were successful enough to be around 20 years and made it through the Yamaha era. But I agree that they'll never go for the same as the American brands. I love my Premiers but the resale value...

Re: Yamaha beech

That's how most endorsements are now. They give you a kit, then give you a 1099 for the cost of the kit.

Re: For Sale: 1971 Gretsch Player's Kit 20/12/13/16 in Peacock Satin Flame

I have that exact same kit! Same mounts and everything.

I was worried at first, that someone "borrowed" my pics :) Good luck with the sale.

Re: Mahagony drums

I rebuilt a WFL a couple of years ago and sold it to Electric Lady Studios. Great player grade drums with newer Luddy lugs, around $800. Imagine with a better kit with the original wrap would go for.

Re: Clear Vistalite heads-clear or black dot?

I usually wind up peeling off the black dots. Clear heads are more open and much preferred when I use them.

Re: Do you find yourselves being "party poopers" with sellers?

I have a Premier kit that was my first pro-level kit. I know it wouldn't sell for more than $300 but it amazes me that people will post the exact same kit for $1k without a clue of the market.
