Re: [B]1925 LUDWIG & LUDWIG 4 x 14 8 LUG GOLD PLATED/ENGRAVED TRIUMPHAL MODEL (*Wm. S

Absolutely beautiful! That Triumphal has got to be the "Faberge Egg" of snare drums. I can't imagine a more beautiful drum. But what was the "swastika" drum you refer to in your post?

Re: Hello......Is This Thing Working?

Nothing to joke about. I love my Biman snare (see pic below). It sounds every bit as good as a Ludwig.

What Make/Brand are these drums?

My 9-year old beginner drum student told me his parents bought him an "old" drum set. I asked him to send me a picture of the set (see attached). What are these?? Steel shells, no logo or labels,...

Re: Beginner kit score

I'm still wondering who originally paired up (and played) that vintage Supra with a Groove Percussion set??

Re: Alternate Wrap Material

Drumfx:

Where do you buy this??? That material would open up endless possibilities at a very low cost.

Re: Alternate Wrap Material

UPDATE:

Ended up donating this set to a local church in need, creating more open space in my basement for something new. Win-win.

Maybe a Ludwig Speed Master pedal with a Rogers one-piece footboard??

Re: Questions about this Majestic Snare????

Thanks for the comments guys. I don't normally keep any MIJ snares in my arsenal, but I think I'm going to keep this one just because it sounds so good. It's changed my opinion about MIJ snares.

Re: Rogers 9-72 Paper Labels

That graphic is incorrect. The 1972 and 1975 are switched. According to Cook's Rogers book (and all other dating guides I've seen), the 1972 label had no letter prefix with an underlined serial...

Question Questions about this Majestic Snare????

Picked up this Majestic snare at a yard sale. It was covered in years of grime and dust and missing a couple t-rods, but I thought I could clean it up and give it to one of my students. After...

Re: What make is this snare stand?

I'm starting to believe that this is a 50's or 60's MIJ copy of a 30's Hamilton stand. If it were a genuine Hamilton, it should have had the Hamilton name on it somewhere. So instead of using it to...

What make is this snare stand?

Need help identifying this snare stand. Not sure about the make or age. Some internet browsing leads me to believe it is either a vintage Hamilton, or a later MIJ copy. Any ideas? It's very flimsy...

Re: How Do You Play? Matched or Traditional Grip?

Both of course, but there's more grips than just those two.

I'm a little pi$$ed off about this topic right now, because one my percussion students was recently chastised by an audition "judge" for...

That second cover is hilarious! How is that cymbal arm staying there? That poor tensioning nut on the cymbal mount must be tightened to the point of stripping...

Re: What are the rarest Slingerland wraps/finishes from th 60's-70's?

Back in my gigging days, I used a Ludwig Atlas stand rather than a tripod to mount my video cam. I liked the smaller "footprint" of the cymbal stand. A standard tripod just took up too much floor...
