Re: Prices

Did you sell your punctuation too? (Hard to read post)
More folks seem to be buying buying vintage, I suppose the good old "cheap drum set days" are in the past.
I recall turning down blue sparkle...

Re: Vintage Ludiwg lugs mix andmatch??? nickel

I doubt they would mix nickel and chrome drums at the factory. I've not heard of that before?

Re: Playing (preying) on the nostalgia factor........

Yeah, I tried for a couple decades to get that Ringo snare sound like I heard on Help and Rain and other Beatle tracks. My 1960's jazz fest never got too close.
Then I got the new 5.5" jazz...

Re: Ludwig Pioneer vs. Ludwig Jazz Fest

My signature doesn't make a difference on a mod orange jazz fest I think.

Re: Ludwig Pioneer vs. Ludwig Jazz Fest

Two years ago I sold my OBP pioneer for 1200. Psych red and Mod Orange pioneers would go for around 2K, easily.

Re: Ludwig Pioneer vs. Ludwig Jazz Fest

6 lug drums go for much less than 8 lugs.

Re: Dating Ludwig 401

Basically KO nailed it. KO is a bit conservative on price imo. A nice shiny one like your drum, without scratches and dents go for 2K and up. I date it late 1960-early 1962 (when the baseball bat...

Re: Stan Leveys Ludwig drums

I find many more 22-13 New Yorker sets than 22-12 sets. In those days dealers would order you whatever you requested, irregardless of catalog listings.

Re: Stan Leveys Ludwig drums

Bass drum appears to be a New Yorker, 12" deep. I own a few.

Re: Identification: Ludwig snare Monroe

The snare drum is a "marble"paint finish, made 1993-97.
Blue Marble I think?
They made 3-4 different colors, then pink was added by hand, with a sponge perhaps?
But the handmade finish was...

Re: Ludwig set with mixed shells

I've not ever heard of a "mixed plies" set sent out by Ludwig.
Mixed badges I've heard of but not mixed plies.

Re: Rarest of the pearls

Pink Oyster singles are rare like hen's teeth!
As for rare finishes, the rarest 60's Ludwig wrap is probably Anniversary sparkle.

Re: White Ludwig Vistalite drum value

White Vistalites came at the end of the "Vistalite days" I think.
They're scarce, so adding to the set may not be too easy.
I see 8 lug white vistalite snare drums once in a while.
Folks at...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Ludwig Drums

My set was/is: Teardrop lugs, blue marble finish, 14x20, 16x14, 8x13, 4x14, purchased in June 1964. It took a few months for things to go south re chrome plating and screws stripping.

Re: Ludwig Keystone badge identification

The badge appears to be a post 2008 Legacy badge.
They had serial numbers until about 2015?
In 2008 serial numbers started at 10000.
I have a 2011 snare drum with serial number 12345.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Ludwig Drums

I often read about the post 1964 "drop in quality" but have not yet found anyone who owned any of these "poorly made" drums. The Beatles English distributor (Arbiter) made the statement. Maybe the...

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Ludwig Drums

In 1964 I started out on a new Sonor kit. Within a year chrome was peeling off the hoops and the mount tightening screws (which are small and a pain to use) were stripping out. A straight (up and...
