Re: Ludwig Speed King reissue?

I have had one on back order from the Drum Center of Portsmouth. They recently had gotten an update from Ludwig on delivery. It is now supposed to be available by the end of June, but I suspect with...

Re: Ludwig Speed King reissue?

I've had one on order from the Drum Center of Portsmouth since early May. The latest word at that time was mid-June delivery. But with Covid-19 its impossible to say when it will be delivered. For...

Re: Is Anyone Still Using This Forum?

I'm posting almost every week. There isn't always something to post about.

Re: Wow these Ludwig toms 1960s

I can't imagine ever being interested in them even for free, but if they float your boat that's all that counts.

Re: Is Steve Maxwell still making reproduction parts?

Its too bad the rail mounts are no longer available. I'm glad my son and I got ours when we did.

Re: Is Steve Maxwell still making reproduction parts?

We have his rail mount on our 1962 Ludwig Super Classics and its a first rate repro in my opinion. I'm sorry to hear that you experienced some issues with yours.

Re: Ludwig Downbeat

I really don't have any personal experience with Pioneer snares but I believe some people prefer them over the Jazz Fest.

Re: Ludwig Downbeat

That isn't a DownBeat snare. Is it a Jazz Fest? It looks like a P83 throw off. I don't recall off hand what year they switched to the P85 but the first catalog I have which shows one is 1971.

If...

Re: Ludwig Downbeat

Regardless, $800 for a 5 piece set, assuming it's in good condition, is a reasonable price. Of course without good quality closeups of the shells, hardware, interiors and badges, it's difficult to...

Re: Nice Ludwig&Ludwig set in WMP

Looks great. I'm guessing the tacked resonant head on the mounted tom is MIA.

Re: Stan Leveys Ludwig drums

Is it a 20" or a 22"? With 10 lugs I assume its 22".

Re: Stan Leveys Ludwig drums

Stan Levey was a very big guy. As a young men he boxed for a while as a heavyweight. Look at the size of his hands resting on his snare drum. They look huge! That bass drum has 10 lugs which are...

Re: What make is this snare stand?

I had a very similar one in 1959. It came with my first snare drum, an inexpensive gold sparkle MIJ no name snare. Note that, except for the basket, the stand is very reminiscent of a very basic and...

Re: Barry Drum Company - Philadelphia

And now, I guess, the search begins for appropriate hardware. :) Good luck with that!

Re: Barry Drum Company - Philadelphia

They certainly look like them. As I said previously, the shell might be from the '20s, but the hardware isn't.

Re: Barry Drum Company - Philadelphia

The drum on the bottom of the first image and also in the fifth image appears to have modern lugs and double or triple flanged counterhoops top and bottom which look like they were cast. Even if that...

Re: Bend a Pang to a be like a regular cymbal????

Your a regular Sherlock Holmes. Yes Sir

Some of those reworked cymbals sounded much better than others. I could live with the 18", bit I would never pay anyone to rework a cymbal of mine that I...

Re: Bend a Pang to a be like a regular cymbal????

#1 Medium to thin in weight, but with a greater preference for thinner cymbals?
I believe you already know the preference is for thinner cymbals.

#3, A complex and somewhat trashy underlying...

Re: Bend a Pang to a be like a regular cymbal????

While there are always exceptions, the ride cymbals that seem to be most prized by jazz players tend to have many of the following characteristics:

1. Medium to thin in weight, but with a greater...

Re: Bend a Pang to a be like a regular cymbal????

I don't think a great jazz ride would sound good on metal, assuming it survived it the ordeal. I also doubt that a cymbal that is ideal for metal would be a good choice for jazz. You can play them,...

Re: Bend a Pang to a be like a regular cymbal????

Sorry, have to completely disagree, While it may not be a great cymbal, its a very decent jazz ride and far from horrid. I would prefer a little better defined sticking and a little less wash but the...

Re: K. or not a K....

Yeah family site. Ha. My gut tells me that cymbal is machine hammered. What do you think? Do you know if this seller is usually legitimate?
