Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

That's right. I've driven distances to meet people for deals only to have them a no-show. It ****es me off that I wasted my time like that.

Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

I guess so. It was a perfect transaction because the seller showed up on time!

Re: Evans 360 uv1

I have no idea what the deal is with UV1 heads, but whatever it is, Evans has the durability thing down pat. I stopped using Remo heads pretty much years ago, because they didn't hold up, they dented...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

That red marine set is so tempting, but I don't want to spend $920 on them with shipping. After all this the the seller still won't budge on pricing.

Re: Evans 360 uv1

As long as you like them, that's what matters.

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Yes, the guy who owns the company, Jim Laabs, has a music store in Wisconsin and farms out production to Asia somewhere. You're never going to find American-made drums at that price point! At least...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

$130,000? I think you meant $1300? If you're talking about the red marine pearl set on Reverb, he will not budge one iota from the $779.99 price, claiming he's selling them on consignment and that's...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

Do they call those 8x14" toms tuna cans? Good name.

Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

I bought mine from a member here who rarely posts, usually, only when he has something to sell. He was in Maryland, I'm in northern NJ, so I took a day off from work, and he met me at the Christiana...

Re: Evans 360 uv1

Yes, I'm a big fan of Evans UV1 heads since I tried them last year on the recommendation of my artist relations rep, Steve Lobmeier. Steve and I have worked together for years, and he knows what I...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

Jay, that red marine pearl Premier set is back up on Reverb, and still at the same price of $779. I would have bought those drums, if the seller had been flexible. He wasn't, and I didn't.

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

That sounds like a real good deal, as long as the seller has spare heads. The thing is, if you like specialized heads, like Remo Controlled Sounds or Clear Emperors, you might not be able to get...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

Jay, here's the turquoise Ajax set I turned down. They were international sized shells, so that was a factor.

Re: $475 to ship a drum set???

It's gotten ridiculous to ship big sized drums. Make friends with someone who owns a pack 'n ship store, like me. My man Frankie packs the drums with me and charges me the bare minimum. We sent a big...

Re: 60s Premier and Ajax Nu Sound Sets

Just my two cents, but I would stick with newer Premier drums with international size shells. Finding heads you like that fit a pre-international set properly could be hard. I have come close to...

Re: Three Sides of Ludwig

I've also got a set of '67 Burgundy Sparkle Ludwigs in 12/13/16/22 configuration and I would love to find a 14" or 16" floor tom to add to the set. I never use the 12" tom on this particular set. I...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Right, undoubtedly made in Indonesia or somewhere else in Asia. And lots of big words and marketing spin that ultimately means zilch. As I said, Trixon drums should have remained a distant memory.

Re: Can anyone help identify this drum?

I'm going to guess Duplex, but I'm not sure about that. I had a chance to buy an ancient Duplex snare drum years ago and walked away, as I had no practical application for it. The seller wanted over...

Cool. I like alternating toms and shaking things up occasionally.

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

So, there is only one US dealer who owns the company, and most of what they offer are budget priced kits and so forth. Some of the sets feature outmoded, elongated power rack toms that went out of...

Re: Oh No...Trixon Is Back From The Dead

Did you ever see the photo of Bill Haley and his drummer and the Trixon set? The drummer has the same odd setup and both are wearing a king's crown.
