Re: Ludwig B/O Black Panther kit

Re: How late were Black Panther Ludwigs made?

Re: Ludwig Black Panther 18"

18" BP Floor Toms aren't insane to find, compared to something I saw for sale once a couple years ago, which was a BP set with 2-18" bass drums!

Re: Ludwig 1970s Black Panther "monster" .....

That's a great deal for $450 !!! Those are the very tail end of the Black Panthers run, since they have rounded badges and 6-ply shells. All of mine are the earlier 3 ply shells with pointed badges....

Re: Ludwig 1970s Black Panther "monster" .....

Now is the moment that all of you at the Vintage Drum Forum laugh at me. I've been playing Ludwigs since 1982, and today I just got the very first LM402 snare I've ever owned.

Re: Ludwig 1970s Black Panther "monster" .....

I've only seen or heard of an extremely small handful of guys who have BP snares. Like, I could probably count them on the fingers of one hand of ones I have seen online. Doesn't mean they aren't out...

Re: Ludwig Blue Marble drums

I'm still forever on the lookout for more, as well. Eventually down the line, my '70s Black Panther monster may turn into a Blue Marble monster. Yes Sir

Re: the old panther strikes again!
