Re: Timpani ID?

Re: Timpani ID?

Anyone offer any info on the two timpani in this photo? I think they may be Ludwigs, but I have no experience with these things.

I may be able to get them for $0, but wanted to see if I could...

Re: Strange mounting plate on Moon kit

Some quick pics of the plates, chromed and mounted on the kick drummer's left.

The kit is essentially "done" now and I'll post some better shots when I get a few minutes.
