Re: 1971 Ludwig... opinions?

Warrenwood, you're going to like the sound of those incoming Ludwigs. Like you, I have a 1960's Slingerland, which I love. Great mahogany sound. But I also like the sound of my 1970 Ludwigs with the...

Re: Magical Mystery Stand-hardware question

Nah, I probably did the same thing you did - Google “Double Conga Stand” and see what pops. Saw a Gon Bops that was similar.

Or... I am the magnificent Carnac. In my magical and borderline...

Re: Looking for Atlas Stands

Well now, you just struck a sore spot. I won the auction and promptly paid on Oct 6. Here it is, the ending of the 10th, and I haven’t heard ‘boo’ from the seller. Paid $49 plus tax and shipping...

Re: Looking for Atlas Stands

I would not want the newer ones with the tubular legs and the big ol’ snow boots on them.

First choice would be the early flat-legged one, but I’d consider the lunar-module looking swivel feet!

Re: Tension rods, cleaning, rust, soaking

If you don’t like the idea of running the tension rods through a tap, a gentler method is to use a 1/4” drive socket extension to drive a tension rod partially coated in a cleaner (I use Flitz...

Re: Looking for Atlas Stands

Blairndrums,
I have purchased the hi hat (from Mark) and just won the bidding on a snare stand on ebay, but thanks for answering up.

I am still looking for a straight cymbal stand.

Re: Magical Mystery Stand-hardware question

Couldn’t tell you a brand, but it looks like a stand for a pair of congas. Old Gonbops?

1970 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl Test Drive

I just got my 1970 Ludwig Set shipped to me Friday. I spent a few hours dismantling them, shining them up with Novus 1 & 2, then reassembled them. All of the brightwork was already perfect. I tuned...

Re: What's more frustrating...

Catherine,
I haven’t played them yet. They showed up this afternoon and I haven’t had the chance yet.

Gunnellett,
It is indeed shiny, which is one of the reasons I bought this particular set. But it’s got lots of tiny, light scratches on it. I couldn’t resist trying out a little Novus 2 on the...

Re: What's more frustrating...

K.O.,
That’s pretty much what I was thinking. Nothing else looks suspect (glue, grommet, extra holes). Maybe a Friday afternoon drum.

Re: Slingerland Drums For Sale

Alright, lads and lasses,
I have had one nibble on these, but it seemed to have fizzled out. Help me out here.

Re: Beautiful, or just grandma’s linoleum?
