Re: Another High Priced Vintage Kit For Sale

Also hard to ignore the thousands and thousands of Yankee fans chanting "f*** Altuve" so loudly that it was heard clearly on the TV broadcast.

Re: Another High Priced Vintage Kit For Sale

It's a reflection. Odd that it's there in all pictures, but the shape and location changes.

Re: Question on a 20x18 Ludwig F.T.

Very interesting. The hoops add a half inch to the height of a drum (I can't remember what they do to the width), so unless they're measuring poorly and also rounding up, that's definitely an 20x18,...

Re: Question on a 20x18 Ludwig F.T.

The pictures leave a lot to be desired, but I see no reason to think it's a re-wrap. A re-wrap in butcher block would be unlikely, given how unwieldy the cortex finishes are. I do think it's a 16x16,...

Re: Another High Priced Vintage Kit For Sale

People like this seller should be captured and studied, to determine how to keep the world from getting any more of them.

Re: eBay listing that infuriates me!

Those early Atlas stands are the most valuable part of the whole package. He could probably get $300 for them if they're free of rust and pitting.

Re: This Is The Least Active Forum Ever

I've noticed the guys on Facebook know a whole lot less than VDF and DFO members. The worst part is they're convinced they know everything.

Re: Day late

It's an MIJ snare without the bottom hoop. No bead to be had, and that's the throw off you're seeing.

Re: Opinions: Hawthorne Drum Shop

I've only interacted online through email and social media, never purchased anything, but he and his staff have always been accommodating and informed. I agree that $600 does seem high on that kit. I...

Re: Great Cartoon

I got my first set during that early 2000s period when custom Keller sets really blew up overnight. Like so many others, I had a kit built that was not worth near the amount paid, but fortunately...

Re: Ludwig Downbeat 1965

15 seems high to me. Like has been said, itís a common color and itís not museum quality. Is the snare a Jazz Fest or Pioneer? With a Pioneer I would say 11, but with a Jazz Fest 12.5.

Re: Ludwig Super Classic

Does the buyer know the edges were re-cut? I saw several of your listings stopped mentioning that.

Re: Ludwig 1976 Red-Silver-Blue kit on eBay

Why was that original thread removed? Did people start arguing or are the mods cracking down on that tompeter bot account that started the thread?

Someone on the DFO says they're being shipped to Florida. I don't know how that lines up with the seller signing people up to view the drums at 6 last night. Only thing I can come up with is...

Re: Repairing scratches in '60s Sparkle wrap (Ludwig)

Are those not gouges? I've got a champagne tom with very, very similar looking scratches and I don't think anything would fix it. You can feel the scratches on mine; they're coarse.

Re: 1990s Ludwig scratches

Those aren't the correct hole sizes for a Ludwig muffler. The bead also looks funny, as if it has a ridge where it meets the shell, on both the top and bottom of the bead. Does anyone else see...

Re: The Most Recorded Snare

Man, I would have given anything for George Martin to tell me my snare sounded bad.
