Re: Ludwig super sensitive brass shell info needed

I agree with BEC. The shell looks like it has the folded over weld on the bearing edge lip,
The strainer is pre-1935. The snare guards are the early 60's era or reproductions. I'm not sure when...

Re: Oops! Caught by the Glitter of it All

Nice find!! Blue Glass Glitter/Sparkle is my favorite color. I also have a Citadel that was stored for decades and the only minus is one tiny spot of rash on the BD.

Re: Treeworks chimes... which one?

Here is a good video of some thing to look for in a Mark Tree. These examples are all Aluminum, but I tend to prefer the richer sonority of solid Brass tubes which are very hard to find now.

Re: Vintage Gretsch Pedals

I agree with Thin Shell! Camco probably made both Gretsch pedals. The underside is Identical too.

Re: Lug maintenance/restoration

I have sometimes found the problem to be a small piece to metal or even a curly sliver of the tension rod thread that had separated and become lodged in the tension rod or even swivel nut itself. I...

Re: Another eBay Bargain

I see. So now my question is did Gladstone do this for every client or was Goldberg the first client which required him to build a prototype? And did he ever make another metal shell drum? Here is a...

Re: Another eBay Bargain

It has a historical value because it was a prototype and supposedly one of only two metal shells produced, Having a replaced top hoop should be considered to some degree.
Something is confusing...

Here is a close-up shot of the ludwig system.

Re: Rogers Expert Please Help

I think so. The shell is the shell and the re-ring is the re-ring. Gretsch and some others have no re-rings and ply shells, so to eliminate confusion when talking about this issue the shell plys are...

Re: Rogers Expert Please Help

I agree with Round Badge.
The tension rods didn't have a flair at the base at the time. Hoops look to be correct but the grommet on the badge is wrong. It should be a muted brass patina matching the...

Re: Different camps of drum fanciers

Interesting subject.
Around 1970 I received an used Ludwig (or WFL?) as a x-mas present as a reward for my 1.5 years of practice pad work. My desire was to get a Rogers kit because that's what my...
