Re: Vintage Ludwig set found at yard sale

Is it possible to find replacements for the 2 lugs that are missing? Also, what do you mean it puts"them into at least the Conn era?
Thanks again for your input.

Re: Vintage Ludwig set found at yard sale

How old is my boy? I'm his mom so he will always be my boy but he is actually a young man of 19.....

The drums are safely up in the spare room and I promise not to touch them.

Re: Vintage Ludwig set found at yard sale

I want to store it inside the house but it is dropping dust/dirt onto the floor. Are you sure I can't take a feather duster to it?
