Re: Correct width and finish for Keystone Ludwig Bass Hoops

And one more measurement....I've got a known 1976 kit, and the bass drum hoops are wider than 1 3/4". I'm calling them 1 14/16".

I've got a late 1966 kit, and an early 1969 kit - both with 22" bass drums. I am not the original owner of either, and I was surprised to see that 1 hoop on each kit is 1 3/4" wide, while the other...

Re: Ludwig 1976 "Pro Beat" drums for sale

Thanks Bob, FYI - Today, I lowered the ebay price to $2000; $1800 for VDF members who bypass ebay. That's more in line with the times, I think. Rough time for everyone. Hang in there, MB

Re: Tuning key fitment on an 1978 SS

Yeah, Grantro is correct. I bought a 6.5X14" SS in 1976, and it came with that P-40 drum key in a little cloth bag, attached to the one of the tension rods.
