Stay At Home Drumming

Since I'm still in semi-lockdown mode, I've decided to break out a different kit each day to shake things up. Today's choice is a 1972 Ludwig Jazzette in the original mahogany thermogloss. Hadn't...

Re: How Do You Play? Matched or Traditional Grip?

I was taught traditional (with no options!) and so that is my natural go-to. Every now and again I'll flip to matched if it's straight ahead four-on-the-floor but my comfort zone for jazz, blues and...

Re: Down beats

Jaghog...here's one I own. It's a '71. I also have a matching 9x13 and 16x16 so I can expand it whenever appropriate. But the 20/12/14 is the size and sound that suits me perfectly.

Re: DW Buys Slingerland Name

Sadly, non-founder company ownership is the way of the world. Family-owned businesses are becoming incredibly rare and a lot of the iconic brands we know are owned by other conglomerates, sometimes...

Re: Vintage Ludwig 3-ply, 12x18 Bop!

Thanks K.O. - This is a 1972 Jazzette, with a '72 Supra. I agree on the finish. These are mahogany Thermogloss which are pretty rare, though the finish on these is by no means "Showroom". But...

Great thread that keeps on going... Here's a pic that shows the interior of the clear 3-ply shell of my 12x18, along with the period and year correct Supra (added later).

Re: Thursday's dumb question of the day-Rogers

2 screws makes perfect sense. Interesting that my Swivo came with 3. I guess I just got a spare! Thanks for the tip.

Re: Date range on a Gretsch snare

That’s a Gretsch Full Range 10 ply snare. Not a Gretsch USA or vintage but I have one and when tuned up, it’s a nice sounding snare. As K.O. says, it’s the equivalent of a Renown.

Re: Dating Rogers Holiday kit and Dyna-Sonic snare

I've got the same era Cleveland Headliner in Red Onyx and wouldn't take less than $1,400 for the three (though in this market, who knows?). With the Dyna, maybe an additional $200-$300 depending on...
