Re: Ludwig 3-Ply concerns-Shell Shock??

My early 70's 3 ply drums sound loud but are not as loud as 6 ply drums, imo.

Re: Prices

Did you sell your punctuation too? (Hard to read post)
More folks seem to be buying buying vintage, I suppose the good old "cheap drum set days" are in the past.
I recall turning down blue sparkle...

I doubt they would mix nickel and chrome drums at the factory. I've not heard of that before?

Re: Playing (preying) on the nostalgia factor........

Yeah, I tried for a couple decades to get that Ringo snare sound like I heard on Help and Rain and other Beatle tracks. My 1960's jazz fest never got too close.
Then I got the new 5.5" jazz...

Re: Ludwig Pioneer vs. Ludwig Jazz Fest

Two years ago I sold my OBP pioneer for 1200. Psych red and Mod Orange pioneers would go for around 2K, easily.

Re: Dating Ludwig 401

Basically KO nailed it. KO is a bit conservative on price imo. A nice shiny one like your drum, without scratches and dents go for 2K and up. I date it late 1960-early 1962 (when the baseball bat...

Re: Stan Leveys Ludwig drums

I find many more 22-13 New Yorker sets than 22-12 sets. In those days dealers would order you whatever you requested, irregardless of catalog listings.

Bass drum appears to be a New Yorker, 12" deep. I own a few.

Re: Identification: Ludwig snare Monroe

The snare drum is a "marble"paint finish, made 1993-97.
Blue Marble I think?
They made 3-4 different colors, then pink was added by hand, with a sponge perhaps?
But the handmade finish was...

Re: Ludwig set with mixed shells

I've not ever heard of a "mixed plies" set sent out by Ludwig.
Mixed badges I've heard of but not mixed plies.

Re: Rarest of the pearls

Pink Oyster singles are rare like hen's teeth!
As for rare finishes, the rarest 60's Ludwig wrap is probably Anniversary sparkle.

Re: White Ludwig Vistalite drum value

White Vistalites came at the end of the "Vistalite days" I think.
They're scarce, so adding to the set may not be too easy.
I see 8 lug white vistalite snare drums once in a while.

Re: I Have Never "Gotten" Ludwig Drums

My set was/is: Teardrop lugs, blue marble finish, 14x20, 16x14, 8x13, 4x14, purchased in June 1964. It took a few months for things to go south re chrome plating and screws stripping.

Re: Ludwig Keystone badge identification

The badge appears to be a post 2008 Legacy badge.
They had serial numbers until about 2015?
In 2008 serial numbers started at 10000.
I have a 2011 snare drum with serial number 12345.
