Re: help identify the snare drum

Looks like a luan shell....which would lead me to think it's a Made In Japan (MIJ) drum...likely made in the Star or Pearl factory back in the 70's. But I don't know what to think about this e lug...

Re: Help Identifying this Ludwig

I dunno, man...My spider senses are up on this one....I think it might be a re-wrap. The original green sparkle wrap almost always faded...This kit just seems too consistently unfaded. And the...

Re: Rogers Butcher Block

Actually, I see that some of the Rogers T-rods are replaced with Ludwigs...With that in mind, I'd need to see more pictures. Maybe the kit isn't as nice as I thought.

Re: Rogers Butcher Block

Ummmmm....THREE-ply shells? Really? I had an early Big R set with grey interiors and I think they were 5-ply Keller shells....definitely not 3-ply, though. Did they switch to 3-ply shells later?

Re: Slingerland Cordova

I wonder what wrapping a drum in leatherette (or whatever that Cordova finish really is) does to the resonant qualities of the wood shell. It seems like it's a relatively soft material that would act...

Re: Sonor Teardrop

Could be the lighting then. But it appears that the wrap on the bass drum hoop is several shades lighter than the drum wrap. I've never seen this color before. Is there a name for the color? If so,...

Re: Slingerland Cordova

I agree! And I don't think your opinion is rude at all. But I will say that I acknowledge there MUST be someone out there who identifies with these era-specific finishes. Just consider that Citrus...

Re: Slingerland Cordova

I totally agree about the unusual stuff. I'm the same way when it comes to "oddball" tuning systems. Most of what I really like, people have expressed flat-out HATE for.

As far as finishes go, I...

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

I now feel VERY fortunate to have been able to play some really fun gigs in close proximity to some very good players. Of course, I was from the ilk of drummers who were never destined to be really...

I think it's a very ugly finish.

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

Yeah...sorry...I was trying to keep it just related to working as drummers in this time of crisis. I probably should have known better.

Re: Ludwig Classic Lugs-Different Sizes on Toms?

One of the coolest things about a complete, vintage Downbeat kit, is when you get one with a matching Downbeat snare. Then you get not just two, but three different kinds of lugs in one kit!

But...

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

I hope so.

But something just seems like it's going to be changed forever. Will this be the way the world handles itself every time? Most of the musicians I know, live paycheck to paycheck and...

Re: How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

And what about the historic venues such as Small Jazz Club in New York City? They are ...small...if you require there to be a 6 foot separation, then it will take only about 10 people to "pack" the...

How will live music performance change in the (near) future?

It's a question on a lot of musicians minds at the moment. Most of the venues are closed. Will they come back? How will people feel about taking the risk to go out and stand 6 feet away from others?...

Re: Leftover drums and cymbals to good use

Nice. I made a night stand from two, unopened crates of CDs of my recordings that I will never sell. Looks great! ;)

Re: Ludwig Pioneer vs. Ludwig Jazz Fest

My experience with Pioneers is with two of them. One of them I hated and one of them is absolutely the best snare drum I've ever played. The worst one was a green sparkle from the pointy B/O badge...

Re: Vintage Ludwig bearing edges

The bearing edge bevel angle is the inside. The outer area is where either a counter cut is made or, in the case of vintage drums, the round over. The shallower the bevel, the more "meat" there is to...

Re: Bass drum ride mount idea

Well, no...I'm not sure, to be honest. I was just commenting on the idea that it might tip the drum....like if it would have been an 18" bass drum....but as far as what kind of torque it's going to...

Re: Bass drum ride mount idea

Hmmmm....I THINK I visualize what you're saying. I don't think you'll have a problem with the idea with a 26" bass drum....and the arm isn'y extended too far out. But could't you also solve the...
