Re: BR "flat-base" cymbal stand on eBay

It’s not a rip-off!

It’s a tribute!

Re: Gigging with Vintage Drum Throne

Poetman,
Yes and no. I have a 70’s Ludwig Atlas throne, the kind with swivel feet and each leg is the same. It has a cheap foam pad under vinyl for the business end of the seat. Not in any...

Re: Identify This Double Kick Pedal

It sure looks like this Trixon King Series Double Pedal. The footboard pattern is different, but the mechanics seem identical otherwise. I found one other image by searching yahoo with “heavy duty...

Unconventional Drum Set

Here are my Slingerland Cutaways with a RIMS Purecussion Headset bass drum and 60’s blue sparkle Pearl snare. Fun set-up that’ll probably never see the light of day outside my basement. Then again,...

Re: What Ludwig Kit Do I Have?

Hello and welcome to VDF.

Your set looks like a Downbeat, except with a 22” bass drum instead of the 20”. Ludwig, and many retailers, permitted size substitutions by the customer.

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

I have repainted the gray ones. They are now black and white, with a blue stripe on one. I think they look much better.

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Thanks! I have had more than one person think that the gray ones are green, so I am going to repaint them black and white instead of gray and off-white, like I should have from the get-go.

Re: Lug maintenance/restoration

D,
Is your question regarding the entire process of making the hardware spiffy and shiny, or is about the mechanics of silky smooth tuning?

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Great job on those!! Now it's time to enjoy them...How do they sound?

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Here they all are, posing with my WFL 12x22 BD. I thought the “charcoal” colored paint would be more toward the black and less gray, but oh well.

Re: Slingerland Cutaway Project

Here’s the first pair, the 10 and 12.

Re: Can you help ID a mystery loop clamp style bracket?

Wait, I do see a difference. The ones I cited appeared to have a circular disc between the saddle mount and the pinch clip. That disc most likely had the holes to register a small pip on the bottom...

Re: Can you help ID a mystery loop clamp style bracket?

That’s an early 1950’s Ludwig cymbal mount. It was the first type to mount to the shell rather than be clipped to the hoop or shot straight out of a bass drum spur-type mount.
