Default Re: '67 Ludwig’s in Burgundy Sparkle

Yes, masking tape, but I don't know why. It must be cracked. I never take out the 8x12 tom, to be honest, so I don't use the holder. I'm still using the Ambassadors they came with, as they sound fine. Bought them from a forum member in Maryland.

The original owner was a drummer who worked the Atlantic City casino and club circuit. I stopped using the original spurs, because they weren't holding very well. I now have a set of DW clip-on spurs that get the job done.

I'm generally not a big Ludwig guy, but Burgundy Sparkle is my favorite finish of theirs, and I had a set years ago and mistakenly sold them. These more than make up for that error.
