Default Re: Slingerland vs Ludwig, differences in sound?

Or go with a 5 or 6 ply shell from the 70's. I believe both Ludwig and Slingerland used 3 ply shells with maple reinforcement hoops in the 50's/60's. If you want a different sound, try a 5 ply unimold Slingerland shell or the thick Ludwig shells from the 70's. Personally, I like the old 3 ply shells. You could always try the same shell construction or vintage, but in different sizes. That would give a little variety.
