Default Re: Ludwig floor tom correct legs

However, you said you're a tall guy and the legs you're considering would be more appropriate anyway. The legs you pictured have the longer splined section and probably from the 80's or newer. I have a set of mid-to-late 70's 23" legs where the splined section is only half the length of those you are considering. I would definitely go with legs with the longers splined section. The shorter, and period-correct, legs won't give your tom enough height!

And, YES, those legs are Ludwig!

Thanks, Mark.
Yes indeed the legs it came with are too short to me and, as you can see, one of them has a little rust. Mine are 16,5" rubber included though. Now I know the legs I'm considering are from the 80's or even newer (thanks to you) I guess the asked price is not so reasonable.
