Default Re: This is the Display Your Sonor Drums Thread

The logo does not extend to the edge on these (picture 1). There are no date stamps anyway, so that would have just been frustrating if there were the badge you were seeking. I did recently get some parts off of a damaged shell from someone on Reverb. That drum had the badge with the logo going all the way to the edge (picture 2). The seller still has the other drums from that set, so might have some information for you. Message me and I will give you the details.

Collecting information about the following for ongoing research projects:
Gretsch drums with serial numbers,
Ludwig Keystone and B/O badge drums with serial numbers and date stamps,
Ludwig Standards from 1968-73, and
Ludwigs with paper labels from 1971-72

That is a beautiful set KCDD. Glad to hear it's almost all together
(I didn't know about the logo anomalies in the Sonor pool, interesting!)
