Default Re: Ludwig trans. badge COB seam and grommet questions

I've had several of these. Everything that I see is representative of the era. The scratches around the mounting holes and also the large washer on the inside of the grommet are correct.

Yep I think it is. Here I go again to online Ludwig badge timelines!

The one I see says transition badge was 1958-59 with some
drums from the 60's having the badge also.

I have a link about the super!

Here are some pics from the inside of my Super sensitive, I'm sure it is also cob. (no badge on drum) I want to do another thread on this one too with questions. It's been in my storage for decades.

I'm pretty sure when the drums where drilled (from the outside in) they had burs that were ground off smooth.

I have a SS cob too, badge is gone and I need a part or two to put it back together.

From what I have read the SS was brought back into production in 1961. Mine has no plastic parts in the snare system, I guess that came a few years later.

Yes I thought that too about the grommet, makes sense.

Cool! That's what I'm thinking. My cob SS has these too.

I forgot to ask, does anyone have one of these era drums with these initials on the inside of the shell? You can see "A" and "R" ( I think)

I found this snare on Ebay with the same as mine. Quality control person?
