Hi O-Lugs! Yes, it's PHN. My face has completely cleared up and you'd never know anything was wrong with me! I'm leaving in 15 minutes for my appointment!

Re: [B]1951 LEEDY & LUDWIG 5 x 14 AUTOGRAPHS OF THE STARS BROADWAY STANDARD [/B]

Hi Mike!

I don't know why it's taken me so long to see this drum! Per your request, I've re-posted them to save our necks! And, it's NO hassle! The last picture didn't require anything, but I'm...

That's a great Pearl kit from about 1969! If it was a double-bass set, it was most likely the one pictured, which was the "Big-Shot Outfit". It also featured Pearl's best lugs and tom arms!

Re: Ludwig P-85-Nickel

Hi V!

I'm not aware of the P-85 being offered in a nickel finish. It would seem that by the time the P-85 came out, everything was chrome plated. By any chance are you referring to the P-83? I...
