Default Question about Ludwig Stainless Steel drums

Does anyone know if Ludwig made a 20" stainless steel bass drum? The one I've found is a blue and olive badge. Looking through old catalogs I noticed most were 22" or 24". Thanks for any help!

I've never heard one, but I bet a 20" steel drum would be one loud and punchy mofo!

Cool Re: Question about Ludwig Stainless Steel drums

I have a 20" concert tom, but, I haven`t come across a bass drum yet...I`m sure they are out there, somewhere...

Cheers

That's a serious drum-machine you have there! Like a musical Sherman Tank ready to mow down the enemy. Sweet kit. Play em hard and loud - those drums were meant to be played with conviction.

Beauty of a kit ! A friend of mine had one like that back in the late 70's. I would help him set it up at gigs and he made us wear cotton gloves to protect the shells. The kit really looked great under the stage lights, and most importantly sounded fantastic whe he was playing King Crimson and Ziggy Stardust copy music ! Enjoy it

Cool Re: Question about Ludwig Stainless Steel drums

Here`s one on ebay...Looks like someone added a tom mount...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-LUDWIG...EAAOSwZW5aAIlN

MY GRANDFATHER SPECIAL ORDERED THIS LUDWIG STAINLESS STEEL 20" BASS DRUM MANY YEARS AGO. IT MAY HAVE CAME IN AS A VIRGIN....I DON'T KNOW. THE CENTER TOM MOUNT WILL SET STRAIGHT IF ONE OF THE SPURS/FEET IS ADJUSTED HIGHER THAN THE OTHER. THE BADGE AND GROMMET APPEAR ORIGINAL AND THE DOUBLE TOM MOUNTING BRACKET ARE ALSO ORIGINAL. STILL A RARE FIND AND WILL LOOK GREAT SITTING NEXT TO YOUR 22" OR 24" KICK FOR A DOUBLE BASS SET UP. NO DENTS OR DINGS, JUST LIGHT SCRATCHES FROM NORMAL WEAR AND NO EXTRA HOLES DRILLED.

Cheers
