    Sold - 24” 3rd & 4th (Ludwig) Kick - Blue Sparkle

    I believe in early to mid 50's, a 20" kit usually had an 8x12 (or 9x13?) and a 12x14, which did not have legs, but same diamond spade mount as mounted tom, but attached with the count that clamps to the bass drum hoop.

    WFL -> Ludwig

    Lets just agree that, much like a rose would still smell as sweet by any other name, a drum made by William Ludwig, Senior, Junior, or the 3rd (B3 to some) is still a Ludwig drum no matter the company or badge name/branding.

    Stop Saying "Internet Drummers" Aren't "Real Drummers"

    What are you using to weigh cymbals?

    My first small one was plastic, but this Mainstays (Walmart brand) has glass surface and touch sensitive buttons (cheaper plastic have manual buttons which wore out before the rest of the scale gave out). For a cheap one, this scale has been ok, but dont expect a $15 scale to last for many...

    Slingerland Kit age.

    pretty obvious refinished when can see inside lip of badge grommet has been removed and reinstalled, so could be someone bought badges for newer kit, but most likely these are 5 ply shells. If they are not 5 ply, and indeed 3 ply WITHOUT reinforcement rings, then indeed 80's era...not bad...

    Vintage Cymbal Snap is Back

    Yep, just saw on facebook, understand if cant name retailers or sites to order them, but im not finding ANY way to buy these. Not even a list of retailers on the website (only info on how to become a retailer). It seems "are these available" is a legitimate question...if no one is able to buy...

    Is Ludwig's L.A. Tattooist Kit the Most Regrettable Signature Snare/Drum Set of All Time?
