    Today’s pickup: pre-serial COB super Ludwig

    Finally got it dialed in- I put a Evans genera dry head on it which helps reign in the overtones and tightens up the overall sound. It’s an absolute unit of a snare- very loud and intense. A bandanna over it warms it up and fattens the sound, so I might get a big far snare drum for it. It sounds...

    22” Kerope Medium Ride *Traded*

    I have a 20” Agop Mel Lewis I’d be willing to trade.

    Istanbul Agop Mel Lewis 20” Ride

    Ithaca is a great town, by the way. I went to school in Geneva.

    Istanbul Agop Mel Lewis 20” Ride

    Up in Burlington. I’ll work on a video with less noise, but don’t have a more precise scale unfortunately.

    These are classic maples... right?

    The full kit, plus super Ludwig snare. Wish the green was a little more pronounced, but the long lugs are growing on me.

    Today’s pickup: pre-serial COB super Ludwig

    Slightly side note... what’s with this reso head that was on the snare? Never heard of it. Looks... somewhat officially liscenced?

    These are classic maples... right?

    Very cool! No date codes that I can see. They do feel a little lighter, although it’s tough to tell since the hardware is so huge.

    Today’s pickup: pre-serial COB super Ludwig

    What’s the difference between the 20’s BB? That’s one of my dream snare drums.

    These are classic maples... right?

    So here are the plies in one of the toms (both pics from the same drum). Is this 3 ply? I’m pretty bad at being able to tell.

    OT POLL: How long did it take you to vote?

    We all have exponentially more sway over local politics than national. We would all benefit from your example of getting engaged locally. I think Dave Chappelle said something like that once.

    Today’s pickup: pre-serial COB super Ludwig

    I’m interested in how it sounds different as well! I’ve had a 60’s aluminum Supra, a couple acrolites, and a modern brass beauty. Once I get it dialed in, I’ll report back!

    These are classic maples... right?

    Thanks for all the info! I got them, with the COB pre serial supra, 13” black panther snare, plus all sorts of hardware and things for 500. I don’t really need this set but couldn’t pass it up. I might try to sell the set and the black Panther snare and hardware for what I paid for the lot.

    These are classic maples... right?

    Got these on CL today. I’m assuming they’re 90’s classic maples, but does anyone know better than I do? Looks like the bass came with two sets of spurs, only one set remains. They’re a bit nicked up here and there, looks like a 12-13-14-22 (maybe power tom depths). Anyone have an idea of value...

    Have you found your LAST cymbal(s)?

    I got a 22” Agop traditional ride in a trade on here that I can’t imagine ever getting rid of. Too good sounding no matter how you hit it. I also have a 20 signature I got new this spring, and it wins me over again every time I play it. Cymbals get extra appreciation from me if they sound great...
