    Dropped Facebook

    Yes DFO is social media. And with the like button its very much like Facebook. But I like this tons more than Facebook because at least I can go back and find my threads.

    Cool that you found the correct heads. I have the black dot head but I don't like it much. How did you figure out what heads are period correct? And like I say I bought a sticker for the front with the logo just like yours but the dang thing wouldn't stick.

    Ya these are easily mistaken for those as they have the same shaped badge.

    Thank you Mark! Yes they are 16 deep. The floor toms are 16x14 and 16x16 and keep in mind the lugs are the short snare ones, not the longer ones you see on club dates making those rods longer yet!

    The before would be the same but with the plastic lugs. I will try and get a close up of them later.

    One weird thing that happened during the lug switch out, I had to clean up the rods with a die in order for them to thread nicely. I also ran a tap through the new lug inserts, seems they had a little chrome finish inside of them. Time consuming but worth the effort. Now to finally hear them...

    Thanks Kevin, maybe they will be set up when you come over to help me with the badges. By the way I was looking for a tap and die set the other day and found a flaring tool. So next time I should be able to make my own grommets.

    They are wood shells with a maple cortex wrap. Lugs were plastic so I replaced them all with brand new bow tie lugs from Drumsonsale.com. And yes, the new ones fit the 2 3/16" hole spacing perfectly.

    They are 6 ply maple/poplar, except the 13 (not pictured) is 3 ply with rings. The interiors are maple and have been lacquered. Simple round edges, Ludwig was using whatever thy had laying around to make these. The production of them only lasted a year or so I think. Interesting that you have...

    After purchasing these many years ago I have finally got them safe to play. I replaced the plastic lugs with brand new ones, except the snare it still has the plastic lugs. Spent a lot of money on lugs and new heads but I think these special drums are worth it. I do have the 13 but it is also...
