Hi Tama CW- thanks very much - this is very helpful. We've got the head off it now, so I'll take some pix later, and get them posted. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the original snares. Ours appears to be nickle plated - not sure how to clean that, so suggestions are always welcome. I...
thanks for all of the information everyone. I think this might be a 'transition' drum - that is;
the badge is from the late 20's (according to the rob cook ludwig book), yet the lugs are the ones introduced in 35/36...
I appreciate the help.
Posting this for a friend.
he's looking for a Ludwig sky blue pearl kit (bop config.) - 18/12/14 with a matching snare.
it's doesn't matter the era, if that helps.
if you have one, please PM me, and we'll talk.
Thanks Bun - that make sense, as it appears to have the threaded inserts on the lugs (which were introduced about 1935).
It has the "tan" oval badge. what threw me off was that it said the tan oval badge was used in the late 20's in the Ludwig book.
Here is the picture of the badge.
thanks for the reply guys - much appreciated.
I looked inside the snare and the numbers are X606 - the X being obscured/smudged.
So.. the year portion looks like 06 - what year would that be?
Do you guys have some ballpark idea of what these are worth, considering the condition?
A friend was cleaning up her mom's basement, and came across these drums.
They are in pretty rough shape, but I think they can be cleaned up.
Can some of you experts take a look at the snare. It's got the etched tan oval "USA" badge, which
dates it to later 1920 (per the rob cook ludwig...
Hi Everyone !
I posted this back in May, and now I have some more info. and some pictures.
I think I'd like these to go to someone who collects Premier, and would would want them or need them.
So.. if you know someone who would be interested, please let me know. These will go pretty...
I'd say just sell them as is, get some cash and find the next set you want to flip. I've tried adding "missing parts" before, and it's real hard to get that extra money out of them - just my opinion. $400 seems very reasonable - you should be able to get someone interested. keep going !
Ok - I guess I've gotta chime in here, because, well, because....
I had a Rogers B&B blue sparkle for sale with a BIN - I know it was probably $350 or less (picture attached).
They bought it, stripped every part off of it, and listed everything separately.
It came to my attention, because...
Just a guesstimate would be about $450, because you don't have bottom rims/heads on the toms.
They are good sounding drums though, but the Rogers guys tend to collect the stuff just before this era, making these less valuable.
