    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    I haven't measured, but to my eye they look a bit crooked as well. I posted this on a Gretsch FB group to see if others had this issue and there's someone who was sent 4 snares because of this issue. 4! and the last one still had the issue.

    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    also, I didn't mean to hijack this thread. just making you aware of an issue you may encounter if you go with the Broadkaster and get the snare as well. the rest of the kit is great, however. the rep. I have been dealing with said he forwarded my email with pictures along to several people...

    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    if I align one hoop hole with the lug then the next one is a little off, then the next one is more off, and so on. I think there's something wrong with their measurements where the holes are not drilled correctly.

    Gretsch & Ludwig custom order experiences?

    the Broadkaster snare that came with the kit I bought from a retailer had lug splay issues. I sent that snare out and received a new one under warranty. The new snare has the same exact issue, so they are in the process of building me another one. This lug problem seems to be very common for them.

    they look like Ludwigs to me- you can see the keystone badge on the floor tom in a few of the pictures.

    Used market drying up?

    $2 a drum- that's incredible haha. I am in the same boat (only a lot less monitors), but I work from home and am constantly checking for deals. I've gotten a couple of good ones, but missed out on some really good ones by one person.

    if you click on your city, which should be on the left side of the page under 'filters' you can change the distance.

    Used market drying up?

    if you use FB on mobile it only allows you to set it to 100 miles. if you use a computer you can set it to 500 miles. I do this from time to time and end up getting disappointed because when I do find deals it's the people who know nothing about drums and they are unwilling to ship.

    Used market drying up?

    I feel like locally for me Craigslist has been pretty dead for awhile. seems like most people post stuff on FB marketplace these days.

    12x24 Single Tension Bass Drum

    I was actually interested in doing that initially, but at the time had too much gear coming in. I've seen several field drums for low prices too over the past few months and passed on them, which I am kicking myself for. I suppose I'll keep an eye out now.

    12x24 Single Tension Bass Drum

    thanks for the heads up! added a price. it looked like this when I bought it: I'd like to keep it, but it's kind of the odd-man out right now and probably won't see much play time.

    12x24 Single Tension Bass Drum

    looking to sell this 12x24 single tension bass drum. it appears to be an old marching drum that the previous owner added legs too (and spray painted). I stripped it down and refinished it. I've done some research and asked around, but haven't been able to come up with a brand. it thumps pretty...
