    Pad work before kit practice

    Eric Moore- Get Your Freak On

    Is Ludwig missing the boat on Acros?

    Not the first time Luddie has screwed the marketing pooch. In the ’80s they went from #1 to #0 in field drums because designs changed and they never caught up. Their low-end brass snares use different brass shells than the BBs but still chew away at their market. Sounds like they’re doing the...

    Finish Matching
