    Another new name for Ludwig drums

    Most of us on this forum are familiar with some people reading the 70's Ludwig logo upside down and referring to them as "biman" drums. Well, I've discovered a new name for Ludwigs. I've been seeing drums on eBay from Japan referred to as Ludwig "Radic" (or sometimes Radick) drums. I'd see a...

    Looked at an interesting Ringo kit today

    Saw an ad on FB Marketplace for a Vintage Ludwig drum set in original cases. Looked at the 2 posted pictures and saw BOP so I sent a message. When I saw the kit in person today I was slightly underwhelmed. The owner of the kit inherited it from her uncle who died about 7 years ago, but hadn't...

    The title pretty much says it all. Prefer chrome hardware, but let me know what you've got. Thanks.

    Interesting Prototype drum kit on eBay with keyless tuning lugs The pictures and description speak for themselves. Interesting concept, but I would think that it would take a lot of finger strength to achieve any higher tuning ranges.

    Unusual MIJ snare drum find

    I just picked up an unusual MIJ snare drum on Craigslist. It’s an Apollo Megatone 5x14 steel shell snare with a Super Sensitive type parallel throwoff. It was made by Star. For a MIJ stencil snare drum, this thing is a beast. It weighs in at 11.5 pounds mostly because of a super thick steel...

    Interesting drum company connection

    I own an older PDP Rat Rod snare drum shell and I decided to strip the hardware off of it to refinish the rather ugly flat black maple shell. I had a laugh after I removed the badge and looked at the back of it. The PDP badge was made from recycled aluminum stock that was already printed for...

    Craigslist Score

    I was checking out Craigslist yesterday when an ad for Snare drum and stand caught my eye. I pulled up the ad and saw two very bad pictures (See the first 2 pictures below). The price was cheap and I could see what I thought were Imperial lugs so I sent an email to the seller. A couple of hours...
