    My new Legacy Mahogany kit! And a question

    Congrats on that gorgeous kit! Actually, I was thinking of going the other direction with my Legacy Mahogany kit. I got it when it was very recently released, and it was first known through Ludwig as "The Beast", a name and a configuration which they since dropped. 10x14, 16x16, 16x18, 14x26...

    How reliable are cymbal sound files/ video files?

    Though I "get it", I am often intrigued by those who would not consider a cymbal purchase without a sound file. Years ago, I attempted to purchase new cymbals from a company who I believe was trying hard to be accurate and yet, I never found a cymbal that actually sounded closer than shall we...

    Drummer autographs

    Buddy Rich, who signed for me after a brief chat on his bus, Ginger Baker at a drum clinic before I realized that I could have potentially gotten my nose broken, Bill Bruford at a drum clinic at which he told amazing stories, Dennis Chambers at a drum clinic where while shaking his hand I...

    My new favorite Ludwig snare; what is it?

    Unless I missed it, no one commented that the snare has a die cast rim on the top but a triple flange one the bottom. I remember seeing a Stewart Copeland Tama snare like that. I doubt the top hoop was original. Love the snare wires. That snare seems versatile. It's got to be a great drum...

    Now THIS is a drum set

    Nice! I remember Slingerland offering a 20" floor, but not Ludwig. I was hoping to hear When The Levee Breaks...

    Commentary Requested on Evans UV2 Drumheads for snare and toms

    What an informative response! Thank you so much for the commentary and the videos. I would love to hear them wide open if that is not inconvenient for you to do. I am "subtracting the tape" in my mind, and these might be perfect. Thank you again!

    Commentary Requested on Evans UV2 Drumheads for snare and toms

    Rumble yes, but perhaps "tremor" is closer! Yes, every bit of information helps. Thank you.

    Commentary Requested on Evans UV2 Drumheads for snare and toms

    Yet these are Legacy Mahogany not Legacy Maple and are incredibly resonant. You should hear the 14 x 26 bass! From the videos I have seen and the little that I have read, these UV2 heads seem to respond differently than typical double ply heads and I was just wondering in what way(s). Thank...

    Commentary Requested on Evans UV2 Drumheads for snare and toms

    I would be very interested to hear what those familiar with the Evans UV2 heads think about them in actual practice. While I love the big resonance of my 3 ply Ludwig Legacy Mahogany drums, I notice that if they begin to get out of tune, the single ply heads seem quite unforgiving, producing a...

    Acrylic snare tone

    I had Ludwig Vistalites back in the day which I loved, but I loved them most since I was going to be John Bonham. I also loved Stainless Steel drums, but mostly since I was going to be Carl Palmer. I do love the crispness of those stainless steel toms, but nothing sounds like wood(s). I now...

    Your BEST Cymbal?

    Yeah, hsosdrum, I actually have a 70s (I think) A. Zildjian China that is 30" even. Here are pictures of the 30+ ride, along with a 50's Hollow stamp paper thin 26", and a photo of a set of hi hats: the 26" thin atop the 30" China:

    DW to buy Guitar Center

    April Fool's Day or not, I have been hearing about this possibility for at least a month now... I just cannot imagine how it could possibly work, sell one brand of drums or compete against yourself.

    Tom above hats? and other unusual setups

    If you can get by with a Roto Tom, it (or they) are much easier to put over the hats without having to make height changes:

    Oh, how BORING! A thread on Drum Thrones??? Now with POLL

    Though I have not decided yet, this is perhaps where I am headed, but with a backrest.

    Oh, how BORING! A thread on Drum Thrones??? Now with POLL

    One more thing King Ludwig, though I REALLY like the way the Ford thrones look to be built, I suppose the company is out of business (of course) since I cannot find them anywhere! :banghead:

    Oh, how BORING! A thread on Drum Thrones??? Now with POLL

    Though I will not spring for a P & D, I love the way the Fords seem to be constructed. The SoundSeat is raved about, though they look a bit like office gear... Thanks again KingLudwig. P.S.: Your name just reminded me! The 1974 Vintage Ludwig pancake throne I have, though not plush and a...
