    Darwin... Is this a Jasper or Keller shell?

    Great. Seems that I have the desirable Jasper shells. Now I must deside whether to cut the toms down or not :rolleyes:

    Darwin... Is this a Jasper or Keller shell?

    Hi! I recently acquired a Darwin drumset and wonder if the shells are Jasper or Keller. I attached some pictures from the rack tom shell. Maybe the experts know the answer. Shell thickness is about 5 mm..

    1980's Pearl confusion

    Bass drum spurs are not original. I guess it's a pre-BLX 6-ply birch kit, early 80s. Maple drums usually had "Maple Shell" badges. I have a great sounding kit from that era with the same badges. There are paper tags in Japanese language inside the shells.

    20's NOB 14"x5" Ludwig(?) Snare... experts welcome

    @AaronLatos, Thanks a lot! I didn't know that there were two versions of the 2-piece shell. Indeed it sounds unbelievably fat for a 5" deep drum. I would love to find a 6,5" 2-piece drum, but they seem hard to come by... I will keep my eyes open for some heavier hoops although I really like the...

    20's NOB 14"x5" Ludwig(?) Snare... experts welcome

    Hi! I have a 14"x5" Nickel over brass 6-lug Snare which I believe is a Ludwig Pioneer or Universal. But I'm not sure, maybe some of you can help. No badge on the drum, only a few holes, three of them maybe for a muffler? No script on the brass rims, original throw off seems to be a Ludwig 338...

    Paiste Advice (SCDR, 602, etc.)

    cdrummer, be sure to check some soundfiles of the SC Dark Crashes. They are quite heavy and not everyones taste. I once had a 20" Dark Crash and mostly used it as a ride.

    Paiste Signiture full crash

    I've been using an 18" Sig Full Crash for nearly 15 years now, and although my other cymbals have changed a lot since then this one is a keeper for sure. It's bright, but still very musicaI and sounds great even when struck light. I have been using it a lot with my Ramones cover band. No dents...

    Calling all Slingerland experts

    Hi, I just came across some Slingerland drums. One was a 1940s 14x7" Super Gene Krupa Radio King snare with 16 Beavertail lugs (model #155) in WMP which is legit for sure. The other is a 24x14" Bass Drum with the streamlined lugs. Could anyone tell me if this drum is legit ? I wondered about...

    Hey Ludwig Experts - Black Beauty Question

    Hi Jeff, I am pretty sure that the Bronze Black Beauties have a "B" or "BZ" stamped above the muffler screw whereas the Brass version has the letters "BR". Greetings Lars

    The guy says it's a 70's COB Supraphonic

    Hi Bun, I once had a 70s Black Beauty, all original with exactly the same sticker inside. But I totally agree with the doubts concerning the badge.

    Ludwig 90th Anniversary Acrolite ??

    I am pretty sure it is a 10 lug drum. Could it be possible that this snare drum was part of the 90th anniversary Fab Four kit ? The picture in the LUDWIG BOOK doesn't show the snare clearly. By the way, thanks for the input and many comments. I knew that in this forum there are the REAL experts.

    Ludwig 90th Anniversary Acrolite ??

    Here are more photos. It's not my drum, but I have the option to buy it and was wondering if anyone of you heard about that drum. It looks a lot like the Black Galaxy finish, but indeed it's strange that the engraving is yellowish. According to the seller these are definitely no decals.

    Ludwig 90th Anniversary Acrolite ??

    Here are two pictures. What looks like the 90th anniversary badge is in fact also engraved. No air grommet, just the hole. There is no other Ludwig badge on the drum, only the LUDWIG engraving above the strainer. Lars
