    Anyone know Ludwig Tom mount history & which do you prefer?

    Hard to see the mount in the pictures but I believe the blue sparkle kit is from 1964 and has a diamond tom mount, and the SBP clubs are from 1966 with post tom mount. What's the history on the Ludwig tom mounts from this time period? I have to say I have never had a problem with the tom on my...

    Help with info on my Gretsch Kit

    Here is my Gretsch Kit all cleaned up. Can anyone help date these drums? I picked up the bass and tom about 4 years ago for a steal on the bay.

    It's 5 O'clock somewhere

    I posted this in the cymbal section, but figured since it's a vintage 70's 14" hollow logo I could post here as well. I'm sure this has been done already, but I bought a $5 clock kit and decided to make some use of cracked or broken "trash/practice" cymbals without scrapping.
