    I have a recent addition LM404, can't find a date stamp, no # on the Keystone badge. It has a paper tag on the interior with, I'm guessing a serial #, 3HE083762. Previous owner says he bought it at GC in 2019?? Can any of you Ludwig gurus give some help dating this drum? Drum has Remo heads...

    30 years - Same kit

    I seem to max out at about 5 years before a change, I have a few drum bits I've picked up along the way that are 20+ years. But no kits. I like Pearl drums, but no recommendations, they've got a LOT of great stuff, and their tom arms are the best :laughing6: Welcome to DFO

    Warped vintage cymbals........how do they get that way ??

    My first thoughts, stand knocked over, dropped, stepped on, or run over with car/truck/van/trailer. It happens. In my experience, there is usually cracking/tearing involved with a poorly tensioned cymbal.

    Sentimental value of gear!

    I've said "never" a few times, then after some time passed, I've let them go. There has been some sellers remorse on occasion. It's been a catch and release program here all along the journey.

    Guitar Polish on Lacquered Drums?

    Meguire's car products, paste wax, cleaner/wax, liquid wax, spray on detailer. Pretty much I've used them all at one time or another. No issues. Good results.

    Is this cymbal inverted?

    That's inverted. All of those holes have destroyed the tension, someone has stomped on the H-H and it collapsed. Put the cup on your knee, hands on the edge and give it a quick tug, kinda' pop it. Should come right back. Be gentle with it, or it will invert again.
