    Ludwig snare grommet

    I saw a couple Ludwig snare grommets with a seam. Does that mean they have been replaced? I think my Ludwig grommets were all seamless.

    Ludwig 6-ply 70’s

    I’m sure this has been discussed but I’m curious what you think about 70’s 6 ply kits. They seem to hold less value than 3 ply but does anyone prefer them?

    OT- New Cat

    The best cat who ever lived passed away last month. I had him and his sister. Obviously a very grief filled couple weeks followed. The sister cat has been really depressed. She’s never been alone before. So I decided to adopt a new kitten to keep her company. They are still getting used to...

    Sonor Lite Snare

    This is iconic. Just happen to have 2 of the exact drum. Selling this very good condition Sonor lite in Scandinavian birch. Minor pitting otherwise as new. $1,200 plus shipping or pick up in NYC area. Would consider a trade for craviotto solid shell 6.5 snare. Pretty, ain’t she?

    Aliens come down and take you away forever, they say you can only take a suitcase of clothes and 1 kit with 1 bass and 2 toms, 1 ride, 1 crash, and 1 set of hats with supporting hardware (and some sticks). If you don’t already own it they will buy it for you to take with. What kit and cymbals...

    8-Lug Snares

    I don’t know if we give 8-lug snares enough love. Canopus uses mostly 8-lugs for snare. I have a Canopus steel 5” snare drum 8-lug that sounds amazing, I love it. My vintage Ludwig 5” jazz fest and Acrolite are 8-lug. I think every other snare I have is 10-lug. I feel like the drum...

    Ludwig Acrolite official thread

    I’ve gotten into Ludwig Acrolite snares as of recent. There’s quite a few comparison videos of different years models. Since most drummers have one, let’s see a pic yours and post the year if you know it. Let’s open this up to aluminum only Acrolite or Black Acrolite’s. Does anyone have...

    Embracing wabi-sabi

    I’ve been working on Japanese Wabi-Sabi, which is where you embrace an aesthetic flaw as beauty. Follow me here, so if your drum has a scrape in the finish, it actually makes the drum more attractive because of its imperfections. In nature, very few things are aesthetically perfect so it’s...

    Completed my Ludwig snare triology today. Just found a black Acrolite 6.5 snare to add to my 6.5 black beauty and 6.5 hammered bronze. Should be here early next week. Anyone play one of those? Feedback?

    Gretsch with reinforcement rings

    I know it’s been brought up with the photos of Cindy Blackman playing a Gretsch kit with obvious added re-rings. Has anyone tried this? I would assume it would add more focus to the sound and take away some of the ring? I’d really love to hear one. I know a few companies that could add...
