    Ludwig: was/is it a snare or a tom?

    Happy Thanksgiving all! Just purchased a snare, no pics yet because it has not been delivered. But here is the interesting theory…. In late 1969 through 1970, Ludwig only made three versions of a 10”x14” wooden drum: 1- double headed tom 6 large classic lugs 2- concert tom 8 small classic...

    Ludwig modular love!

    Hey everyone! Here is my relatively new acquisition kit from a friend/drummer who used this in the early 80’s to back up two famous Jersey boys for almost a decade. I set it up “quad modular” style in my son’s studio, and backwards “Grombacher” style in mine. Enjoy!

    Signing drums for history

    Hi everyone! I have been thinking about this for awhile. Let’s start a trend! I know Bun E does this, but I think this is a great idea to sign the inside of your drums. It creates a lineage and history for them. The civil war and turn of the century drums that have names and other information...

    Mix-matching your whole kit, whose guilty?

    Happy snow Friday! Well at least in Southern Illinois. I am at the age, point, experience that I just use what I feel like, or does something to my ear, soul, and mood. But I guess I am guilty of the drums matching (minus snare). The kit usually matches, Snare, nope, Stands, not even close...

    Ludwig P-86 strainer no more?

    I do not know if I missed this one already, but if you go to Ludwig's site, or download the "outfitter," the P-86 millennium strainer does not show up as an option. Well......if you take this one away, bring back the P-70 super sensitive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
