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...
This has probably been discussed before, but oh well.
Watched the tribute for Taylor Hawkins, and enjoyed it. Dave Grohl did a great thing.
Hot for Teacher…. Good Lord! Josh Freese, IMO, absolutely killed it! And then Wolfie walks in the room….. Eddie is smiling!
Josh’s intro was...
Brand new in the plastic bag, in the case, in another plastic bag, in the original cardboard box from 1994, purchased by me (while I was recovering from a car accident), from Atlanta Pro Percussion in 1998, has seen the light of day!
After 24 years of ownership, I decided I want to...
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.
20” Symphonic Viennese, I have been waiting patiently for a pair at a non retail price and wow did I get lucky. Zero issues, almost brand new, and for my solo work, studio lessons, and symphony work, they are awesome. $180 total, but had to buy them separately at $90 each!!!!!
First, big thank you to Fork’s in Nashville!
Do you have a Ludwig snare with a classic P-87 throw off, a Vector P-90 throw, or a super sensitive of any era with adjustable gut wires? Here you go…
P-40811A synthetic gut 18 3/8”
P-40812A synthetic gut 19 3/8”
P-1128 brass eyelets...
I have the following:
Rogers 54-1000 Memriloc snare stand base (only 1 original foot)
Rogers 56-2101 Memrioloc extension tube assembly
To swap for:
Ludwig 1308 spur crutch tips P-669, I need 4 of them
Ludwig P-1128 brass eyelets.
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...
I finally got a kit (thanks to my awesome wife!), with an 18" floor (Ludwig of course). I have always had 16's and 14's. Wow! This is cool! Is it big and like lugging another bass drum around?! Who cares! It is a beast! The kit is a 79' Ludwig red cortex 8-10-12-13-14-16-18-22 power tom...
Well, I won’t talk about my March Madness bracket slowly going South….. but…..
In all seriousness, the more I read and post, let alone the friends I have made here, and fantastic transactions, the wealth of shared (and corrected), information and history, is awesome.
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,
Stands, not even close...
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
