    A vote for Ambassadors on the two piece shells too.

    A Jazz Festival snare for $2,320.00?

    Without seeing the link, we know whose auction that is. Good old P00der/Lee County/The Old Drumshop, right? That same drum's been on the market for a couple years now at an exorbitant price. :rolleyes:

    Ludwig Supralite

    RickP, you might be right but I don't hang out there much. I think a least a few people who appreciate vintage Ludwigs would be interested in this. Ludwig has been putting out a bunch of gear lately that would appeal to the vintage crowd (for example, the reissue Special Edition Acrolites). This...

    1920's Ludwig & Ludwig 6-1/2 x 14" Black Beauty

    That drum is in remarkable condition! :occasion5: If it were mine, I'd replace the strainer with the correct version as Mike C. suggested. Your drum, by, the way, if it is anything like my 20s 2-piece 6.5" 8 lugger, sounds phenomenal and records like a champ. I have narrow PureSounds instead...

    Has anybody heard of the " RICH " drum company ?

    The bearing edges appear to be different than WFL and Gretsch of the period. Perhaps the Rich company used custom shells. The round contact points of the lugs look pretty cool too - wish we could see some hardware. Here's a late 40s/early50s WFL bearing edge to compare: Here are a couple...

    Ladies and Gents meet the Aerolite

    Classic! I would think a better name would be a Supralite? Or an Acrophonic? Aero vs Acro is just one letter off - weird that the seller never considered the information on the name was just a typo or mistake considering he did research and couldn't find anything. In the same way, weird that it...

    Ludwig & Ludwig snare..need info!

    Mike is the guy to ask and he is right about Cape Cod cloths. Another one that I've had success with is Nevr-Dull wadding. The finish would have been nickel like the ones in the photo below. The strainer, called the Combination strainer can work well when in good adjustment (mine works well on...

    MY AKG D12E died . . . sniff . . .

    Note - Beta 52 may have a slightly more modern sound out of the box than you are looking for. But give it a shot; it's not too steep in price and I've gotten great results. I much prefer it to the D112.
