    Flat Bearing Edges?

    My understanding is that among the benefits/characteristics of round-over bearing edges is that more of the edge is in contact with the drum head, which tends to dampen the drum head slightly and which engages more of the tone of the shell in the overall sound of the drum. In light of that, how...

    Has anyone bought any B-stock drums and is it worth it?

    Beautiful drums! I haven’t played a Ludwig snare with die cast hoops on it. They must sound awesome!

    "All woods sound the same" - is this a new song?

    I think that the species of wood has a minimal effect on the sound of a drum, and that the heads, and how they are tuned, have the biggest effect.

    "Groove Is In The Heart" : Deee-Lite

    Not a big dance band fan, but, love this song. Must be the slide whistle. For some reason it seems to bring this song to mind:

    "All woods sound the same" - is this a new song?

    Does this prove that different wood species produce different sounds? That different shell thicknesses produce different sounds? The drum on the right has a higher pitch. I’d guess it is the drum with the thicker shell.

    Who are your 5 fav drummers?

    Check out this opening drum part by Steve Cobb. One of my favorite openings ever. And, the choked timpani (not sure who plays it), beginning at about :38 seconds is just badass!

    What's Up with Acrolite Values ?

    I think your’s is the first bad review of an Acro I’ve seen. I have a 70’s B/O badge Acro that I put heavy rims on and I love the way it sounds - a dry thwock with a metallic tone is how I would describe it. Not thin to my ear.

    What's Up with Acrolite Values ?

    I have to wonder why an Acro would sound bad. Bad heads? Defects in the shell? It’s the same aluminum shell as a Supra, and, my understanding is that they come with heavy duty rims now.

    What's Up with Acrolite Values ?

    According to the Casio catalog from Winter 2011 the the 5x14 listed at $464, selling price $299. In the Casio catalog from Winter 2019, the list price was $660, selling price $429. That’s why used one’s are so high now.

    Update!! I bought a new kit! (Classic Maple's)

    Guessing maybe they accidentally double sold the kit you bought and Ludwig sucked it up and sent you a new one. I would think the only price difference would be the cost of a bass drum mounted double tom holder. That virgin 18x22 is gonna be a cannon.

    My FIRST set of Ludwigs!

    Looks like a project! I’ve seen that before where old Ludwig silver sparkle darkens to more of a champaign sparkle. Oxidation I think. Good luck!
