    Ludwig Atlas Classic modern flat-based cymbal stands; seeking user-feedback

    Great feedback, thank you. I kind of wish they had memory locks. What you’re saying about the nylon inside the tubes... I experienced that years ago w/their 80s/90s heavy duty hardware (ironically). Though I’m guilty of being an over-tightener. Back then especially, not so much now.

    Ludwig Atlas Classic modern flat-based cymbal stands; seeking user-feedback

    Thanks! I’m kind of with you about the feet. Like the idea, but they look a little weird, especially if using the bottom chamber. Happen to have a pic of the feet you’re using?

    Ludwig Atlas Classic modern flat-based cymbal stands; seeking user-feedback

    Thank you, but I think you’re referring to the vintage ones (which I also have). I’m asking about the modern “Atlas Classic” series of flat-based stands. I’ve edited the title of my post to be more specific. Thanks again!

    Ludwig Atlas Classic modern flat-based cymbal stands; seeking user-feedback

    I’m likely going to pick up a few of the modern Atlas Classic flat-based straight cymbals stands, but wanted to hear from anyone that’s really put em through the paces by gigging on them regularly. Just a couple of questions about things I’ve heard that give me pause: Any issues with build...

    WFL 401 and 403 snare drums.

    A buddy of mine here in L.A. (who I'm guessing might chime in eventually) has a 5". I'm not positive, but I think I recall it being a Trans badge. Could be wrong. Amazing drum though! I got to play it a bit one night.

    Last week's L.A. CL score - 70s Luddy 3-ply 12/14/18/24

    Hey all, Very happy w/this find & wanted to share. Thanks to a fellow DFO-er & close friend in Tulsa (who’d like to remain nameless) for finding this listing right after it went up & texting me as I was travelling back from a run in TX last Sunday. I'd casually been looking for a 14x24 &...

    Help with Ludwigs

    awesomeness is what's there. :) looks like a Super Classsic 13/16/22, w/a Supraphonic snare. would be amazing if the snare was actually a COB "Super," but too hard to tell by the pic. Speed King pedal, 1123-1? hi hat stand, original throne. cymbals, Zildjian? is that red a "sparkle?"

    Why?! did Ludwig move tone controls to above the badge in the 70s

    Oh, but of course. Makes perfect sense. But I still don't love the looks of it :). Thank you both!

    Why?! did Ludwig move tone controls to above the badge in the 70s

    Does anyone know the reason for this move?! To me, it seems functionally less practical, as well as asthetically detracting to the beauty of the badge. It bugs me, and I just can't think of any practical reason they'd do it. Insight, anyone? Thanks!

    What do you guys think about this odd Ludwig snare?

    Perplexin'!!! If it wasn't for that particular badge being on that particular shell, I'd say someone made a mutt. And that's assuming the badge is original/factory-installed. I'm guessing someone replaced that tone control, as to my knowledge, Luddy didn't have any like that. But otherwise, very...

    WTD: Ludwig 3-ply 14x24 & 16x18 orphans - for resto, shells or complete

    Hi all, I'm looking to add a 14x24 & 16x18 to one of my Luddy kits. Open to WFL/Luddy KB era or B/O era, complete drums preferred, but shells-only also an option. 3-ply only. I could go a few different routes w/this project, but I'm trying to do it at the lowest possible cost (aren't we all?)...

    Slingy RK vs. Luddy lug hole spacing... same?

    As I hunt for a 14x24 Luddy 3-ply suitable for a guilt-free re-wrap, I came across someone w/a Radio King shell that's kinda tickiling my fancy. My first question, since I'm not super acquainted w/the ins & outs of Slingys is, would the lug hole spacing be the same if I wanted to dress her all...

    early 70s Luddy edges

    after many years, just noticed on my 71-72ish kit, the kick seems to have a less rounded edge than the accompanying 13 & 16. were they making the edges less rounded over at that point, or could this kick have been alterered? it's not crazy sharp, but it's also not as round as the toms.
