    Please help date & possibly identify this old drum...

    A friend of mine owns this antique bass drum. I don't know the wood type or the lay up but it is appox 27" I suspect it's from the late Victorian era and is missing the original rope & tensioners. Those hoop claws are probably the best clue. But i'd love to hear other and better informed...

    Catalog lust.

    Dreaming of gear while looking at catalogs... Probably been covered here 30 times before, but I just rediscovered a little doodle I penciled into my 1975 Ludwig catalog- I would of been around 15 at the time.

    Craziest audition ever...

    Last night I talked to a drummer friend who’s in a local cover band, rehearsals are at his house in a nearby small town. They do pretty well, gig a couple, 3 times a month but after the original rhythm guitarist recently left they have had some trouble finding a fitting replacement. So at...

    OT, the music from Thriller-

    Back in the early 60’s Boris Karloff hosted a TV show named Thriller. It was kind of a wannabe cross between Alfred Hitchcock presents and the Twilight zone. But it always had good musical scores. I just caught a episode late last night that featured a musical theme and somewhat was about...

    OT: Computer question...?

    I recently changed to a newer old computer and really miss a feature. Before when I read a forum topic here it would show the title faded from ones I haven’t read yet. Since it is like that on all of the forums I visit I assume it’s a computer preference and not a site adjustment. Haven’t been...

    OT, Old enough to know better music...

    Coming across this one really caused a fit of nostalgia! I never realized there was film to go with it... I grew up poor and when I received a brand new Montgomery Wards stereo early one Christmas morning it actually was a big deal, at a impressionable time of my life. Along with it came...

    Someone that I used to know cover...

    I did a quick search and didn't find it, but I don't know if this has been posted before...? It's a pretty interesting cover, and I do recall someone had posted the original Gotye version a while back. -Kirk

    Any body know anything about these?

    A early Ludwig & Ludwig 28” tympani... How much are they’re worth? I’d be inclined to flip it. so can the base be easily removed for shipping? I couldn’t find much on line. I’d have to say the condition would have to be called fair. But it is complete and the pedal works. The last patent...

    Ludwig’ers..., Wha?

    Just got this at a garage sale for $20... What the hell is it? Definitely has original wrap, I can clearly see it into the Ludwig style scarf joint. It has nickel plated lugs and part of a chrome throw. That’s not remains of white paint inside, but residue from the putty used to fill the...

    OT: SNOW!

    Seems like we've been getting 3 to 6 inches every other day lately, it's the snowiest winter I can remember in quite awhile. I've lost track of how much is on the ground, but for scale the urn in the first pic has a 19" rim... -Kirk
