Have you noticed the difference in the angle of snare clips (the metal ends where the wires are soldered)? Obviously this does not apply to gut or individually adjustable set ups.
Looking at the Grover’s which have an extreme “tenting”.
Puresounds offer two styles, one that...
I have some hi hat stands from yesteryear to current.
1960’s Ludwig 1123
1969 Ludwig Standard
1980’s Ludwig atlas
1980’s Tama Titan tilting (not stilt)
1980’s Sonor Protec with Signature clutch
1990’s DW X-hat
Changing things around a bit in my studio. Set up the 99’ cherry classic maples with Mach lugs (8,10,12,14,20, hh black beauty), and because I ordered them without mounts, I can change it up. Decided to use the modular. I love the stuff!
I have noticed lately that the snares/wires seem to lay better with string vs the plastic straps. Obviously this is n/a to super sensitives and extended strainer setups.
Thoughts and opinions.
just scored a cob 71 super sensitive on eBay! 5x14, paper tag, the “B”, but missing the super sensitive system.
$299, but it is a gift for a buddy. I have not received it, and the pictures are not mine but from the auction.
Maybe it is my age, my younger years when I was in college, but I love the Ludwig modular era. The big 6ply maple poplar Chicago shells, the awesome monster twin channel diecast hoops, and the hardware! Not so much on the riveted seams.....
I will post pics later, but am I alone in...
This is the tribute snare, for my mother.
Classic maple, purple shadow, 6.5x14, cast hoops, flat imperial lugs, p-86 and p-33, clear weather master reso, Remo renassaince emperor batter, and Grover bronze/silver wires.
Happy Holidays everyone!
This was the first Christmas without my mom, I lost a friend the week before, and eight more family and friends have passed since mom. Tough year, but faith/family/friends keep me strong.
Then my awesome wife surprised me with a very cool present.... my friend’s 1966...
This was a Ludwig snare I had built as a tribute to my mom, which she loved purple/violet and maple.
It is a 6.5x14 classic maple in purple shadow, cast hoops, flat imperial lugs, p86 throw and p33 butt, with Grover SX silver/bronze wires, Remo renaissance emperor batter and...
I have a wide variety of snare "wires" from gut, to wire wound silk, synthetic, stock Ludwig's, Puresounds, etc... in which I play solo recitals, symphony gigs, and drum kit. I was looking for a different sound, maybe something in between the aforementioned. I have several of Grover's products...
I have been around here for awhile, and I only know a handful of you personally outside of the forum, but I feel like I know a great deal of you from being here.
My mother was a ballet teacher, author, a labonotation pioneer, taught at our church, and a list I could not begin to...
Is Ludwig still making, or offering, the P-70 Super Sensitive throw off, or has it been discontinued?
I have noticed on the site, and in the online literature, there is no mention of it, with the exception of the downloadable configurator Excel file.
Birthday gift from my awesome wife!
1969 Ludwig supraphonic 5x14 "cut b/o" badge, "B" stamp above the muffler, date code "Dec 3 1969", and another larger ink stamp that says "B-something-something".
Put Remo Renaissance Emperor batter on it, and Ludwig Weathermaster snare side, otherwise, all...
