    A Very Lucky Saturday - Trans Badge Ludwig Find

    This is such a cool drumset. It's got so many things right, not the least of which is that snare. I'm lobbying for leaving the bass hoops as is; I think it adds a lot to the appearance. IAC, i'm happy for you; a tremendous score.....marko

    Re cut bearing edges vs resale value

    I think it's easier to sell a kit with original edges, even if it may not sound too good. I've never turned down a kit because of the sound--there are just too many options to try to improve the sound, ie: tuning, new heads, maybe a slight leveling of the edges. On the other hand, it's harder...

    Vintage Ludwig tag sale score!

    If your bass is 12x20, I guess it's a New Yorker; if it's 14x20, then you've got 2/3's of a Downbeat kit. As suggested by shuffle, a 12x15 marcher converted to a floor tom is probably the quickest, cheapest way to go. They end up as great floor toms. Take pics along the way......marko

    Re-birth of the 1963/65 Slingerland "Modern Jazz" kit

    Nice kits, guys. Really like the rail mount/spade set-up on them, & their blue sparkle is awesome---deep & dark. Somebody's gonna love that SS kit......marko

    Advice for repairing bubbling wrap.

    Sounds like DanC has it. I was going to suggest a damp cloth & an iron; I would think the heat would soften the wrap & the iron would flatten it at the same time. You should probably leave it as is, but, if it were me, I wouldn't be able to walk away without giving it a try......marko

    Would you gig a NOB snare From the 20s?

    I gig this one all the time, but it's not quite the same as yours; it's a '20's 2-piece heavy NOB shell with a nickel P-83, NOB triple flange hoops, & nickel bowtie lugs (which I notched for the center bead). Great rimshots, & cross stick that sounds like a wood block.....marko
