    A Very Lucky Saturday - Trans Badge Ludwig Find

    I just picked this downbeat kit up from the 2nd owner who bought it in the late 60s. He knew what he had, but wanted to sell it quickly and let it go for just about half of the going price of only the snare. I don't know of I'll ever find another deal this good...

    WTB: Ludwig/WFL Gold Sparkle New Yorker Bass Drum

    Here's another longshot wanted add, but I figure I'll try. I recently finished putting together a pre serial Ludwig gold sparkle super classic kit. I've always loved 12" deep bass drums (I have a 12x18 and 12x20 with other kits) and I would love to find a gold sparkle New Yorker (12" x 22") to...

    Anyone know anything about Sonor Rotary Timpani?

    Well, I was cruising craigslist and saw an ad for 13" and 18" Sonor rotary timpani. They were priced right, so i snagged em. I figured i couldn't go wrong with made in Germany Sonor drums. I haven't had time to mess with them too much, but basically they're tuned by rotating the drum: clockwise...

    WTB: 60s Gold Sparkle Wrap Scraps

    I recently bought an early 60s Ludwig gold sparkle kit with a few extra holes I would like to patch. Unfortunately, all the modern gold sparkle wrap is too orange in tone. If anybody has a few small pieces from a project drum, I would be very appreciative. Thanks!

    Picked Up a Ringo Bass Drum

    I was recently cruising through Craigslist when I saw an add for a "mix drum set". It included 8"x12" and 14"x14" Sonor Force 2005 all birch toms as well as a 1965 black oyster pearl 14"x20" Ludwig bass drum. The seller had it for a very reasonable price and I picked it up that day. I haven't...

    SOLD: Paiste 20" 602 Flat Ride and 14" Sound Edge Hats

    I'm looking to sell my 20" 602 flat ride and 14" 602 sound edge hi hats. Both are in great condition. These are beautiful cymbals, but they just don't blend with my Sabian collection as I would like. I'm looking to sell these for 50% of street price plus shipping. Flat Ride: $250 + shipping...

    Vintage Sky Blue Pearl vs. Modern Ludwig Wrap

    Hey guys, I recently picked up a modern Ludwig classic maple snare in sky blue pearl. Here are a couple pictures comparing it to my '65 Pioneer in sky blue to show the differences between the vintage and modern wrap. I definitely prefer the vintage, un-faded wrap to the modern stuff.

    Best House Drum Set for a Church

    I've been tasked with helping my local church pick out a drum set for their auditorium. It's a large sized room that holds roughly 900 people. The church only wants a 4 piece kit and is trying to keep the price around $2k for just the drums (no cymbals, hardware, etc.). My thoughts were to get a...

    I Bought a Set of Ludwig S/L Drums

    I recently stumbled on a full Ludwig S/L set for $150 on craigslist. The drums looked like they'd seen better days, but all the hardware (classic/mini classic lugs, club date spurs) looked nice and I figured I could always part it out to recoup my money if need be. All the drums have pointy...

    Review: My INDe Bop Kit - Not Just Hype

    A little of my background: I didn't know anything about INDe until I became active on this forum. I really didn't buy the hype and the thought of buying and INDE kit never crossed my mind. I have a little bit of a gear obsession and always like trying new things which means buying and selling...

    FS: Full Set of Sabian Crescent Hammertone Cymbals

    I'm looking to sell my full set of Crescent by Sabian Hammertone cymbals. These cymbals were developed with Jeff Hamilton and are absolutely gorgeous. I've loved owning these cymbals, but I'm just not playing them enough to justify keeping them. They are all in excellent condition with no damage...

    WTB: 6 Ludwig Single Tension Eyelets

    I'm working on a picollo snare drum project and don't think I'll have enough room to fit a full length lug. Does anyone have any of the original Ludwig single tension eyelets kicking around? I would prefer chrome, but nickel works too.

    Ludwig 9" x 13" Cut Down to 2.5" x 13" Combo Snare

    I just picked up a 1964 Ludwig 9" x 13" clubdate style tom. I got it off reverb for $55 shipped. I knew the shell was trashed, but I really just wanted all of the nickel hardware and NOB hoops for another project I'm working on. I figure the good condition nickel hardware is more than worth the...

    WTT: '98 DW Craviotto Snare Signed 5"x14"

    I picked this snare up a year ago. It's in excellent condition even down to the original heads and wires (not pictured). As much as I've tried to love this snare, I just can't get it to sound right to my ears. I'm interested in trades for other high end or vintage snares (Ludwig, DW, Sugar...

    Show Off Your Entire Snare Collection

    I finally got around to snapping a picture of all of my snare drums today and I figured it would be fun to see what else everyone has. Let's keep this to pictures of all your drums together, rather than a bunch of individual snare photos. I think it would be cool to have a bunch of pictures of...

    Tama 5" x 14" King Beat Snare Drum

    I'm looking to free up some extra cash for other drum related purchases, and it's officially time for me to part ways with my King Beat snare. This snare is in very good condition with everything being original other than the heads. The strainer and tone control both work great. There are some...

    Am I The Only One Who Doesn't Like My Craviotto Snare?

    Hey guys, So about 6 months back I was able to pick up a late 90s Craviotto/DW solid maple snare drum. It's 5.5"x14" with a maple shell and is signed by Johnny. The drum is absolutely gorgeous and the workmanship is incredible, but I just can't get it to sound good. I've tried a coated...

    FS: 20" Vintage Zildjian A Ride 2360g - $100

    I picked these cymbals up recently, but I'm just not playing them as much as I should. The first is what I believe to be a 1960s Zildjian ride weighing in at 2360g. Overall it's in good condition with no keyholing and only the expected patina for the age. I'd like to get $125 +shipping for this...
