    The DYNA Has Landed!

    Thanks to a DFO brother, I got a matching-era Dyna-Sonic 6.5 snare this week to incorporate into my recently-acquired '80-81 Londoner-Six outfit. It's a "no serial" badge Big-R Dynasonic, the same badge-era as my XP-8 set. Overall, a clean & complete drum in good shape with just a few battle...

    LUDWIG SUPERSENSITIVE COB or Not?

    I'm trying to verify that my 1965 Ludwig Supersensitive snare is a COB model. It weighs a bit over 9 pounds which would seem to indicate that it is. Serial Number is 125796. No pitting. Some have told me Ludwig did not make a COB with serial numbers, but others say they did. It seems like it's...

    SOLD: vintage 1910s COB tango drum / banjo drum / single head snare drum

    Here's something you don't see every day. Vintage single headed tango drum (a.k.a. banjo drum), c. 1910s. These were a budget, more compact alternative to a full snare drum and a brief fad that did not catch on - an obscure piece of history. This drum measures approximately 12" in diameter by...

    I'm in love!!!

    After a bad band breakup, and a 4 year hiatus from drumming I'm finally getting back into playing! I hadn't owned a kit in 4 years, so after deciding to get back into it I went shopping for a decent used kit. I was on a pretty tight budget, but managed to find something WAY beyond my...

    common (to us) abbreviations.

    I've been on the forum long enough to pick up on most of the abbreviations. However some new ones, or infrequent ones pop up from time to time. Most of the long time members are familiar with many of them, but anyone new to the forum probably is not and it would be helpful to maybe lock a topic...

    WFL COB No. 400

    Latest addition to my arsenal. A mid 50s WFL COB No. 400 aka Super Ludwig. I'm beyond thrilled to finally have this drum I've been after for many years. This is how the drum arrived to me & much nicer than expected. One small ding but who cares! The best thing is now a very special drum kit...

    the craigslist ad said 70's ludwig snare.......but the pictures said something else

    we all know the joy of a good score. the ad said 70's ludwig snare, but the picture of the badge was pre serial keystone. 60's drum at a 70's price. i already have a 5 and 6.5 pre serial keystone, so this drum will be cleaned and flipped so i can replace my stereo that just died. craigslist can...

    COB - Engraved by John Alderidge

    This is a 60's COB that John engraved in 86 or so. I had a 4.5" x 15" 20's BB with the 12 pt pattern on it and thought it was a cool pattern. It is a great drum. Tough to photograph with an iPhone, but the yellow brass comes out of the chrome in a cool understated kind of way. I have a cast...

    Help determining shell material - 6.5 hammered Ludwig

    Hi Folks, I got ahold of this lovely tub a little over a month ago. It sounds great. My only complain would be a bit of a penetrating, high pitched overtone that seems to compete with the drum's fundamental. I use a piece of moongel and it sounds lovely: very usable in most of the tuning...

    Gretsch Stop Sign Walnut 22-16-13 SOLD

    SOLD. All t rods, hoops, claws, etc are original and nice. Finish has some minor wear, but really, for its age, it's in nice shape. The original owner put ludwig mounts on the tom, but in a very interesting way, so the two extra holes on the 13 are hidden behind the original gretsch clip...

    Vintage Ludwig COB Supraphonic B/O badge - HELP!!

    Hi guys! I'd love it if you could lend me a hand with this; One of my relatives has passed me a very rare item that I am not going to use and so I'm considering the possibility of selling it. It is a vintage 1971 Ludwig B/O badge COB Supraphonic snare drum. Yes, you read well: a COB...

    Taming the brass snare tone

    I saved up and got myself a new COB supraphonic when Russo had the 25% off deal back in January. I've always wanted one of these as it's kinda like a secret Black Beauty – to the naked eye, it just looks like a normal supra, but if one were to play it (or pick it up) it's clear that there's...

    Lug hole spacing for gretsch USA COB snare?

    A search gave no results...Do any of you know off hand, or have one of these snares to give a measurement for the space for the lug screws? This is from an EBay auction for a gretsch NOS shell. I have a ddrum maple snare I'm frustrated with and am contemplating reusing the hardware. Between...
