    Ludwig Drums 2022

    It looks like Ludwig is gearing up for a great 2022. So far what they have come out with is awesome. Does anyone have any ideas of what else they are planning to release this year? I saw their teaser on Facebook and it’s got me pumped.

    Billy Corgan Vistalite Kit - Reverb

    Billy Corgan is the latest member of the celebrity Reverb seller club where everything is well used and overpriced. This is a pretty cool looking kit though. Is this factory Ludwig? https://reverb.com/item/44994813-ludwig-vistalite-drum-kit-owned-by-billy-corgan

    Ludwig’s Recent LE Metal Snare Drums - Thouhts?

    What does everybody think about the last few limited edition brass snares from Ludwig? One is red, one is white, and one is blue. I actually love the red, but it’s only offered in 8-Lug, so that kills it for me. In general though, I love the idea of the colored metal Ludwig snares. I think they...

    These are some of the most musical sounding vintage drums I have ever had the pleasure of playing. I have owned a 12/14/20 configuration in just about every vintage brand from this era and this is by far my favorite kit of the bunch. Every drum SINGS. I've also never seen chrome this pristine on...

    Sleeved Washers or related products, do they really work?

    I know that this kind of products work for several purposes, but to be honest, I only want to use them to eliminate the detune of the tension rods, in my case I'm going to use them for the snare. Now I only have the metal washers that came with it, so I'm planning to add the sleeved washers...

    Thoughts on Ludwig Supralite snare (6,5x14")?

    I'm attracted to the price of the supralite, but I have read that it has some problems, like lugs that are stripping out easily and also problems with the snare wires. Has anyone had this kind of problem with the supralite? or some other problem?

    Vacuum Drum Storage?

    I recently purchased some large Space Saver vacuum bags for storage at the house and realized they might be awesome for long term drum storage. I figure if the drums are vacuum sealed, the bags should slow oxidation of the chrome? So I tried it out and included a silica packet in each one. I...

    My Playing From 2012

    I came across this video from 9 years ago when I was only 20 years young. It’s me playing the kit for a contest. Only a minute long. It’s really cool to look back at stuff like this just to see how much I’ve progressed. It’s also fun identifying my old habits and limitations on the kit. I’ve...

    Can you tune a snare electronically?

    Hello, I'm a pop producer and most of the time use MIDI for my productions, especially my drums. There was a particular snare that I heard from a YouTube video online that I would like to learn how to duplicate on my own - electronically. Is there a way I can tune a similar sounding snare that I...

    New Channel and some programming/content...

    Hey All, I started (or rather re-started after a decade) a YouTube channel. Inspired by our current situation, it is called, for now, “Quarantine Music” (I’ll need something better when this is all over!). Lots of short clips with lessons, how to’s, instrument demos, photo essays and visual...
