I picked this little 3 x 13“ Ludwig snare recently on eBay. It was in great condition and I received it. I did swap out the calfskin heads for Remo ‘s. I have also gone ahead and installed a modern butt plate so that I could install modern snare wires as opposed to the old chord style. I have...
Hey everyone, do any of you recognize this shell? It’s 6 3/8” deep, 14” in diameter, and drilled for 6 lugs with 3 1/2” hole spacing. There are a couple marks as you can see in the photos, but I can’t make heads or tails of them. Any help is appreciated.
I have picked up a 16” floor tom to convert into a kick drum.
I can’t seem to find any information on this particular make.
Have you seen similar or know details about the make?
Thank you in advance for taking the time to reply.

I recently came upon a pre-serial brass super Ludwig 14x5" in phenomenal shape for $45. Didn't know exactly what it was beyond something in the vein of a supra til I had it in my hands and felt the weight, then a little detective work helped me to the right conclusion. As if simply holding such...
I am new to the forum. I am curious to find where an old black beauty has wound up after 10 years and if there has been any new history that has been added. I've always loved vintage gear and hearing the history behind an instrument.
The drum was bought new in 1976/77 by Tommy Davitt (a...
This is a 5"x15" 6-lug Theatre Model from the early 1920s. This is a heavy 2-piece shell that is definitely players grade. Most notably the throw-off has been replaced with a P-83 which required two small holes in the shell. This was done professionally and, in my opinion, is an upgrade from...
Hey everyone. Thanks for your help.
Could anyone help me identify this Ludwig snare? s/n 1891042. I bought it SH in 1985 but it's from the 70's.
It has the pointy Blue and Olive badge (should mean it's for the early 70's) but the serial number does not make it clear as to when its from. It...
