    Evans Uno 58/Genera Reso

    I'm looking to replace all the heads on my toms. My 18" Floor Tom came with an Evans Uno 58/Genera Reso head, but I can't find it for sale anywhere. Will a regular Evans G1 clear sound as good as this (with Evans G2 clear on top)? For reference it's a Ludwig 3-ply (maple/poplar/maple) with...

    Interesting Ludwig Development - 5" Acrolite no longer 8 lugs...

    I have a good friend who tried to place an order for a new Acrolite because he couldn't find any 8-lug models, come to find out that Ludwig is no longer offering an 8-lug version of the Acrolite. He asked me if I had heard of this and it was news to me, so I figured I'd give everyone an update...

    Help Identify Ludwig Super Sensitive?

    I purchased this snare today as I initially thought it was a Ludwig super sensitive without a badge, however, I just noticed the “imperial” lugs have only 2 tiers instead of 3. The throw off and butt plate also don’t have any Ludwig markings on them. I am now curious as to what I just bought. It...

    Wrap discoloration

    Hello all. I picked up a WMP pioneer dated May 4 1966 (happy star wars day) for $350 and it’s a bit discolored. Not horribly but enough to make me want to get it back to as true as possible if at all doable. Any tips for cleaning and whitening a wrap like this? Thanks in advance!! Would also...

    Poll: best rewrap color for Jazzette

    If you had to rewrap a Jazzette kit, what color would you choose besides mahogany or natural maple thermogloss? Is there something about the sizes that would make you enjoy one color over another? Cheers, Benny
