    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...

    Recommended torque for tightening hardware to snare?

    Hi... I'm trying to replace lugs and throw-offs on my snares. I'm doing this for the first time, so I'm wondering what would be the recommended torque for tightening those? Would those be different depending on snare materials like wood or metal? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hardware ?

    Hi all, Can anybody tell me a size and source for the hex headed screws/bolts that hold a Ludwig lug to the shell. And any idea what torque to use so as not to create a crack? Thanks!
