    Thoughts on this 70s Ludwig Black Oyster?

    Found this 70s Ludwig kit online for $800 and it has been up for 4 months. Wondering why it hasn’t gone in a flash since that seems too good to be true. Does anyone think they’re fake maybe. I see the B&O badges have seen better days and the hoops and t clamps aren’t original. Any Ludwig guys...

    Late 1970s Slingerland Marching Snare with Custom Wrap

    This is a late 1970s 15x12 Slingerland marching snare from Northwest Webster (NWW) High School in Mason, IA. This drum is the first time I've seen a school-specific custom wrap on a Slingerland marching snare. I'm sure it was not uncommon, but it's a first for me. I thought the color and...
