OK I got a bit of a weird one here. Last night I debuted my lastest aquistion. A 1970 Ludwig SS kit. I absolutely LOVE this kit (Thanks Jon!). Heres the deal: Ive never been a fan of Ludwig curved spurs (especially the older thinner ones). They ALWAYS creep for me (creep nothing, until I tied the drum with rope to my throne I was kicking it across the room). The drum had a few extra holes when I got it, plus I added a Yamaha mount (its a player kit). I used the esisting large hole from the Ludwig double holder (I dont like these either) and had to drill 4 holes for the mount. The other issue is the Yamaha mount is closer to the batter head than normal. Heres my thought. I desperately need to add modern spurs to this drum. I thought I could kill 2 birds with one stone by turning the drum around and adding the spurs where the current batter head is. This will put the Yamaha mount 'further away" or closer to the "new resonant' head. Can anyone see why this might not work? And please purists, as I said, its a PLAYER drum. My question isnt whether or not to drill the drum (that descion is already made), its a question of postioning of the spurs. Thanks in advance for your input!
