I read that was a 6.5x15 two piece Ludwig - anyone know for sure?
Yes, it is. I have one.
Can you compare it to the 14"? Is it 1" louder ;) LOL

I have a 5x14 NOB and it's one of my favorite drums. I'd love to put stick to a 6.5x15. What are your thoughts about the drum.

Thanks,

Jeff

If anything, it's darker due to the larger diameter. I love it. Had to take off the gut wire and replace with standard metal wires. Love it. One of a kind drum.
