But these aren't curved. That's what I'm confused about.Hard to see for sure but that looks like a regular Ludwig Disappearing spur. Ludwig had two kinds of spurs that were physically installed on the drum. This type and the fold out style. Most catalog outfits were shown with the fold outs but you could order either style and this type was used on the Jazzette, Club Dates, and Standard drums. They could be specified for other sets.
well there's the answer to your question..It's um....ahem.....a 26". And my hands are starting to shake.
Really? I've been searching for one of these for years. Late 60s anyway.What was it about champagne sparkle and larger sizes? Most of the big bass drums from the 60's I have seen (24-26) have been champagne sparkle. I think it just must be coincidence for me. Still there are not a lot of Ludwig bass drums from the 60's larger than a 22". This drum looks awesome!
