I'm looking for baseball bat mufflers for the Ludwig Club Date set I just picked up. The 13" tom has part of a muffler. The 16" floor tom has a red felt muffler for the batter side installed and there are holes for in the shell for a muffler on the resonant side.

I read the new Ludwig baseball bat mufflers are made by Canopus. Is this still true? It looks like the only difference between the Ludwig and Canopus mufflers is the Ludwig have red felts and the Canopus have the white felts. Of course the Ludwigs are 15 bucks more.

Yes, the Canopus are a direct, drop in replacement for vintage Ludwig parts. And your are correct, the only differences between Ludwig / Canopus are the color of the felt pads and the price.

Yes, they fit perfectly. I put the Canopus on a vintage Jazzette set I restored a few years ago. If I recall, they also have a push type lock function so the muffler stays in place. If you can find them, just do it!
