The drum gods are either shining on me or clouds could be forming.

I made three purchases this week. Two big items from DFO members. I gotta learn to stay away from this place.

My Ludwig bopper is no longer just a bopper. Thanks to one DFO member, thank you, Tom, (skinsmans) I purchased a very nice older model 14 X 22" Bass drum that matches my kit really well. He dropped off the drum to me at work so I could check it out before purchasing. He's the real deal and a great person to deal with let alone a great drummer. We live in the same community.

Here's the kit with the 18" bd as purchased and after I made my mods to it.

Here's how it looks as of last night with the 22" BD installed.

The other kit I purchased might be here in about a week and I'll obviously have to post those pictures as well.

My Dad's 1967 Ludwig Club Date was blue sparkle just like that, with the gold badge. I still have a tom from that kit. Don’t know what happened to the rest. I think he traded for something more modern back in the late 80’s.

Skinsmans has a tom also but it was 13" and I have a 12" now. I'd like to locate a 10" and/or 16" depending on how proud of it the owner is. ;)
