Re: Bizare Ludwig Shell, help!

Another possibility is that a prior owner stained the inside. Looks like the bearing edge is also stained. 6 ply shells were maple/poplar. Both light colored woods. Looking at the holes for the...

Re: No more slave pedal please!

The Sonor, and the Off-Set (I had one of those) are both center pedals, but differ from the Sleishman in that they both use drive shafts. In essence you wind up with two slave pedals.

Re: No more slave pedal please!

The Sleishman is a double pedal (invented around 1971) that has no traditional primary side and "slave" side. Both pedals are chain drive primaries.

Re: Researching my First Vintage Kit, Suggestions Please :)

Ludwig made their own shells. Early 70's shells were maple/poplar/maple. That changed in 1976, when Ludwig went to the 6 ply shell. Before 1968, Ludwig was using mahogany/poplar/maple. The Ludwig...

Re: Ludwig Snare Find....worth anything?

My guess would be a 14x10, that was cut down.

Re: Vistalite Bass Drum tuning

OK ..... now the PS3 head is a single ply head. Built like an Ambassador head with a richie ring. A PS4 would be a two ply. Built like an Emperor head with a richie ring. Now, you've essentially...

Re: Vistalite Bass Drum tuning

One thing this guy mentions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOjhMyYqEO0 is that these (Bonham Vistalite reissue) drums sound open and ringy ..... and much different mic'd. So you do have to factor...

Re: Vistalite Bass Drum tuning

Certainly you could try the Aquarian II, but that's very similar to a Remo Pinstripe (which you shot down in an earlier post). Didn't you have a Powerstroke 3 on your batter? Maybe try that as a...

Re: Bonham amber vistalite purchase/questions

If the Powerstroke3 isn't working for you, a Pinstripe (batter) would be the next pre-muffled head I'd try. I'm not a big fan of Pins on wood shelled drums, but I use 'em a lot on Vistalite, as...

Re: Can you fix this tom?

What year, and what type of shell? I'd guess the mount is overwhelming the shell. The Swiv-o-matic and Memriloc tom mounts are both rather large, for a 10" drum. Switching to a RIMS style mount will...

Re: Just starting at 53 and will need all the help I can get!

Mehmets are great cymbals. I have 6 Mehmets, 2 Agops, and 1 pre-split. I also have 8 Masterwork, and 1 Buzin (comparable brands). Try out as many as you can, and find out what series you really...

Re: Just starting at 53 and will need all the help I can get!

Exactly. The hi-hats and the ride are typically used to propel the music. The crash highlights the music.

Re: Ever have a drums finish sway you away from purchasing it?

Yup. I like blonde wood. Natural finishes. And a nice yellowed, aged patina.

Re: 78/79 Ludwig 18x16 Thermogloss Floor Tom

Another option, replace two of the tom legs with Ludwig fold-out spurs (or copies). With the remaining leg mount, you can use it for an L-arm (or not). Lots of 18's are played on the floor, without a...

Re: How to make my vintage ludwig sound better

Here's catalog pages for Ludwig drum sets. http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/ludwig_drumsets.html Ludwig had Quadra-plus and Octa-plus kits, but the toms were concert toms. So, I'd guess your father...
