Re: Vintage Ludwig & Ludwig drums

Killer bass drum! I really love those long Imperial lugs. Enjoy.

Re: I can't hear my bass drum when playing live

I always make sure that the guitarist's and bassist's amps are forward a bit, so that the speaker is slightly in front of my ear level. This always helps so that I can hear, and feel, my bass drum.

Re: DW Frequent Flyer Kit

Thanks for the write-up and review taiko. When I saw the kit at NAMM, I loved the sizes, and size of lugs they used. I have a similar sized Blaemire kit that I use for low-volume gigs/rehearsals....

Re: Paul Simon and Sting

I saw this show at the Forum in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago, and agree 100% with 8Mile. I've seen Vinnie with Sting several times before, but had never seen Paul Simon, or Oblon on drums. Very...

Re: JARRAH 14x6.5

Really nice drum! I used to own a Jarrah ply Brady snare, and it was hands down the best wood snare I ever owned. Of course, that's back when I used to play wooden drums. ;-p

Re: Big Ludwigs Incoming

You can try the (DW) method of venting the reso head. I picked up a 1/2" hole punch and add a few holes till it feels right. Two holes in the 20" head, and four holes in the 22" and 24" heads. You...

Re: Drummerworld NAMM 2014 meet up

This is a great idea. Ronn Dunnett shared a space with Crescent cymbals and Joyful Noise, seems to work out great for them.

BTW, had a great time at the show this year. Sorry I didn't meet up on...

Re: Big Ludwigs Incoming

If it is a Black Panther finish, try to take a peek underneath the wrap. Ludwig would sometimes wrap right over some of their slower selling Mod finishes, like Citrus Mod.

Re: Ludwig strainer sucks

DW member "skitch" sells the retroplate.

Another option is to use the R4L that Ronn Dunnett sells. I have the regular R4 on a couple snares...

Re: $300 Black Beauty?

That's a P33 butt plate, which I don't know why they started using on newer Ludwig snares.

To the OP, good job on the conversion, she's a fine player now.

As far as member "tamadrm" is concerned, he is a wealth of knowledge on this forum, especially when it comes to vintage. It's funny,...

Re: criz p. critter's excellent Ludwig adventure...

Re: To chrome or not to chrome...

+1. This, to me, is by far the best way to go. When done right, they shine just as well as chrome. Besides, there's always the risk that it may pit-up again.

Now, I've been thinking of rechroming...

Re: BO!!! SERIOUSLY????

The Jenkins-Martin Drum Co. has precisely recreated the Blaemire shell. The very first drum kit we built was Bermuda's replication of the Hal Blaine "Monster" concert tom kit. We are building these...

Re: Sky Blue Jenkins-Martin drums / Blaemire drums

Hey Robert,

The black/white kit is mine. I just played a gig with them this weekend, and they were a joy to play. They really are incredible drums!

Hey Chris,

I know how bad you've been wanting this snare and I feel so bad that you're not happy with it. As much as you can live with a few things about it, you really need to return it. This is...
