Re: club date se

Ahhh, I see, it's all mahogany these days :)
I'm not a big fan of mahogany as an inner or outer ply. I don't mind a bit of mahogany in the middle though. :)

Just had a chance to listen. Nice stuff! I really liked "The Way You Looked"

Re: club date se

So Bo, you were at NAMM and you talked to Jon and the Ludwig gang. Are they being discontinued?
I agree with drumdevil9 that some different finish offerings would bring more sales to the series.

Don't worry, They will always be around either new or used.

In the words of President, Obama;
"If you like the CD rail mount, you will be able to keep the CD rail mount" :) :) :)
He didn't really say that but he would have.

Re: club date se

Just did a search and I see them on numerous sites.
They still appear on the Ludwig site.

Re: club date se

I believe that the edges on the Element kit are sharp and not full round over like the Club Date.

Re: club date se

I would place these drums in the upper intermediate/pro region.
The original Club Date kits were also a less expensive alternative to the top of the line kits. They were designed for an advanced...

Re: club date se

The used ones don't last long on eBay.
They do pop up from time to time though.

Re: club date se

I have the 5.5 depth Club Date SE snare. It sounds just as good as my 65 Slingerland Artist snare that is in the same dimensions. I bought the CD snare used after I bought the kit. I was shocked when...

Re: club date se

I've been playing a CD SE kit with snare for 3 years. I gig with it regularly. It is lightweight and dependable. It is as close as you can come to a vintage Lud kit without buying one. I have tried...

Re: Big Band drum thread.

I know exactly what you mean. I feel that way with the Jazz Quint often. The music takes on an energy all its own even on my much smaller scale.
A drummer isn't allowed to drive a band in Rock...

Re: something about this just doesn't seem right

I find the same type of thing with Sears every now and then when I do a Google shopping search for a music product. I notice that the price in the Sears search results is always much higher than the...

Re: Vintage stuff. Period.

That's it KamaK, "Don't Touch It"
I was attacked by some trolls on YT because I modified my 65 Slingerland kit.
The funny thing is that it is my favorite kit out of all of the kits that I own.
I...

Re: Vintage stuff. Period.

Re: 24" bass drum - 10" main snare, surely not?

it's an acquired taste I guess, just not one that I would acquire. I do use a 10" timbale style snare that is made by Tama. It has just a batter head and cocktail snare wires.
I use it on the side...

Re: Big Band drum thread.

The music was just so well arranged. I can't understand how anyone couldn't appreciate it, yet most people today don't understand it.
There is something for everybody in a big band piece as far as...

Re: That Erskine kit at NAMM

I like yellow but there is something about the color that tells the inner workings of my mind that I would never buy a yellow drum kit or a Yellow car for that matter.
It does look like a nice...

Here is an example that shows how a vintage design can be improved while still retaining the elements of the original design. I bought this redesigned Gretsch strainer system. ...

Re: Vintage stuff. Period.

I agree Bo, the majority of us don't want true vintage. We want hybrid vintage. Whether it is modern vintage, or vintage that is modernized.
I do however understand and respect the purist that walk...

Re: Big Band drum thread.

I love Big Bands and I have always wanted to play in one. The closest that I have been able to come to playing in a Big Band is a Jazz Quintet.
I am happy for you that you get to play in one.

Re: Vintage stuff. Period.

As a vintage enthusiast and owner of several vintage American kits I have this take on the subject.
I had owned what are now called vintage drum kits from Slingerland and Gretsch in the early 70's...

Re: Gretsch Broadkasters Vintage Build; Floor Tom Legs Rattle Against Rezo Hoop

The 302 hoops are great! I removed the original thin stick choppers and I installed 302's on my 50's kit. The original hoops were not workable with modern heads.
They slipped right through the thin...
