  1. Re: Looking at new hoops and lugs for my Black Beauty

    Any brand of hoops will fit, as long as the lug count is the same. As far as the actual lugs, I have no idea what the bolt center are. I know the Ludwig “classic” lugs (And every other Ludwig lug...

    Re: One up, two down setup figured out!

    My Ludwigs are 1up-2dwn, but I rarely use the 2nd FT. It requires too much floor space for most of the venues we play. I probably only bring it to 2 or 3 gigs per year.

    Sticky: Re: DW Drums Discussion

    As awesome as DW’s are, Classic Maples in VMP are iconic. Pairing them with 2002’s is a perfect combination. Going back to the roots and simplifying your setup sounds like a great idea to me.

    Sorry for your accident, but it’s awesome that you’re recovering!

    Good thing you’re a drummer. A fall like that would have killed a Lead guitar player.

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    They definitely have a purple color when looking at them up close. From 3-4 feet away, they just look black. The finish quality is fantastic. I’ve yet to find another set of drums that are built as...

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    Those old Premiers are some of the best made drums in terms of material and craftsmanship. I have a set of XPK’s that I restored a few years ago. I don’t know what the finish is for sure....but I...

    Re: Premier Resonator- wood or metal hoops?

    I’m 99% sure they would have been wood originally.
    Wood hoops will definitely make a difference in sound..at least Acoustically from behind the kit or up close. If you’re playing live in a band,...

    Not much really. It helps seal the wood to protect it from moisture. Since we play outdoor gigs, it’s an added precaution. I’ve had my drums rained on before. Plus, when we play outside gigs in high...

    Yep...satin olive. For some bizarre reason, that color really turns my crank, LOL.

    Re: Concert toms

    They were all over eBay about 5 years ago. They weren’t that desirable, and I bought quite a few late 60s 3ply Ludwig concert toms for very little money. Guess I’m glad I did!
