Forum The Dan’s House Vintage Drums collection features 10 classic snare drums, 4 rack toms, 5 floor toms, and 6 bass drums. The samples were recorded with top-shelf gear and carefully mixed to give you all the detail and impact we heard live in the studio the day we recorded them. We used vintage Neve preamps and an Apogee PSX analog-to-digital converter in the signal chain, so the GOG files are true-to-life samples of these great-sounding, hard to find drums! Although these drums are collector’s items, they don’t spend their lives on the shelf. They’re actively used at gigs and in the studio. The ’67 Ludwig kit was just used for tracking some of Paul Simon’s stuff in
A History: ’s Word of the Year
Your kits Rarities There are some items which have been in the catalogues over the years which either never surface or very rarely, maybe they were never made unless specially ordered, who knows! The early drums from the 30’s are few and far between and whilst items from the late 40’s and early 50’s do show up one to look out for is the 14×6.
The 60’s stuff is quite common although some finishes are not so, there is also a model 14×6. The 70’s had its fare share of scarce items, wood shell snare drums especially 8 lug models are not very common even more so if in a finish other than White. Both 18 inch Bass drums and 18 inch floor toms very very rarely appear and 14×10 rack toms come into the same category.
The vintage snare drums pictured below represent instruments ready for immediate sale. If you do not see what you are looking for, please contact us as we have additional inventory awaiting restoration.

Ludwig Supraphonic This fine Ludwig Supraphonic snare drum arrived at the shop this week with some more gear.. The most recorded snare drum of all time, this drum has loads of tone; together with the invention of the plastic drum head, this drum was the sound of Rock & Roll.
You can scroll down to the date that interests you. A hundred years before that , the land Hazleton now occupies was part of Pennsylvania’s hinterlands, just across the border from Connecticut. Until , that New England state had claimed territory extending as far south as Milnesville, where planes now fly in and out of Hazleton Municipal Airport.
That year a court decision established the land as Pennsylvania’s territory, leading to the establishment of Luzerne County, which was carved out of sprawling Northampton County a few years later. For the Hazleton area, was pivotal. Sugarloaf Township, named for the famous mound rising from its center, was organized that year. By that time, a few hardy settlers already had been living in nearby St.
Johns and Drums in present day Butler Township.
All of them are Aluminum snare drums. That would seem to indicate that they constructed those snares in batches. Possibly they would do a run of so many of the bead-less shells and then build them all up at the same time. Kevin, I think that the issue of when the date stamp was applied during shell manufacture, at final assembly or some other time would impact your theory. I am still working on that question and wflkurt has some thoughts on the topic as well.
I tend to believe that metal shells would have been produced in batches because of the manufacturing process and procedures of that era would dictate that approach.

The Ludwig Book
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan.
But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in
randy Musician in Springville, Utah. Currently seeking: Accordion, Acoustic Guitar, Background Singer, Bagpipes and more.I am a drummer who started playing in marching band and then stage/jazz band in high school. I performed in college in a backup.
I don’t know much about it other than the fact that it’s definitely vintage, it’s 28×14, and I was wondering if anyone might be able to spot any clues as to what exactly I’ve got here. The previous owner didn’t tell me too much about it, but he said it was from the ‘s. He said it had actually belonged to a few drummers from fairly well known bands, but I can’t recall what they were.
In any case, it’s got the extra long Imperial style lugs, and the tuning rods are those bowtie looking ones. It appears as though it’s been refinished. The badge has somehow gone missing. Judging by the holes it has unfortunately not pictured here , at some point or another it was fitted with the curved disappearing spurs.
Ludwig Accent 5-Piece Drum Set Review

Ludwig Series 5-piece Hardware Pack A brilliant package for the up-and-coming drummer, Ludwig Series Hardware are built tough, light for easy portability and affordably, so anyone can take advantage of dependable hardware with a long life-span.
I believe this kit might have been a WFL Barrett Deems ‘Porto-Pak’ Outfit catalog scan from ’57 , which consisted of a 22×12″ kick, 12×8″ tom and 13×5. Perhaps the original owner requested a 13″ instead of a 12″ tom. The 16″ floor would’ve been added at a later time as it wouldn’t have come with one from the factory. The only kit model that came with a 22×12″ at this time was the Barrett Deems ‘Porto-Pak’, but during the 60’s this more commonly became known as the ‘New Yorker’.
On the whole, the chrome work and wrap is in pretty remarkable condition for it’s age. Only the bass drum hoop claws show the usual ageing, and the bass drum hoops have slight chips of the paint which is to be expected. The bass drum hoop claws are engraved WFL. Only one isn’t, and that one is just a standard 60’s Ludwig claw, this is at the bottom of the drum. The 13″ has chrome over brass hoops and two round felt dampeners. Floor tom serial number:

I Will Write for You How to choose the best drumheads. A list of the finest drumheads ever made and my reasons for judgment Are there really 20 best drumheads aka drum heads? Hopefully this will help you when selecting drumheads at your drum shop. Trust your sales assistant—sales associate—because they see a lot of products come and go.

This listing represents a narrow search for companies that were known to be active in the bugle market in North America after the year Nearly every brass instrument and band instrument manufacturer of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century manufactured or distributed bugles. Technically, any company capable of producing a trumpet, cornet, trombone, or horn would subsequently be able to manufacture the bugle.
It is for this reason there is such an abundant number of band instrument companies included in this listing. It was very common for instrument companies to hire manufacturing firms to produce their wind instruments, particularly percussion manufacturers. For instance, Ludwig contracted various manufacturers to make bugles bearing the Ludwig name.
One may peruse this listing in hopes of seeing familiar brands from years past. Please note that many imported bugles often had no markings whatsoever. The year has been selected arbitrarily as the beginning of the time frame encompassed by this listing. Some manufacturers included in this listing will have instruments cited during the late s.
These are included if there is sufficient reason to believe that the instruments offered in catalogs prior to the turn of the century would most likely have been offered during the early s. Please visit our article on the evolution of the competition bugle for a more detailed narrative regarding the instrument’s use in North America. For all practical purposes, the widespread evolution of the bugle temporarily ceased during the s.
The formation of a nationwide network of American Legion drum and bugle corps following World War I set in motion a new era in bugle innovation and design that continues to this day.
Benefits of 20 inch bass drums
History[ edit ] A Slingerland drum kit. Slingerland had won a correspondence school of music in a card game aboard one of the gaming boats that once cruised Lake Michigan. The company started out importing ukuleles from Germany, but set up its own production because it could not meet demand. Soon, they produced their own banjos and ukuleles and eventually, also guitars including electric guitars from or earlier. The first Slingerland drum kits came out in
Mar 14, · Granted, you may never need one, but if I were shopping drums and saw two equal drums, and one had a 6 or 8 inch lug setup, and the other had a 7 lug setup, I’d stick with a more “standard” rim so that I wouldn’t be losing sleep at night worrying about my oddball rims.
If you have a little one who is emotional and struggles to express his feelings, a drum set can help him express himself constructively. Baby drum sets are a good outlet for stress relief – for your baby. You might be physically cringing at the thought of buying your little one a baby drum set.
