Ludwig Vintage 1966 Mother Of Pearl 3 Piece Shell Pack!”-$1469.99

Here is a beautiful set of white mother of Pearl 1966 Ludwig classic keystone badge drums. All the drums have the white interior with rerings and the 3 ply shells. All the drums are in very good condition for a 52 year old used set. The sizes are 13”, 16” and 22”. The lugs and rims are nice and shiny. The wrap has dulled over the years and not like shiny new. The 13” hi tom has badge number 32575. I put new Evans Calftone heads on batter and reso. It has the baseball batter mute on it but it is loose. The drum sounds really great. The 16” floor Tom has badge number 34091 on it. It also has the baseball batter mute on it which works great. I also installed Evans Calftone heads on the batter and resonant sides. It has the 3 original legs and I have ordered the three black tips for them. This drum also sounds great. The bass drum has dual rails. Looks like one was added later. They are both original Ludwig. The bass drum also has a new Gibraltar cymbal arm holder that replaced the original Ludwig one that was stripped out. I also installed new Evans Calftone heads on the batter and resonant side. I have ordered the black rubber ends for the claws as well. This drum sounds absolutely fantastic.

Brought to you by Wild Bills Drum Shop of Texas. Please look at the pics and ask questions, I want you to be happy with your purchase. These drums are keepers for sure. Might decide to keep them myself.

Crush Chameleon Ash 4 piece drum kit Trans Satin Black-$869

24 x 18 KICK DRUM, 12 X 8 TOM, 16 X 14 FLOOR TOM, 14 X 6 SNARE DRUM, FLOOR TOM LEGS, TOM ARM/CLAMP.

• 6 Ply EUROPEAN Ash • Trans Satin Lacquer Finish in Black • Double 45 Degree Bearing Edges • Reverse Flange 2.3mm Snare Drum Hoops • Black Powder Coated Hardware and Hoops • Triple Flange Tom Hoops • Ash Bass Drum Hoops • Gull Wing Bass Drum Spurs • Interchangeable Chameleon Lug Inserts • Tom Brackets Feature Mating Memory Locks.

Metal shell hardware has been powder coated in black to accent the striking trans satin finishes. The Chameleon Ash has been upgraded with the Crush X-Suspension Mount. The Chameleon lug was created as a three part system: The lug housing, the metal insert, and the color insert. The strength and integrity of this lug is handled by the way the lug housing and insert fit together. The color insert is an ABS material and serves only for aesthetic purposes. All of these components together make a rock solid lug that is simple to customize without having to remove it from the shell.

The Chameleon Ash Series offers an undeniably unique and appealing tone, with strong attack and warmth, unlike any other drum set.

 The Celestial kit features Sakae's new Chamber Specific Technology (CST). CST is another innovation in the 88-year history of Sakae and is a result of decades of collaborations with some of world's top drumming artists. Eizo Nakata, Sakae's 3rd generation President states, "Sakae believes that in the search for the ultimate resonance and tone, individual drums within a drum kit should not be limited to a certain ply configuration, bearing edge or even shell composition." North American Maple and exotic African Bubinga wood are used for this hybrid drum. 2-plies of African Bubinga wood, known for its great resonance and projection, are used on the outside of the shell. By having the hardwood at the bearing edge, where the head contacts the drum, the most profound properties of the Bubinga wood are expressed. Keeping this consistent tone and level of resonance from the hardwood allows Sakae to adjust the low-end, sustain and projection for the each of the various drum sizes. This is the secret of Chamber Specific Technology. Building on that philosophy, this ground-breaking instrument focuses on each drum and the specific treatment needed to produce the most desired sound for that size shell. With the CST process, Sakae has successfully "Pre-Eq'd" each drum so that each speaks with its ultimate musical tone. Shell Thickness: In the art of shell making, the thickness of a shell greatly affects the sound. On smaller diameter drums, thinner shells enhance projection, resonance and tone. For larger diameter drums, the opposite holds true - a thicker shell adds a desired bottom end with a larger "sweet spot" playing area. Within the Celestial series, small drums feature thinner shells. The shell thickness gradually increases as shell diameter increases.

For larger diameter drums, the opposite holds true - a thicker shell adds a desired bottom end with a larger "sweet spot" playing area. Within the Celestial series, small drums feature thinner shells. The shell thickness gradually increasesShell Plies: An important factor in creating a musical shell is knowing how various woods work together to create a preferred sound. Harder woods add resonance and projection to the shell while also bringing more "high-mid" frequencies. This helps smaller drums cut-through the music and gives lower drums thunderous power. The Celestial kit features a Hybrid shell consisting of North American Maple and exotic African Bubinga. Shell Bearing Edges: The combination of sharper edges for smaller drums and rounder edges for larger drums is an important part of CST technology. A sharper edge allows for more of the harder Bubinga wood to make contact with the head. As the drum's diameter increases, the rounding of the bearing edges help to control excessive overtones and sustain. Shell Wood Type: The Celestial series uses 2 plies of African Bubinga on the outside of the shell combined with North American Maple on the inside. By having the harder Bubinga wood at the bearing edge, where the head contacts the drum, you get the most profound properties.This helps smaller drums cut-through the music and gives lower drums thunderous power.
