Ludwig snare drum dating online dating advice tips
I took this photo from Ringo's spot on the stage to give you a different perspective.
Finding a good deal on a vintage drum on EBay seems to be a thing of the past.When I log on to an auction site now, it’s easy to see that the public at large has been educated. FIRST LUDWIG OYSTER BLACK PEARL KIT:5.5"x 14" Jazz Festival snare drum (Pre-serial Keystone badge / Red ink stamp date: APR 18 1963)8"x12" Tom14"x14" Floor Tom14"x20" Bass Drum (clear interior)FIRST LUDWIG KIT HARDWARE: Speed King bass drum pedal (Model 201)Flat base cymbal stand (Model 1400)  An Olympic cymbal stand was also used Flat base snare drum stand (Model 1363)Flat base hi-hat stand (Model 1121)Bass drum anchor (Walberg & Auge Model 1304)Note: Photo evidence indicates that only one Ludwig model 1400 cymbal stand may have been purchased with the first Ludwig kit. Most of us are aware of the Walberg & Auge model 1304 bass drum anchor plainly seen in front of Ringo's kit on the Beatles' Ed Sullivan performance.Next we see the obvious, Ringo's 1963 Jazz Festival with a well used batter head.And finally, you can easily see the Ludwig / Manny's music store stamps on the tom and floor tom.
The condensed version is that Ringo was drawn to the Oyster Black Pearl color and loved the fact that we could get an American made drum set.
