I used to have an old Luddy snare.... that I sold to Sam Ash for $100 XD
It was in horrible condition though, but maybe you all can tell me how old it was!





that looks very close to my snare (maybe not as deep?), but it looks in decent condition. If you maybe touched it up a bit you could have gotten way more then 100 dollars, as those are expensive snares.

Damn. Well I kinda knew that, but it woulda cost alot, cuz it was missing snares, one or two of the lugs, needed new heads, and was generally falling apart. Practically beyond repair.

Sucks I don't have it anymore. :( I'd start fixing shit and throwing new heads on, new snares, and make it sound AWESOME. But god damn. WHY??? Alex you are a retard.

6.5 x 14 10-lug Acrolite. Serial # 305763. According to vintagesnaredrums.com that would make it a 1966. Anybody know the story behind these? I'm fairly sure they were never mass produced. I've only ever seen a few 10-lug Acros, and most of them were 5" deep. Some sort of prototype? Somebody hitting the sauce at the Ludwig factory one night?

I'm sure there are from the same era. Possible the same year. Yours even has the matching snare. Cool.

When the Beatles became popular, this kit sold like hotcakes. It was the Pearl Export of the 1960's.

Not really the right wrap for Ringo Style. You have a Black Diamond Peral. I believe Ringo used Black Oyster...

I have almost the same kit. 1965 Black Diamond Peral, 2 floor toms, single rack tom same wrap on snare. 14" High hats, 18" 16" crashes, 22 " heavy ride, 20" ride and 20" China. All A Zildg1an from the 70's. I love this kit. DW FP and high hat. Stands are Yahama.

I have a Sabian AARocktagon 18" from some point in the 60s, 70s, or 80s.....I know nothing about it, it was collecting dust in the school's band room and I asked if I could have it and walked away with a free cymbal. No cracks, but there's an inscription on the inside of the bell that reads JDM 10-20-1989. It's discolored, but I don't have cymbal polish x_x.




I have a 4-piece Rogers set that's in terrible shape, lugs missing; the snare has nothing but the shell itself and the hoops. The bass drum is missing the tom holder, and the floor tom's legs are so loose =[
I don't have the time or money to fix it or find out more about it, and I doubt it would sell for $100 for the whole thing.[/img]

Never heard of them prior to this.
Crazy looking drums.
How do they sound?
Very hard! The bass drum was great, stupendously loud!! The toms were not at all warm, lots of attack with a very round, 'hollow' sound, very unique and again - loud! They were made in the Uk from 1977 to 1984 and for a few yeras afterwards in Canada by Ayotte (I think). Production in the UK started again last year.

I'm not exactly sure on the year of this kit...but some guys at guitar center said late 40's early 50's.
Post a picture of the Badge on the toms and bass drum, I'll tell you what era they are from...

Here are my Big R series Rogers. Recovered and yes rebadged as well. They used to look like jacks as seen above.
