          I take it the Baseball bat is the bearing edge profile, but what is "Muffler Style"? Is that the lug style?

          I think my work is done here.

            Nah, I think there's an internal muffler in there, which has a on/off-lever, that's shaped like a baseball-bat...

              Here's a picture: (...you can see the baseball-bat to the right...)








              You can read about the muffler a bit further down HERE: http://www.vintageludwigdrums.com/60stimeline.html

                Yeah that's the baseball bat muffler from the 60's . Pretty primitive, huh ? Wheels were square too in my day. Don't laugh you youngsters ! You are gonna get there too, someday! And when you do, I am gonna come back to haunt you and play my drums with no baseball mufflers on in the middle of the night while you are sleeping, LOL!

                  I suppose that must be the reason why you've cut a huge, rectangle-shaped hole into the bottom of your car ...so you could drive with 'Flintstone power'...

                      Found these on Reverb.com. You might have and easier time finding matching champagne wraps. Floor tom is a 16" though. Ouch on the price too.

                        Sweet, sweet blue sparkle kit! ...but the price hurts indeed...

                      Yeah guys , thanks ,that blue kit is sweet and it will bring that or close, for that one, just because it is fat, but I don't need it and I have the 16 that came with my kit that is gorgeous. I am after 14 floor or a 13 rack only . I talked to Billy blast about matching the pink champagne with a wrap or finding a wrap and he nicely told me what I knew already! Go back to sleep, you're dreaming! I have a 13 that I bought off the Bay for 150.00 but it has an extra hole in it and the champagne must have been a wrap. For the kind of numbers I am hearing I will putty the hole and live with slightly off colored tom! . It plugs a hole in my rack, so be it
