  • The most perfect vintage Ludwig kit EVER!


    This set kills me. It's from April, 1964, plus or minus, which is to say immediately after a little band called The Beatles invaded from Britain on February 9. Thanks to Ringo's patronage the orders for Ludwig sets were really rolling in and you see some interesting variations from Ludwig due to the the overworked assembly line and parts supply.

    The color is that perfect combination of Sky Blue Pearl that's faded into a.....well......Sky Green Pearl.....Sea Foam Pearl.....I dunno, but the color in it's present state is one Ludwig should have offered.  And the hardware is all nickel, which has the lustrous silvery-gray color that is lacking in a perfect chrome. Every tension rod, nut, wing nut, wing bolt, bat mufflers, tom mount, and hoops are plated with this beautiful metal, and unlike so many many nickel specimens, this one hasn't been cleaned with coarse steel wool, killing its sheen. And I'm currently looking for a period correct, nickel shell mount cymbal arm to go into the bracket on the bass drum. The early '68 13/16/22" shells are as perfect as the hardware and the bass drum hoops are miraculously clean. And the sound is just unbelievable.  This is the perfect vintage Ludwig kit.

    Come on down and check them out, or if you can't, here it is on the site with two more pics: http://www.maindragmusic.com/drums-percussion/vintage-used/kits/1963-ludwig-super-classic-13-16-22-blue-sky-pearl.html
