Vintage Ludwig 1960s White Marine Pearl Super Classic Drum Kit
This rarity is beautiful and ready to play! It's sounds, well, anyone who has heard one of these things will know, it sounds like a true Ludwig. This kit is very classy. It's got fresh coated Coated Ambassadors over coated Ambassadors on this, super jazzy! A new coated Powerstroke 3 along with the original Ludwig display head on the kick drum - thump'n! The previous owner has had this kit from day one, we assured Jim that'd it would go to a good home and in all honesty, when we set this thing up to take the pictures, it was very close to going home with ADC Adam!
Although this was bought as a complete outfit in the later '60s by it's previous owner, the kick is a quite rare 22" x 12" pre-serial drum! Custom order size, the slightly shallower depth leant more towards jazz but as the boss said when we tuned it up and hit it, "It just sounds like the rest of them!" Still those classic Ludwig 3 ply shells with reinforcement rings. All the drums have aged together regardless of what image three suggests, a trick of the light! One unit! The kick drum is clearly stamped 1961 (see picture six) and the floor tom is stamped 1967 (picture five). Natural mahogany interior kick and egg-shelled rack and floor with the original kick reso and tom reso! A players kit?
