This is a 1966 Ludwig 3- piece Super Classic Drum Set, serial numbers 345125, 347132 & 347549. Drums are 9″x13″, 16″x16″ and 14″x22″. All drums are in excellent original condition with baseball bat mufflers, folding kick spurs and rail mount. Also included are the 3 floor tom legs. Wrap is silver sparkle, which has faded/ yellowed- the floor tom is slightly more yellowed than the other drums, but is otherwise all is shiny and intact. Rack tom has 1 slight lifting at top of seam; its bearing edges and the kick drum bearing edges were recut by noted NYC drum tech Nodar Rode. Pic shows a slight crack on interior surface of kick drum at one of the lug screw holes; this crack is just in the outermost ply and NOT through the ply- it may have been there since new. This drum as well as the others are otherwise sound- no cracks through the drum. Shells are vintage mahogany/poplar/mahogany with original factory white paint. Great vintage tone- nice ring and boom. Kick hoops may be non-original but are period correct w/ inlay replaced and tight (this may have been done before I owned the set). All other rims are original. Kick has nice Ludwig front head w/ sound hole, Evans E1 batter side. Evans coated batter heads on toms, new Ludwig clear head on rack btm, old original Ludwig coated on floor btm. I have owned this kit for over 25 years and it’s mostly been set up for occasional play in a non-smoking home environment but rarely gigged. I’ve taken excellent care of it during this time, and it is clean, shiny and ready for play- needs nothing but another good home. More pics available upon request.
