The interior of the 13″ tom and the 16″ tom are factory dated ” APR 17 1970 “, The bass drum is not date stamped. All three drums match perfectly, have identical badges and are constructed from the same shells. Sizes are: 14″ deep x 22″ wide bass drum (serial # 764530), 16″ deep x 16″ wide floor tom (serial # 779669), and a 9″ deep x 13″ wide tom-tom (serial # 779473). All three drums have gorgeous 3-ply wood shells (mahogany/poplar/maple) with solid maple interior reinforcing rings. Each drum has a beautiful natural maple interior. The exteriors are factory wrapped in Ludwig “Blue Oyster Pearl”. The blue oyster pearloid wrap is in really stunning condition and is free from fading. None of the drums have been modified in any way, and all of the original fittings are in place. There is some light surface wear on all three drums but the busy oyster pearl pattern hides it well. The 22″ bass drum has twenty Ludwig die-cast “Classic lugs, 20 Ludwig T-rods & claws, a pair of curved telescoping bass drum spurs and brackets, a Ludwig rail consolette single tom holder and a single cymbal mounting bracket. The original telescoping cymbal arm is included with the bass drum.

The top “batter” hoops on the 16″ and 13″ toms have brand new generic steel hoops. New generic tension rods are used to attach the hoops to each drum. The bottom hoops are original Ludwig models. All of the chrome fittings are brilliantly polished and really look great, but there is some light surface pitting on just about every single part.
