Ludwig Classic Drum Set, 7-Piece Excellent, Stamped Dec 88
Vintage FM Drums based in Charleston did a beautiful and complete restoration/rewrap on this Ludwig Classic drum set. It is in excellent/near mint condition and an outstanding example of a vintage, 32-year-old Ludwig drum set. This is a high-end, collector quality Ludwig drum set that carries the large keystone Monroe, NC badges. All drums are Ludwig Classic 6-ply which is a Maple/Poplar combination (Maple/Poplar/Maple/Poplar/Poplar/Maple) with the Maple interior lacquered. Arguably, they are some of Ludwig’s finest shells produced from the late’70s through’80s, which produce a warm tone and punchy attack. The sale is for a 7-pc shell pack only in classic sizes as follows (measurements in depth by diameter). Bass Drum – 14″ x 24″ (serial #3192888). Floor tom 1 – 16″ x 18″ (serial #3192243). Floor tom 2 – 16″ x 16″ (serial #3191873). Rack tom 1 – 10″ x 14″ (serial #3197604). Rack tom 2 – 9 x 13 (serial #3191872). Rack tom 3 – 8″ x 12″ (serial #3192241). Rack tom 4 – 7″ x 10″ (serial #3192240). The bass drum is stamped Dec 88. The stamp is visible and legible but faded. It is the only drum in the set with a date stamp. Pics provided upon request. The bass drum is also outfitted with original ½ curved spurs. Each spur still has its original rubber feet and they are in excellent condition. No snare drum is included in the sale. The set has a lot of versatility for use complete as 7 pieces; a Bonham-style one-up/two-down set up; a classic 4-pc (two-up/one-down set up); a stripped down 3-pc. Potentially, a drummer could create two great kits out of this by using a drum riser and the 18 floor tom as a bass drum. There are a lot of options in its set-up flexibility. All drums are outfitted with original Modular hardware in excellent condition. Mounting hardware is included as follows: the bass drum tom mount, the separate tom stand as pictured, and legs for the floor toms. No other hardware, stands, pedals, etc are included. Please note, the independent tom stand has a pre-existing crack in the tripod collar near the wing nut. It is still fully functional. HEADS The 7-pc set is outfitted with brand new Aquarian Response 2 batter heads and Aquarian Classic Clear resonant heads for the rack toms and floor toms. The BD is outfitted with a brand-new Aquarian Super Kick II batter head and a brand-new Ludwig resonant head with the period-correct Ludwig block logo (drum head made by Remo). If stick marks are present on heads, its from tuning only. RESTORATION NOTES Each drum has been professionally rewrapped to the Ludwig factory application of the mid-80s using high-quality Delmar blue sparkle wrap. The 10 and 12 toms came to us without rims for the resonant side of the drums. A 10 5-hole and a 12 6-hole period-correct rim was sourced for each as a replacement and they are in excellent condition. The 10 tom badge has some pre-existing scuffs and the original grommet was dented. This did not affect the shell, just the badge. The other badges are in overall very good to near mint condition. Pics provided upon request, however, there are well over 50 pics available on the Vintage FM Drums project blog (vintagefmdrums. Com) which. Chronicles the restoration in two parts: Part One – viewable in the project blog August archive. Part Two – viewable in the project blog September archive. Local pick-up only in Charleston, SC.
