From the early 70’s this is a vintage Ludwig Standard S-330 drum kit wrapped in it’s original Avocado Strata finish. Ludwig Standards were known for their beautiful finishes and Avocado is one of the rarer ones, and one of those most sought after. The color is very good with little fade, and all 4 drums match and are in nice clean condition. Sizes are 14×22 (serial #15390), 16×16, (serial # 15380), 9×13 (serial # 15120) and 8×12 (serial # 13700). Interiors are 3 ply (maple, poplar maple) same shells as the Ludwig Classics, and have the Ludwig Granitone finish. Serial numbers are close together indicating this set was probably a factory order and not pieced together at a later date. Typical small scratches and scuffs here and there but nothing serious. Some very light spider cracks on the bass, floor and 13, but they are hard to see unless you are very close up and are too difficult to picture due to the nature of the wrap. Bass drum hoops are replacements and the previous owner removed the dampers. Chrome is clean and bright with some typical minor play wear and scuffs. Shells are in – round and the bearing edges are original and in excellent condition. Heads are very good to new. New Ludwig ported display head on the resonant side of the bass, a new Remo Emperor coated on the batter and almost new Evans on the tom batters. Please look carefully at the pictures since they are an integral part of the description. If you have any questions, let me know.
