4 Piece 1961-1963 Ludwig Drum Set Pre-Serial Keystone Badge 20/13/16 w/ Snare!
Up for auction is my close to 50 year old 4 piece Ludwig pre-serial number Keystone badge drum set in black diamond pearl wrap finish. These drums look and sound amazing! The sizes are 14X20 bass drum, 9X13 tom, 16X16 floor tom, and matching 5X14 snare. I've got Evans head on all the drums. They are all in good condition. I am including everything in the pictures except for the cymbals and thrown. All early 60's Ludwig stands, the Ludwig Speed King pedal, and the factory bass drum mounted Ludwig cymbal stand (not pictured). I purchased these drums on Ebay in early 2004. I've kept them in my house in Nomad cases (which I am including) ever since. They have only been played a handful of times and have never ever been out of the house. I believe that everything on this set is original. The black diamond pearl wrap is in near perfect condition on all the drums with no significant scratches or separations. The hardware is in excellent shape all around, for its age, with the typical minor pitting and a bit of rust on the tom rail consolette. But, otherwise, all the hardware buffs up and shines really nice. The baring edges of the drums are in near perfect condition. There are NO extra holes drilled into any of these drums. The snare and two toms have white painted interiors and the bass drum has a clear finished interior. I have not been able to find any date stamps inside the drums. Overall, taking into consideration its age, I would rate this drum set a 8.5-9 out of 10 a really beautiful and collectable set! I would love to sell these drums to someone who will play and truly appreciate how great they are! I will be shipping these in fitted Nomad cases and then boxed in two seperate boxes. I will consider any reasonable Buy it Now offers. I'm estimating shipping to be around $150.00-175.00 but will only charge actual UPS Ground shipping after the winning bidder gives my his/her address. If you have any questions or would like additional pictures of anything specific please let me know. Thanks for looking.
