[click images for larger view]

- Pink Champagne Wrap
- Mid 60's

The Ludwig Super Classic Kit was the top of the line drum kit offered by Ludwig in the 1960's.

Hundreds of these kits were sold to aspiring drummers. But the classic configuration included a 22 inch bass drum. The 20 bass drum was an option that most purchasers passed on.

This kit, which has been in storage for over 30 years, has the 20 inch bass drum. The Supraphonic 400 snare drum is exceptionally clean and in great shape for its age. All hardware is included in the purchase price.

- 16 x 16 Floor tom

Jazz great, Joe Morello, was often pictured behind a silver sparkle Ludwig kit iwhen he played with Dave Brubeck in the 60's. In fact, I never saw him playing on anything else!!!

Joe was Ludwig's number one endorser, at least on the jazz scene, and he appeared constantly in Ludwig drum ads in music magazines of the time.This kit is from the mide sixties and it has the typical white coated interior shells that were a trademak of the brand

Ludwig Black Oyster Pearl Kit


 -Click for larger images-


- 9 x 13, 16 x 16, and 14 x 22
- Transition badge
- 3 Piece kit

This kit is wrapped in the famous "Ringo" finish, also known as black oyster pearl.

Over the years this wrap has gained popularity among collectors and is highly prized. This particular kit has the transition badge which means it was made in 1959/60.

There is very little wear on the wrap and surprisingly little chaffing on the hoops. This is all the more remarkable considering the kit is over 50 years old.



Ludwig Psychedelic Red Hollywood Drum Kit


 -Click for larger images-


- 22 x 14, 16 x 16, 13 x 9, 12 x 8
- Mid 60's, Keystone Badge, White Iteriors
- Double Tom holder, floor tom legs, and bass drum spurs (non-original) included

This hollywood kit is from the mid 60's and is wrapped in one of the rarest finishes of the time, Red Psychedelic.

The bass drum mounts are original, but the spurs are not. This finish changed slightly over the years.

This is an early example of it. The kit shows some wear, but is in very good condition.
