_______________

Kit's in excellent vintage HIGH COLLECTOR collector condition. Bronze Mist Lacquer is one of the RAREST finishes for Ludwig drums. In fact, it took me 5 years to find the bloody matching floor tom ... that is how rare these are.

All nickel hardware is in EXCELLENT condition with very light wear and has been polished with Cape Cod cloths. Two or so hoops on the toms are a tad wonky but the drums sound great and can easily be changed out (but I do not think it necessary). Having seen many vintage kits over the years I can safely say that this kit was not used much at all. This is a very clean kit. The kit is so clean that not only does the exterior appear near new, but the interiors are immaculate! Bearing edges perfect. The interiors have not been repainted ... this is the factory original paint (so perfect that I've been asked if I repainted them). Please note that the Bronze Mist finish has very little checking ... which is extremely common with this finish - so common, in fact, that most BML drums that do show up are checking/flaking like CRAZY. THE 14" FLOOR TOM WAS ADDED TO THE KIT AND HAS MORE WEAR THAN THE OTHER 3 DRUMS WHICH CAME TOGETHER AS A COMBO KIT.

20 x 14" BASS DRUM #290982 - Lacquer is in excellent w/ some very light flaking in a few spots; around cymbal mount. Rail assembly, lugs, bass claws and T-rods are in excellent condition. Both hoops are in EXCELLENT condition with original inlay + HAVE NOT BEEN TOUCHED UP OR REPAINTED ... a testament to the phenomenal condition of the kit! There is a gap in the inlay which if you desire can be closed by pulling the staple out & restapling the inlay back in. I'd personally leave it as is. All hardware in excellent condition.

12 x 8" RACK TOM #293515 - original COS nickel hoops show light wear. Some nicks in lacquer; rubbing by rack mount. Hardware very good to excellent condition.

14 x 14" FLOOR TOM #367141; JUL 13 1966 - more chips and wear to BML finish than other drums. This drum to 5+ years to find! Goes to show you how rare the finish is. Prior owner had duct tape facing down on inside of drum ON THE HEAD. There's a small amount of dried adhesive on the edge. The finish has crazed - unlike the other drums in which the finish is very fine. I'd say the finish is very good for the 14 FT. All hardware is excellent. 2 tension rods were missing so 2 were added that are vintage nickel but have more wear than the rest.

5 x 14" PIONEER SNARE DRUM #292622 - Few chips in lacquer + 1 round maroon spot that looks to me to be original to when the paint job was done as there are other spots with the same maroon color (such as the bass hoop(s)).
