About This Listing

Steve’s notes: Just purchased at the Nashville “Music City Drum Show”. This is a very rare drum set. Ludwig only offered Yellow Cortex in 1979. As a result, not many sets exist. This set is 8x12, 9x13, 16x16, 14x22. 6 ply maple shells. The solid black bass hoops (no inlay) are correct. What is even more special is that this set also includes the matching canister throne, which may be the only one in existence in this finish. And, the canister throne is signed by Wm. F. Ludwig Jr.  This set comes to me from a very good friend and legendary Ludwig collector. Steve
