1971 Ludwig Standard Drum Set In Blue Mist 


Beautiful players kit. Classic Ludwig 3-ply shells. Very nice clean edges, it appears as these were touched up recently. Each of the drums has a clean rounded back cut on the edge as shown in the photos. Heads fit on nicely and the drum tune easily. 
Internal tag inside the floor tom dates this kit to May 14th 1971.

Hardware appears to be all original and is in very good working condition. Chrome on the kit is clean and shows some expected signs of wear from use/age. Scratches, scuffs, and some mild pitting/rust. 

The blue mist wrap has aged nicely. The finish is relatively even around all of the drums. The 13" tom is slightly darker than the 12". 
The wrap on the bass drum has some lift at one of the seams, same for the floor tom. Wrap is held in place nicely by the lugs and would be an easy re-glue. 

Kit is complete and in good working order. 

Please examine all the photos for additional condition information. Feel free to message us if you have any questions not answered in the listing or in the photos.  Sold as-is and will arrive as seen and described.
