Clean set of 1970's, specifically 1976 Blue Olive Ludwig Vistalite drums. 12", 13", 16", 22". Remo CS Black Dot batter heads, vintage Ludwig resonant heads on tom-toms. Acrylic is overall nice and clear in good condition with typical scratches and scuffs. Minor chrome pitting you would expect out of a 40-plus-year-old set. Bearing edge production quality varied greatly during this time period. The edges on this set are more inconsistent than I have seen on other sets. Toms are tunable, but more difficult if you prefer low tension tuning like I do. Kick is easy to tune. Badges are all there, but some have rash and are not perfectly flat. I reinstalled the original tone controls for selling purposes, but I normally have them removed. No dampening installed in kick drum for picture purposes. 12" is cracked but repaired. See pic 5. 22" has small crack between the two drilled holes for one of the lugs (barely visible in center of last pic), is missing the silver cortex on one of the hoops, hoops have typical wear for a set this age, 4 of the t-rod tension rods appear to be non Ludwig. 13" & 16" have no cracks. A couple of the rims and some of the tension rods may not be original. I have over 50 pics to share with serious buyers! 12" 1022xxx, 13" 991xxx, 16" 1017xxx, 22" 1019xxx. May consider selling drums separately. $1,250. See my other listings as I will be listing more drums, cymbals and hardware. Advertised on eBay and locally also. I invite potential buyers to e-mail me with questions. I take pride in being honest. Thank you and good luck!
