Ludwig Rocker Drum Set with Black/White Badges 1980s

Ludwig Rocker Drum Set with Black/White Badges 1980s


Introduced in the early 1980s as the "S/L" series, the Rocker was Ludwig's fourth major foray into the budget drum world (after the Club Date, Standard, and Combo lines). Sporting a thin 4-ply maple/poplar shell, Rockers were available in a variety of configurations ranging from small 5 piece kits with traditionally-sized toms, to massive double bass behemoths sporting a wall of extra deep "power" toms. Ludwig's new "Modular" tom mount was offered as an upgrade, while Classic mounts were standard. Interestingly, the line is split into "Rocker" and "Rocker II" designations, the latter of which features a smaller range of finishes, lighter-weight bass drum spurs, no Modular mount option, and a greyish-brown spackle paint dubbed "Lud-Cote" on the shell interiors. However, the shells used on both variants of Rocker are exactly the same.
