1965 Ludwig Galaxy Pearl Club Date Double Bass kit. LOCAL PICK UP ONLY. 2300.00 OPEN TO TRADES -SEE BELOW.
(2) 14x20 bass drums (1964 & 1965) 8x12 CD tom, 14x14 CD FT, 16x16 pre serial FT(1962)
These drums are in excellent player condition as there are cosmetic issues with some of the drums. The issues are on the 2 FT with the 14x14 having extra holes from original spring mounted legs. See pics. The holes are very small & you have to really look to see them. This is the only drum with extra holes.Also this drum has the most fade of all the drums.
The 16x16 FT has cracks in the wrap that have been repaired but no extra holes. This drum has had seam repair as well.
The color on the 16 FT is still strong in some areas.
The 2 bass drums are in great shape with a good amount of color left. The tom is in great shape.
Pictures pretty much tell the story.
Brand new Galaxy hoops ordered from Ludwig on the 65. Original hoops & inlays on 64. Drums are all structurally sound and they sound fantastic. All chrome is really nice with barely any rust or pitting. Regardless of the issues the drums do shine & look fantastic under lights. All drums have been thoroughly cleaned & polished with Novus 1 & 2. Coated Ambassadors are fairly new on all the drums as are the bass drum batter heads. Original Ludwig reso heads on each bass drum.
I am open to trades on the drums on rare finishes ONLY. Not interested in basic drum finishes as I have most of them already.
I'm looking for excellent collector quality drums in rare finishes so if you have some vintage drums you've been thinking of selling perhaps a deal can be made if your in the market for a great players set and are in the general area of SoCal. No rewraps please.
Looking for Capri Pearl, Fiesta Pearl, Peacock Sparkle, Green Sparkle, Purple Sparkle, and of course Oyster Pink Pearl
The Galaxy snare is NOT included.
A standard 3 piece Club Date version consisting of one bass drum, tom & FT is also available for 1800.00 (You can pick whatever bass drum/floor tom)
Sorry NO shipping. Local pick up only and I will be at the Hollywood Drums Show on Oct 7th with these if not sold by then.
More pics available by request.
