Ludwig Phaser 9 kit minus the snare. This is a factory matched kit. Let's start off with the best part there are no power toms and no plumbing pipes for mounting the drums, classic mounts throughout.
Sizes 6 1/2x10, 8x12, 9x13, 10x14, 12x15, 14x16, 16x18 & 14x24. These are mid 80's drums from Chicago. I would imagine that Ludwig was throwing together whatever they had at the time, and that would be the reason that the 10 inch tom is only 6 1/2 deep. That size would have been a concert tom. The reason the drums are not put together is for shipping purposes. Every piece is accounted for, lugs, washers, lug screws etc, etc. each drum will be individually wrapped and telescoped into each other for shipping in 2 different boxes. 3 boxes total. Drums will be packed well. All of the chrome pieces for the toms are in great shape, as in 9-10. The bass drum spurs are 9-10, the bass drum lugs on the other hand are bumpy all over. Weird! Bass drum hoops are nice. Silver sparkle inlays are good to go. This is not black cortex, it is a much thinner wrap, it is very shiny, it does have some scratches and a few small dings, nothing thru the wrap. I can tell you from experience that this wrap will pull right off with little to no heat and what is underneath is a finish grade maple ply. That is an option if you don't like the wrap. In the photos the tension rods, claws and T-rods have not been cleaned, needed a break, I have about 20 hours in these so far, but they will be cleaned. All of the shells were waxed. Included is 2 double tom stands and the bass drum mounted tom post and 2 straight cymbal stands. You have unlimited set ups with this kit, from 14 18 24, 10 12 14 16 24 and so on. Heads are included but they will need replaced, no 18 inch heads, factory bass drum heads. $1,200.00 shipped, anything over 300 on the shipping gets charged to you.

Wow that is one sick kit and great price too. I don't think you mentioned it (sorry if I missed this), but are the shells all maple and how many plies?

Way cool kit of at least fair to good historical interest. Hey, not an Octa,not a Quadra, why not a Sexta Plus?

Find a matching, smaller BD and be ready for anything

6 ply, a mix of maple & poplar

...and will eat any thin all maple shell's lunch!   Seriously question why Ludwig ever quit offering these shells, but I'm a bit biased i suppose.  Good luck with the sell....lot's of great drums for a great price.

MUSIC MANOR!  Holy crap.  That's where I took my first drum lessons, for years.  Bought a LOT of stuff there over the years too.

Thanks for the memories.  :)

Man, I would love that kit.  I lusted after Ludwigs back in that era.  However, I think my church would explode if I had that many drums set up on a Sunday.  :)

It would explode for the love of god! You still live in the c-town area? I'm up there all the time, the company I work for does the refrigeration and HVAC for all of the Marc's grocery stores in north east Ohio.

Beautiful kit. I had this exact same setup in black Vistalite in '79. Really takes me back.
