For 1971 Ludwig 12,13,16,22 matched kit. Mahogany/Poplar/Maple All clear interiors.
*Bearing edges professionally re-cut to original specs by Mark Ross MRP Drums.
*Please note: The 16 bottom inner maple hoop had a small crack from aging which Mark reglued as well. (shown in pic)
-They're a bit worn, yellowed and pitted, missing some washers on bass claws. but overall look nice for a kit almost 50 years old kit.
-The arched spurs holes in bass shell were modified to accept 1/2" spurs. The 3/8 spurs are on it now.
-The wraps are tight at seems and have discernible yellow aging throughout the white pearl areas.
- I'm the 3rd owner, but don't use them anymore.
-Always stayed in cases, climate controlled closet when not in use.
The best part, They sound Fantastic.

*Looking to sell in the NY/NJ/CT/PA areas to avoid shipping if possible.
Asking- 1100. for the 4 pieces.

More pics avail. on request
May sell drums separately if kit doesn't sell as a whole.

Be Safe and Thanks for looking.

Thanks JDA. I appreciate the kind words. Hopefully, I'll find that person. I've had them for about 15 years from when I got back into playing.
It's time to to pass them along.
