Well, at least there is one out there!Here's a 12 14 20 Standard kit outside of Indy - has wrap issues however.....
Old Ludwig drum kit in good shape. Does has some cracking on bass drum wrap. Even has original heads. Includes only what's pictured. 20" bass 12" Tom 14" Tomindianapolis.craigslist.org
I wouldn’t be against it, but I’m wanting a strata wrap, which are basically impossible to find for a re-wrap. No places carry strata wraps any more, which is a bummer.I traded a Keystone Supra - for a whole Standard kit.....which was really abused and needed a re-wrap. Extra holes total mess. BUT - real deal Standards. I found a 20in WFL shell and will be restoring the whole thing. I would suggest going the same route if you can. Might cost alot less, and surely will be easier to 'find'.
Ludwig's doing some strata type wraps again so some of that may filter out to the aftermarket eventually, otherwise Bumwraps or wallopus might be able to come up with a close replication for you.I wouldn’t be against it, but I’m wanting a strata wrap, which are basically impossible to find for a re-wrap.

Yeah, they definitely look great and are very unique.Ludwig's doing some strata type wraps again so some of that may filter out to the aftermarket eventually, otherwise Bumwraps or wallopus might be able to come up with a close replication for you.
The original strata wraps were very thin and become brittle with age. They were the same sort of thin wrap being used on some import drums of the era and were apparently another cost saving measure to keep production costs down. With the side benefit that they were something unique on Amercan made drums and also looked mighty cool.
I actually like their mod orange - especially the faded one- but I’m not sure how close that is to Ludwig’s mod orange.A couple of these wraps are Strata-like.

I passed up several super deals on Standards back in the day, including a double bass set in avocado strata for $150. At the time ( 1980s) I was under the impression that Standards were MIJ drums that Ludwig had imported and slapped their name on....DOH!When I first got online,I found a 20,12,14 for $100 or $150!...Think they were in Texas...Might have had Snare too,,but..too long ago to remember...
The very early Standards had white paint inside..just like Super Classics!
If you're still looking, there's one for sale on the forum now. https://www.drumforum.org/threads/ludwig-standard-12-14-20-blue-teal-sparkle.165276/I have been looking for some time for a vintage Ludwig Standard drum set in a 20/14/12 set up. In all the time I have been looking, I have never seen one, which got me to thinking. Did Ludwig even make the Standard line in a 20/14/12 set up?
Is this going to be my white whale? Should I just give up?
