Hi Peter, 5 pc Ludwig, red sparkle, zildjian hihat, ride and 2 crashes, purchased 10 years ago but like new, 10 hours use.
Special order from NC intended to sound like the late 60's early 70's - we are downsizing

stay tuned!!

Looks like an 18x22, 12,13,16 and a clean LM402, I think they were Legacy. No re-rings. cymbals and hardware. He’s asking for $2500 the drums look new. That’s a bit more than I want to spend since I don’t need the hardware or cymbals.

The tom mount looks like it's for a Ludwig Elite tom holder, so it could be stock. No re-rings mean they're probably Ludwig Classic (6-ply maple/poplar) shells. Large badges mean they're closer to 20 years old as opposed to 10. Classics are great drums for rock (I have a set), but I second the 'yuck' on the 18" deep bass drum. Cymbal ink indicates they are before the 2013 A-series redesign so likely to be on the heavier side, but with cymbals you never know until you play them.

I don’t think they are probably Classics, but rather modern Classic Maples.

Yeah those badges are still available or at least were recently
Correct. I just ordered a CM set last month and was given badge options of Cast Brass Keystone, Large Keystone or Blue/Olive...

It looks like the badges in the OP's pics have serial numbers - Not a Ludwig expert, but I think they stopped that when they to went paper tags inside the shell? Not sure when that was though...
