Hello everyone! I would like to know your opinion about this drum set (there is no floor tom). According to the description it’s a Ludwig Standard 1969.

The price is 250$

Is it worth buying?

Thanks in advance :)

3-ply drum shells just like the more well known and popular Ludwig Classic drums, but with different finishes and lug casings. They will sound great.

And you just might find the matching FT out there. Maybe even a matching snare.

Definitely worth buying. Shells are the same as the higher end Ludwigs of the time just with different wraps and hardware. Rare find at that price. The orphan floor toms in that wrap are out there with a little searching.

If you want drums to play and dont care if a floor tom matches, that seems like a great deal. If you know you’ll eventually have to have a matching floor it will likely be frustrating and the price of a matching floor in a rare finish might offset the good deal on the bass and tom

This is true, although I would love to see a Ludwig Standard set with a mix of the different strata finishes, I think that would look cool. My next door neighbor has a blue strata set he's had for a long time but unfortunately it's in a sad state of disrepair (and he's never been interested in selling it even though I've shown interest).

I personally love late 1960s and early 1970s Ludwig drums with the maple/poplar/maple 3 ply with maple reinforcement rings. They create the sound I love.

IF you find a floor tom, which may never happen, plan on spending a ton to get it.
I learned long ago not to buy incomplete sets.
