I bought a Ludwig kit last Tuesday that is black, the snare is wrapped in black, it is not cortex, it is a large keystone chicago badge drum, so 1984 I presume. Wrap name please?

The other drums are Monroe badges, large keystone. 12,13,14,16,22 and are factory painted black, would this have been called sable? Thanks

Recently I bought a 1987 Super Classic with a black wrap as well. I almost passed on it as I thought it was a rewrap but, the shells were definitely SC and the hardware was really clean and taken care of. Turns out Ludwig did a Black Onyx wrap that was not Cortex in the 1988 catalog, so this appears original. Still can’t find a 1987 catalog, in the 1984 catalog they are calling it Gloss Black which is probably what you have.
