There you are! Next question: what were there more of: individual Ludwig drums wrapped in pink oyster (drums, not kits) or inverted Jenny stamps?
I think if I was in the collecting market again, and entertaing an expensive purchase, I'd have gone for Maxwell's current Slingerland Pink Oyster pearl kit. Not as rare as the Ludwig, but rare enough for my imaginary budget.
They printed 100 Jenny's for release. We can estimate that most of those still exist in used to unused form. How many Ludwig POP 14x14 or downbeat snare drums were made? Certainly not nearly the
same number as the Jenny. Now one advantage to the Jenny is world wide notoriety, easily transportable, and easily "understood," and under huge demand. It's why they can sell for $1 MILL. The best Ludwig
POP kit is at least 'reasonable' compared to an Inverted Jenny 24c stamp. Drums have not kept up with the demand and notoriety of collector guitars over the 50 yrs. Lots more people play guitars. Guitar players are out front
of the group, usually featured players/singers. But over time, would not be surprised to see some of the better drums separate themselves further from the pack.....like this POP Ludwig.....and in particular because it's in the same
period as when the Beatles came about (ie relative of Ringo's BOP....and LOTS rarer). Over the long term I'm much rather own this POP than a similar condition '63-'65 BOP
Note: Maxwell's POP Slingerland '62 kit isn't in the 12/14/downbeat sizes like the Ludwig. It has 13/16/cob snare which is not of the same desirability. And the two toms had post-factory vent holes added to them. So not really
