I looked at this set in person. Other than the shell damage inside the bass drum (appears someone dropped it on one of the spurs), which was not disclosed before making a long trip, there were other things that just didn't look right. In any event, I offered him $800, he passed. Good luck to anyone who may be interested.

Kinda cool that this one has a matching snare. When I was a kid I always liked the wood cortex finishes as well. Too bad about the damage.

Okay DFO, I had no idea that during the Keystone era for Ludwig that they offered a few different stains during the late 1960s other then the two I knew about i.e. Natural Maple Thermogloss and Mahogany Thermogloss.... and now Walnut?

I do know in JAN 1970, they offered a Walnut Thermogloss because I have a Jazzette in that finish see below.

And the snare pictured isn't even included. A 5x14 Supra looks a lot better with it IMHO.

I knew someone years ago that had a Hollywood 1969 Ludwig in the mahogany. It was the same exact finish they used on parade drums like the cub scout model. It had keystone badges and all...

Osahead, I can never get tired of seeing those jazzette drums! I absolutely LOVE the maple finish one. That is super cool!
