Asking $1600. Located in Raleigh, NC, but I'm willing to drive up to 500 miles to bring the kit to you

Sizes are 22x14, 12x8, 13x9, 14x14, and 16x16. The 14" floor tom is exceptionally rare, and these are all of the tom sizes offered for this line!

So this is a kick and FOUR toms featuring the famous three-ply mahogany-poplar-mahogany shell with solid maple reinforcement rings,

1.6mm hoops, Granitone interiors, and a stunning finish called Blue Strata. As Ludwig changed their shell to maple-poplar-maple, so did the Standards, so that dates this kit to the late 60s or early 70s.
The toms have Rogers Swiv-O-Matic mounts, and the kick is set up with a Rogers double tom mount. Looks like the drill job for rack tom mounts was done less carefully than you'd hope, but it doesn't affect the sound or function of those toms. The kick has been upgraded with heavier-duty spurs using the same mounts that hold the floor tom legs, leaving two holes where the original spurs went. The original spurs will be included.
There is some fading in the finish overall, with the 16 having actually gone to yellow near the seam, which has a minor split that has been reglued. I always faced this side toward me.

I have removed the mufflers, but they will be included along with the original kick spurs.

These drums produce warm, rich, fat tones that fit into a huge range of styles, and look cool doing it.
