WOW! That's a new one. Nothing about them looks Ludwig, not even the badges. However, it's absolutely one of the coolest kits I've seen.

What country are these in?

I agree. The only thing I see Ludwig is maybe the bass drum head. Badges fake but cool set. Looks European.

Better shot of the label on the inside of the one drum might be helpful.

Paul,

I sent a message to Ludwig with some of those pics.
I'll let you know if I hear back from them.

well, not Frigeco, not Apollo, not Bruno.
- shells and lugs are similar to the first 3 images from USSR.
if you wanna look for, write something like this
И.Доценко в составе ВИА Синяя Птица 1984г. Интересно, барабаны самопал

- maybe soviet Epoimi (4th image)
- lugs like DDR Tacton (last image)...

On first 3 pics we can see a hand made shells from stainless steel with lugs and other parts from Tacton. Wellknown soviet and russian drummer Igor Docenko died in 2014 after cancer at 62.

On 4th pic are shells also from stainless steel and a bunch parts from different manufacturers - mounts from Tacton, lugs from Tacton, EPOIMI and RMIF, handmade holder with Amati ratchets and BD hooks also from Amati.

On 5th pic are handmade shells with all Tacton parts exept timbales which has extremely rare aluminium Trowa lugs from beg of 50's.

Cheers,
George.
