One of my favorite looks for a kit. Thanks for letting us know.

Quantities are very limited based on what I read on FB. These kits/snares are also limited to a few select shops.

Nice kit! I was browsing Ludwig's website 2 days ago and saw them. On a side note what initially caught my attention was that Ludwig actually did some updating to their website!

Odd time to re-release it (44 years?) but I dig the color scheme.

Looks like 10 shell packs and 10 snares.

These outfits play off the "Spirit of '76" theme by using our renown 70's 3-ply shell. It is a limited release to 6 QTY Fab outfits (14x22 BD, 16x16 FT, and 9x13 TT), 4 QTY Pro Beat outfits (14x24 BD, 16x16 FT, and 9x13 TT), and 10 QTY 6.5x14 matching snare drums.

why lacquer? Cheaper? I like the wrap more but...I'd hit it
I've never seen lacquer be cheaper than a wrap. I'm guessing they did it because a lot of people consider that a higher-end or nicer product vs. a wrap. The site also mentions the metallic sparkle is a first for them, so maybe they're showing off a new toy.
I know they're trying to be true to the old version, but this time they should've gone with white instead of silver.

Maybe so the sections of wrap don't separate? There's separation on my Rogers kit's wrap. Granted, it's 50 years old and they've changed the formula since then so it may not shrink any more. Either way, that's a cool Ludwig set.

Those look really cool. I like that they are doing lacquer for these. I looked on the Drum Center of Portsmouth's website, and they have a kit and snare listed for sale - $1,299.00 for the snare; $4,769 for the 3-pc kit - and very cool that they are in the Legacy Maple line.
