@Fat Drummer is that a grey marble finish on the backline?
Ludwig called it Black Marble but yeah, it always looked gray to me as well. Here is a thread on the kit it's self. It sounded wonderful!

This was my office last Friday night. I almost never play a set with two mounted toms but felt like bringing these out for a spin. These have an interesting back story. I got them from a guy I went to high school with in the 80's. I found out about the set around 1995 and long story short, kept tabs on the set and was able to get them a few years ago. They basically sat in an attic unused for over 25 years, were filthy and needed missing parts. What was cool Friday night is that the guy that sold them to the guy I got them from was at my gig and was able to see the set he had not seen in 30 years.

Neither of the previous owners played all that much and certainly not to the level I have invested myself in. The guy that was there Friday said that he sold the set to the other guy in the late 80's for about $80 and a bag of weed! I'm just glad these beautiful rare drums were saved and are now good for the next 100 years. Ironically out of all the vintage Ludwig sets I have owned, these sound the best. They are the easiest set to tune and the toms really sing. That was an added bonus! It was a blast to play these but I am definitely more comfortable with a one up, one down set.
