Here is an interesting kit. Is this a 1956- 1963 Ludwig OBP "Ringo" set? The rack tom mount, the WFL strainer and placement of the bass drum badge suggest 1956-63? Looks like someone added a Gretsch cymbal holder onto the bass drum


Looks in good shape without seeing the interior of the drums...

What a cool set. I even like the placement of the rail mount. This set is most likely from 1958-early 1960 given the transistion badges. Too bad about the Gretsch mount but it is what it is. I think these could benefit from a good cleaning and they would look awesome. I'm not sure $4500 awesome but then again I could be wrong.
