some of the baddest sounding drums ever made right here, after playing a kit like this for just 10 minutes you will know why so many drummers chose to play Ludwigs of this era.

Great looking set!

Nit-picking point, but with each drum being bigger than a "Big Beat" set I think these would be considered a "Rock Machine" set.

Is this kit still available? In one of the photos there appears to be something above the badge below the rim on the 13” Tom?
