Does anyone have any speculation about this mixed Ludwig Gretsch configuration? According to the seller they are from around 1970. Only one badge remains, which says Chicago on it. Apparently, the drums were refinished in 1975, which explains the lack of badges. What’s the value of these? Will they sound good? Comes with some zildjian cymbals which look like they’re from the same era..

I see one Ludwig drum, possibly a converted marching drum, from 1961-1963. The rest of the drums look like imports, certainly not Gretsch. The hardware seems to include a mix of Ludwig and at least one Slingerland stand. If these are really cheap the one drum and hardware might be worth the price but the bulk of the drums might not hold much value...unless they are some sort of European brand I don't recognize.

Amazing what some try sell as name brand drums. They’re either plain ignorant or they’ve cast the line for a big sucker
