Poor thing!! My unmolested 1964 Champagne Sparkle Super Classic just shed a tear! They are much sweeter than my 1st kit, a sparkle blue Stewart, as are most of the other kits I've owned.I'd love to have my first kit back except I know it was butchered by the store I sold it to. It was a 1965 Ludwig Super Classic 13", 16", 22" in Champagne Sparkle. I sold it in the late 70's and the music store immediately removed the rail mount and drilled it for a double tom mount. They ordered a 12" tom to go with the kit. I saw it in the store when they got done and was heartbroken. The 12" tom was a 6 ply shell and the finish wasn't even close to the original. It looked so bad I wished I hadn't ever sold it.
I only miss my first kit for nostalgic reasons. If it came back to me, I wouldn’t want to keep it, but I’d like to play it for maybe a half hour, just to see if my memory of it matches what it is.if you had the opportunity to find and get your very first drum set back, would you?
let’s assume you can still identify it, it is in good working condition and it is playable.
