1958-59 Ludwig Transition Badge drumset 20-13-16- Classic snare drum, silver sparkle

Exceptionally great condition drum set coming from the classic golden age of Ludwig drums.

Sizes: 
Bass drum: 20" x 14"
Tom: 13" x 9"
Floor Tom: 16" x 16"
Classic snare: 14" x 5,5"

3-ply shells mahogany-poplar-mahogany with reinforcement hoops in maple.

COB rims for all drum. WFL hardware on all drums

All original parts in excellent condition, no issues, no rust (only a bit on the cymbal holder, no pitting. Shiny silver sparkle wrap

The kit is coming from the original owner who bought it at Chicago factory in summer 1960. It has been played for a short time and kept inside the house for 50 years, never toured. 

Joe Morello played exactly the same size and same finish Ludwig kit during the "Take Five" recording sessions in 1959!

We found it with still the original calf skin heads. We stripped it all at Purple Chord, cleaned, polished. We found no issues at all in the structures of the shells. In other words, a piece of history drumset which sounds great!
