For sale is a super clean kit of vintage 1965 Ludwig Club Dates in Black Diamond Pearl with nickel hardware and keystone badges. 20/12/14 and 14 Pioneer snare. All nickel over brass hoops. The bass drum T rods and claws appear to be chrome.
All drums are in-round and have nice, clean white interiors. Floor tom shows a bit more normal flaking then the others near the re-rings. I do not see any date stamps. Bearing edges good and original. All wrap is tight with very minor fading. Little bit of seam lift on the floor tom and very little curling on the bass drum hoop inlays. Original snare wires as well as all original heads, which are heavily used. Original resonant head on bass drum looks great.
Hardware included is a red frame Speed Master pedal, WFL flat base snare stand and a Ludwig throne that appears to have been reapholstered on the seat top. Also includes original cymbal arm with 15″ Ludwig Standard Paiste cymbal.
Serial numbers are:
Mounted Tom: 207694
Floor Tom: 272777
Bass Drum: 207145
