Details on overall condition: Acrylic shells have very minor surface scratches here and there. Worst is about a 10″ or so long one on the floor tom that is hidden against the bass drum but is not very deep. No cracks or stress fractures anywhere. Normal light pitting and minor rust visible but otherwise very clean and the chrome gleams. Worst pitting is on the snare shell and some hardware stand legs and feet. All original Ludwig heads are present but in pretty used shape. Heads have the dealer stamp of Faust Music above Ludwig logos. Bass drum beater head has two very small puncture holes at the very bottom which looks like the kick pedal mount caused them some time ago. Front reso bass drum hoop slightly out of round, but very functional. Some wear on bass drum hoops but no splits or cracks. Looks like newer paint on them as well and original inlays with minimal cracking issues at seams with small repairs. Few of the tension rods washers look unoriginal (not brass) but otherwise everything else seems to be completely original. Also, there is a very small about 3mm crack starting at the crash cymbal center, but otherwise all cymbals in great condition.
