  • 1960s Ludwig Club Dates Custom Painted

     

    For sale is a set of Vintage 1960s Ludwig Club Dates that have been custom painted. 12, 14, 22 and 14 Pioneer snare. Finish was terrible upon arrival so decided for a quick spray can of midnight blue with clear flaked top coat to clean them up. Mounted tom finish a little rougher than the rest, due to a mahogany outer ply whereas the other shells have maple outer plies. Bass drum hoops finished in same color and new silver sparkle inlays added. Shells are in-round with original bearing edges and freshly painted interiors. Nickel hardware in decent shape. Keystone badges. Needs new heads. Overall a nice, clean, vintage players kit for the money!
