Wrap is brilliant and tight. Chrome gleams. Shells are in-round, have nice factory bearing edges, have extremely clean milk chocolate interiors and that wonderful 3-ply tone. Black and brass Niles badges throughout. COS hoops on the 12, COB hoops on the 16. The 8 lug COB snare is in a 9 out of 10 condition. Just a spectacular set overall! Post-factory modifications include a cymbal arm / aux mount on the top of the bass drum, as well as the wing screws on the bass drum leg mounts were converted to hex bolts. Minor paint flaking on the bass drum hoops and one drilled hole with bolt where pedal mounts (used to keep pedal in place). One bongo hoop looks to have been welded where it had cracked at one point, but was fixed well. Serials are 216751 bass, 218659 floor, 239269 mounted and 198691 snare. This sale is for the four drums only plus bongos with stand.

  • 1970s Ludwig Blue Sparkle Classic 22/16/13 Set

     

    For sale is a Vintage 1970s Ludwig Blue Sparkle Classic 22/16/13 Set. Great players condition. All shells in-round and feature original bearing edges in great shape. 13 and 16 interiors are clear maple. 22 interior is grantione. Wrap is brilliant, clean and tight with minor scuffs here and there. Some rash on either side of bass drum top – as shown in top of wrap detail photo. There are two unoriginal holes in the 13 from a post-factory mount that have been professionally filled and barely noticeable as well as minor indentions from said mount – as shown in bottom of wrap detail photo. All seams are decent. Chrome is pretty clean with minor oxidation. Could use a deeper detailing and polishing in areas. Snare stand shown for 13 is included. I will also include a proper double post mount, but the arm mount bracket on the 13 is positioned for a right sided bass drum mounting. Could use new heads on entire kit. Both batter tom heads look to be originals. All drums feature the Blue/Olive pointy badges with minor scuffs and serials are as follows: 22 bass #1116454, 16 floor #1116269 and 13 tom #1116453.

  • Vintage 1970s Pearl COB Snare

     

    For sale is a Vintage 1970s Pearl Chrome Over Brass Snare that was found new old stock, still in a clear plastic bag. Superb, all-original, like-new condition. I believe this is the same type of snare that Stewart Copeland favored in The Police. It was only wiped down gently after getting it in.

    SOLD
