Vintage Ludwig Drums - Butcher Block shell bank
This exact kit won first place in the 2016 Vintage & Custom Drum Expo showcase!
Kit is in immaculate condition with no issues. All drums are pointy blue/olive badges with reinforcement rings. No lifting seams or cracked wrap at all. Only unoriginal holes are on the 10 and 12 toms which were originally concert toms.
Drums have been serviced by David Egan from Rhythm Restorations and Steele Turkington from Kentville Drums.
I bought the kit originally as 13, 14, 16, 18, 24. Added the 22, 20 and 10 12 after. I have used this kit as a shell bank. Whatever sound you need - this beast can do it. Drums have seen some serious studio time, most notably on Hillsong Young and Free’s album, III. https://open.spotify.com/album/5Rb8R5i1XkZIFCKUyR2PZD?si=5luqhmRPSGCy6JpTR3lqhw
Drums are as follows:
10x7 tom -Originally a concert tom, added bowtie lugs (large classic lugs wouldn’t fit) and converted it to a double headed drum. Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
12x8 tom - Also originally a concert tom and converted to a double headed drum. Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
13x9 tom - Comes with original tone control and mounting bracket. No issues, just a beautiful warm drum. Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
14x10 tom - beefy and fat. A great drum for the Bonham vibe. Small scuff next to the badge. Original tone control and mounting bracket. Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
16x16 floor tom - has upgraded tom mounts and legs (see pics) a lot sturdier than the originals and the black spacer means the legs don’t hit the rims. Original tone control, Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
18x16 floor tom - an absolute beast for the classic 1 up 2 down vibe. Also has upgraded mounts and legs. Original tone control, Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
20x18 floor tom - yes, you read it correctly. This is a 20x18 floor tom. Super rare drum especially in this condition! This drum shakes you to the core! Includes original tone control, legs and brackets. Mahogany/poplar shell with clear interior.
22x14 kick drum - No question about it, this is the best kick drum I have ever heard. It has a clean tone and punchy attack. Spurs have been upgraded to thicker, stronger parts. Comes with original mounting plate, Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
24x14 kick drum - an absolute classic. This is an exceptional drum. Spurs have been upgraded to thicker, stronger parts. There is a tiny bit of discolouration on the batter hoop but it is fine other than that. Comes with original mounting plate, Maple/poplar with Granitone interior.
Please only contact me if you are seriously interested. Lowball offers will be ignored. Happy to answer questions.
I am not in a hurry to sell this kit and I am not interested in splitting it up. If it does not sell, I will happily keep it.
