Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl Downbeat RINGO KIT 12/JF/14/16/20 SHOWROOM CONDITION

LUDWIG/WFL 1121 HI HAT STAND. LUDWIG/WFL 201 BASS DRUM PEDAL. (2) LUDWIG 1400 CYMBAL STANDS. Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl Downbeat - YouTube.

The drums comprise Ringo's 1963-64 1st + 2nd + 3rd Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl kit he owned MINUS the 13" rack tom + the 22" bass for his Super Classic kit. All pieces predate the hyper-production years of Ludwig prior to the advent of Ringo/The Beatles. Within a relatively short period of time Ludwig amped up production to meet increasing demand. As Ludwig collectors know, once this happened Ludwig's attention to detail flew out the window. There is a premium on these early year Ludwigs, not only for the obvious connection to Ringo, but because Ludwig's quality control measures where still stringent.

The wrap has EXTREMELY LIGHT to NO fade/darkening. ALL PIECES ARE IN COLLECTOR CONDITION. Bearing edges are clean & the drums are in the round. THE WRAP FOLLOWS ALL SEAMS INTO THE SCARF JOINTS. There is a date stamp inside the 12 TOM of OCT 12 1964 ; another in the bass drum in red but is illegible from smudging.

The 14x14 tom has a AUG 26 1963 date stamp. The hardware has been cleaned & polished with Simichrome polish.

Hardware is in VERY GOOD + TO EXCELLENT condition. The wrap has been polished with NOVUS 1 & 2 and it is extremely smooth with a few light scratches that could not be completely buffed out.

PLEASE REVIEW DESCRIPTIONS FOR EACH DRUM BELOW. 8x12 RACK TOM # 237543 OCT 12 1964.

Original COB hoops in fantastic condition. Wrap excellent, but small nicks/scratches could not be completely buffed out.

1 "thumbnail" ding above tom mount. New Evans J1 ETCHED resonant head. Batter head vintage Remo Weatherking in excellent condition. 5 (5 1/4)x14 JAZZ FESTIVAL SNARE DRUM # 105288. Original COB hoops in excellent condition. Hardware with light micro-pitting of a few lugs. Wrap excellent with few nicks remaining. Note that the JF does not have the points for Ringos exact snare : those are few and far between + have the throw-off / badge / muffler next to one another in 3 panels and are all PRE-SERIAL. Period correct Ludwig heads and snare wires in excellent condition.

14X14 FLOOR TOM PRE-Serial NICKEL AUG 26 1963. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE 1963 OBP FLOOR TOM WITH ALL THE CORRECT POINTS FOR RINGO'S #1 KIT MINUS THE HARDWARE BEING NICKEL NOTE THE PRE-SERIAL BADGE IS CENTERED RATHER THAN BEING DRILLED IN THE UPPER 3rd OF THE TOM. TOM HAS BEEN FULLY DETAILED AND IS IN STELLAR COLLECTOR CONDITION.

SOUNDING FANTASTIC ON TOP OF THAT IS SIMPLY ICING ON THE CAKE. THE DATE STAMP IS SMUDGED BUT COMPLETELY LEGIBLE AT AUG 26 1963. NO DOUBT SOMEONE WILL CONTACT ME CLAIMING THAT THE " 3 " IN "196 3 " IS A " 2 " BUT IF YOU COMPARE THE " 2 " IN " 26 " TO THE " 3 " IT IS OBVIOUS THE " 3 " MAKES IT 1963 SINCE THE BOTTOM OF THE " 2 " IS FLAT AND THAT OF THE " 3 " IS ROUNDED.

Original NOB hoops in VERY GOOD condition. Hardware in VERY GOOD condition with some "foggy" tarnish and light pitting and wear consistent with a drum being played, and for being over 56 years old.

Wrap excellent with few light nicks & scratches remaining with NEAR-ZERO to ZERO FADING. Bearing edges are clean & the drum is in the round. THE WRAP FOLLOWS THE SEAM INTO THE SCARF JOINT. Original floor tom legs are CHROME. Nickel hardware (NOB) has been cleaned & polished with Cape Cod Clothes. Hardware is in VERY GOOD condition.

Tension rods have wear (I do not detail rods). The bottom hoop has more wear including some heavier tarnish. The wrap has been polished with NOVUS 1 & 2 and it is extremely smooth.

A few light scratches and nicks remain that couldn't be buffed out. NOTE THAT THE OBP PATTERN IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT THAN THE REST OF THE KIT - BUT MARRIES WELL WITH THE WHOLE KIT. 16x16 Floor Tom Badge #116948 1964. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE 1964 OBP FLOOR TOM WITH ALL THE CORRECT POINTS FOR RINGO'S #3 KIT NOTE THAT THE BADGE IS CENTERED RATHER THAN BEING DRILLED IN THE UPPER 3rd OF THE TOM.

Original Ludwig hoops : bottom is COS (steel), top is COB (brass) both showing modest signs of wear. Both having been cleaned & polished with SIMICHROME along with hardware all in VERY GOOD to VERY GOOD+ condition with some light pitting, etc. Wrap is in excellent condition with very light darkening and with a few light nicks & scratches remaining after being polished with NOVUS 1 & 2. The wrap is extremely smooth. 14X20 BASS DRUM # 12475.

Very light darkening to wrap. 1 heavier scratch by badge.

Heavier ding by cymbal mount. Very feint red DATE STAMP that's illegible. Claws EXCELLENT; some T-rods have weird pitting as if chroming process was off. I have NOT touched up the hoops as they're not bad.

If requested, I will touch them up. L cymbal arm is in great condition but the top mechanism is wobbly. Original Ludwig head in excellent condition. Some tape residue on batter head.

STANDS/HARDWARE are in very good to excellent condition. I believe all are the 1st iteration of Ringo's hardware (HH stand, BD pedal + 1 of the cymbal stands [the other is mid-60's]). THE 2 PRE-SERIAL FLOOR TOMS ESPECIALLY THE 14X14 ARE EXTREMELY RARE. ANY 1963-64 OBP DRUM OF ANY KIND , FORGET CONDITION, ARE QUITE SCARCE...

OR YOU'D BE SEEING THEM LISTED ALL THE TIME {and they haven't been showing up that much the last couple of years}. REVERB HAS A VERY STRICT PRICING POLICY. IF THE PRICE EXCEEDS A CERTAIN AMOUNT ON REVERB, REVERB WILL REMOVE THAT LISTING.

THIS KIT IS ON REVERB AS WELL AND WOULD ALREADY HAVE BEEN REMOVED IF REVERB DEEMED THE PRICING EXCESSIVE. Picture a fair percentage of my listings as boutique. In other words : they are not for the average cat.

There is no comment box where you can read any of the experiences buyers have had with me on REVERB you can leave lengthy feedback... And some have, lengthily + glowingly. LUDWIG Script SNARE CASE 1963 Near Mint / Mint #. I would strongly recomend purchasing from Chris!
