Vintage 1978 Ludwig Stainless Steel Pro Beat Drum Kit (13/16/24). It's time to move this beast on. A quote from a vintage drum shop: The robust, rounded, WARM boom still flaws us.Drums don't sound how you think. They have every bit of the warm, boomy, Luddy tone that you'd expect from one of. Their classic 3 ply wood shells but with an added attack that cuts when you really thump'em! The prominent fundamental note of each drum actually makes them easy to tune too. Then there's the power. Aspect of these drums isn't immediately noticeable when you hit them.
They don't seem particularly much louder than. Other kits but when in a band scenario, you will notice, as will those pesky string ticklers!The Stainless Steel range was first made in 1977 and only ran for a short number of years partly because of the. Sheer cost of making them - Marine-grade stainless steel was pricey. They also weren't as popular as Bill Ludwig II. Had hoped which is why they're so rare today, especially over this side of the water! 13" x 9" 1978 Ludwig Stainless Steel Rack Tom #1994096. 16" x 16" 1978 Ludwig Stainless Steel Floor Tom #1994135.
24" x 14" 1978 Ludwig Stainless Steel Kick Drum #1994102. Rack Tom - Good condition.
The hardware is all pretty tidy; general gig-wear, dings, scuffs the odd bit of rust and. The shell has a ding or two but looks good overall. All in full working order.Floor Tom - This is a little tidier but pretty much the same as the rack. The floor tom leg boxes have been. Replaced with vintage style modern Luddy boxes (probably to replace nut-tight boxes like on the rack tom).
Kick Drum - Looks good but get close and you can see some battle scars! Two patches of scratches on the top, most. Likely from loose mounted rack toms. Couple of dings in the top too. Even the badge has taken a hit!
The hoops look like they have. Been touched up and look good.Original late'70s Stainless Steel drums, hardware, dampers, hoops, 1/2 spurs, tom holder plate no tom holder.
