This is a 1970's Ludwig Big Beat "Pattern A" black and clear Vistalite kit and yes it is rare. Being that these drums are forty years old, cosmetically, there is some pitting/rust on the rims and lugs and scuffs on all the drums. Also, (one of the 13" rack toms is RCI not Ludwig), and one of the 13" toms has had a professional repair(visible only on interior). Interesting to note: this kit originally may have been a special order for an endorser as there are no serial numbers on badges someone etched some numbers on the B/O badges.
The RCI tom has a serial number. Update:did some research and came across some info. And some of the early 1970's drums had no serial numbers.Bass drum has Remo PowerStroke3 on both sides, snare has Remo controlled sound black dot with Remo Diplomat snare on bottom. Floor tom has Ambassador black dot on top and bottom, as does the 12 rack tom. The 13 rack toms have Controlled Sound on top and bottom. Here is what the 6 piece drums consist of. (1) 22 bass drum (bass drum legs included). (1) 5.5x14 snare drum (matching snare). (1) 16floor tom(with three legs included). (1) 13 rack tom (RCI, not Ludwig) (minor spiderwebbing). There are 6 soft cases for the drums, which is included. (You can see in the last photo how I had the kit set up). This drum kit has a nice punchy attack (perfect for live settings).
