Vintage 1966 Ludwig Club Date 4 Piece Drum Shell Pack – 12/14/20/Sn – Refinished (205-1)


Out of stock


Vintage 1966 Ludwig Club Date 4 piece shell pack. The sizes are 8×12, 14×14, 14×20, and matching Pioneer 5×14 snare drum. It’s a two-owner kit that originally came into Brockstein’s drum shop in Houston, TX. According to the last owner (who had owned them since 1969) the kit was originally black lacquer but was refinished in a walnut stain and lacquer at some point. The bearing edges were leveled and the outside roundover edge re-cut. All of the hardware is original (hoops, tension rods, brackets, etc.). Everything is very clean. There’s no rust, but the chrome hardware does have scattered pitting and wear. Multiple bass drum tension rods are slightly bent. The lacquer finish has dings, dents, and some scratches. There are also a few places on the 14″ floor tom where the lacquer is flaking off. The heads are in good shape. Both toms have brand new clear Ambassador resonant heads. The toms and snare all have working baseball bat mufflers. The Pioneer snare drum is in nice shape. It has newer Ludwig snare wires but two snare strands are missing. The throw off works smoothly. Includes the original bass drum cymbal arms as well.

Overall it’s a clean player’s kit with a nice finish and desirable sizes. Enjoy them as-is or wrap them in a factory color. More pictures and info available.
