SKU: 76568041 Categories: , ,


Vintage late 1970s Ludwig clear Vistalite 16×18 floor tom in good condition. Serial number 1964965. It’s complete and all original except for the heads. The hoops match. All tension rods match and have washers. No major cracks in the shell, but there are maybe 2 or 3 small spider cracks around some lug screw holes that we spotted while disassembling the drum. They are covered by the lugs. It just received a survivor’s restoration. Everything was completely disassembled. All parts were soaked in an ultrasonic cleaner and polished by hand. The shell was buffed inside and out. It’s very clean and has no rust, but there is pitting scattered around the chrome hardware. The shell has some scattered scratches as well. The batter head is a brand new Code clear Generator (2-ply). Internal muffler works as it should. Overall it’s a very clean player-grade drum that would make a great addition to an existing kit.

Due to the nature of used and vintage drum gear, all listings are sold “as-is.” We try our best to take detailed pictures and write accurate descriptions. Our goal is to capture the overall condition of each item. Minor details may be missed, but we are happy to take additional pictures upon request. Also, we cannot guarantee finishes will be a close or perfect match to your drum(s). Most Reverb orders ship with Reverb Safe Shipping which is signature required over $100. AP Drum Co website orders ship insured for the full purchase amount (and no sales tax – just sayin’). If you would like to specify “no signature required” please let us know at the time of purchase so we can ship accordingly.
