Vintage 3-ply Ludwig “Super Classic” 13, 16, 22 Configuration 1960s Era Keystone Badge. (Depth x Diameter, Serial Number) 9×13 401764 16×16 82205 14×22 402945. The serial numbers on the 13, and 22 are close enough that they are likely born together from the factory. The 16 is a bit older than the other drums but they all have the same hint of ginger ale. We’re not sure if this was originally a Super Classic (13, 16, 22) configuration as the bracket placement on the 13 would suggest the second drum in a (12, 13, 16, 22) Hollywood configuration… There are holes on the bass drum for a rail consolette as well as the still present center-mounted double tom holder. Oh well, lets be honest, everyone puts their tom in a snare stand now. At least I heard its what the cool kids do. You want to be cool, don’t you? There are extra holes on the bass drum that have been plugged with short carriage bolts and lock nuts. The hoops on the bass drum have been re-lacquered and the inlay has been re-glued (and replaced in parts). The interior paint on the 13 has been touched up in just a couple spots. I’m telling you because there’s no way you would have known otherwise. The interior paint on the 16 has not been touched up (but maybe we should have, it’s a little rough). The badge and the tom mount are about 3/4 off center on the top of the bass drum. There are some slight cosmetic blemishes in the finish of each drum, as you would expect from a 50+ year old set. Please see pictures for details. Ball bat mufflers (white felt) are correct and functional on both toms. The kit has been updated with new tension rods and 2.3mm counter hoops on the toms. In addition, new Evans heads have been installed top and bottom. New batter and logo head on the kick. The bearing edges are good and the drums tune up super well. In my experience most–but not all–Ludwigs from this decade sound good. This kit sounds awesome! Please don’t ask. Midwest Drum & Percussion Wichita, Kansas.
