OK I'm getting a little excited but you can judge for yourself. Look closely at the pictures, especially the shell closeups. VERY few scratches, just beautiful Vista awesomeness! Have a look at picture #12, a close up of some tom rash on the bass drum.
Other than that, the shells are virtually flawless. I have more pictures, I can send if you're interested. NO cracks, splits, or seam issues.
These drums were most certainly not moved around a lot, and when they were they were lovingly transported in hard shell cases (not included). Here's what's included. 9" deep x 13" diameter tom - all original with blue / olive pointy badge (no serial number), one muffler, 12 Ludwig large classic lugs and 12 original tension rods, one Ludwig tom mount, a pair of 13" Ludwig hoops and two original 13" Ludwig WeatherMaster heads.
All chrome is excellent with very little pitting. Batter head shows significant signs of use. 10" deep x 14" diameter tom- all original with blue / olive pointy badge (no serial number), one muffler, 12 Ludwig large classic lugs and 12 original tension rods, one Ludwig tom mount, a pair of 14" Ludwig hoops and two original 14" Ludwig WeatherMaster heads. 16" tall x 18" diameter floor tom- MOSTLY original with blue / olive pointy badge (no serial number), one muffler, 16 Ludwig large classic lugs, 8 original tension rods and 8 non-original tension rods, three original Ludwig leg mounts with original Ludwig short legs, one original 18" Ludwig hoop and one brand-new non-original 18" hoop, one original 18" Ludwig WeatherMaster batter head and one non-original 18" reso head. 14" deep x 24" diameter bass drum MOSTLY original with blue / olive pointy badge (no serial number), 20 original Ludwig large classic lugs, 20 original T-rods / claws, original 5/16 spurs and mounts, original tom post mount.Both 24 Ludwig hoops are non-original, but are period-correct. They show signs of use and could use some paint touch up. One original 24" Ludwig WeatherMaster head and one non-original Remo 24" Pinstripe head. One original Ludwig double tom mount including memory lock. Please look carefully and zoom in on the pictures, as they are part of the description. Like I said, I have more pics if you want. And trust me, that one negative review was absolutely uncalled for. I could provide all the gory details if you're interested. Otherwise my record is perfect.
The drums will be packed very carefully into two boxes, with two nested drums in each box. Some reassembly will be required.
