1968 Ludwig Downbeat Outfit

Original Oyster Black Pearl Wrap

14x20 Bass Drum - Serial # 636228

14x14 Floor Tom - Serial # 637896

8x12 Tom Tom - Serial # 636454

3 ply Mahogany/Poplar/Maple Shells with Maple Reinforcement Rings

Clear maple interiors

Edges are all in decent shape for age/condition

Overall the set would be considered more of a 'players' condition.

Wrap has been buffed and the interiors of the shells have been treated with linseed oil.

The set has a bit of a smokey smell to it - We polished the shells in and out but it still remains and is worth noting.
