Oct 30, 2008 - 1918 Ludwig Catalog Snares and Sets
 
I just finished the 1918 Ludwig Catalog snare drum and drum set scans.

This is the first cataloged Outfit that I have pictured. I do not have any catalogs between 1912 and 1918. I'm guessing since the catalog only has one outfit pictured that it could possibly be the first catalog outfit.

So the "Ludwig Complete Jazz-Er-Up Outfit" is the first until I see if there is any catalogs between 1912 and 1918.

I know this is an old thread, but I am trying to date a drum I just bought at the 2017 Chicago Drum show. It is a 2 piece shell, and has Pat Pending on the strainer. The only stamp is Ludwig & Ludwig Chicago on the batter rim. Would the "Pat. Pending" date the drum? It looks like there were badges on the "newer" ones in the '20's. I am thinking 1918. I'll attach some pictures. Thanks in advance. JC

Check out page 10 from the 1919 catalog. I have a 4x15 Concert Dance model from that catalog. Same hoops as yours.

I've got the same drum, same size and lug configuration. A few years back I did some research and also came up with 1918 on mine as well.

I have a 4x14 NOB 6 lug snare with same patent pending P-338 strainer, Ludwig&ludwig oval top hoop. No other markings. Best date I could come back with was 1918. Came with a 24" mahogany(I think) bass drum, with Ludwig and Ludwig paper label inside. Has the light bulb socket, no cord. Double up right cymbal stand. 12" brass spun no marking cymbal , 13" Chinese cymbal. Double 2 tone wood block, ratchet, triangle, striker, Ludwig jr pedal, no beater, cymbal clanger, bass drum clanger cymbal mount. Chinese 8" Tom Tom , bass drum mount bracket, 2 bass drum Spurs. Trap case. 7.5 x16 Lyon and Healy marching snare, case,large ornate drum key, marching straps. 1890-1910 is my best guess. Was my great grandfathers set, my grand father left it to me but he had no clue when it was from.
