Are you wanting the vintage muffler? If not, Pearl makes one that will work and they are cheap and look similar.

Going from the seam those are absolutely 100%. - Truthfully though the " fakes " are high end and made by a company named RCI. Honestly they are just as great. But these are certainly genuine Ludwig's and not a modern made set.

I say real. The seams will tell you. But the reality is, the reissue or "fake" shells are really expensive. So if someone is gonna fake one, it would be a rare color like green, or any of the patterns.
