Default 1960/61 SBP Ludwigs

Got them today in a trade for a Leedy & Ludwig kit.The FT is stamped 1960 while the 13 and the BD are jan 1961. Excellent shells good wrap and all. i repainted the BD rims, cleaned the shells a little and that's it. i threw an old L & L snare that i got from forum member Human 71 behind the kit for good measure... Yeah.!!

I have the identical kit, same year, same finish, same sizes. Wonderful sounding and easy playing set of drums. Great score. Enjoy them. Ludwig drums at their very best.

The floortom is from 1960 so it has a trans badge...Is that good or should i worry? The other 2 being from Jan 61, have the regular no serial keystone badge.

Very nice brother ! Saw that kit and immediately thought of you. Glad you're enjoying the snare drum
Did you see the Sky blue Pearl Gretsch ? Another nice one for sure !

Cheers !

Totally classic set-up. Enjoy that one. Is that the era with the crossed sticks on the badges?

Dan,

1960/61 Ludwig kits have 'pre-serial number' keystone badges. (Brass keystone badges - no numbers at the top.)

No worries. You can tell how well these match. Not uncommon at all as far as the badge(s). Beautiful drums!
