Default 1976 Ludwig Stainless Steel Bop kit

Kit was made from abused marching concert tom shells in sizes 8x12, 10x14, and 10x18. Hand planished, sanded, polished to return their former glory. One kit Ludwig never made!

What a great way to recycle and restore marching drums into cool (one of a kind) jazz drums.
