Default Ludwig Club Date ? 100.00?

Hi, I found this drum set for sale and the seller wants me to make an offer. The picture was sent over the phone. I am leaving for vacation in a couple days and my time is very limited so I dont want to go look if his price is too high. I was thinking on a hundred bucks, what do you think? I know, cant get a value from a picture and need more pics to help but as I said time a big factor here and wanted to snag it before I am gone for two weeks. Based on the very small amount of info, what would be a good reasonable offer to get the dealing started. They are sky blue pearl, no floor tom.

$100--$150. If he accepts the offer, grab 'em.

That snare alone is probably worth a pretty penny being 8 lug and all and assuming no major issues.

They're called "Combo".
Later versions came with Acrolites or Pioneer snares so this one must be early because this is a Jazz Festival if I'm not mistaken!. (1959 to 1962).

What a beautiful set !

If you get these for 100usd, you did the bargain of the month !

In Europe, they would go 6 to 7 times that price.

Grab'm !

If you can get them for less than 300, it's a smokin' deal. The snare alone is a Jazz Fest and in that color likely worth 400 or more if in good condition. The "missing floor tom" may not be missing, this config is called the "Combo". It is the same drums as the C/D minus the floor tom. That color is one of the classy wraps, like WMP or Chhamp sp.

He wants 400.00 and says the base drum is missing the "studs" on one side. Still have not seen in person.

Go check it out and as part of the dealing point out that the front hoop, T's, and claws are missing. It also appears that part of the rail consolette and "L" arm is missing to mount the tom. Point out what's missing/incomplete about the kit to him and counter offer at $250 or something like that.
