Default Video Tour: 1969 Oyster Blue Pearl Ludwig

My 1969 Blue Oyster Pearl Ludwigs 20/13/16. Don't know if that makes it a super classic with small bass or a downbeat with big toms.

It's transitiony. 70's rail mount, 70's style wrap, keystone badges, clear interiors. A little less "Bowling Bally" than later ones to my eye.

My nicest kit, here's a soundtest/video tour (not a playing sample! ) I made of it one day shortly after I got it & cleaned it up:
