Default Nov 12, 2007 - Ludwig Drum Sets

Hello Vintage drummers!

As stated in another thread and spurred on by our resident Ludwig enthusiasts I will be compiling the Ludwig Configuration page..

This will feature the different configurations pictorially over the years through catalog scans, articles, magazine adds and drum sets from VSD members.

This is the page and it will change over time....Only the Jazzette and Rockers are clickable at the moment...

Ok, the foundation is in place and all of the images click to that configuration page....

Now I pull all of my Ludwig catalogs and see how and when the names started and changed...If in a different catalogs it is the same picture I will just list the year it is the same as long as all of the data is the same.

I will also add names as I go for different configurations...

They had a lot more in the 60's

I'm staying away from WFL names...

Big Beat Drum Set
Rock Duo Drum Set

No Changes
Hollywood Drum Set
Super Classic Drum Set
Jazzette Remained the same...

Added:

Quadra Plus Drum Set

Great project! I've been thinking it would be cool to photograph drums set up like they were in the catalog. My first attempt has been a gold sparkle Hollywood kit...feel free to use it. If you think it's a good idea, I could also do a Deluxe Classic kit, a Gold Coast kit, and a Jazzette kit this way.

Sure, I was going to set up each configuration with sets from drummers like the bottom of the jazzette page...

This will be perfect!
