Default Local DC area Ludwig find

So found this awesome all original kit in my local area. It has factory heads, all chrome hardware, no mods, all stamps, close serial numbers, factory heads, and really just seems as though it was never played much.

Great find, man! Was this on the DC area craigslist? Iím in the Dulles area, so Iíll monitor the DC Craigslist from time to time. There actually was a Champagne Sparkle Club Date near me in Sterling, but it seemed to be in rougher shape, with the floor tom hoop and head missing.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

This was on eBay. Looks like another is being sold by Richard so maybe he bought that one?

Classy kit! They look happy to have an owner that will play with them.
