Are you SURE it's a Ludwig bass drum that somebody replaced all of the Ludwig hardware on, without any extra holes being drilled into the shell? Since it's a rewrap, it's entirely possible that somebody combined a Slingerland bass drum with Ludwig toms. It wouldn't sound that much different, and wouldn't look that different from the inside, seeing as though the shells are VERY similar.

I'll bet it sounds fantastic!

Sling and Lud hole spacings are different on the lugs.....both small and large .....AFAIK

....soooooooo, if there are no extra holes in the shell, the lug casings are original to the shell, and it IS a Slingerland. I thought the hole spacing was different, but I wasn't sure. Thanks, Blairndrums!

@Mark (vintagemore2000): Thanks for the kind words. I look forward to giving it a "test drive"!

@caddywumpus: YES, I'm sure that it's a Ludwig bass drum. The shell is factory-drilled to accept Ludwig Classic lugs. The prior owner had an additional hole drilled at each lug to accomodate the replacement Slingerland lugs. Why anybody would even consider doing such a thing is a total mystery to me, but that's what they did. You can't see the additional holes from the exterior of the shell but you can from the interior. Despite this bizarre decision you are correct that the kit DOES sound fantastic.

@longjohn: Thanks for the positive feedback.

@Blair (blairndrums): You are correct, as usual, as noted in my comment to caddywumpus.

@Gerald Sterken: Appreciate the input!

Thanks so much, John, and thanks for the advice you provided when I was thinking of passing on the kit. I appreciate it. BTW...The bass drum actually is a Ludwig that the prior owner drilled extra holes into to accomodate the replacement Slingerland lugs.
