That is quite a kit. Not too, too many guys can say they still have a kit they ordered or even bought back then. I sure don't.

I am lucky in that I ordered my "dream kit". I had fingered the Ludwig catalogs till the words were so smudged trying to decide what to buy. I have loved their sound from day one. There were times I considered rewrapping them but always stood back and said "Nope, they are gorgeous".
Now I get to show my children & grandchildren the sales receipts and cancelled check and tell them about all the garage bands and gigs when they were played.

Hi woody1953...and to the forum! What a great story! Really sounds like what many of us went through. However, you still have your first kit! Really brings a smile to my face. Thanks for sharing!
