Here's an old Pioneer I have. May be the best duco I have--no scuffs, no scratches, no fade, no crackle:

Here's my contribution! A beautiful Super Classic. The snare, bass and rack tom are from 1970, with the floor tom from some time in 1971. The second floor tom was purchased separately and is quite a few years newer. However, the construction is identical to the other drums, meaning 3-ply clear maple interior with solid maple reinforcing hoops.

This was a 1968 Supra 400 I received as payment for computer work for a client. It was sitting in his closet and he only remembered it when I mentioned I played drums. Completely covered in some kind of sticky film, including the drum heads. I completely refurbished it and it was incredible looking. No "acne" anywhere, due to the protective film over the whole drum. A real beauty. Truth be told, I did make a nice profit when it sold...but I still miss it!

Forgot about my 2012 Classic Maple Downbeat kit! A stunning kit...but they've been packed back in their original Ludwig boxes, as I plan to sell them. Less than 30 minutes of total playing time. I played them so lightly that you can't see stick marks and the kit still looks mint!

grantro!

Yes, I do love them! However, the sad fact is that I don't use them and don't gig anymore. They are better than factory and should go to someone who will use them. A truly one-of-a-kind kit!

Just finished about a month ago...65 Super Classic with matching Jazzfest and original Supraphonic (Not pictured...it's just a metal drum :P)

The Keystone badge era kits are heavenly. Nothing comes close in sound + mojo.

Here's a picture of my Club Dates, without any cymbals or cymbal stands to get in the way of seeing the drums.
Also, a picture of my snares from the "show me you snare drums" thread a few months ago.
There's a couple non-luddies in there. I'm at work, if not working. I snatched the photos from my profile.

There's some great stuff here. I miss my Super Classics.

Another taste of my collection.
The 65 OBP Superbeat is basically NOS. MINT.
As is the 67 Blue Sparkle Super Classic.
LOVE all these drums!!
