For your consideration is this 3PC Ludwig Super Classic Red Sparkle Set
Keystone Badges - White interior set
The sizes are:
9x13" rack tom
16x16" floor tom
14x22" bass drum
The set wasn't born together. Only rack tom and floor tom are factory match, but they complement each other nicely as they are from the same era and in the exact same finish.
9x13" rack tom: serial #286639. The shell presents 2 extra holes performed to switch the bracket position. This was done with the purpose of leaving the badge facing the audience. This tom was originally part of a Hollywood set where the bracket was located in a different angle. The holes were plugged and covered with the same red sparkle wrap, so they disguise pretty well. In addition, It seems like this tom used to have double muffler. One of them is still present. The second one isn't and its holes were plugged and covered. Please see detailed pictures. The hardware is all original and in good condition, with moderate wear. Red sparkle wrap in VG condition with practically no fading. Perfect bearing edges.
It features a Remo Diplomat head on the batter side and a Premier coated on the resonant side. Both in good condition.
16x16" Floor tom: serial # 285126. This floor tom is in beautiful shape. No extra holes. The wrap is in VG condition. No fading and moderate wear, such as mild scratches. No seam lifting. The hardware is in VG condition. No heavy rust or pitting. Just scratches and normal wear. All original. This floor tom features a Remo Ambassador on the batter side and a clear Remo Ambassador on the resonant side. Original black muffler is present.
14x22" Bass Drum: serial #330103. The bass drum is in good condition. The shell presents four extra holes. Two of them were performed to move the consolette for left handed players. It was then returned to its original right hand position. The other two holes were left after the L arm bracket was moved to the opposite side, because of the same reasons above. All four holes were plugged and covered with red sparkle matching wrap. The hardware is in good condition with moderate wear, such as scratches and scuffs. No heavy rust. The bass drum comes with a Remo Powerstroke 3 on the batter side and an original Ludwig in the front resonant.
One of the hoops has the Red Sparkle inlay while the other one has Red Silk inlay.
