LUDWIG SUPER CLASSIC 5 PIECE DRUM KIT, SABRE, (PRE-LOVED)
This is very very nice! Here we have a Ludwig Super Classic Maple 90's Drum Kit. The kit is finished in Sabre (Black Lacquer) and is offered in quite unusual sizes.
The Super Classic kits were Ludwig's short-lived thinner 4 ply shell offered roughly between 1988 and 1998. My best guess is this kit is a mid 90's this is based on the more modern bass drum spurs, originally this kit was fitted with a Modular Bass Drum Mount though this has now been charged to a Tama. The Tom Brackets have also been changed to Tama and the kit arrived with the Tama Omni Ball Tom Holders. The brackets and mounts are all perfectly functional and visually don't spoil the kit, I'm very pleased to report that no additional drilling has been done to the shells so the kit could be re-fitted with a modular bass drum mount and classic tom brackets and returned completely to it's original specification. My guess is the original owner changed to the Tama mounts to gain easier positioning with the omni ball holders.
This kit was all made at the same point in time, the serial numbers on the keystone badges are sequential. The set has the long lugs which are very attractive and the drums are all standard depth.
A beautiful looking and typically solid sounding Ludwig American Made Kit, the Super Classic Shells were really a little ahead of their time and offer exceptional low end tone and great body. This is going to be a great kit for someone.
