Super rare "Special Ludwig Deluxe Drum Outfit" from the late 1930's. As shown in the attached 1940 Ludwig catalog, this complete outfit as the pinnacle of the outfits offered by Ludwig during this era. It comes complete with a rolling console that wheels into place over the bass drum to make positioning this outfit on the stage an easy affair. The console comes complete with trap table, 6 cymbal arms of varying height and shape, temple block rack with set of 5 temple blocks, and two mounting arms for a snare drum and two tom toms. The console clamps to the BD counter hoop at the top near the player and at the bottom front to secure the BD in place. The four drums included in this outfit are all in beautifu, completely original condition. The White Avalon Pearl wrap is in excellent condition on all drums. It has yellowed slightly giving the drums a beautiful vintage patina. The snare drum (4006 stamp) is a 7x14 "Swing" model drum with extended snare bridges and standard strainer. The two tom toms (3905 stamp) have new tacked bottom heads. They come complete drum key mounts and drum keys. The aero-kraft bass drum (3912 stamp) is a full 28" drum so modern bass drum heads will fit the drum. It is a custom constructed drum with 9 double tension Imperial lugs rather than the normal 10 lugs. This give the drum more stability when attached to the console. The original Ludwig calf skin painted ressonant head is aa standard personalized head with the initials H.H. painted on the head. A period correct high sock cymbal stand, Racer bass drum pedal, and double pad muffler round out the outfit. We have many period correct cymbals, traps, arms and sound effects to round out the outfit. This is a truly unique opportunity to own one of the rarest and most attractive outfits that Ludwig made in the 1930's. All items pictured (listed below) are included in this outfit
