Comments about Ludwig Classic Maple 3-Piece Fab Shell Pack with 22 in. Bass Drum:
I saw this set on the floor at a Guitar Center store (more about that later) while on vacation and knew I had to have these drums! They are NOTHING like the old "vintage" Ludwig's of the '60's and 70's. So much better in every way! Workmanship is flawless. Shells are beautiful, all-maple, made in USA. Bearing edges are perfect and cut at a clean 45 degree angle. The Vintage Black Oyster wrap is vibrant, and looks very much like the old pre- 1969 stuff of the Ringo days. Ludwig has made so many improvements since then, the quality of this kit is no comparison to the Ludwig's of a by-gone era. The best part: these drums not only look fantastic, they sound incredible! I also got the matching 5x14 snare with this kit (a la Ringo's Jazz Fest 8 lug, but this one is 10 lug for better tuning, and does NOT cost $5-10K!). So much fun to play, and all heads were turning at the gig this past weekend. These drums are an attention getter! I LOVE this kit! A true "Ringo" kit that is much better quality and less money than a 60's version. I mean no disrespect to the vintage drum collectors out there...it's totally cool to own a 60's vintage Ludwig Ringo kit. I just didn't want to spend the money it takes to get one in perfect condition, and wanted solid maple shells and better over-all quality! Thanks Ludwig and Ringo for making me want to play drums, and thanks to GC for giving me the opportunity to own a great kit at a reasonable price. Very satisfied.
