View Full Version : Looking to trade pristine 1976 Ludwig LM400 for LM402

a few months back i was fortunate enough to acquire a complete 1976 ludwig stainless steel big beat outfit in extraordinary cosmetic/sonic condition. anyhow, though i am a recent ludwig convert and somewhat partial to the boxy like quality of the lm400, i'm far more partial (read my bandmates prefer) the more throaty and raspy quality of the lm402. so if anyone out there has an lm402 they're willing to trade for my lm400 (plus balance owed of course), please drop me a line or two. thanks.
