Gorgeous.
The offset badge on bass drum is not rare in Premier drums of this period but this is the first time I see that issue in a Ludwig.

beautiful Kit ! I have a 1958 WFL New Yorker in Blue Sparkle with a 20" BD that has the exact same offset badge.

Thanks all! The offset badge is era correct for early 50s WFL.
These babies SING!

Very nice!
That’s what I have been playing for the past couple years.
Same sizes but three orphans, all WFL. My 8x12 can get really low but still full of resonance.
12x22 is the best sounding bass drum I have ever had.

There is something about that BD size that tops everything else...I agree with you for sure. Nice kit indeed. I had the blue version.
