Default Ludwig 1976 "Pro Beat" drums for sale

Hi guys,

I just relisted on ebay, "Ludwig vintage 5 (or 6) piece drum kit."
Item number is 283871994604 My ebay handle is tynesidescottish. $1,800 Buy It Now.

UPS Ground has estimated $500 to ship the 4 large boxes from California to New York City. (That includes the weight of the optional snare drum.) I will reimburse the difference via Paypal, if the shipping costs are less.

If a VDF member buys them OUTSIDE of ebay, I can give a discount of 10% of $1800, or $180. And if someone brings cash, I can discount the paypal fee that I would incur - $60. That'll pay for a lot of gasoline!

Lemmee know if interested via PM or email. My email address is

I enjoy and appreciate all I've learned about drums from you guys. This "Pro Beat" kit was my dream kit when I was 24 years old, but it's just too big and heavy nowadays. I'm playing a smaller and lighter kit now.

Regards, Marty Black

I don't blame you for not wanting to ship those big drums. Good luck selling them.

Thanks Bob, - Today, I lowered the ebay price to $2000; $1800 for VDF members who bypass ebay. That's more in line with the times, I think. Rough time for everyone. Hang in there, MB
