I found another Ludwig kit in a wmp finish. It has a Club Date 12, 20, a 16 floor and a 14 Pioneer snare. The guy said he take $1,000 plus a Ludwig Classic Maple snare.

Nice looking but the WMP wrap looks yellower than most kits I've seen from that period. What is the general condition? As to the price, how much is the Ludwig Classic Maple snare you would be giving up worth? I'm not a club date or pioneer fan myself but if the price is right and you can either remove the yellowing or live with it, it looks like a nice find.

I payed $275 for the Ludwig Classic Maple snare, it's a 2011 model. I think the kit looks fine, but it doesn't have the original 14x14 Club Date floor, it's a 16x16 from the late 60's, the 12, 20 are 1966 and the Pioneer is 1964. Other than that, they are in good condition with no extra holes.
I happen to like Pioneer snares, especially one in this finish.

I was under the impression that the floor toms are somewhat hard to come by because the Club Dates were often sold without one. Is that correct or do I have bad information?

I think that you are correct, sir. Johnny Ringo didn't ask my opinion on this matter. But, in my opinion, with his Rogers set and this WMP set, he could be armed for any playing situations that came his way.

That's nice, the color on the 16 looks very close in yellowing (might be more noticeable close up), looks like the pioneer and 16 match well, and appears more pearl in the wrap on the 12 and bass,or maybe it's just the picture , I guess the different lugs won't bother you?

Huh, didn't know that. I stumbled into the bulk of my 1965 Club Date kit for free but it's a Pioneer snare with the 12 and 14 toms. I'm picking up a BD to go with them tomorrow.

This is another part of the vintage drum dump I got where the previous owner slathered all the drums in black house paint and lost half of the hardware. It was kind of a collection of Gretsch and Ludwig cobbled together but I'm restoring them back into 2 separate kits. I just have the snare and high tom to finish on the Gretsch before I move on to the Club Date.
