Default Re: Some old non-descript Ludwigs

Oh, sure, they are good shells. But once you go through the trouble to cut down the toms, you might as well just completely resto-mod them. Get some nice wrap, polish all the chrome, replace the damaged bass hoops, upgrade the worn-out hardware... This set can be made into something really nice and I have done it in the past, when I was younger and had more time for such projects. I have learned that by the time you're done, you'll have spent too much time and more money than an inherently better set could have been had for. It's not that these are bad drums, it's just that they need too much to become desirable drums. There are so many better sets out there going begging that something like this is basically not worth the effort anymore.
