Could well have been someone ordered that drum as a virgin. Added the consolette after the drum arrived. Placed it where he wanted it, as opposed to where the factory normally puts 'em. Check the Blue Note double bass kit. http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/ludw...sets_1960.html No tom mounts. The shell mounted cymbal holders are $6.50 each. So you save that, if you don't order it.

And the badges are centered. It wasn't until 63/64 or so, that Ludwig started with the off-set vent hole. Closer to the reso on the kick ..... and more towards the batter head on the toms.
