This is that set that you had asked about earlier, right? Congrats on the purchase, they are sweet. BTW, what did you end up paying for them after all?

Nice kit!

That "old Sonor snare" appears to be a D505 Ferro snare, which would fetch a pretty price if in decent condition. The pic was a bit blured, so I could be mistaken, but I think it is a 505.

Thanks people for comments,
And yes, this is a kit that I ask you for feedback before buying
I got it for $1000, and I think that's a good price.
The kit is in much better condition that I think will be, and have all original parts, only one ludwig badge missing on floor tom.
I play them last night on a gig and only thing I can tell is: best sounding I ever played!!!! amen
And thanks for the snare information, I will try to do better pictures of the snare and drums

If possible, post a pic of the snare strainer and badge up close. A nice D505 Ferro-Manganise, depending on condition, could fetch $300 to $500 (USD).

You will likely need a slotted drum key to adjust it, unless the previous owner changed out the tension rods.

Nice score Mdrummer!

Here is what Ludwig had to say about Stainless in the 1976 Catalog...........



For what it's worth, your Outfit would have been considered, if it came with it's original 5 x 14 Snare, a Model No. 997, one version of the Big Beat..........

Below is the 1978 image showing the larger Pro Beat that had 13, 14, 16 & 18 Toms..............



The '76 & 1978 Ludwig Catalogs were the only two that listed Stainless Outfits................
The raw material became too expensive to make them viable for Ludwig so they dropped them from their "stable."

Dude I like that look, it would be sweet if you got one of those chrome iron cobra pedals.

Keep a pair of white cotton gloves, hardware store handy, or yes you will own stock in some cleaner.

I love that kit! You're making me want to go back to Ludwig again. I'm curious, are the drums heavy? You mentioned you gig with them and I know as a gigging drummer what a pain it is to move equipment.

Contrary to popular belief Stainless drums are not that heavy. I have a 1978 Big Beat kit with a 24" Bass Drum very similar to Mdrummers. I also have a ChromeOwood kit which is a siz ply maple shell with a chrome steel wrap over it. Now wer'e talkin HEAVY!

This is awesome i have a similar set all the same bass drums and toms. Of course i have no bottom heads except for the 18" floor tom. My uncle bought it back in the 80s during the hair band days and after it passed through many hands i ended up with it. Unfortunetly it lost alot of the hardware and took quite the beating over the years before i got it. i played with a 4 piece derived from it for a couple years through highschool till i retired it to the shed where it lies dormant waiting to be resurrected. Although i do use the little 6" in tom as a little aux drum on my set now. Very cool set though wish mine was in half as good shape. Oh ya and my bass drums had wood hoops as well.

Wow. I remember drooling over that particular Ludwig catalog when they introduced the Stainless Steels. I never did realize that dream. Congratulations, those are beautiful!
