Default Ludwig Blue Marble kit

I picked up this beautiful Ludwig Blue Marble kit recently. It is from 1994. It still had the original heads on it.

These were hand painted kits and only made for a couple of years due to the time and labor involved to make the kits. It really is a work of art.

I have only seen pictures of 2 other kits like this one. They made them in just a few colors. The Blue Marble like mine was featured on the 1994 Ludwig catalog.

Sizes:
12, 13, 16, 22; 6.5 x 14 Supraphonic


It came with the Zildjian splash and arm, as well as a Ludwig Speed King Pedal.

This is an absolutely gorgeous finish in person.

The finish is not for me, sorry...but I won't wag my finger at a nice set of Ludwigs. Looks like they're in pretty good condition too. Those toms must be thunderous in those sizes. Any pics of them fully set up?

I don't have any set up pictures yet. Hopefully, soon though.

Great pics RedneckAbbot and NYDrumma.

I had been keeping an eye out for a 10" tom, but I have been thinking of possibly selling the kit. I am sitting on way too many kits and need to free up some space in order to finish another room in my basement. I'll probably regret it if I do sell them since they are so unique.

I think my dad was interested in buying the kit in Chicago. He might be interested in your kit. How much would you want?
