Maybe not, but while you weren't looking, someone stole most of your resonant heads, lol.

Nice looking vintage set of drums.

Something doesn't quite add up here. Ludwig's 6-ply shells didn't appear until 1976. Looking closely at the pictures, the insides of the shells look like they have re-rings, so they must be 3-ply shells! SCORE!!!

Nice kit!

Thanks, typo in my original post, the kit was purchased in 1976 not 1975.

As far as the ply......not sure. I thought they were 6 because the concert toms first showed up in the catalog in the 1975-1 booklet (I think), and as you point out Ludwig went to 6 ply in 1976. However these were ordered in the Spring of '76, so ..... "1975" 3 ply?

I do believe those are re-rings. The shell interior is factory-sprayed (granitone?) and the edge was clear wood, but like most teens, I was stupid and painted the edge silver to 'match' my kit.

Very nice kit!! There is something about vintage Ludwig's that brings a smile to my face! I guess it's a reminder of my childhood, everyone had Ludwig's! I am so glad that have made a strong come back! I love my Luddies!

I had something similar in the 1970's; it brings back sweet memories. Atlas hardware too.

Nice kit.

Yeah its kept well. Although the band I was in had very few outside gigs, and the ability to stack the toms let me keep them in big trunk style trap cases.

LOL I generally don't drag the rotos around when I play. But in the interest of "he who dies with the most drums wins" I keep everything set up. Many will tell you concert toms themselves are tacky - so why not go the whole 9 yards with the roto's!

Blasphemy! Roll that back to 1982 and those roto toms would be the guest of honor at the party. But then again, a mullet would be too, so I kinda see what your saying. I miss those days :)
