Default My old Ludwigs just had a Birthday

The first kit I ever touched, I used on a gig this weekend. 54 years old. I still have all the original pieces but use a slightly modified setup for it.

It is officially my son's kit. I will always endorse Stone Custom Drum.

That's cool that you still have them. They're one yr. younger than me. My first 2 kits weren't worth keeping, but I wish I had my 3rd kit. Ludwig Standards. They were from the 60's. Oh if your Ludwig's could talk, I bet there would be tails to tell. Your son's starting out on some good drums. Happy birthday to your drums.
