Awesome set! From what I can see, it appears they are late 70's Ludwigs, excellent drums. That setup looks realllly fun to play, the only thing I'd suggest is more toms!

Great kit!

Sweet kit. 6 ply shells. Is that an 18" floor? I drove a Luddie 6 ply 26, 15, 16, 18 for a fair number of years. Great sounding drums.

I think it's mid 70's...do the badges have pointy or round corners? They look to be pointy.

Would 80's even be considered vintage? It's just like me turning on the classic rock radio station the other day and hearing them play Spoonman by Soundgarden. I couldn't believe it! I guess enough time has passed and I'll just have to except the things (like "vintage 80's drumkits" and "90s classic rock") that don't make sense to me...

In the context of, yes. One definition of vintage is simple "not of the current era". As the 6 ply shell is not a current production shell, and the blue/olive badge went out-of-print, replaced by the Monroe badge, and then re-issued. They weren't built in the 90's or the current decade. Clothing works the same way, anything from another "era" can be vintage. In terms of wine, where I believe the word originated, "vintage" simple means 75, 85, or 95% of the wine in a dated bottle must be from that year. Depends on who's scale you're using, and in what country you're in. Hence, you could be drinking a vintage wine from 2007, 1997 or 1957. Some hard-core car snobs might hold fast the term "vintage car" to mean the years between 1919 and 1930, and no other years. But there are plenty of car shows out there every night and/or weekend that hark vintage 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's.

6. the class of a dated object with reference to era of production or use: a hat of last year's vintage.

Great kit!
The set has 4 more toms, but room and learning to use all of them is the factor...hopefully I'll get there soon!...Thanks

Dude, you have to set the whole thing up at least once - outside maybe. That sounds like a beast. I had an old Tama Imperialstar with 7 concert toms when I was in high school. I sold it like a dumb kid, but I really wish I still had it.

Very cool!

Question, does it have a bearing edge on the bottom?

I believe Ludwig used to use the same shells for standard and concert toms.

Slingerland did not. The bottom of the shell was a straight cut off.
