hmmmm....thinking of pulling the trigger . seller wants $1400 but hoping to get him down further..it has lots of extras I can sell off.

ad says:
"1967 Super Classic. gold sparkle. 3 ply shells (Mahogany/Poplar/Maple). ORIGINAL Supraphonic snare, cowbell, two timbales, PAISTE 602 HH and crash/ride (made in Switzerland), speed king bass drum pedal and hardware. second owner of the kit. Kit is in great condition for it's age. April 11 1967 stamps are all on the inner shells of the drums."

The price is highly dependent on condition. Those are pretty drums. though. I understand your dilemma.

Aren't 1967's Maple/Mahogany/Poplar?

If they are painted white on the insides they should be.

If they are clear on the insides then they're Maple/Poplar/Maple

1400 seems a bit high. Are those timbales?

I'd go 1000 tops.

With the hats & Supra, and in excellent condition, $1400 is slightly high, but not too ridiculous. But if there are any issues with anything, that price needs to come down. I think $1000 is more realistic in this economy, and if they're nice enough and you can get em for that, do it!

With a date of 1967, they should be white-painted mahogany interiors.

But as always with vintage gear - or anything that makes a sound - play them first. If they don't make a great sound, they're not worth much more than the snare, timbales & hats... maybe $600.

Ya all Ludwig, even cowbell!
I also thought $1400 was slightly high, but there's those 1960's 602 cymbals in the deal, and I'm in Canada eh? We pay a little more for everything (at least thats what we're taught ..lol)

Yep...mahogany interiors with "resocoat"(Benjamin Moore Regal semi gloss white paint).That's a little high,even with the extra stuff.Gold sparkle is a pretty common wrap.I'm also a little suspect of the tom mount.The pics are bad,but it looks like a rail consolete,that's mounted dead center on the bass drum,which would be incorrect..

I would ask for more,and clearer pics.:)

I say go for it. I'd pay that just for a speed king, a supra, and matching serials '67 Super Classics in that condition. Maybe I'm a sucker but I think it's a good deal... and the other goodies on top, especially the old 602's, and imo it's a GREAT deal.

There's much wiggle room in that asking price. Buyers own the used market. Name your price. 45 years later and we're discussing Ludwig drums for $1,000+. Every household should own a vintage Ludwig kit.

Hmmm. They are pretty and I am nostalgic....:)

Do you need the timbales and cowbell?

I'd be interested in everything but them.

You could offer $900-1000 for the whole she-bang, minus the timbales and CB.

Indeed! I do not need this kit, but look at it as some part of drum history I can pass down for generations.

Ya I am thinking the extras I don't need (timbales, Supra (got one) and maybe one or two of the 602's ) can be sold off to make the difference. Its been sitting for a month or so on the site and I may let it stew than strike.
Steve - The info about the rail consolette is very useful, its definitely in the wrong place, thx.
