Ludwig – 1969 Downbeat 20″, 14″, 12″, Set, Blue Oyster Pearl, Excellent! – $2,395.00
How do these amazing drums keep finding me?!?! I swear, they just show up! I don’t know what it is, but it’s working!!
1969 Ludwig Downbeat drum set in Blue Oyster Pearl finish, with 20×14″ bass drum, 14×14″ floor tom, 12×8″ rack tom. The set is near perfect. The bass drum has been modified, by moving the Rail Conlsolete tom mount to the left. The good news is they used the tiniest drill bit possible so the 2 extra holes are much smaller than the standard Ludwig size holes. They’re barely visible. With some putty and careful touch up paint you could make them close to invisible. The interior of the bass is painted black and an additional Ludwig cymbal mount has been added right over the badge. Otherwise the set is in amazing shape, and unmodified. Cymbal stands, hi hat stand, snare stand, cymbals and throne are not included.
FYI. That’s Ringo Starr’s longtime drum tech Jeff Chonis putting them through their paces in the first shot!
