This is the story of a difficult but very satisfying restoration of a very trashed Ludwig Super Classic set, in Sky Blue Pearl.
I went to a real live auction at Sydney’s Combined Auctions. Of course, I ran into Australian bass legend Harry Bruce. I also ran into these drums. Harry kindly passed on bidding on them for me. He did however snag a lovely WMP 50’s kit. I got these. Hmmmm . . . .
Scary, I know. I got this kick and a floor tom for $350. I had a lot of work to do. Hardware looked a bit – rusty. And somewhere under that layer of grime was a Ludwig Super Classic in Sky Blue Pearl – a very desirable finish.
