A Ludwig Super Classic Restoration

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 them for me.

Ludwig Super Classic bass drum in Sky Blue Pearl. 1965.
Super classic floor tom.

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 in Sky Blue Pearl – a very desirable finish.
