*Vintage* Ludwig Educator Drum Kit with original Hardware (Slightly Used)
An interesting, and very rare set of drums…
Ludwig’s Educator drums were made for a brief period – probably less than a year – in the late ’70s, as an entry-level kit to compete with lower prices and rising popularity of Japanese drums, which were taking a toll on Ludwig’s (and other American drum companies’) profits. Although the name suggests they were aimed at schools, they were made available to stores… except that few people knew about them. Ludwig was in-between catalogs at that time and the drums came and went, evidently without even a ‘one-sheet’ on them.
This Particular Vintage drum set has been cleaned and restored using Evans Heads. All Hardware and tom Mounts are original. Great Kit for a collector and great kit in general.
