I am hoping one/some of you might share your experience and knowledge on the Ludwig Downbeat Kit. I have an opportunity to own one (it would then be my main kit). I have read several articles/pieces of literature/fliers online but am curious about your personal opinions and knowledge.
The kit I am looking at is a 1964 in Champagne Sparkle in the classic downbeat sizes 12, 14, 20 with matching piccolo snare and vintage hardware (minus the hat stand) including a rogers swiv-o-matic pedal! The kit is in beautiful condition other than some extra holes drilled into the kick and a frayed red leather original throne.
I play a mix of blues, folk, classic rock. I appreciate any insight you can provide.
Peace and a Groove,
