1980's Ludwig vs. 1980'sTama Swingstar

Hello, my name is Dwight. I'm a 56 yr. old drummer and wanted some opinions. I've had a set of Black Tama Swingstars from the mid 80's and have an opportunity to purchase a set of Ludwigs also from the mid 80's. From what I gather, the Tamas were made in Japan were made from Phillipine Mahogony & the the Ludwigs were made of Maple here in N.C. My Tamas have 12 x 10 & 13 x 11 toms where the Ludwigs have 12 x 8 & a 13 x 9 toms. My kit has Evans heads & the Ludwigs have Remos. The Ludwigs are going for $400.00 for the shells only. # 1 - Is there going to be a distictive sound difference between the two and #2 - Is $400.00 for the Ludwigs, which are in mint condition, a good asking price. Thanks
