I read an article you wrote and thought you would be a good person to ask if you have ever heard of a steel kit like mine.
My 70's Ludwig stainless steel kit appears to fall into the category of "the only one known to exist", because of the kick drum size. My kick drum is a Ludwig factory virgin 14x28 (NOT a marcher converted) and is with it's mates it left the factory with except snare, 12x15 tom, 16x16 fl, 16x18 fl. My 28 kick and 15 tom are consecutive serial numbers. There is no mention of one on the internet.
Rob Cook (Rebeats) has authenticated my kit as a factory grouping of drums so all of the fine details have been scrutinized and it is the real deal. I have owned the kit for over 29 years and have always been on the lookout for another, asking knowledgeable people like yourself if they have ever heard of another. Well no one has ever heard of one, and they are very resistant to believe I have, what I think I have, thus why I had it authenticated by Rob. Unfortunately I am the second owner of the kit which also factored into taking it to Rob.
So, are you aware of any other steel kits Ludwig produced with a 28 kick?
Thank you for your time, Scott
