I would go with either of the Slingerlands. The Ludwig is a single-tension marching drum that will have a low, boxy sound and would not be good for drumset playing. The metal shell Krupa Slingerland is nice but it looks like the muffler has been replaced and the bottom hoop is not original, but for the price, is a nice drum. The wood shell drum is nice too and looks to be all original, including the strainer, but it has been refinished. Both are esentially the same drum with different shells. If I had to decide, I'd go with the wood shell Slingerland, I have a Leedy Shelly Manne 5.5x14 version of that drum and it sounds great, a nice warm sound. All are quality drums though, but either of the Slingerlands would be better for drumset playing.
