Hey, I bought this set off craigslist yesterday for $300. It's a mixed Ludwig set.. 20" bass drum, 14x14 floor tom, and 12x10 rack tom.. the date stamp on the inside of the bass drum is smudged and I can only make out June 20 19**.... something something. The guy I bought it from said the floor tom alone is worth $200. It's a 14x14 Ludwig floor tom. It has two of the three original legs. Otherwise, didn't know much else about it. All three pieces are from around the same time.. but none belong to their original set.
Anyway, the hoops on the bass drum were this crappy tacked on sparkle red color obviously put on from another set. What kind of hoops do you think would go well with this old rough walnut brown vintage finish? It's very grainy and rough, so I don't think I'd want glossy hoops. Do you think a light maple would look good or should I go for a safer bet.. like metal hoops?
(not pictured is the rack tom. it's in the basement at the moment.)[/img][/list]
