Do the b/w badges have the "U.S.A." next to the Ludwig name? If they do, you have an 80's Rockers set that was possibly made in Chicago. Do they have the Rockers style lugs or the Classic style? Ludwig used the Classic lugs on the early Rockers before swithcing to the Rocker/Standard style. I have a black 80's Rockers set with the Classic lugs and it sounds great. If you choose to rewrap them, the wrap alone will cost close what the drums are worth, around $250, so keep that in mind. The wrap was thinner/lesser quality than the high end Ludwigs of the day and was only attached with tape at the seam, so removing it would be very easy. I wouldn't try staining them though, the 4 ply Poplar shells just aren't good enough quality to take a stain very well, wrapping them would be the best option. Do they have the gray speckled interior or the clear interior? The clear interior versions date from the late 80's and have a maple inner ply making them a little more valuable. Later Rockers are made in Taiwan and have little value but the U.S. made drums are actually very nice and sound very good.
