    Red face My holy grail hunt ended: Ludwig 20" bass drum

    My personal holy grail hunt that lasted about 10 years ended today when I got this baby. It’s a 20”x14” Ludwig Classic Maple 6-ply bass drum from the late 70s (B/O-badge) in black cortex. It is in good shape and all original except for the cymbal arm mount which was added at some point. This size is extremely hard to find since they only made 20” bass drums by special order at the time. Now I want that 14”x14” floor tom. I guess it’s another 10 year wait for me

    This is the collection so far:

    Bass drums: 20”x14”, 22”x14”, 24”x14”
    Rack toms: 12”x8”, 13”x9”, 14”x10”
    Floor toms: 16”x16”, 18”x16”

    Love the kit, and that 20" BD is so killer man. I'm feeling a little jealous right now
