Condition – 7.5/10. This piece of playable history has made it through the years in great condition!

While Ludwig’s Super Classic had existed before 76, this is the year Ludwig revitalised the formula for these outfits with 6ply Maple Poplar hybrid shells, thus creating a set of drums that would go on to define the sound of a decade! Nowadays Maple & Poplar hybrid shells have become the go-to for brands looking to recapture the sonic palette of yesteryear, a la the Gretsch Broadkaster and Ludwig’s own Legacy Maple series.

This Ludwig Super Classic has also made it through the years in great condition! It’s badges all look stellar and haven’t caught or lipped up, its shells have truly minimal wear to their sleek black cortez finish, and their is only a handful of very minor dinks across all drums. We believe the batter side bass hoop may have been partially repainted(see pics). Please also note there are some marks inside the bass drum near its port hole, and a cluster of drilled holes on the floor tom that have been taped over, please see pictures for more info on this!

We’ve identified this shell pack as being from 1977. It’s serial number narrows production time down to between 77 and 78, however, this shell packs pointy edged badges were phased out for a design with more rounded edges by 1978. While you can also count the 6 plies of Maple and Poplar in each shell, their clear lacquered interior wasn’t used for pre 76 Mahogany kits, as Ludwig would only move away from painting the inside of their Super Classic shells with the switch to maple and poplar shells!

    Great service as always. Been buying almost all my gear (new and used) at Drummers Only since 2010. Numerous … More reasons but mainly the service and advice. I've dealt with most of the staff over the years, but mainly the now manager Chris who is a top lad and great asset to the store/company. Whether buying a new kit or a pair of sticks, he always takes time to give advice and support. This time it was a snare head; great advice on both selection and the black art of fitting & tuning. It's sounding sweet, thanks as always for the great service and support. THANKS CHRIS AND ALL AT DRUMMERS ONLY

    A fantastic store with a great range of anything to do with drumming, I had help from the lovely staff … More there who guided me on what I was looking for, as well as a kit to test them out prior to purchase!I highly recommend coming here for any new gear you are looking for, or a good guide on what you have in mind!

    I'd been after an 18" floor tom for a while.Bought a second hand PDP. To be honest it doesn't … More even look second hand. Really happy with it especially as it was practically half the price! I'm in the recording studio tomorrow so it'll be being put to good use. Already rehearsed with it and it sounds pukka! Deep and booming. Can't recommend Drummers Only enough. Really happy and as always your goods are shipped prompt with lots of protection.

    Ordered a Yamaha electronic kit for my son for Christmas. Great service in store, delivered promptly. … More However the snare drum was a bit loose on the frame and the guys not only ordered a new part but delivered it to my home personally. Great guys, great service and great products.

    Great drum shop has a huge selection and the customer service is decent. The guys in the shop are cool … More although they seem to be a carbon copy of each other. A little diversity in terms of personality wouldn't go a miss.
