The Outfit of Famous Drummers 1964

SKF NOTE: I never owned a Ludwig drumset, but in 1964 this full-page magazine ad was a dream builder or me. I wouldn’t own a drumset for another five years, and my first set was a mutt kit of Gretsch and no-name Japanese drums.

Interestingly, this $464 drum package (drums and cymbals) would cost $4,173.04 in 2021. The cumulative rate of inflation since 1964 is almost 800-percent.
