Every once in a while we will get a call from a customer that is somewhat out of the ordinary. I recently visited a local summer camp that had a few drum sets that were in need of some work. When I arrived to inspect the drums I was able to piece back together two drum sets that needed new heads and cleaned. I was not expecting to find a vintage set of drums. The Ludwig Club Date that I found had all the original parts except for the cymbal arm and a hoop on the mounted tom.

While I knew it would be a challenge, I was determined to make these drums look and sound great again. Below is a basic breakdown of the steps taken to get the drums back into excellent condition. The process started by stripping down the hardware lugs, tension rods, strainers, hoop until the shells were empty and able to be cleaned. The interior of the shells were sanded and repainted white to bring back the classic look that these drums had when constructed so many years ago.
