Dating a ludwig drum

looking at a black oyster bonham style ludwig kit with monroe keystone badges,,the 14" tom serial number is 3395937..also has a 26in kick and 16 and 18in floor toms,,,anyone know what kind of ludwigs these are ? hey guys,,, thanks for the help,,,yep,,i had to pull the trigger on these drums,,the store said they think there early 2000's so im thinking they might of been a special order kit,i dont think a 26" kick was avalible then,,not sure,,,i will let ya guys know when i get them,,by the way,,,,anyone need a bonham accent kit in silver sparkle ??? It wasn't a special order on the badges, Ludwig used double badges for a few years.

My limited experience generally comes from drooling over all you guys here on the forum that own them.

I thought it was just to provide an extra "branding option" should the RIMS mount cover the badge. Mind you something like that would retail for around 5 and a half to 6 thousand here (last I checked), so we seldom see CM's on the shop floor at all in Oz.

I've seen it on other brands with RIMS style mounting.

I can't recall if they have 2 badges, but I'm playing that kit tonight, so I'll look. I looked last night, & the 8x12 Sable Black tom I got last year (2010) has one badge. I bought the RS 8x12 late in 2008, or early 2009 (can't remember), & it has 2 badges, so they would have stopped doing 2 badges on toms between '08 -'09....maybe '10....

BTW, Ludwig has *always* had a 26" bass drum available (*since they started offering them).

As far as I know, they are the only "major" offering 3 different lug style choices, & 2 badge choices (B/O or Keystone).

Not sure if it applies to both CM and Legacy, but for sure for the Classic Maple.

Ludwig will also apply a finish a customer sends to them, if someone wanted a finish they don't offer.
