1918 Ludwig Drum Sets

This is the only set pictured in the 1918 catalog. as you know the "Outfit" was just becoming part of the drumming world. We do know the bass drum pedals have been around since the late 1800's and the first Ludwig Pedal Patent was in 1909. So, drummers were using them in their playing, but companies were not putting together in catalogs.
