    A common wait-time for USA made shell packs................like the Corvette, they don't make any spec-kits.
    I agree that one would think that a wrapped kit would be delivered quicker than a wood finish.
    For instant gratification, buy off the floor of a dealer or go the used route.

    First time I ever went to Forks, there were two or three of everything on the sales floor -- Tama/Pearl/Ludwig/DW/Yamaha..........along with 28 Gretsch USA shell packs.

    From the hoop it almost looks like mahogany. But I'm no Ludwig expert. Nice looking kit however.

    Yeah I thought about that I am 25 miles away from a great drum store that rhymes with "crumb menter of Fortsmith" The problem with buying off the floor (which I have always done) is you cannot get the small details you want, like a 22 x 16 bd with the ride cymbal mount already installed on the bd in the color I want with different color hoop inlays and mini lugs.. etc etc : ) I was expecting 8-12 weeks but 16-20 seems ludicrous. I really want the experience of buying custom as well. I know it's probably stupid and will cost me a little more but what can I say.

    I gave all my specs to sweep water as well but have not heard back from them in 3 days.

    LOL, Yeah I know it well. I am all over the map right now, I wanted a a higher end birch kit for gigging but after playing a classic maple for a few songs I must have one. I still want a higher end birch as well and will eventually get both if I can sell a few things.

    If you are anything like me, you won't be satisfied until you do exactly what you want. No short cuts, no settling. It's a good illness to have. I guess the hard part is when you decide you are going for it, then you have to design it and remember it's yours personally. Spend wisely.

    Check out Ludwig's quick pick options. They have drums on hand for common sizes and finishes. I ordered a Ludwig CM kit a couple of years ago from my local 5 Star shop in 14x22, 8x12, 14x14 black sparkle and got it in 4 weeks.

    I just ordered a matching CM snare, 6.5x14 in black sparkle. Got it in 3 weeks.

    I didn't realize there was more than one choice. If the black galaxy is like my snare drum.....I like lots if glitter (bigger to an extent) I'd probably go black sparkle.

    This shows the black galaxy (if my information is accurate).

    It's a 2014? Club Date SE, seems like a lower model made in Taiwan 6ply cherry and gum wood, and that color is Olive sparkle

    Sorry for the delayed response. I don't have any great pics, below is all that I have.

    The thing about the Delmar black sparkle wrap that Ludwig uses is that the sparkles are actually a minty green color that give off a green hue in daylight that is hard to photograph. The sparkle effect also looks great under stage lights.

    I've never seen Black Galaxy in person so I can't really offer any useful comments on that wrap. But I do prefer Black Sparkle for its simplicity and for the reasons above. I'm glad I went with it.

    I'll try to get some more photos under lights from my upcoming gigs.

    Hope this helps ...

    Ludwig sparkles have been awesome since the 60's when they first caught my eye. They were even in color back then.

    Just "FINALLY" ordered my ludwig Classic maple kit...Damn I am pumped!!!! Alright guys, Mark my words, if I sell this one, I will ummmm..., well I will quit drumchat forever! Not a huge loss I get it but just know I will also flog myself 4 times. Hard too : )

    Anyway I ordered a 22 x16 BD with a center mount for a single tom. I know, I know all you virgin BD guys, it will sound inferior now that I had it drilled but I will suffer on in the name of ease ability for my purpose. A 12 x9 rack tom with atlas mount and classic lugs, and a 16 x 15 floor tom with keystone legs holders all in a gorgeous discontinuing White Glitter wrap...

    I thought about ordering a matching snare but over $550 for a CM snare when there are so many used ones out there for less than half that price was a hard pill to swallow and I am not a big fan of matching snares to begin with so instead I got a 14 x 6.5 Keystone Oak/Maple snare drum White inside as well as outside that I really fell in love with months ago.

    I will post pics in 8-10 weeks when I get it. Shane thinks that the white glitter may be all gone as they are discontinuing it but we tried it anyway.

    Congrats!

    I have one that is pretty close to your ordered configuration. Mine is a 2003 16x22, 9x12, 13x15 natural maple with a matching 5x14 snare. They sound great, especially the kick and snare.

    When I bought my recent CM kit, I too decided against a matching snare but after a while the bug bit me and I just couldn't help myself.

    Did you consider the Atlas rail mount? Classic look, fantastic functionality and no holes required.
