Finally had a chance to pound on these a bit and they sound really good. Had to do a bit of tweaking (factory tension rods on the 12" batter side were too long and ran out of threads before I had as much tension on the head as I wanted so I had to substitute some shorter ones...vintage Ludwig ones of course). Other than that these are very nice. I'm sure to be using them for a gig soon...

I agree as a regular factory option on the heads. He detailed his reso and sound guys can sometimes get creative. The fact the model of head didn`t exist, in a non factor.

That`s what is going on inside Bonham`s stage gear head.
It`s a drum,.....Hit It !!

Late to the party, as usual. Those look fantastic! Really cool that you stayed on these for so long & it finally paid off. You had some money, he had some drums. Now he has some money & you have some drums. One day, you'll have some money again & someone else will have some drums. It's how the world goes 'round......marko
