Cool 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

Hey all,

I have been putting this set together for a few years now...I finally had the time to set up my stainless set...I`m still tweaking it and moving things around, so, these pics are preliminary shots...These drums sound amazing and I do like the sound of the concert toms...

Pictured are:

Drums:

22 bass drum
5x14 Acrolite
16/18 double head floor toms
12/13/14/15/16/18/20/22/24 concert toms

Cymbals:

14 Amir Hi Hats (1st Gen)
23 Zildjian Sweet Ride
18 Zildjian A`s crashes (3)
16/17 Sabian thin crashes

Not included in the current set-up are:

12/13/14 double headed toms
6/8/10 concert toms

I will post in the Gallery when I achieve the final set-up!!

Cheers

Holy cow! I did not know they made concert toms that big. Very cool set up, looks like a ton of fun. Now you got me thinking about putting my big kit together again.

Cool Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

Thanks gents!! Eventually, I want to take all the shells somewhere to get them professionally detailed to remove the any swirl marks, scuffing and hazing...

I need to switch out the head on the 20" concert tom because it sounds "dead"...It has an Emperor bass head on it instead of a regular tom head...I`m hoping that`s the cause since the shell is also out of round a little as well...

Overall, I`m very impressed with them...The bass drum is wide open with no muffling and it sounds as good as my 26`s...Like a cannon!!

I will post more pics as I add to the set...

Cheers

WOW ! ! !
That looks like it would be a blast to play.
I bet it would really look fantastic under the stage lights.
Thanks for sharing this. Makes me want to pull my mega set out and go at it again.
Michael
