Cool Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

CTMichaelV...Break out that kit!! Let`s see pics of it!!

Jeff...Get your set out...They are alot of fun and make you step out of your comfort zone...i.e. try out new fills, etc.

drumfx...I have played it standing up actually...I just use the 24" concert tom as the bass drum...LOL!!

Gary...I thought of putting pinstripes on them, but, opted for clear Emperors for batters and clear Ambs for resos...

Brian...Thanks for the kind words!! I always value your opinion...

Eventually, I would like to add a 22" bass drum to make it a double bass set...

Cheers

You're going to need an Uber car to get from one side of the kit to the other!

That thing is awesome! It's a steel monster big enough to kick a$$ on a Transformer! They must sound thunderous. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Default Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

When I was a freshman in high school (1976-77) I played a set of Ludwig "timp-toms" in the marching band. The sizes were 20",22", and 24". In one of your pics, I can see a clip-type mounting bracket on one of the big toms, just like the clips on the ones I played.Is it possible that these are the stainless steel version of them? Very cool...

Unbelievable setup. Every Ludwig concert tom from 6" to 24"!
And of course you have to go for the double-bass. Why try to save floor space at this point?

So what's left to add? Maybe four snares... 5x14, 6.5x14, 8x14 and a 12x14?

Keep the pics coming. I'd love to see you set that up in a catalog-style photo.

Mike

Cool Re: 70`s Ludwig Stainless Monster Set

Thanks for the comments, guys!!

The 6" was the hardest tom to get...A couple of Forum members sent me leads for a few of the toms...I appreciate their time keeping an eye out for me!!

As for the snare, the Acro sounds great with the set, but, I`m thinking I need something with a little more "punch" I have thought about a S/S marching snare, but, the ones I have seen they just want too much money for...

What size/type of snare do you guys think I should get for the set?

Cheers
