Default Ludwig Vistalite - Bonham Reissue in Amber

Hi,

I know its not vintage, but I have a Ludwig Vistalite "Zep Set" for sale. This is the John Bonham amber reissue kit with sizes 26-18-16-14 & the 6.5x14 LM 402 Supraphonic snare. This kit was made in 2009 - Ludwig's 100th anniversary year and I have been the sole owner. Kit is in excellent condition; there are no scratches on these drums and they live in cases. I just put new Remo Controlled Sound (black dot) heads on bass and toms. Included in the sale are a Ludwig snare stand for the 14" tom, a vintage (late 70's) Ludwig Hercules snare stand (for the supraphonic), a Ludwig speed king pedal and drum cases. The bass drum case is a Sk8 hard shell case. These drums sound huge and project like crazy. It is a beautiful kit and really fun to play. I am selling because I have a few vintage wood kits and I just play those a lot more. The Bonzo kit is too awesome to sit in cases in a closet. It should be played and gigged!

I'm asking $1800 + shipping for the drums, cases, the two snare stands, and the speed king pedal. The cymbals and cymbal stands pictured are not for sale. Just for comparison, this kit costs ~$3300 brand new for the five drums and one snare stand.

Thanks,
James
