In regard to Buddy's kit....was it his last Ludwig set or the set of Radio Kings he was using toward the end? I think Armand had both for a while....

Last time I was there they had Buddy's last Slingerland set from the 70's. I was'nt aware that they had the radio king set that was refurbished by Joe MacSweeny. I have'nt been there in almost 10 years either. They did have a remo set that was Louie Bellsons. That was cool too.

Hmm, well I could be mistaken on which kit it was. They had a huge display of Buddy by the 'drummer's lounge'. On the wall was the quote of Armand Zildjian saying "I've got your drums, Buddy" and Buddy answered with "Zildj. take care of them would you?" Then he died the next day.

I have a picture of them on my site, if I get a chance I might be able to post it on here, and everyone can tell which kit it was! It was great to sit behind them, that's for sure.
