Jeff, I just feel square with the world behind 2 kicks. With one kick, either you or the drum is turned and not facing the audience straight on. Just a personal thing.... and I do like the look better as well.

This is my 70's sky blue pearl Ludwig kit 13"14" 16" 22" with Supra
and all the original hardware
clear interiors the supra has some usual flaking
But the drums are super clean and the sky blue pearl has zero fade

My older brother had these same sky blue pearl drums
He was a working drummer on weekends

I used to run home from school, set up the kit,
bang away to some Deep Purple
then break the kit back down, and re-stack them as he left them
all before he, or my folks came home from work.

My thanks to my friend richm for not only parting with these beauties
But for giving me one hell of a sweet deal as well Thanks buddy

side note The head is from a used kit I bought
I needed to throw something on
so that my seller could take his cheap trick head back home with him :cool:

Added a few more odds and ends since last time. Plus reposting, since Imagesh#@! locked my pictures of the collector grade 1964 Ludwig Downbeat in Black Diamond Pearl pictured with modern hardware, but I have ALL of its Original Hardware and an extra matching 1967 8x12 tom in back (behind high hat).

Snares from back to front:

1978 LM405 Acrolite w/10 original Imperial Lugs 6.5 x 14
2002 LM303 Brass 5.5 x 14
2011 LW6514JK Black Nickel over Brass 6.5 x 14
1964 LM400 Supraphonic Chrome over Ludalloy 5 x 14
1959 LM470 Auditorium 3ply Mahogany w/NOB Hardware 6.5 x 14
1964 LM404 Acrolite 5 x 14

and a 1973 3ply Timpani tom with original paper label thrown in for giggles
