Here's a Kit I picked up last June that I didn't start reconditioning until late Sept. and worked it here & there along with other projects until I finished it up a little over a week ago. I sure am glad to get this one done and all those parts out of the way...........

1971 Oyster Blue Pearl Hollywood or Big Beat Outfit, it all depended on what Stands came with it originally.
12, 13, 16 & 22 clear interior 3-ply Maple / Poplar / Maple Shells with Maple re-rings.........

Beautiful job! I like that wrap a lot. Is that what is referred to as "bowling ball"--i.e. 70's version of Blue Oyster?

Man, I never get tired of looking at Ludwig kits!!

Lots of great stuff so far!
I'm a real sucker for Chrome-O-Wood and Natural maple.....

And one day, I'll get a Sabian 24" china like Bermudas!

Here's a couple pics of my Ludwig stuff in different configs.

2007 Classic Maple Red Sparkle:

This is the most recent set-up.

20x26" kick
6.5 Black Beauty (tube lugs, straight hoops, Millenium strainer)
6.5 Red Sparkle Classic maple snare...soon to be a 12x14 2nd hat side ft.
9x13 rack
2-14x16 ft (1 Left, 1 Right side)
16x18 ft

Sabian cymbals:
15" AA sizzle hats
10" Paragon top, old Zildjian EFX1 bottom "mini-hats".
Of course, the most expensive splash they had was the one that sounded best to make the "hats"...
2-19" crashes (Med. & Med. Thin)
24" AA med. ride w/3 rivets
20" Vault crash
20" AA Orchestral Suspended with a rivet chain
21" AA med Thin, with rivet chain, under a...
21" AAX chinese w/rivets



how the china under the 21" crash is boomed in...



Opening for The (new) Cars. Same kit used opening for Toto.
2-21" AAX chinese w/rivets, & 8" splash




Sable Black kit.

Same sizes as above, minus the side snare.



Here's how the double chinas were boomed in. Used on both kits.



With a 10x13 rack, 13X15 (hat side) FT



With "the Gong" :-)

15" AA sizzle hats
22" HH Jazz ride
21" AA Med. thin
28" Wuhan Wind Gong
Side snare: 5" World Max Black Dawg
13x15 hat side ft behind side snare.



In the studio...20x26" kick and a 24" ride!



Alex Van Halen recommended this snare to me.
It's signed on the inside by Bun E. Carlos




The BB with Imperial Lugs is a Bronze shell from '89.



Custom job because of the lugs, and only 10 lugs on this 8"
God...what a PAIN it was to get this thing done, but worth it in the end.
It sounds great.



Not a 'real' Black Beauty, but still pretty darn nice.



That's enough for now :-)

Post more Ludwig people!

Hi Karl,

You have some really awesome drums. Love em! Post some sound clips or a link to your playing one of these days. You strike me as a guy who's been around the block a few times.

Take care.

Thanks for the nice words on my kit.

Heres' a clip of me in an Ace Frehley Tribute band.
It's from a couple years ago, with the Sable Black kit.
We did it 2 years in a row for that place because it went over so well...and we got money :-P!
The first few seconds is making fun of another Kiss tune, but the clip is the song Parasite.
The drums are un-mic'd.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=nYYDagKcUJ8

I play in a group called Class Three Overbite.

I just do the live stuff, but the music has been pretty well recieved.

There's a MySpace Page, and stuff online about the group if you google it.
The 2 writers are Mike Elgert and Brad Jendza, & they both have pages/links, and I played in both those live bands too.

Last year CTO opened for Toto, The (new) Cars(on my birthday!), and did an Uncle Cracker show here in Detroit.

We also did a slot on the main stage at this huge July 4th festival in Mt. Clemens where I live.

There were other shows, but those were the coolest.

Not re-inventing the musical wheel, but it's real fun stuff to play...but there's no stick twirls in these clips dang it!

We went over real well with the TOTO crowd, and Simon dug us, and really loved the sound of my drums--especially the bass drum.




We went over real good with The Cars too, and they gave us a Pro shot DVD, but they had to sign a thing that we can't put any of it in the net, or use it for promotion.

Here's a couple clips from the Uncle Cracker show from YouTube.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=vQYr6Tid0-U

This has some fooling around before the Cars show.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=kgzYrx...eature=related

There's other stuff out there too.

here's some pics from a recent show we did with our bud's The Muggs.
They were on that "Americas next great band" show.

http://www.2snapsup.com/pages/bandsq13/b13080131cto/

Thanks for the nice words again!

Hope you guy's don't think it sucks! :)

Cool stuff Karl!

It must have been awesome to play on a show with Simmon and the boys. Toto was truly blessed to have two of the greatest drummers to ever live. Great band.

You sounded good. Looks like you guys had a good time.

Take care.

Thanks guys!

tommapex, that SS looks great!
How is that wood side stick? They seem kinda cool.

zambizzi, yes, you should!

Steady Freddy, yeah Simon was really a cool guy, as were the rest of the band.
They were very complimentary, and were asking if we got everything we needed, so that was cool of them.

Simon even came off the bus to talk to me.

He said he sent his tech to look for me to bring me back behind the kit for their show, but the way they have you load out at that venue makes you have to go back in through the front.
The drum tech saw me after words and said (& the guitar tech too) "Dude, Simon sent me to look for you!"

So I wasn't able to watch him from the back, but, from the front was pretty dang cool!
He kept saying "Next Time".

He came up from his downstairs dressing room, because he heard the bass drum, and was giving me the "thumbs up".

He watched the first and most of the second tune (I know taking time out from his warm-up, because there was only about 20 minutes or so between the time we were done, and when Toto went on).

He was very complimentary and said he LOVED the sound of my bass drum, "Just F*ing great" were his words, shaking my hand, and then asking me how I muffle/tune it, and stuff.

That was pretty cool, HE'S asking me...pretty wow!

Here's a couple pics of Simons kit I took...even though it's a Ludwig thread....





My kit looked kinda small next to his haha!!

Thanks! Can you tell that Mitch Mitchell partly inspired that kit when I ordered it 10 years ago? :-)

They've been in one closet or another for the past five years as I've been bouncing around town here, not really having much chance to play because of roommates, neighbors, and whatnot... also slightly frustrated with the music scene here.

The floor toms are both 16x16's, the other tom is a 9x13, the bass is 16x22, and the snare is a 5x14. The finish on the bass and toms (or the wood itself) has actually aged over the past decade. They were a lot "whiter" when new.

If I were to do it again, I'd get a 14x14 in there instead of one of the 16x16's... and probably a smaller bass drum either in diameter or depth. I've always loved the two on the floor config. Maybe a blue or green lacquer finish.

Your kit is pretty sweet too!

Never was a big fan of Ludwig, but I really like these.

This isn't my kit, either. I found it on eBay.

I think the only thing about those that are Ludwig are the reso heads on the kick drums...they don't look like Ludwigs otherwise, at all.

Here's a shot of a casual little gig we did at Doheny State Park for the late, legendary longboard maker Bill Holden. These drums are so cool!

Nice looking kit and set up. Is this the first time you have posted a picture of your Ludwig kit? What are the sizes?

I posted them when I did my little restoration project, here's the link to it. Those pics have a different bass drum reso, but I like the way the bass drum sounds now, with the full reso head. Plus I picked up the period correct size Ludwig logo.

Yeah...Ludwig didn't make those drums. I'm guessing some hobbyist or custom shop did and somehow, someone believed they were Ludwigs...maybe due to the reso head on that one kick drum.

Is that someone me?


But I agree, Ludwig doesn't use that kind of tom mountings, or make 20x27 bass drums! (I think...)

Actually, it looks like someone robbed an Accent kit of its hardware and put it on some Kellers....

I have the re-issue of the Vistalite John Bonham kit.

Signature Peart Sabian set (the 3 piece) and the rest are Paiste (also the signature series; i think they call it)

I use Emliminator double bass pedals.

Also have an original clear vistalite kit bought from a friend. I sent it to the DrumPad, and had them clean it up and put the missing pieces on it.

I measured it at 123 decibels--very very loud. My ride will ring out for a week if I don't grab it.

Keith Moon had a clear one, without resonant head on that new drum video "Classic rock drum solos" with Carmine Appice--best drum solo video ever!

look for the goldfish in the low tom.

And Karen Carpenter had a blue one, also without resonant heads--very underrated drummer, if you can find her playing "Dancing in the streets" and singing (as on the Crapenters doc) you'll see some very cool jazz drumming.

Birch. I also have a 10" tom that I'm not currently using. I kinda feel bad about that, for no really explainable reason.

Also, I'm looking for a single tom holder for the bass drum.

Nice. I have a birch ludwig set my self. Just a 3 pc. 16x20, 14x14 , 8x10.

I just bought the kit a few months ago and had to send back both toms. The floor tom was out of round and the bearing edges were crap in the rack tom. I should be getting them back new one from them any day now...hopefully.

What do are using on your bass drum batter side? PS3 clear?

I tried the emad but I didnt like it. Right now im back to the stock head and a pillow inside and EQ3 ported reso head

Add an 8" x 12" and you have my kit.

The bass batter is a clear PS3. I really prefer coated, but I had the clear laying around. Also, the felt on the reso single ply works great for me.

I gave the champagne kit to my brother once I got the birch luddies. He didn't have a set and I dont have room for 2 kits.

I noticed you have an acrolite like me as well. Mine is in galaxy black.

I might eventually order a bitch luddy snare to go with the kit but i think i'll get it in a different finish..maybe piano black. For some reason, I prefer not to have a matching snare color/finish with a kit.
