Behold.....

And they're done and ready!

Ludwig maple 6-ply from the late 70s. 16x26 bass drum, 9x13 rack tom, 16x16 and 16x18 floor toms. The snare (for now) is a Tama Rockstar 6.5x14. My cymbals are: 17" hats, 18" thin crash, 24" K Light Ride, and 20" K Custom Dark ride (as an explosive crash and second ride if necessary).

All the chrome was polished up, new heads all around. My hardware is Pearl with Tama pedals - although I do need a stand for my rack tome that will allow me to raise it a little higher.

This is a player's kit - but it sounds pretty good. Thanks to Harry Conway for the drums - I hope he likes what I did to them!

Enjoy!

Suhweeet! Looks great and should be real fun to play.

Looking good Bo, I'm sure that 26" bass drum sounds massive.

Gorgeous ! That is my ideal/dream set up. You did a beautiful job!

There's a whole lotta love that went into your restoration project Bo :)

It looks absolutely glorious, we just need to hear it now, what about a bit of Good times, Bad times in a video on YT.

Bo, Lookin gooood! I must say at first that I didn't want to remark on the rims when you first painted them. I will say that they look much nicer than I thought they would. Excellent job and really nice work restoring them. Are you having trouble getting the sound that you want or are you just having trouble getting used to the new sound? I would imagine a little bit of both. Those are a pretty big jump in sizes from what you are used to and it always takes time getting things tuned just the way we want them. Good luck with them and when you can post some sound clips for us. John

Ha, yes, but will the kit self destruct in the next 5 seconds? I doubt it, Bo ain't exactly a slammer, but you never know, these could release the inner brute! Man or mouse? Only time will tell ;) ;) ;)

Seriously Bo, nice job. As for the bass drum hoops, I think they work well. A bit of dark is quite common with blondes anyhow. Matching collar & cuffs are rare these days ;)

So nice. Cant wait to hear you bash a little (you will have to roughen your technique up a little).

Looks like a fun project. Nice work.

Great looking kit, excellent job. Love the look of a single tom in a snare basket. In case you find the basket chokes the tom a little you may want to look into a Flex Frame For my taste on my kit the tom was a bit choked by the basket, the Flex Frame opened the sound up. Again, may not be an issue for you but just in case. Congratulations and enjoy!!

Only one word to describe that set...BOOM.

Re: Behold.....
 
What a classy kit, if that doesn't give you a massive sound I don't know what will!

OrangeAgent27 01-06-2013 05:43 PM

Pretty cool! I hope you enjoy it!

I agree this kit looks powerful.
Ya wanna have a fat sound? Look no further. ;-)

Bo Eder 01-06-2013 06:36 PM

Re: Behold.....
 
Well, now that I have it set-up for photos, the reality will begin when I start to play it. Where my snare and floor toms usually fall on my other kits, they will be under the height of the bass drum and cause me to push the rack tom farther out to my right. But I'll try it later this afternoon. I think its true: when I sit down behind the kit, I won't be seen ;)

And with you going the other way regarding drum size people will say they see too much of you ;)

Amazing, simply awesome. I don't even want it for myself it's so awesome, I don't deserve it.

Play that thing like it was your last time.

There's no winning that one Bo. Once you crank up the vibe, nobody cares :)

You've done a really nice job. Those look great. Can't wait to hear 'em!

Looks real nice Matt. If I ever need a place to stay could I rent your bass drum?

Hahaha! It is rather large. But I think there's no arguing the point that there's enough bottom end now ;)

Nice job! I would really like to hear them. Peace and goodwill.

The video is coming slowly. I do need to get these things really in tune. Right now they're being a little finicky. Once I get them dialed in, I'll get a video up. I've heard so many bad YouTube videos that I want to make a great sounding one so it can be properly judged ;)

Could you please set them up right handed and shoot pics again for all us dyslexIcs?

Take your time, make sure you get that part right, its going to be Nick Becker time again.

Doesn't everybody play left handed? And who's Nick Becker?

Bo if you and I were standing behind that kick drum all folks would see would be the tops of our heads

.....kits looks awesome brother

larryz 01-06-2013 09:56 PM

Re: Behold.....
 
Awesome. Though this ain't just a player's kit. I'd be a little kinder. More like a work of art. The be all end all. Those are beauties. Every drummer should own a Ludwig 60's-70s kit. It should be mandatory international law.

You probably understand how I feel having these set up at home, and being stuck here at work until 5PM :(

Those look really great Bo, and nice job restoring them.
I look forward to hearing the video and eventually - a full gig review!

I would probably have quit my job or at least not complete the assembly knowing that it would ruin my work day..

They look fantastic! Great job.

Can I ask what kind of polish you used and if you would recommend it?
