Re: Sorry Neil......Ringo and Paul has much more "feel" than you

Re: My Goal To Pursue: Put Together A Ron Tutt Ludwig Kit But...

It truly is important to me: It's been a thirty year dream to have a drum kit like this, and, I'm hopefully, going to finally realize this dream. I won't be taking them out and gigging with them...

Re: If budget weren't a problem, what drum set would you get?

If budget wasn't an issue, I would have Ludwig build me a dead-on replica blue sparkle, double-kick drum kit exactly like the one that Ronnie Tutt used from 1970-1974.

Oh....wait.....that's what...
