Some Ludwig porn
OK. I finally got my player's zeppelin/rich kit dialed in after a strenuous concert weekend breaking them into live performance over three days. When I got them home, I set them back up in my practice room and this time set-up some flashes for some proper photography of the kit.
As you can see, the kit looks more vintage with the new Ludwig flat base cymbal stands, and I got smaller Yamaha single braced snare stands for the snare and tom. The only things that remain heavy on the kit are the hi-hat stand and the throne. I like solid thrones, and I want my hi-hats to stay in one place.
The last picture is what the kit looks like when I put it in "Sonor Safari" mode. Probably the way I'll play it most of the time. Do note the matching b/o badge Supra from the same era as the rest of the kit - that took some time to find without spending an arm and a leg!
