Default My new "to me" Ludwig John Bonham Green Sparkle Kit

Just picked these shells up from a guy. I have been looking for a while for a Green Sparkle kit and buying vintage hardware for when I did. I finally have a complete Bonham kit! Here is a album of my new set.


http://imgur.com/a/ugNBq. Hope you like them as much as I do!!

you really got the real deal too, rail consolette, bass mounted ride, ching ring, everything.
when I wrapped my kit in silver ( because of Bonham) I really wanted green but was shot down by everyone I mentioned it too.

Unfortunately, not with the Luddie 26x14. But here's the kit with a Gretsch 26x14.

The green sparkle kit is by far my favorite Bonham kit, with the thermogloss coming in second. Congrats on that extraordinary kit fuzzy!

I had a Ludwig Accent Zep kit and had to use the tom on the snare stand I never cared for the placement of the rack. I am so much happier with the rail mount, plus it just screams vintage Ludwig!

Thank you!! I wanted to have a little personal touch to Bonzos beauties, I made the dice toppers myself and the throne had to be mine when I saw it!!

Amazing! Really no other way to describe that set up. Somebody has paid attention to every detail to make it authentic. Just need a 38" Paiste gong to go behind it.

Thank you!! I feel pretty blessed to have scored this kit. I have made two "replica" kits from the Accent Zep sets never thinking I would come across these. I found a guy that had a matching set of the 1976 swivel feet and I got a pretty good deal on them! I thought they were a nice complement to the kit for sure!

That is a really REALLY cool kit!
Just saw Bonhams kit just like yours on display in Indianapolis at the rhythm discovery center. They also had Neil Pearts chrome Slingerlands and an early Beatles kit.
