Yep! It's the best kit I have ever owned, they sound incredible. I'm really glad Ludwig is making really good drums again!

I really don't consider my kit, or most of the kits in this thread, to be "bonham kits" (except for the obvious ones).

But if all that's required in someone's mind for a kit to be a bonham kit is for it to be one up two down, then i suppose this thread is unnecessary.

I have a hard time considering anything other than a ludwig to be a bonham kit... but i feel like sort of a purist in that area.

Here is my set in a 1up 2down cenario.

Pork Pie kit
28x20 kick , 12x9 , 14x12 , 16x14 toms * I also have a 20x20 kick that I usually play ( most places are to small for the 28)




I just got this DW set and will probably start using this out more.
26x14 kick , 10x8 , 12x9 , 16x13 toms , 22x16 gong

Hey rjlee24 you have excellent taste in color,set up, and brand of drums! haha By the way I noticed the blue and green tag on your tom what year was your kit made? The kit appears to be in great condition, are they the 3 ply maple shells? Great kit!

Why do so many people think John Bonham invented this type of kit? The earliest I can think of anyone having this kind of thing was Gene Krupa in 1939. Bonham realized that those big band guys had it figured out on how to get a big sound. Other people were into the small bass with numerous concert tom kits with single headed drums. He comes out with an old school style kit and puts that big sound back into drumming. Of course I suppose people these days don't even know about guys like Krupa. Some people probably think in the beginning was Neil Peart too. I still remember the shock when I told someone that Louie Bellson, a jazz drummer, invented the double bass kit. That's why I like sites like this where people can learn about the art of drumming, at least a large part of it.

Hey pcmckay thanks!! you also have great taste..ha ha...my drums are re-issues (2007) I believe Ludwig makes their maples 6 ply now?...I was able to get the blue and olive badges on them as a bonus, just a cool added touch I was able to get..I've got a couple of sets this is my first Ludwig Classic Maple. I have a set of Tama Starclassics also which are great....but the Ludwigs are the baddest drums I've owned no doubt!!!!!

Default Re: 1 tom - 2 floors

i like that kind of set up too, so i use my 13" rack tom as a floor tom...

my set up is a little different now than in that picture though because i just started playing open handed matched grip instead of traditional as i did before...so now my snare and toms are angled a bit more towards me, my hi-hats are about as low as my snare, and my ride is on my left side...

Actually, before 1969, Bonham played a 22x14 and then a 24x14 kick. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bonham In 1968/69, Leppelin toured as "openning act" for Vanilla Fudge, and it was Carmine Appice's "big sizes" and hook-up with Ludwig that got Bonham in the drivers seat of the Ludwig Thermo Gloss Natural Maple kit.

And honestly, even though I drive a Ludwig 26, 15, 16, 18....it's because I like big drums and Ludwig kits. When I had my clear Vistalites in a 1 up, 2 down configuration, everyone (most) called it a Bonham kit. And my kicks were 22". Sometimes you just have to give in to the masses. So I know what you mean.

I just changed my Tama Superstar EFX Hyper Drives from the original 6 piece to this. Not quite "Bonham" sizes, but it works fine and is really comfortable.

Great thread, lots of nice outfits! I have tried several different set ups and have settled on 1 up 2 down. I have a 10" tom that I occasionally mount on the left side cymbal stand between the snare and 12". Day in and day out though I prefer this set up.
