Default New Ludwig Centenials

Hi guys I picked up my new Centenials with a 14x6.5 Supraphonic the other day and I love it so thought i'd share some pics with you. They aren't great pics but you get the idea.

20x20 12x8 16x14 14x6.5

Very exciting!

Love the natural maple finish! The Supra is a nice choice!

That 20x20 has quite a look to it! :-)

I agree, the 14x6.5 SupraPhonic is a timeless classic. It should serve you well for many years to come. The drums look really good, too. I also noticed how you've grafted a DW boom arm onto a Premier cymbal stand; I do the same thing with my Tama stands! Once I experienced the flexibility of the toothless tilter, I never went back to standard ones again.

Yeh the toothless tilter is brilliant compared to the the toothed premier ones. the DW boom came with the tom stand, but when I hit the crash the tom reverberates so i stuck it on my old premier stands which are really stable considering they're single braced. I've got another tama one as well not in the pic.

nice! i want that 6.5 snare lol (i have a '75 14x5 LM400),

i have never been too keen on deep deep so called 'square' sized kicks like that, and if im honest i havent played too many but... that one along with the whole kit looks like so much fun to play. jealous!
congrats man!

Thanks for the commets guys.
I wasn't keen on the 'square' sizes either until i got this kit. It's soooo punchy but sounds bigger at the same time

Lovely drums man. The 20x20 literally looks like a cannon. I'm very impressed with the look of it. I can't recall actually seeing a kick drum in this size before. Congrats and enjoy 'em.

Cheers guys. I've got used to the tuning now and with all new heads (ambassadors all round, soon to see what emperors sound like) i'm loving my kit, really clear and punchy with plenty of tone.

That's a nice little kit that you have there. I like the natural finish. I'd love to pick up one of those snares down the line someday.

Great choice. The Centennial line is a great buy. NA maple shells and custom configuration. Plus that's a great choice of snare (I own the same one). I read somewhere the the Supraphonic is the most recorded snare drum ever.

Wow that looks nice. Everything about this set up.

I've been looking at a set of Cents in Bonham sizes, and your review of this kit is making me seriously consider it!

24" a medium ride? is that what that is?
That would seem to fit perfectly with a set of centennials. im thinking about picking up a centennial kit, and might just have to rethink my cymbal setup for that. right now im using a k custom dark ride.

Thanks for all the comments everyone.
Fishbones, it's a 22" a crash ride. Funny you should mention it because i've been looking at rides (mine has a crack unfortunately), and i was looking at a k custom dark.

sorry man - i would sell it to you or make a trade but yesterday i just traded it in for a k custom dry ride. the dark just didnt have enough volume and it had a bit too much sustain for really articulate cymbal work
