Default Some Ludwig blue/olive oyster porn ;)

Had some quiet time on my day off. After I did a bit of practicing and installing a new front reso head on my new Ludwig kit, I thought I'd experiment with a photography shallow depth of field shoot of the kit. I guess you could say I'm really pushing this color since its new. Many people who've seen it say its pretty striking. I hope my playing is doing it justice ;)

Enjoy!

Great shots. Kit's looking snazzy! You should shoot for the Ludwig catalogs.

I love the badges and the photos are quite good. I'm not crazy about the color scheme, but it is still a sweet rig. To my eye the streaked patterns like this take away from the cool geometric shapes of the drums....

Ludwigs in solid colors or the bicentennial look are what catch my eye..

So are you saying Ringo's black oyster didn't look good? This finish is another interpretation of the oyster motif. Good thing I didn't do psychedelic red or citrus mod, eh?

I tried solid colors, natural woods, colored and uncolored vistalites, white marine pearl. I'm gonna find a Nehru jacket to go with this new finish ;)

I once had a white cortex mid-70s kit. I wish I would have put it on a lathe and thrown up on it, too! :P

Nah, seriously, the more I see pics of this kit, the more GASsy I'm getting. Congrats! When are we going to see a video?

Oh, no, not really...but it's interesting you would point that out because I never could "wrap" my head around the aesthetic of the Ringo kit...of course, it's very subjective and my opinion is really worth nothing except to me.

I love the pics and I've been back looking at them several times...I have to admit it's growing on me, but to my eye it takes away from my enjoyment of the shapes and mechanics of the drums...and I wanted a ludwig keystone but that mint green and multicolor smear mix finish give me a hard time....and I have an orange sparkle kit already.

Just an opinion man....

A lovely kit but that finish looks like camouflage to me.
No offence to anyone or anything intended.

Some people love Oyster finishes, some people don't. Some people love Sparkle finishes, some people don't. Some people like Mod finishes, some people don't. If you love that finish Bo, that's all that counts. Me, I love my White Cortex drums, some people don't. ;-p

I think your kit looks cool. What I would love to see on the bass drum is T-handles. Some people like them, some people don't. ;-)

I might do the t-handles still. It's the only thing the kit didn't have when I pulled the trigger. It's everything else I wanted, that's for sure. When I find a spare $100 lying around I'll get them.

Great pictures Bo, & the finish is growing on me. I think the quality of your pictures take me a step closer to how they look in real life :)

I dig the color scheme. It's different but not too outlandish (like the mod wraps). It's not my first choice for a kit (though top 3 or so from Ludwig), but I am seriously considering a snare.

It definitely wouldn't be my first pick. But the photos look good, and the more you look at it, the less outlandish the finish seems.

I take no offense. I'm cool with all opinions. There are certainly things I don't like that are only important to me too. My very first kit was a gold sparkle Slingerland, and then I went solid black and maybe that cured me of solids and sparkles back then (we're talking pre-1978) because when I revisited solid black, that kit ended up with my little nephew at my moms house. And I didn't re-visit any kind of sparkle although I thought I wanted to. I thought I'd like a natural wood to grow old with but it bored me, and under colored stage lighting all kinds of weird hues happen.

I just like where I'm at right now - and I can always try something new down the road (as I've been doing now for the last couple of years).

+1 on the Indeed, why not?
Pretty sweet kit! This is one of those "the finish looks better in person" like a couple others, but your pics show it very nicely. They have one at the shop and it's striking, and eye catching.

I would be the same way with a Natural Maple kit. I always liked them as a kid, but, I know I'd get tired of it.
I just got my Solid Black kit spruced up, and I love how it looks and sounds, but if I sold a kit to get a different one, it would be the one to go.
I wouldn't sell the Black Glass, or the Red Sparkle. Those look great everywhere, and under all different types of lighting.

Even though it's a new kit, for some strange reason the pictures in this thread really hit the 'nostalgia button' for me.

I have a nagging feeling I should get some type of Ludwig kit.

See? The same thing happened to me. I didn't want a traditional white marine pearl, but this has that vibe with colors - so its old and new at the same time. I think the traditional sizes of 9x13, 16x16, and 14x24 point to vintage, but the color is new enough to be 'new'.

Not in the catalog is a set that looks like the blue/olive oyster, but it's predominantly with red and black streaks (coral oyster?). They had that kit at Pro Drum - very cool. But in a world where red is an extremely popular drum color, I avoided it.
