Default My Ludwigs came in today!!

Well after 10 long weeks of waiting the Zep set finally came in. Woo Hoo! Fresh out of the boxes and set up for the pics. I haven't tuned them up yet, but the looks alone blow me away. This thing is awesome just to sit behind. Unfortunately I won't have a chance to play them this weekend, but I will get them tuned up Sunday. I got them the way they come stock. Heavy clear heads on the toms, and bass batter, the snare came with the coated medium. The bass heads look like remo power stroke 3s, they have the damping ring around the edge, I don't know what Ludwig calls their version.

I didn't know that Ludwig made that kind of finish. It's great though. Very eye catching! But we need specs for drums/cymbals. But if my eyes serve me right its almost the exact same as Bonzo's right?

Great kit again, have fun pounding the paint off the walls!

Cheers..

Beautiful kit. Purple sparkle rocks. I run a P3 batter and ebony Ambassador with HOLZ port reso. on my 26x14 Luddy so I know exactly what your kick sounds like. Enter the land of the big boom.

Consolodated Freightways is just a trucking company. Conn Selmer is the company that owns Ludwig, kinda like GM owns Chevy, Pontiac and Buick.

Yes the supra is new, it was part of the Zep set shell pack.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Yes I love this set. Still can't stop staring at it. Still haven't had a chance to play it as a set yet, seating and tuning isn't finished.

Congrats on the Ludwigs, man they are sweet!

I'm a Ludwig man myself and your set is stunning. When I got both of my kits, I ended up taking off the stock heads that come with the kit because I didn't care for the sound of them, plus I use Evans heads. At the time when I bought mine they only came with the clear heavy (toms), clear power collar (kick) and the stock Ludwig front kick head. Now when you order a new kit from Ludwig, you can get silver dots (which would've been my choice if i had the option).

Anyways, best of luck with the kit...the first song you'll have to jam out to is "Good Times Bad Times" (and we'll need more cowbell too!).

Very sweet kit! I have the same kit but in green sparkle. Isn't that 26" bass drum awesome! Did your bass drum come with the power collar heads? I also have the cymbal arm on the bass drum just like yours, I think it is really comfortable. What I did with my cymbal arm is I put a memory lock on it. The actual arm is the same size as your floor tom legs. Get a memory lock for your floor tom legs and it helps support the cymbal arm and it keeps it from moving from side to side.

O man i dont know what to say. I love this kit. Love the set up, love the sizes, love the cymbals, love every inch of that picture

You have the whole bonham spew goin here...everything down the ching ring...i love it....just completley love it...now to complete the whole bonham set up u have is to move ure cowbell from your bass over behind your floor toms and get a vintage ludwig one. My school has the same model bonham used and its totaly vintage but we dont use it and it sits in the cabinet....i think im just going to take it because its so nice.

Not quite, I'll never own a 38" gong, or the tympanis. I love the sound of these big drums, and the 2002s. I love the classic look of the setup. Yes, I chose the Zep set and 2002s, but Bonzo I'm not. I may never be as good, but this is my dream set. I prefer to have my cowbell mounted on the bass hoop, for me it fits in that spot and is accessible and out of the way at the same time, if that makes sense.
