Looks sweet dude! How's that monster 26" kick working out for you? Like a freakin' cannon I bet! That whole setup with the P. Rudes just sceams power

Rock on!

It works! I have to muffle it in addition to the Aquarian SK. It's way too loud in the house BUT still plows through even with a pillow in there.

I just saw a replica Bonham kit in Bangkok Thailand, it was in a Ludwig store and the kit was Acrylic and colored orange. The cost was just something like Bht 100,000 or around USD 3,000

It was very interesting

Thanks man! Sorry the pic is so big. I tried to make it smaller but my photo program sucks. I can't figure it out. Anyway, glad you liked them.

Thanks, Buz
I've got the 28" Wuhan wind gong. It's the biggest wind gong I could find. Very reasonably priced too. I found it googling, I didn't find it through any of the main big name places like musician's friend. I took a chance and ordered through a smaller company, lots of them out there that carry it, just have to shop around.

Hiya,
My kit (shells only) cost me around € 2500 (Euros !). Maybe a little less than that... Keep in mind that the kit is Classic Maple series, so Accent should be a lot cheaper, respectively.
That's how much I paid in Belgium, but I don't know if they have different prices for the US or other countries though... ^^

Greets !

ya, i'm a huge fan of bonham though thats why i feel like i have to get a classic maple to get that great bonham sound. but , im also a big fan of drummers like Alex Van Halen and thats why i plan on adding on to my bonham set after i get it and adding another 26" bass and a 12" tom and a set of Roto Toms! :)

Yep. Not too hard to comprehend either. I'd like to add 'single pedal only' to the criteria as well.

Chaps my ass seeing some Axis double kick on a Bonham kit, ha ha ha

Exactly, double bass is alright if thats you're thing but I think double bass takes away from the Hi-Hat IMO I also think a early Bonham style kit would be 26,14,18,14 x 6.5.

I like 4-piece LOL, Bonham played a 4-piece on LZ I but with a 24" bd instead of a 26" that was LZ II when he added another floor-tom.

This was just the first album before he got his Ludwig endorsement with help from Carmine Appice the tom he used was a 13" x 9" then he went with a 15" x 12" with 2-26" bass drums until Jimmy Page complained he couldn't. hear nothing but Bass drums on stage so he back to only 1 bass drum from then on.
he went back to a 14" x 10" tom until the Stainless Steel kit in 1976 or 77? I think it was 1977 but not sure which year then he went back to the 15" x 12" tom.

I just picked up the maple reissue kit (with bags) for 1k. Probably sit on this until things turn around economically. I just had to jump on that deal.

You can get them on Ebay for like 6 bucks each.

Hi all you Bonham fans. I was lucky enough to see them 3 times, twice at city hall newcastle where I was approx 25 ft from stage in front row of the balcony, awesome. Got backstage as well, friendly guys. last time was at earls court, not so intimate, but good.

I saw a discussion about the Ludwig logo on bonzo's green sparkle where someone said they had the plotter/cutter file so I can cut the logo at bonham size for my drummer mate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

many thanks

Is the ad for the shell pack only? Or do you get the add ons (hardware, cymbals, hot chick) too?

I love this kit but the Black bass drum has to go. I don't know why Ludwig lets a drum leave the factory like that.

Black heads were all the rage in the 80's. Not too many guys wanted white heads. Then the whole retro thing became popular . Wait around long enough and old becomes new. I predict concert toms will be in fashion again! LOL Anyway I prefer the white heads too but too each his own.
