Thanks for the compliments guys! They are 1983 6 ply maple with ChromeOWood wrap. The sizes are 16" x 26" Bass Drum, 14"x13" Rack Tom ,16" and 18" Floor Toms 14"x 8 Colliseum Snare. Cymbals are 15" Paiste Soundedge Hi Hats 24" Paiste Classic Ride, 20" Rude Crash/Ride and an 18" A zildjian Crash. I am the original owner However they were out of my posession for 10 years. I got them back in the spring of 08' they were filthy and I have been cleaning and restoring them ever since. I got a lot of inspiration and guidance from this board. Especially LVDC Some awesome looking stuff here. Love all the Bonham kits ! As for sound I changed all the heads to Emperor Batter and Ambassador resonants .And they sound pretty good. And yes they are quite loud.as you would expect. But not out of control.It makes me smile just to look at them and thats what it's all about isn't it?

Very classic looking kit, I'll bet they just thump. Couldn't help but notice the double-braced cymbal stand, are you considering finding another period piece to match? (Hat stand too?) To me, it would just take the kit from a 10 to an 11.

Jer thanks for the kind words. I actually have alot of late 70's Hercules stands however my original HighHat did not make it through the seperation. It had to be replaced This kit was out of my hands for 10 years stored in a friends damp cellar. The kit in it's original configuration was massive. It included two 26" kicks with 13" and 14" power toms 16" and 18" floor toms and about eight cymbals. Lack of space dictated I scale it down to a classic One Up Two Down set up. I nicknamed it my "Spirit Of Bonzo" kit. I installed the classic ludwig L arm cymbal holder and installed new coated white heads and 70's style logo for that vintage look. I got alot of Ideas from all the cool kits on this board and all the tech knowledge from guys like LudwigVonDrumCrazy.

I really like the finish on your drums what is it called?
Red scarlet fade. It was either that or ocean blue fade.

Love the 1-up, 2-down setup. Two big rumbling floor toms, comfortable cymbal placement and a classic look all in one.

Here are my Saturns. 12x9 rack tom, 16x16 and 18x16 floor toms, 24x18 kick. Big sizes for a big sound!

An hour after unpacking the kit for the first time:


From a little recording session last week:

Just picked up my new kit in my favorite configuration, 1 up 2 down. Mapex Mydentity with a 12x14 rack, 16x26 kick, 16x16 and 16x18 floor toms. To go with the kit I picked up a set of Paiste 2002s, 24 ride, 18 crash, 18 medium crash, 20 crash and 15 SE hats. I use a JoJo Mayer PB bass drum pedal and I'm using the Gibralter Stealth rack system to support all my cymbals, rack tom and snare. I find it's not too much rack for the configuration and keeps the rack tom in place no matter how hard I play.
