I believe John used Ludwig hardware except for the tom mount, which he swapped out for a Rogers swiv-o-matic.....at lest in the early days.

No idea about Jason, other than he used black powder coated hardware on the O2 Arena Vistalite kit.

Default Re: Jason Bonhams DW hardware&John Bonhams hardware

Most of the stuff I've seen have listed John's hardware as Ludwig Atlas stands (after the flat, and single braced light stands of the day), and a Rogers Hi Hat stand.

I've seen pics of him using an Atlas hat stand before the Rogers.
Apparently, that Rogers hat stand was preferred by a lot of drummers at the time.

Maple had a snare stand for the tom (just like Carmine's), then a Rogers mount (sometimes both).
A "new" reproduction of that mount is available (it's costly). It was pretty popular with other drummers too. Even my first kit had a version of that mount but the rest of it was Pearl copy!

The Vistalite had a rail consolete mount.

Stainless Steel had the Ludwig center L-rod mount, Ludwig Atlas cymbal stands, and the Rogers hat stand. There are pics of other Bonham owned kits with the Ludwig L-rod center mount.

Jason has DW 9000 series stands. The kit in his promo pics has the 9000 straight stands (except for the ride), not the straight/boom model. His pedals have been 5000's but he might use 9000 pedals, and the hat stand could be a 5000 or 9000.

Hope this helps.
