Some very nice drums in here!

Here's my old set of Vistalites, they are from the late 70s judging by the serial numbers. I've been working on 'em for a few weeks now, just finished re-cutting the bearing edges on all of the shells yesterday.

22"x13", 13"x9", 16"x16"
with an Acrolite snare, blue & olive badge. According to the serial number I'd say it's most likely early 80s

Bass drum doesn't have the front hoop attached at the moment since I don't have the claws for it yet.

There is no way that you can own a Ludwig kit and not love it!

I thought about this statement for a while before I posted it.
I concluded that it is true based on my personal experience.

Sorry - I forgot to post my kit here too ;)

Ludwig Classic maples 6-ply with 6.5x14 Supraphonic - all built between 1978-80 (not really sure of exactly when, but these were either late 70s or early 80s)

16x26
9x13
16x16
16x18

This is the first time I've been using the 26" bass drum exclusively for everything lately and it's been working out really well. I can dance on it and get enough sound, and when I slam it, it can shake the stage ;) Love it!

Shaking the stage=a very good thing

At least to this old-timer.

Cool.

On the job with my latest, a Club Date Jazzette kit (18/12/14 & 5x14 snare) in Olive Sparkle, which is more like an Emerald Glass Glitter in person, very classy.
