Bonzo used these on tour in the USA in 1977, Knebworth 1979 and the last (sniff) Euro tour of 1980. This kit booms and pounds with massive volume, deep, tight and unapologetic. Check out boots of the 77 USA tour or those famous ITTOD drum only tapes and imagine that crushing tone in your hands and feet. Spotlights love these but man, get Anvil cases--these are meant to be played, but O Lord.. take good care of these.
I am lucky to own a vintage Bonham stainless steel set, but no cymbal mount or tom mount on the bass drum. These drums have the power and projection of vistalites, but more tone than the acrylic shells. There sound is not ideal for recording because it is so bright, but the drums are powerful, sensitive and have the best live sound on the market, with no comparison to any other brand or drum, or drum shell material. These stainless shells are the loudest, but also the most sensitive, material a drum can be made out of. I feel weird playing a smaller bass drum once I sat behind the 26" bass. Because of the drum heads surface area, with more air behind it, when you hit it with the bass pedal it feels soft and bouncy, increasing your speed and decreasing youre right legs fatigue. You NEED emperor coated batter and ambassador coated on the resonant side to get that bonham sound off this set. When I bought my vintage set, it came with evans g2 and g1 clears on it. The drums are louder, more resonant, and have more tone with the remo coateds than the evans clear heads on it. The only thing is that coated heads make these already bright drums sound brighter. If you really dont want coated heads on it, pinstripes or controlled sounds on the batter, and ambassador on the resonant side. Stick a felt strip on the resonant side of the bass drum, NO PILLOWS, for an awsome sound. Also, bonham used a wood beater on his bass drum.P.S. The real secret to Bonham's snare tuning was for his snare drum, he used a coated ambassador for the snare side, the same coated ambassador you would put on a tom for example. With a thicker head on the snare side you will need the 42 strand snares to cut through the thick head and get a good buzz going.No problems with this set, nothing should be changed with it. I didnt pay 5400$ for my set tho, that may be my only complaint.
I own the first of those great sets, i had it right after it was displayed in Frankfurt,and i absolutely love it. I own two kits made in the seventies, consisting of 26, 12x15, 16 and 18 floortoms, ive got an 18x20 floortom as well, but i tell you, its a great piece of work by Ron D. and the Ludwig-guys,it has a thundering sound and is easy to tune, im proud to have it, its the first NEW drumkit ill play!
