      I love my maple finish Zep kit. I have owned vintage Vistalite Bonham setup years ago, my new maple "pretties" sound and feel extremely close my old kit, like deja vu. I took a hiatus for several years. Recently wasted my time with a Pearl kit, but now I got the fire and desire like I was 22 again from these drums. I drove from Fairfax, Va. to Cincinnati for this kit because of the price and I was at first disappointed these were not the blue/olive badge drums I expected. I bought them anyway 'cause they were so pretty. Boy am I thrilled I got them now! They are powerful, beautiful, and a true inspiration to play on. I will NEVER again own anything except Zep Set Ludwig. My idol has always been John Bonham. When I am playing my heart out, I like to believe Bonzo is pleased. Simply put NO other drums come close in giving back what you put into them than Ludwig. Bonhams' Glory will NEVER be eclipsed. RIP Bonzo...

      I recieved my zep kit on new years eve 2008 and havent looked back, except for the people who hear it. It has a very loud and full sound perfect for Rock/heavy rock. keeping the 18'floor tom in tune with the other two toms can be a challenge yet it is achievable. This kit is like THUNDER and with the right cymbals you realy can not go wrong, and it looks great on stage. ROCK ON


      very good set of drums

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      I have owned this set for about 2 months now and I can honestly say that I still get excited when I get behind these drums just like the first day I bout them. In my opinion ludwig is the best, and if you want to actually feel the power of the drums then you need to buy a ludwig set. Starting with this one! they tune up nice and sound amazing. If you are thinking of buying these drums, look no further!


      The dream set!

      By sammy-GOj90

      I've been playing on this set for a couple weeks and just get better with time. I upgraded from an accent combo to these. I have never played on drums with the big shells before so I was worried about tuning. They tuned very easy to that big bonham sound, but made a few minor adjustments to sound like me also. I love the bass just so powerful. The hardware is very sturdy and you can trust having your rack tom on the mount. I got the naturals (no plastic wrap!!) and there gorgous. I would refer these drums to any serious drummer.


      Ludwig Accent Custom Zep Set

      I have owned this drumkit for about 3 hours now and this is the first time I have ever felt compelled to write a review for anything!! I have been playing Yamaha drums for the past 15 years and love them but they don't really offer anything in these sizes so I decided to purchase these. I got the one with the natural finish and I have to say it looks great for a $2,000 kit. The hardware is good and solid. Obviously, it's not up to the standard of top line hardware from the major companies but you're getting good value for money.I changed the heads to coated Emperors and couldn't believe how quickly these drums tuned up to that great Bonham style sound. After reading of some other reviewers problems with the toms and the snare I was a bit worried but, literally, within minutes, the room was shaking to some classic Bonzo grooves (done my way of course!)Overall, awesome value for money, great sounding and good looking drumkit. I recommend it to anyone wanting that classic big rock sound with a tight budget.

      This drum set was the backbone of ludwig back in the 70's with drummers like bonham, and is still ludwig's ace. Ludwig offers many different classic drum wrap for this set. Personally, my favorite is the white marine pearl, which I also own. I have to disagree with the comment below, which was written by Axel. You can play any type music on this set. This set is especially cut out for rock and jazz. The two floor toms can give you that big band jazz feel, or that thunderous john bonham feel. The deep drum sizes and the punchy rack tom make make this set very versatile.I do agree that the stock heads aren't good. Evans G2 clear heads are just too thin to spread out on a 16 and 18 inch drum. Myself, I put Remo Emperor Coated heads on my drums. The best thing with those heads is that you can tune them any way you want. Some people like a thud, and others like a ringing sound, like the old big band sets. Even John Bonham, drummer for LED ZEPPELIN, tuned his drums with a ring to it.This set is a very good drum set. It is worth buying. I was lucky when the price was a little cheaper than it is now. I would suggest this set to a beginner just starting out, but to a veteran drummer who appreciates rock and jazz. thank you.

      The working class Ludwig

      By Axel Dyberg

      from Trelleborg, Sweden

      For the quite refined price tag, this kit really delivers, equally in sound as in pure power. You get the classic Bonham set-up (Although the sizes are not 100% correct) with one rack tom and two floor toms, and of course, the massive 26 inch bass drum.The stock heads are not so good, but with a set of coated Emperors and some fine tuning you can really nail that large open sound that's projected by the large drum sizes. While it's of course not the classic maple kit, it's got a very good sound. Mic it up and mix around and you can get that great boomy sound, though it's not very versatile, needless to say you can't play jazz or country with this kit. It's intended for louder volumes, and it handles that well.Also, might I add, it's really great fun to play this kit. When playing live I really enjoy showing off, having played more solos than usual because it's just so fun to hear that great PUUMFF every time you squeeze the bass pedal, and the thunderous rolls the dual floor toms give. Although I'd suggest buying a Supra-Phonic snare drum with, the included snare works fine, but it's not really Bonham.Overall, with this price tag, it's really the working class Ludwig drums, and for the sound you can get out of these, I'd really suggest this kit if you want to try out larger drum sizes.


      Excellent Set!

      My school just purchased this drumset, and I was privileged to be the first one to play it through the schoolyear, and it overwhelmed me. I played it for pep band, and it filled the gym easily, and sounded so great without any micing whatsoever. This is a great kit. (and also, i used a double pedal on this kit, and it sounded great...i'm guessing it just depends on if you are picky with your double bass setup and action.)

      If you are looking for the true Bonham sound, I would suggest saving for the Maples. I had the kit in hopes that it would deliver like the maples with the right tuning and heads but I just couldnt get it to. The 13 tom is brutal. The snare isint good. The floor toms and bass are amazing though. And the hardware is sturdy and great. I hope this helps some people out there.
