    The Drumkit

    Most people will know of the reputation of Ludwig drums, famously used by Ringo Starr from a little known 60s Liverpudlian band, and later by John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. They sound fantastic, warm and responsive with a lovely dark tone from the thin three ply mahogany, poplar and maple shells with maple reinforcing hoops. Made before music became really amplified and loud, these drums were designed to sound good rather than generate loads of volume and as such they are wonderfully full and tonal, especially when recorded and mic’d up. Although obviously a 1960s kit, drummers continued to use this model though the 70s, and do so to this very day in fact... they just record so well. The drums are shallower than many modern drums which helps focus their sound and control their decay.

    This vintage 1966 Ludwig Hollywood kit is finished with a red champagne sparkle and consists of a 22” x 14” kick drum, 13” x 9” and 12” x 8” rack toms and a 16” x 16” floor tom. The snare used was a 1967 Ludwig 14” x 5". Cymbals used were Zildjian Constantinople 14” hi-hats, a 20” flat top ride, a 17” medium thin crash and an 18” K Custom Dark crash. THe kit comes played with sticks, brushes and hotrods and we have also included a shaker and tambourine.
