Sorry don't have a picture but your kit reminds me of my late 80's set except mine are Cherry Stain; 12x13, 13x14, 16x16, 16x18, 16x22 bass and a 6.5x14 Supra. All toms were rack mounted with the Modular hardware. After purchase in 1994 I added a 9x8 and 9x10. I later did change the mounting system to RIMS then ATLAS and added legs to the floor toms. Still have the Modular hardware in storage. The 16x18 floor tom has been converted to bass to be used in tiny areas for gigs. I use them for a practice kit now except for pieces depending on gigging space.Seems like a lot of people just don’t like these kind of drums.
I understand they are very heavy to carry around. These would’ve been very expensive to make with the amount of materials used. I never had a problem with the Ludwig modular hardware as it worked flawlessly for me and I actually like the look of it in terms of the Tom holders.
Pictured below is my original 1981 Ludwig. I used them for almost 30 years -gigs and in studio. They never let me down. Once I switched to coated ambassador heads they became wonderful sounding drums.
Usually tuned a step higher than my standard three ply vintage shells, they have a huge presence followed by a quick low boom but can also be played tastefully for softer sounds.
Anyway I just thought it would be fun to see some pictures of the old power Tom kits- let’s see what you’ve got!
Me too. I love the looks of deep toms and think they sound just a shade better than shallow ones. My toms: 9x10, 10x12 and 14x14, 16x16 floor toms.I don’t understand the apparent disdain for deep toms. I LOVE my kit. I have 1 tom....& I like it to be big. My sons are in a band now, and they can’t get over how small the toms are on their drummer’s kit, as they grow up with mine in the house.
Hey bud this is my beast mind you this is only half for now its missing 7 shells the 24 inch bass drum and 6 toms im not to sure but I think I will just be missing the 16in tom and snare to make fully complete I would definitely love to talk to an expert on the kit for sure View attachment 483773
