I was fortunate to snag a vintage Ludwig amber vistalite kit. B/O badges, rail and cymbal mount holder. I never thought I would like the sound of vistalites but being a big Bonham fan I wanted a set to add to my Ludwig collection. I enjoy the sound of these drums! Great big 26' bass drum that sounds like a cannon. I put a felt strip in the bass drum because when I first started playing them my wife said that the pictures in the upstairs living room were falling off the walls. I'm really enjoying the heck out of these. I know the hardware is not correct but I can only afford to invest so much. The drums were quite and investment!
