The Ludwig Amber Vista-Lite outfit is styled in a similar fashion to the Ludwig outfit as historically played by John Bonham from Led Zeppelin back in the early 1970's.
The Ludwig Amber Vista-Lite "Zep" Set Drums feature a 14x26" bass drum with vintage styled T-rods, vintage claws, curved retractable spurs, and gold sparkle inlays on the high gloss black finished maple hoops. The double floor tom set includes a 16x18" and 16x16", just like you would expect. The 10x14" rack tom is suspended with a snare stand like Bonzo would have positioned, and the snare drum is the Ludwig traditional LM402 - 6.5x14" aluminum chrome plated Supra-Phonic model.
The "Zep" Set can be ordered as a shell pack or with a full compliment of Ludwig Modular double brace hardware, including Ludwig's 900 Series snare stand, (2) straight cymbal stands, (1) boom cymbal stand, Pro-Float LM918HH Hi-Hat Stand and the LM815FPR Pro Foot Pedal. As an option, the L201 Speed King Pedal and or a matching Amber Vista-Lite 6.5x14" snare drum are also available
.All the heads are durable Heavy Clear for intense playing and a great see-thru appearance. Drums are also fitted with the vintage 70's blue & olive badges and 70's era large Classic Lugs.
The complete kit with hardware is model number L8264LM47 and has a USA retail price of $4,495. The shell pack is model number LM8264LX47, with a USA retail price of $3,565.
