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 14×26″ 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 16×18″ and 16×16″, just like you would expect. The 10×14″ rack tom
is suspended with a snare stand like Bonzo would have positioned, and the snare
drum is the Ludwig traditional LM402 – 6.5×14″ aluminum chrome plated Supra-Phonic
