    Default 1970ís Ludwig Super Classic Jellybean Kit

    I bought each drum as an orphan drum from Revival Drum Shop in Portland on seperate occasions until I had a whole kit. Theyíre all early 70ís pointy blue/olive badge Ludwig Super Classic Maple drums. 22x14, 12x8 and 16x16. Iím running coated Remo Emperors over clear Ambassadors on the toms and a clear Evans EQ4 over a smooth white Aquarian Force II on the kick plus a felt strip on the reso. It sounds almost perfect with zero muffling. Also on the kit is my 14x7 A&F Drum Company ďRevivalĒ Raw Brass 6-lug snare drum with wood hoops that have matching patina inlays. Itís the only not vintage snare in my collection and it is truly a work of art and a beast of a snare. The cymbals are a set of Cymbal & Gong Janavar Prototypes 15Ē hats, 20Ē and 22Ē multis. I keep this kit as a house kit at the recording studio that Iím set up in.

    Love it, man. I'm sure it sounds great, and I've not heard a bad cymbal from C&G yet.

    How do the metal hoops sound on the kick?
    "Why is that mirror sneezing?"



    "Ah, look, it's just an old, creaky mirror, y'know, sometimes it sounds a little like it's sneezing, or coughing, or talking softly."

    Yeah, Iím loving their cymbals too. Iím really lucky that Revival Drum Shop keeps a healthy stock of them so I can try them out.

    It would be quite interesting to compare the kick with wood vs metal hoops, especially recording each one so it would be easy to A/B. I bought the kick like that from Revival for next to nothing. They acquired it without hoops, and the only ones they had lying around were those metal ones so they slapped them on. Iíve loved how the kick sounds since I played it in the store, so Iím not inclined to spend money on wood hoops at the moment. Iím guessing they wouldnít have nearly as much of an effect on the overall sound as a change of heads or say a different kick beater would.
