I am afraid that you might need to get some bigger drums! Wow, that must be fun to play. In my case, I might not be able to reach that rack tom though. Very nice.

Those 6-ply maple shells are some of the best sounding and very resonant drums that Ludwig ever made. That kit must be a ton of fun to play. I owned a 3-ply maple w/re-rings kit in black cortex and I loved the sound of them. I gigged that kit hard for ten years, cortex is indestructable! It looked as good after 10 years as it did the day I bought it.

Enjoy your drums... very cool kit. Love the 402.

John

PS - Put a head, hoop and tension rods back on the bass drum. Cut out the center of the head to open the drum up again, but keep a head and hoop on the drum. It'll eventually go out of round if you leave it open (no head or hoop,) like that long enough.

Too many great drums to list here!

Thanks for all the compliments!

@Purdie - I am working on getting parts to complete the kick - ts & claws, hoop and head.

I bought the 18" from one seller on CL and the 15", 20" and 26" from another on CL.

They are all b/o badges and fairly close in numbers.

The 26" is how I got it except that I removed a MIJ tom bracket. I also removed a Premier tom mount from the 15".

The 18" and 20" are void of any extra holes... and are thunderous! =)

Just got a 26" hoop (w silver sparkle inlay) on FeeBay for $12.99 plus shipping - $29.60 total!

I will need to sand it, tape off the inlay and repaint it but I've done that before.

So he's a pic of it using the 14, 16, 18, 20, 26.
