John Bonham Super Classic Drum Head Pack
Up until 1973, John Bonham played Ludwig Super Classic wood shell drums during Led Zeppelin tours and in the studio. Even after he had moved over to the famous Amber Vistalite for gigs, he continued to use a wood shell kit in the studio.
From what we know, Bonham used to put Remo Emperor coated skins on the batter sides of his Toms, Bass Drum and Snare Drum when using Ludwig Super Classic wood shells. In recognition of this classic drummer’s set-up, we are offering our very own Remo custom head pack containing Remo Vintage Emperor coated drum heads for your Rack Tom, Floor Toms and Snare Drum, plus a Remo Emperor coated for your Bass Drum.
We would expect this deal to be of interest to the many Bonham fans out there who have chosen to replicate his set-up in some form and also for any drummers who may be in Led Zeppelin tribute bands. Obviously, we know not everybody can get the exact sizes in a Bonzo 1-up-2-down set-up and have seen this with some customers in Zep tribute acts. There’s not many old 26″ Ludwig Bass Drums knocking about you know…. However, it is known that during their first American tour between 1968-69, Bonham used a hired Ludwig kit featuring a 24″ Bass Drum and a 13″ Rack Tom. So if you’re in the ‘first US tour’ camp, then we have made sure your needs are fully covered!
So, to conclude, our John Bonham Super Classic drum head pack will enable you to skin the batter-side of your Bass Drum, Snare Drum, single Rack Tom and 2 Floor Toms.
