Pre-Owned Condition: This is an authentic 70s Ludwig Vistalite and features essentially all original components - on this note, the original front head is included but has a tear on the right side, it can easily be covered with clear tape (see pictures for details) but is worth noting if considering this kit. It also includes the 2 original stands which are essential to the kit and they're in very good condition.
This is one of the rarest kits we've had in store for a while and in the unlikely event that you'll ever see one of these kits for sale again, you'll certainly never find it at the price we're selling it for. Produced in the early 70s, this kit has a few scratches and scuffs but is in fantastic condition considering. It's a true Ludwig fan collectors piece and we 100% expect it to fly out the doors. It features single headed toms, which ensures the massive projection that you'd expect from a drum kit of this nature.
Vistalite drums were a line of acrylic drums produced by the Ludwig Drum company, introduced in 1972. The name Vistalite refers to the translucent plastic that the shells were made out of. Vistalite and acrylic offered a synthetic alternative to wood shells and were popularized by rock drummer John Bonham of Led Zeppelin.
