This Ludwig Vistalite 3 Piece Kit is in excellent condition. Drums show little to no signs of wear or accidental damage, excepting only for marks on the batter heads.
If you're on this page, you likely know what this is. For those unaware, the Ludwig Vistalite drum shell defined the look and sound of 1970s and '80s contemporary music and hard rock. Known for their long sustain and thunderous presence in a mix, Vistalites have been seen on stages - with and without resonant heads (remember, kids, we're in the '70s) - by such artists as [perhaps most famously] John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, and - as far as drummers go - the incredibly unsung Karen Carpenter.
Sizes and current head outfits are as follows:
Rack tom: 9"x13", Remo Pinstripe batter, stock resonant
Floor tom: 16"x16", Remo Pinstripe batter, Remo Ambassador resonant
Kick: 14"x24", Remo Powerstroke 3 batter, stock resonant
This Vistalite kit's previous owner has also supplied a DW CP9399 proprietary rack tom stand, and a set of gig bags for each drum.
