Ludwig Vistalite John Bonham Zep Set Shell Pack with Snare Drum - Amber

A Reproduction of Bonham's Iconic Kit

The Ludwig Zep Set 5-piece shell pack is a re-creation of John Bonham's legendary acrylic set. There is no question that Bonham helped write the book for hard-hitting rock 'n' roll stage presence and drumming. These acrylic shells and LM402 Supraphonic snare give you those same looks and sounds. In addition to Bonzo, Ludwig Drums has a very proud artist roster that includes Ringo Starr, Roger Taylor, Dave Lombardo, and many more. The Zep Set 5-piece shell pack delivers these players' iconic sounds and nails that Bonham thunder.

Ludwig Zep Set Acrylic 5-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Construction and sound
  • "When the Levee Breaks"
  • The Ludwig legacy
Construction and sound

The Zep Set shell pack is made from an amber acrylic that matches Bonham's kit from Led Zeppelin's film The Song Remains the Same. Ludwig's Vistalite acrylic is famous for its huge attack and attention-grabbing looks. These drums are great for hard rock and metal due to their loud and present tone. The acrylic is very durable to avoid frustrating shell cracks. And you also get the Ludwig Supraphonic snare.

"When the Levee Breaks"

Not many drummers can claim as many groundbreaking rock 'n' roll performances as Led Zeppelin's John Bonham. He single-handedly changed what rock drumming looked and sounded like. From his performances in The Song Remains the Same to the intro of "When the Levee Breaks" and the drum solo in "Moby Dick," Bonham's legacy is forever cemented in drum history. And you can thank a good part of his sound to the Ludwig drums he chose to play. Now you can grab some of that presence with this Zep Set 5-piece shell pack.

The Ludwig legacy

Since 1909, Ludwig drums have had one of the proudest legacies in percussion, and they're a favorite of Sweetwater drummers for their sometimes warm, sometimes massive sound. The world has heard them in front of Cream's Ginger Baker, keeping the pulse behind Queen at Live Aid, and laying down the monstrous sound of Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks." But their biggest break came when Ringo Starr proudly played them on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.

  • 5-piece acrylic shell pack
  • A modern reproduction of Bonzo's iconic kit
  • Includes a Ludwig Supraphonic snare
  • Drum stand included for mounting the rack tom
