    Zeppelin and drums
  1. Hello all, I'm a massive fan of Zeppelin as I know you all are. I'm looking forward to having and reading discussions on the forum. Thanks for having me.
  2. What about the bass drum itself? I think bonham tuned the resonant sid higher than the batter to almost a jazz type tuning. That being said I myself have had a non official bonham kit. It was a 1971 Ludwig Classic Maple with re-rings. The only difference was the bass drum was 24" instead of 26" but it was very bombastic. I tuned the drums as similar to bonham as I could and had the bass drum tuned up and with out the res being ported and nothing stuffed in the drum. This gave one heck of a beater bounce without much effort. The air inside the bass drum has no where to go so you get that bounce. Trying to bury the beater would result in a double, but the second strike would be flubby. Can I do Bonham's right foot work......ummmm no, but that set up helped me try. I did use a felt strip on the resonant side to help keep the over tones down a bit. Why did I sell that kit? because I'm obsessed with buying and selling drums but that was one hell of a case of sellers remorse later. By the way........Bonham is simply the best.
