John Bermuda Schwartz plays a classic 1976 Ludwig Vistalite concert tom kit
"Here's my 1976 Ludwig Vistalite concert tom kit. It probably started out as an Overdrive kit (with a virgin kick and 4 larger toms) and the 4 high toms were added to the order. It has the original stands, lugs, gaskets, rims, rods, washers... and is clean as a whistle."
