Hi Skitchskitch":16efz4jp said:Very cool! I miss my Big Beat Ludwigs; they weren't Vistalites but the Butcher Block finish. By the way, have you ever thought of starting your own drum company and calling it Earl drums or maybe Earl Jam drums. LOL. Bet you have never heard that before! - hint of sarcasm!
Actually, the Vistalites made today are superior to the 1970's counterparts. The 70's shells were quite brittle and many were the victims of cracks that made the drums unplayable unless fixed by someone with the knowledge to fix acrylic shells. The newer shells have the advantages of today's version of acrylics, much less brittle and all of the good looks and tone of the originals.Tyman345":2r0uapgx said:well dude i knwo they make them now. but they were discontinued back then. thats what my dads buddy was saying cuz hes in a band. also the new vistilights are not as good as the older ones. iv herd that from countlees music store owners. but all im saying is tha he found it, its what he wanted back i 79', and he just found that same one. thx
