That's right, in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Vistalite, we have created a special arrangement with Ludwig for exclusivity for 14x18 and 14x20 bass drum sizes. Vistalite debuted in 1972 and was targeted at the rock music market. However, what some people don't know is that Vistalite is an excellent shell for many different styles of music. The sound is very clear and focused, and the drums are musical. With this new initiative the versatility of Vistalite can now be experienced by a wider audience than ever before. We have not one, not two, but 30 sets on order. You can reserve one now by contacting Steve at vintagedrums@aol.com. And, you can order a single bass drum if you want to add that to an existing Vistalite kit that you own. And keep in mind that red and green are only being offered for one year, so get yours now. AND, MADE IN USA!!!!

Here's what we have coming in:

8x12, 14x14, 14x18, 5x14: Clear (2 sets, 1 sold Andrew M. 1 sold John B. Can order more), Red (3 sets), Green (1 set), Amber (2 sets), Blue (2 sets), Yellow (2 sets, one sold T So. ), Pink (1 set), Smoke (1 set).

8x12, 14x14, 14x20, 5x14: Clear (3 SOLD OUT sets. 1 sold Chuck C, 1 sold Jeff L. 1 SM), Red (4 sets 1 sold Matt D), Green (1 set, SOLD Dawn S. I can get more), Amber (2 sets), Blue (2 sets, 1 sold Stew B, 1 sold Chuck C), Yellow (2 sets), Pink (1 set), Smoke (1 set).

See Ludwig's factory Vistalite video HERE.

The shell and bearing edge:

Reinforced Seam Molded Acrylic

Notorious for their attack as they are for their stunning crystalline looks, Vistalite acrylic drums are a statement both sonically and visually. Vistalite drums are produced to highest construction standards with reinforced seams and crisp bearing edges for optimum shell integrity and tuning range. Since 1972, Vistalite drums have been performed on and coveted by some of music's top players.

Available in 6 standard colors: Amber (47), Blue (55), Yellow (56), Clear (38), Smoke (V6), and Pink (PK). Piece together your own custom drum kit from a range of components or put yourself behind one of 3 standard outfits. Vistalite drums feature the popular '70's vintage blue/olive badges, large classic lugs, classic brackets, vibra-bands, and curved spurs.
