    Getting back behind the kit after a long (20 year) break. Just picked up a Ludwig Breakbeat kit that I will be doing an A2E conversion on. The days when the kit was in the living room are long gone, as I will probably be banished to the garage now. Going electronic now, as proud as Bonham would have been about breakout out the vistalites, the neighbors and family are not equally impressed. Hopefully I can grab some tips on the conversion, and I will update the results.
    Ludwig Blue Vistalites, Ludwig Breakbeats, Roland TD-3, Pintech Cymbals
