I know that when the Doors did thier first tour minus Jim, John was using a Hayman English made set. Simon Kirke from Free/Bad Co. had a set of Haymans that he used at the Isle of Wight and they can be seen on the DVD. In the eighties it looks like John had a pearl set with concert toms and I noticed that his floor tom looked like the 14" Ludwig floor tom from his 1968 WMP Doors set that was used on the european tour.
His first set used on the first album, possibly the second and definately waiting for the sun was a WMP Gretsch set in 20,12,14 sizes. I have no idea what happened to to that set.
Look under Ludwig standard 1971.

Anyway, I put the idea on the back burner until recently. But now I've discovered that the color is no longer offered in Ludwig's catalog. Can't tell you how disappointed I am that I didn't pull the trigger sooner ...
Anyone know much about Ludwig, whether they could somehow still produce such a kit even though the color is off the "official" list? I'll give them a call, but just wondering if anyone's had experience with them.

I can't find any information on this kit. But it looks and sounds like a beauty, especially during the Felt Forum shows from Jan 1970. I'm a drummer too, I'm about to buy myself a cheap five piece Japanese made Swing Star. It looks 60s to me, I've never seen two block mounted rack toms before. But then I'm still pretty new to vintage drums.
