Ludwig Amber Vistalite Drumkit
John Bonham, ca. 1975
General Specs
Years in use: May 05, 1973 - May 25, 1975
Website: http://www.ludwig-drums.com/ 
This drumkit was delivered from Ludwig in March 1973 containing various-sized toms plus an additional bass drum. On the three nights that The Song Remains The Same was filmed, the 16" x 20" and 16" x 22" floor toms were rotated in use. Bonham was one of the first to play this new line from Ludwig and was the only amber-tinted kit of the first run.

This kit was eventually auctioned off at Sotheby's to (now deceased) collector Bill Townsend for over a hundred thousand pounds with the proceeds going to charity.
