Carmine Appice's Rod Stewart Era Ludwig 22" Bass Drums. Signed Logo Heads! Authenticated!

From the Carmine Appice Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault in Seattle, WA. 

It’s impossible to adequately describe Carmine’s massive impact on the drum world. He redefined rock drumming with his innovative playing with Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Beck Bogart and Appice, Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osborne, Edgar Winter, Ted Nugent and more. He literally “wrote the book” on rock drumming with his “Realistic Rock” drum method, the best selling rock drum book of all time. He introduced the rock drum world to China cymbals and gongs that are now commonplace on the modern drum set. Carmine is without a doubt, one of the most influential and innovative drummers of our time.

We've just acquired a huge collection of drum gear directly from Carmine Appice. This is just one piece of the collection currently available here at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.

This pair of mid 70's Ludwig 6-ply 22x14" bass drums in Mahogany Thermo-Gloss finish were part of Carmine's earlier 1970s 3-ply Octa-Plus set. Each bass drum is mounted with four, 1/2" arched spurs. These drums were added to the Octa-Plus set in about 1976 and used predominantly on Rod Stewart recordings between 1976 and 1980. Carmine generally preferred 22" bass drums for recording and favored 24" bass drums for live performances.

The drums are in excellent condition but show normal signs of wear for drums of their age.

The "Carmine Appice" logo bass drum heads are modern Evans replicas of the bass drum heads he used during the 70s. Both heads are hand signed "Keep Rockin' Carmine Appice"

COA signed by Carmine Appice.

Carmine Appice is one of the most innovative and influential rock drummers of all time. He used these drums during the commercial peak of his legendary drumming career spanning 7 decades.
