Well, here is a little info I found in just a quick look. Hope this gets you in the right direction.

Ludwig Super Classic white

This set is a 1989 Ludwig Super Classic. It has 4-ply maple-poplar shells, I ordered this set as it is, I didn't assembly it from different pieces. Obviously it has the same exact sizes as the Ludwig set that Neil used for "Hold Your Fire" and the following world tour, and you can see and hear it in "A Show of Hands."

Living in Italy I remember seeing Rush for the first time in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1988 during the "Hold Your Fire" tour. It's interesting to know that when Neil switched to Ludwig, he gave up for the first time the melodic toms and started using three power-depth closed toms. I customized the set having the lugs and rims gold plated. Also I added sparkles to the white finish to match the look of Neil's set. Finally, I added a 5x5x14 Slingerland Artist snare drum, and a Tama gong bass drum―both refinished like the whole set.

The hi-hat pedal is a Tama Titan while the bass drums pedals are Camco.

The toms sizes are:
9x6-9x8-9x10 power toms
8x12-9x13-12x15 toms
16x18 floor tom
Two 14x24 bass drums
Cymbals all "A" Zildjian except where noted:
13" hi-hat
8"and 10" splashes
Two 16" crashes
18" and 20" crashes
22" ping ride
18" Pang
20" Wuhan china

We were at the music store the other day. My 13 year old is taking guitar lessons..

Anyway, I wandered over to the drum sections and good gravy, drums are not cheap! They wanted $249 for one Zildjian ride.. That is just one! Glad my daughter has no interest in the drums.. well from the price point of view anyway.. I would spend the money on drums if that was where her interest lay.. Thank God Jimmy Page is her idol!

We are looking at a $399 Fender strat and a $69 Ibanez amp. I can handle that..
Happy 2015!

LMFAO!!! Agreed but I chose a different path. Therefore I must shell out for the shells!

Soup, my Pearl Export was $800 for just the 5 drums and the tom mounts. My Pearl GLX Super Pro was $1,200 for the 7 drums alone. My cymbals were over $1,000 but I had them before both sets. Yeah, not cheap. I have probably bought $500 to $700 more in cymbals in the last 23 years since the original purchase.
