1965 Ludwig w Zildjian hits road with FAT TIRE: Tour de Fat summer concert series. When New Belgium Brewing Company needed a vintage, 60's era Ludwig for their Tour de Fat summer concert series, they turned to Denver's #1 used drum resource. To find the kit they needed was not easy as collectors LOVE these drums. They sell for top dollar on eBay with irrational exuberance. Tough order to fill for most. It took about 7 weeks to hunt down this very special 1965 Ludwig drum set in damn-near new condition. Champagne Sparke finish that is in showroom-new condition. Original owner bought them in summer, 1965 (have receipt) and played them for a bit before meeting a lady. She custom-sewed drum cases for him out of denim and told him to put his drums away as she hated them. He did, and over 40 years later, I bought them in like-new condition at an estate sale in Utah. They are truly mint. Amazing drums with 10" and 12" hanging toms I mounted on beefy stands, 14" and 16" floor toms, and a huge-sounding but tiny 14x20" bass drum. Vintage Ludwig aluminum Acrolite from the early 60-'s was added from my personal stash. Per my buddy from Geffen's recommendation (and thankfully, per the rider as was later discovered) tuned it up w Remo coated heads. Also picked up a giant lot of vintage cymbals and delivered a complete and amazing setup to the boys at Fat Tire. Kit is going on tour but will be at Civic Center Park in Fort Collins on 9/5 and at City Park in Denver on 9/12 if you want to check it out for your self. Oh yeah...and I delivered it to them for thousands of dollars less than I could, and FOR MUCH LESS than anyone else that even got a call would.

We're brewing this year's batch of Carnie's Blood! We'll only have one keg of this ale brewed with blood orange juice for each stop on the tour (excluding DC (sorry y'all)), so be sure to line up early at the Lips of Faith tent to make sure you get a pour. #tourdefat #newbelgium
