Get ready for a new explosion of colour as Ludwig celebrates the 50th anniversary of their legendary Vistalite Drums - Doing away with the psychedelic vibe of the '60s, Vistalite changed the perception of what a drum kit was capable of. Boasting a powerful sound and presence, not found in traditionally-built wood drums, and a visual flair to command audiences and turn heads.
Beloved for their fierce attack, and their striking transparent aesthetics, Vistalite acrylic drums are both a sonic and visual statement. Played and adored by some of the industry's top performers since their inception in 1972, Vistalite drums are hand-crafted in the USA and give you a voice that lets you be heard - and remembered!
50 Years of History
1972 ushered in a new era of music and fashion, and Ludwig was right there to be on the cutting-edge of that "galactic-glamour" era. Setting the new gold standard for what acrylic drums could be, in 1975, Ludwig became the first drum builder to offer pattern and multi-coloured options as part of their selection of finishes. Vistalite took the spotlight - from the the greatest drummers in rock, pop, disco, and funk, to film and TV's greatest hits - giving players a platform to not only let their unique individuality shine, but to make them memorable as well. This celebrated long-lasting impact have made Vistalite a first choice for players all over the globe.
