Howdy!!

We all know that when they started in Las Vegas, Ronnie didn't have a big drum-set, but over the years it got bigger!
So.. when was Ronnie Tutt's drum-set biggest? :)

I gotta say...Ronnie's one of my favorite drummers. One of the things I like about the mix on MSG is that I can hear his playing. Great energy for Elvis, and there is just enough slack in his playing that he can create a great groove and still make it loose. And, I like the drum set, too!

It's easy to see when Ronnie had the biggest drum kit. To me, it had to be after late 1973-74 when he started using the different color of Ludwig drumset instead of the blue sparkle set he had used in films like EOT and "Aloha From Hawaii".

Why did he abandon the TTWII set so quickly? I liked that set.
