    I love the look of that double bass kit. Almost exactly the same as Carmine Appice. There was a rumour going around that one of those kicks was a 14" depth and the other was a 16". I think he used that kit for Bonzo's Montreaux if I'm not mistaken. He definitely used either a double pedal or two kicks. But early 70s I doubt he had a double pedal.

    Another rumour is that he used a re ring sort of thing on the front of his bass drum heads. You can clearly see it in the second pic. The third might just be part of the head.

    Bonzo didn't use that DB kit long. Rumor has it that members of LZ took one of them and dragged it off stage one night because they felt like it changed his sound.
