EP 208 - A look at John Densmore's Gear (The Doors) with Kurt Ekstrom





John Densmore of The Doors is truly a drumming icon of the 1960's and his Ludwig Mod Orange Drum Set is just as important in the history of Rock and Roll. My guest is Kurt Ekstrom who is a diehard fan of Densmore and also extremely passionate and knowledgable about Mod Orange drums. This episode is both a look at John Densmore's life and career with The Doors and a deep dive into his drum gear. We talk various drum kits, cymbals, hardware, heads and everything along the way including Kurts hunt for what happened to the famous Mod Orange drum set!

Did you know John Densmore never changed his Mod Orange floor tom head throughout his entire career!?


Here is Kurts article for Not So Modern Drummer about the hunt for the kit: https://www.notsomoderndrummer.com/not-so-modern-drummer/tag/Ludwig+Mod+Orange
