UPDATE-FRANKIE BANALI-QUIET RIOT-THE SABAN THEATER-BEIER 1.5 STEEL SNARE--6.5 X 15

Many Thanks Frankie for shooting these pics at the Quiet Riot show Friday, July 11th, at The Saban Theater in Beverly Hills. Frankie chose an exceedingly rare 1978 Ludwig Black & White Vistalite Kit for the show. He knows of only one other kit in this exact color & pattern in these sizes. That kit belonged to John Bonham. Instead of using his 1978 Ludwig 402 Snare...He chose the Beier 1.5 Steel Snare--6.5 x 15. Needless to say, this is one of the greatest compliments Beier Drums has ever received. A clip and sound sample of Frankie playing the 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 15 will be posted by the end of the month. Will update this story. Thank You Again Frankie...
