Yup. I plan to have the wall behind my dream kit COVERED with Coffin-Case stick cases. :kduh:

I'll have about 20-30 cymbals (all of which would be Zildjian), about 7 toms ( :keek: ), around 2-3 snares, and prolly 3 different sized bass's. :keek: :keek:

How's THAT for a dream kit......?



PS,
Oh, and all of the above mentioned DRUMS, would be DW or Mapex.

This is my drum kit that I play at my church...uhhh, it's got a snare, a hi-hat, a cowbell, a big tom, a smaller tom, a floor tom, the bassy kicky thingy, a crash cymbal, another crash that's exactly the same as the previous crash, a splash, a smaller splash, a ride, and a seat that's about to fall apart. Oh, and it's got four mics.

I'm not much for specifics, I guess. Well, cuz I really don't know, lol.

well, i have been switching back and forth between 2 toms and 3, and I think I finally have switched it to 3 for the last time (ID will be happy). Plus, I added my 10 crappy splash back on.

If i could get any kit i would for sure get an ayotte kit. But they're super expensive.

All this talk about huge kits, a big kit isn't always better. You have to be able to use it, some of the best drummers i've heard play with just a highhat snare and bass, with a tom or a cymbal or two.

so very true! and actually, if you play with a "bare bones" kit, i think you have a tendency to try new things to get more sounds. at least i find myself doing that. hmph. speaking of 'different sounds', i think i need to add a set of pots and pans to my drum set.... :-D

a cool practice to do (it also helps you to set up your kit efficiently) is to set just a bass drum and snare in front of you and play. Then add the high hat, then a crash. Then maybe throw in a tom or ride, etc, etc until you have everything.

yeah some of the best drummers use huge kits... like mike from dream theater.. huge kit.. and then some of the best use tiny kits.. it really depends on the style of music your playing.

Bah! I'm starting to see people bash big sets. This is often due to people that haven't the money or the abilty to play such monstrosities. I don't understand you silly people who say small kits are all you need. Big sets mean variety, you can still play the small ensemble with a big set. It gives you the option to do more, which i've always said is the best way to go about becoming a great drummer.
Now, I myself have a huge set, and I do know how to use it. I know my stuff, so don't attempt to be silly on me. ;-)

And yes, Mike Portnoy is my drum God, among others. But I will play with him one day :-D

My kit ain't the fanciest, but it works for me.
5-piece Percussion Plus (got it for free from a nearly preacher)
Sabian 6" Splash
Camber II 14" Hi-Hats
Zildjian Medium Crash (don't know size)
Pearl Crash (don't know size to that either)
Sabian Molto Symphonic 18" Suspended Cymbal
Avanti 20" Medium Ride
Avanti 15" Hi-Hats (will probably use those for other cymbals)
Cowbell
Hat Trick
Set of Cool Rods, Lightning Rods, Wire Brushes, 808 Rockers, about three pairs of 7A's with wood tip, one pair of 5A nylon tip
I have Remo Soundmaster heads that are probably ten years old (came with the kit) and a new Remo pinstripe on the bass
That's about it-my old kit is a 5-piece Pearl Export that my dad got around the time I was born so it's about 15 years old
That's about it-may not be top-of-the-line but it works for me!
