Has anyone out there thought about naming or named their kit?
The closest I've come is having a spork labeled "destroyer of humans" sticking out of the bass vent.

I call my kit many different names. Profanity is often used in the house because if something breaks or something, I often yell "YOU (female dog)"
I'm watching a video of the Safety Dance from Men without Hats!!

Guess what my name is under 20 characters.
06-08-2007, 06:00 AM
so do you all mention your kit's name often? such as, "i'm going to go practice on 'kermit' for a while"
anyway, i don't have a name for mine.

06-10-2007, 04:44 AM
I actually don't have names for my current kits. When I used to have my Tama Starclassics...the bass player at that time named them "The Green Machine".
06-10-2007, 07:35 PM
Isn't naming your classified as 'a bit wierd'?
Although, I could see mine being called "Betty"...

I don't have any names for my drums, but reading this thread has inspired me to think of some possibilities!
06-30-2007, 05:09 PM
ya know...i've never thought about naming my kit before. I just got a new kit yesterday (pictures will be up soon) and I can see naming it very soon. I have just been calling it "my new baby"...but the wife is getting a little upset, especially because we have one on the way :)
06-30-2007, 05:16 PM
I named my kit Tom cruise , after my favorite unicorn.
07-02-2007, 06:51 AM
I call it, "my kit."
07-03-2007, 03:54 PM
My kits name is the brown death star, my e kits name is Roland.

I'm working on building a miniature version of Bozzio's kit called "The Psychojazz Cadillac", with a wink and a nod to chopper builder Billy Lane.
Mine is called SONOR and that is usually enough said.:)

I call mine a p.o.s., because it's a p.o.s.
I love my drums, but the quality is not great. I look at them every day and think about how much I love them, but she could look so much better. Reminds me of my ex-girlfriend. She was cute, but some days it wasn't there.
That's mean. I'm actually really good friends with her.
07-09-2007, 02:43 PM
hh that's a nice thread...
here's another question for you:
do u see your set as a female, or as a male...?
i think mine's like my lover
07-09-2007, 08:49 PM
My favorite kit name that I have heard is a friends kit called:
The BIG Funk Up!
