You can build a large white double bass drum kit using any manufacturer's drums. Some have featured quite prominently here from time to time. Is there something special about this Lars Ulrich model other than his name is on it?

Hi mate- yeah thanks for the tips.

For starters I collect rare and unique metallica items. Im talking cliff burton autographs, stage used items, rare promo posters, etc.

This kit hits the heart- its lars in his best form- its when metallica ruled the world- to me its also the best looking piece of kit ever made. (obviously drums have come along way since)

I was going to buy a kit off someone that did what you have mentioned but when it came to it id rather spend the extra and get the real thing!

besides it being a metallica thing its also the only full signature kit Tama has ever done so its pretty rare!

Ah, ok, I get it. Your search is very specific from a collectors POV. Good luck :)

Rare, yes.

They were made for one year only, and they were a limited release.

When I worked at GC in San Francisco, we had one. I set it up and did a whole Lars display. . I forget the price tag, other than it was pricey. And then management moved it to one of the Los Angeles stores.

True according to that thread but when you are short and use deep toms, you have no choice. Those toms are huge.
and the overkill with the weighted cymbal stands and the smallish cymbals

I sat behind one of those kits when they were new, it was a display on the floor. Now I'm 6' tall, and felt like a munchkin behind the thing. Seriously, a 16" rack tom and 2 18" floors, the kit is ridiculously huge. I will say it does look pretty damn cool though.

That's my favorite of Lars' kits. Back when Tama made a mean looking drum kit. That kit was an Artstar II with black Granstar lugs. Certainly not my style now but I love it.

I too always wanted that kit and kinda settled for an 11 piece Imperialstar kit but it doesn't have those black Granstar lugs which look awesome. I am having a very hard time finding those telscoping cymbal stands and would pay big money for 5 or 6 of those. Good luck but anybody with that kit is going to want 5K plus I'm guessing.

I've seen those kits pop up on Ebay from time to time, but not in a while.
May want to keep en eye out.

If your interested I have the last pair of Lars' Signature Regal Tip drumsticks ever produced.
I worked for the company many years ago and found like 4-5 pair in the plant. I returned them all to Lars except 1 pair that I kept for myself ;)

They sit in my private collection, but I'd let'em go to the right buyer. PM me if your interested.

I saw this exact kit for sale on ebay (Australia) for sale a few months ago (some guy from Perth I think). From what I remember, only the snare drum wasn't the real deal.
Not much help I know but I did go through the completed listings to no avail (don't know if it sold or not).
I also love this kit and think it was one of his best- if we all band together across the world I'm sure we can find one dammit!!

Hi mate,

I know one will pop up eventually!
