http://inlinethumb26.webshots.com/26...600x600Q85.jpg

these are my two combined kits. Specs are 24x16, 18x16, 12x8, 13x9,14x14,15x13,16x16, 14x6 maple, and 14x6 edge snares.

Cymbals are 21"wil Calhoun, 14" Manhattan hats, 14" el sabor hats, 18" fast china, 18" el Sabor, 18" hhxtreme, 18" legacy, 18" hh medium, 18"aaxplosion crashes.

I set this up just after Christmas, and took it down shortly after. I am not a big kit kat. This was just an excercise in 80's wankery.

This is the Kit I had 4 years ago. Though it was scaled down shortly after this was taken and onlky once played in it's entirety, lol. Basically I used the 3 bass drums, 5 toms and 2 snares.

Pictured here, we have. 2, 22X30 kick drums, a 22X14 kick and a 28X14 Kick. 8 toms, 2 snares, an array of percussion and maybe 14 cymbals?

The other pic is one of my current sets, the 7 piece Gretsch.

Well, I don't consider it a monster (yet), but the accent snare on the pedal makes it 7.

I finally just pieced this kit together. I have had the snare for over 2 years, but finally saved enough money to buy the toms/kicks and have been slowly putting it all together....playing drums costs too much hehe

This custom kit is made by PRECISION DRUMS (out of new york)
Snare: 6X12
Toms: 8X12, 9X13, 10X14, 16X16
Kicks: 18X22

(i posted this with the original post but):

Snare: 6X12
Toms: 8X12, 9X13, 10X14, 16X16
Kicks: 18X22

the cymbals are a mix of every brand- Wuhan chinas(20", 14"), Paiste (20"ride, 4" accent cymbal, 6" accent cymbal) and a 18" china, Zildjian 13" hats, 14"hats, 16" fast crash / 14" crash, and an 18" Meinl classic.....

the rack is Gibraltar- the one and only Curved rack made just for a double bass drum kit......

Your kit is sweet, but one thing that made me laugh...

The word "bleeg," it's like, big letter, big letter, big letter, etc..."

And then there's that tiny little 'g,' which made me crack up.

Here is mine. Old picture though. I have taken away the three roto toms on the right. moved the one black tom on the right to the left in between my first floor and second rack tom and cranked the tuning on it. Ive also added a bass drum and an additional snare on the right.

D, ya' gotta' nuf' pedals to be an apple orchard :). Seriously, what are those two outside pedals for. Clave blocks? Bottom beaters for floor toms? Really curious.

Re: Show Me Your "Monster" Kits! (let's say... 7 piece and up)
 
Wow. Derek's kit is pretty fine. I think I've got two (well, sort of) that qualify for monster status. First my older birch kit...

http://homepage.mac.com/julianlove/....ght_01_web.jpg
http://homepage.mac.com/julianlove/....eft_02_web.jpg

And then the new maple version, which was already highlighted in another thread, so I'll the pics to a minimum...

Re: Show Me Your "Monster" Kits! (let's say... 7 piece and up)
 
Both amazing kits! I have not seen the birch before, really vibrant color! Nice aggressive cymbal setup too! I like the acrylic octabans. I have had some made but a low pitched set runs too much now, sadly.

Derek's kit is very fine! It has probably my favorite Sonor finish on it. It's also cool to see pros with meinl once in a while.

slingerland755 03-06-2009 09:34 PM

Re: Show Me Your "Monster" Kits! (let's say... 7 piece and up)
 
The Sonor's and the DW's are both about as sweet as it gets.

I'd say up to four piece is a small kit, five to eight is a mid-sized kit (what most of us play) and nine and above is a Monster Kit.

I agree except for me a small kit is up to 5 pieces, a medium is 6 to 8, and 9 and above is a Monster kit. I also think that the amount of cymbals should be accounted for. A small cymbal set up is up to 4 cymbals, a medium is 5 to 7, and a large is 8 and up.

Awesome kits, everybody!! I am so jealous.

The OP started the thread, and had made his definition as "7 piece or more".

I agree, 6-8 is a medium kit. Mine is essentially that. But like other threads, if someone asks "Let me see your SNARE drums" and someone posts a BASS drum, it's not what the OP started the thread for.

GM has appearently more kits than anyone here, I know he could come up with more than six pieces.

Technically, my old "kit" fits the description. But I'm not proud of it:

Hmmm, I could have sworn you switched to some hybrid Meinls (they look like the Zildjian Ks).
