I would settle for just Zildjian K's

Since we're dreaming here, can I have a whole drumset? All carved from an old growth North American birdseye maple log that is 300 years old, milled in the style of Canopus' Zelkova snare, (slightly barrel shaped for strength) only with nothing drilled into the shell except 3 grommet-less vent holes, gorgeous oiled hand rubbed woodgrain, each head independently tensioned off the shell without lugs, and a mechanism for popping off both batter and reso hoops at the same time, with just 1 lever so you could change shells if you wanted to on the fly...When you use the lever to snap the 2 halves back together after swapping the shells, the tuning remains unchanged, but of course you still have tension rods to tune it like a standard drum.

Buying drums = buying shells and reusing hardware.
Suspension mounting is inherent, I would spec in die cast counter hoops, color logo engraved in the hoops, (no badge on drums, no lugs, no metal at all)
Of course a whole warehouse full of the worlds finest cymbals all held on the sturdiest and lightest cymbal stands with ratchetless universal tilters.

But more importantly,

To be able to really move people when I'm playing them.

OK I'm awake now.

Drums with my choice of finish, wood selection and plies, sizes, hardware, and a whole ton of Paiste high-end cymbals.

Oh, wait, that kit sounds like a Pearl Masterworks set. My bad.

A Paiste 38" symphonic gong. How cool would that look! A la 'Bonzo'.

Re: What piece of kit do you most dream of owning?
 
A Gong Bass Drum that matches my kit's finish.

And maybe a 38" Paiste Symphonic gong. This one to be exact. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sPne...os=5hy5m1FnL8A

mmmm.... tasty.

Kit - a vintage Rogers. Single item to go with my current kit - a Zildjain K Dark Medium Ride.

A 20" Istanbul Agop would be nice.

Re: What piece of kit do you most dream of owning?
 
Like Polly, I also have Agop fever.
I was drooling over a pair of Istanbul Mehmet Constantinople JazzHats
on eBay all day.
I just don't have $350 US to spend on them right now.
I had to pull my hand away from the dangerous "Buy It Now" button several times today.

Re: What piece of kit do you most dream of owning?
 
Seam-less-solid-shell drumkit with free floating lugs...to my specifications...

...and they look good with a finish that shows off the grain of the shell really well...

Like a cross between Spirit Drums and Sleishman...

...imagine how big that would sound!

Paiste 2002 Bonham Cymbal Pack.

$1400. Yeah, I'm dreaming.

Honestly, I have a bottom of the line PDP and I couldn't be happier with it. I did my research on heads and tuning.

1964 Rogers Dynasonic in both 5x14 and 6.5x14 Red Wine Ripple.

Yamaha Absolute or Recording Maple drum kit with a Canopus Zelkova Snare:

The Zelkova Snare Drum, which ahs a hollowed one piece drum shell, can be described as the purest form of the drum. Only one hollowed piece can be taken from a stump of precious 200 year old Zelkova wood, also called Akagi or "red wood". The sound that is produced from a single piece of wood has a unique and powerful attack. Each stroke produces a "block of sound" with a sharp edge and a thick low pitch, while maintaining the warmth of natural wood. The special nature of Zelkova is highly revered and sought after by top drummers around the world.

BUT I will also settle for a Canopus Maple Snare ... :)

A Ludwig Black Beauty with super-sensitive snare strainer. Second on my list would be the Roland TD-20

The sexy, young piece on top of the throne.

Re: What piece of kit do you most dream of owning?
 
I think I'm becoming a committed Sonor man. I just got the Force 3007 kit and use it as a 4-piece: 17x20, 8x10, 14x14FT, and matching 5x14 snare and I'm super impressed. It sounds great!

I think I'll begin saving my pennies for the same thing in a Sonor Delite with actual Sonor hardware to complete the transformation!

A most resounding YES!!!!

In fact I'd GIVE all my gear away for time spent with that!

Well, okay.....I'm keeping the two Supra's and Black Beauty....but the rest is up for grabs to the first bloke who can give me her phone number.

That chick is my favorite chick drummer. She's got character and style, which in my opinion, trumps all. Check her out: http://florrie.com/

Thx for that link....didn't realise she played as well. She is indeed a girl of many talents! Now I'm definitely serious, the gear is up for grabs, I'll just borrow hers.

Might be a good idea if we didn't tell Mrs Pocket though :-)

I've had one of those many years ago... trust me on this, over time she will cost you more than that 'Time Machine" drumkit shown!

Go for the gear Man!!

One day, I'd like a Kumu kit with Masterwork cymbals.

Big_Philly 07-21-2010 12:08 AM

Re: What piece of kit do you most dream of owning?
 
I might get a full stave kit to match my snare, with cases for all drums. And a whole bunch of Sabian AA and AAX cymbals.

Mh, strange situation Polly and Bob, I just sold my 22" Agop Signature.

Well I would like a thin 22" Zildjian Dry Complex (Generation one) at the moment.

Karl, You're killing me man!
Why did you do such a thing?
I saw the vids of you playing it!
And why didn't you sell it to me?

Re: What piece of kit do you most dream of owning?
 
When I was in high school, a thousand years ago (yes they had high schools back then), I went into the auditorium and there on the stage was a set of timpani drums with the adjustable pedals. Back then you had to be in an elite club to be a member of the band. They did not just take anyone you had to win some lottery and have the right blood type to get into the band. I had never played the timpani before. But that day, I went up on stage and I just started playing them, adjusting the pedals and hitting them with my open hand. The sound of them being played like that must have been heard throughout the whole school. I had a great time until the custodian came in and had me stop. So what would I really like to have as an addition to my kit? A set of timpani drums.

Haha, well, if I sold it in the USA, it would almost be more expensive than buying a new one at cymbalsonly...
In fact, I didn`t really like the stick sound and now I`m trying to get a Dry Complex verison one instead, I really dig the complex wash. Wish me luck anyway Bob! ;-)

That would be brilliant! *sigh*

I'd also love to have Jamie Muir's 200+ percussion toys ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCed47HdRu8

... and someone to lug and set up ...

Oh, now you're talking. I was lucky enough to be trained on timpani from age 12 through 16. My tutor was the principal percussionist at the Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra. She remains my foundation inspiration to this day. Anyhow, I was trained on a school pair of fibreglass bowl timpani with manual key tuning. After 4 years of instruction, my tutor thought I was good enough to do a performance with the Philharmonic Orchestra. Not a standard concert, a special one were a few youth orchestra guests were allowd to play. I remember stepping up to this stunning old set of 4 pedal tuned copper bowl timpani and starting to play. The Philharmonic hall was designed specifically for classical orchestra acoustics, and the sound was breathtaking. After playing on my own for about 3 minutes (empty hall), I stopped & cried. It was just too emotional. I'll never forget that moment.

So yes please, a set of 4 pedal tuned timps for me please. Don't know when I'd use them, but who cares!

An old Pearl Export kit converted into a tiny kit with a 16" bass drum that was given to me after the owner's wife had heard I was a drummer and wanted to give away her deceased husband's kit. Oh wait. I've just been fortunate enough to have this bestowed. And a privilege it is too.
