Re: Big toms - How much more annoying is 16" and 18" floor toms compared to 14" and 16"?

They all have their place - it's good if you can choose a kit that lets you get ad-ons so whatever is "missing" can be added later ;-)

Re: Is it late for me? (Drum starter)

It's too late for you to be Buddy Rich, but I could say that to anyone.

Re: Bands with two drummers

Not much of a fan of 2 drummers, unless one is a percussionist as well:

Mike Oldfield had 2 drummers - though Pierre Moerlen was far more than just a drummer

Genesis with Phil and Chester

Re: What brand of kit do you play?

Kit 1
Handmadedrums - New Guinea Rosewood Stave kit with diecast rims (custom)
- Australian made stave kit
- these are the best drums I've ever heard or played - they stay in the studio
