Default Re: My possible alternative cocktail kit?

This seems to work just fine, so I wouldn't invest in a cocktail kit .... since you already own drums that can be applied.
As far as different heads ..... something like a P3 for the bottom (more of a bass drum head) and an Emperor of Ambassador up top. Or maybe just a felt strip on the bottom.
It's not so much "floor space" that you're saving ..... you're hauling 1 less drum. And it's your largest drum you're leaving at home. If you really want to save on real estate, you kinda need to go with the more traditional "cocktail" formula .... which usually means 14" floor/bass, smaller snare, small hats and small ride/crash. The Erskine kit has the more traditional sizes.
As usual, your playing is killer.
