Re: Show Me Your "Monster" Kits! (let's say... 7 piece and up)
This might not be a 'monster' kit amoung true 'monster' kits but for me it's big enough - I usually play a 4pc kit.
This is what my Purewood African Mahogany 6pc Gretsch kit evolved to a couple of years after I bought it. I bought it new in 2007 - one of only two shellpacks available to Canada. They had to be ordered/sent from the Factory in Taiwan. There were only 60 shellpacks made for world-wide sale. They are incredibley nice drums and I stack them up to Gretsch Custom USA any day....I can say that because I have a new Custom USA kit and three Vintage Gretsch kits.
The photo was taken in 2009 - I don't have the rack (Gibraltar DBL Bass Rack) I traded it for some new Gibraltar Jazz Series stands and I love them.
I added the Remo Roto toms that I've had since I bought them new in the early 70's - 12/10/8 and I added a 6 a couple of years ago. The lighter drum on the far right is a Gretsch Mighty Mini snare.
