Default I built my own drumset

Kicks - 10-ply Keller Maple, 20x24, heavy-duty spurs, Aquarian coated SK2 batter, and custom batters.

Toms - 6-ply Keller maple, square size (10, 12, 14, 16), all RIMS mounted from DW double tom mounts, Aquarian coated studio-x on all batters and classic clears for all resos.

Snare - 10-ply Keller maple, 8x14, Trick throw-off, coated studio-x and evans hazy 200.

Finish - Black dye with dead flat lacquer topcoat for a flat black look. I hit the chrome lugs and rims with a scouring pad to give them a brushed-steel look. The graphics are cheap auto decals that I just stuck on.

It was a lot of fun to build. I got to pay close attention to every small detail, from the finish all the way down to the Stainless Steel M4x.7 10mm hexcap screws to mount the lugs. Overall, it's not a masterpiece, but it sure sounds good.
