I have to agree with DMC in this case. I reckon you need at least 9 drums to be a monster kit officially. Even the setup i did with my kit is probably pushing it due to lack of cymbals. I reckon for anything less than 9 drums to be a monster, there has to at least be a hellovaloada cymbals on top! (good example being earthshaker's kit there which i think looks pretty monstrous even though it's only an 8pc.)
