I got ya covered, but I do use standard size kicks. (see my avatar)
I play with a prog death, prog rock-metal, classic rock/metal bands, and jam with a rapper, avant garde, indie, and jazz/latin guys all the time. I also do a lot of solo stuff that doesn't really have a specific genre, but if I had to coin a term for this genre, I would name it spaghetti. One room, one kit, this is the result.
I still want (changed from need, lol) a rack, a set of 8 octobans to layer on top of my rack toms just below my crashes, crotales to the far left above the 3rd floor tom, a gong bass to replace the 3rd floor tom, a sample pad, and then I think I will have what I want to play with in all those styles.
From the top.
Full kit from the left.
