wildbill - here's the only photo of the tom mount I have. Not the best but it's an old Tama clamp with a Pearl tom arm.
I've changed it a bit since this pic.The bottom of the mount rests on a piece of round cork that I put on top of the suitcase resting on the flat area in front as opposed to resting it on the latch . I did this to better keep the arm from moving.

Looks like Boston, maybe around Berklee? A little practice while riding between classes? This thread always has creative stuff. Love it.

Default Show us your tiny kits

Hello Fellow Musicians & Drummers. I'm new to the thread and drumming,but crazy about small,portable,minimalist (mini) drum kits.Also interested in Minimalist Style Drumming.Last spring,I put together a small sit down cocktail kit from two cheap toms.It's a 3 piece kit that is supposed to play like a 4 piece.The snare is a 14" Pulse Piccolo,rack tom is 12X8,and the floor tom/bass drum is 16X15.I disassembled the toms,removed the wraps,sanded and filled the shells,stained,& applied urethane to them.Then re-assembled them. After playing around with this kit for a few months,I've decided to go ahead and convert the Floor tom into a regular horizontal bass drum.Bought a bass drum tom mount and planning to make a DIY drum lift instead buying a conversion kit.It was a bit awkward playing the floor tom using an inverted kick pedal.I think converting it to a regular 4 piece will allow me with greater ease to learn to play styles that I'm very much interested in.Have a look and thanks:)

Hi!
This's my very old Timbales(12") convert it to a Bass drum.6" Mini snare attached on to it.6" mini closed hat,12" splash. Use it for Band jamming & pratice. Short Gig(45min). The playing position can be sitting(normal snare stand) or "standing"(due to small stage: attached the top part of the snare stand to a cymbal stand to made it higher!) Once mic-up,this small little drum it sound's tight & punchy.

That's a 16" kick I might be able to live with. I converted a 16 tom to a bass, but it just didn't seem right without hoops and claws. I like 18's, but the 16 just seemed too small.
I might not have given it a fair chance though - it wasn't around too long.

My homemade multi-rods. The whole kit is quiet enough that I can practice anytime.
ERHMAGERD!!

I've made both a tennis-ball beater AND home made multi-rods back in the day... almost identical on both counts, hahaha....

What kind of kit is that? I'm normally not a fan of those big round lugs but that looks really classy.

That is a Custom Classic, which was a house brand sold by Siglers Music in Arkansas. They sold fairly cheap and are decent drums. Nothing you would go on the road with. I picked this one up used. This one has a really nice deep sparkle lacquer finish.

http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=56575

Basically I think this was one of those "We have 40 bazilion miscellaneous shells and parts in a Chinese warehouse and we'll piece them together and you can slap your badge on it" type deals.

That is a work of art. Do you have plans for that kit and any videos available to hear it?
