Brand new to the forum, but 34 year drummer. Very cool kits in this thread! Here's my silver sparkle DW kit in the early stages back in 2007. She's MUCH bigger now. I'll take some new pic's and download as soon as possible...

Nice looking kit aircooled0801!…just curious does the woofer on front of the bass drum make that difference?… looks-wise it certainly does

Sorry for taking so long to respond. Yes, the woofer makes a HUGE difference. The "boom" is unbelievable! If you're a pure speed player though, I find the smaller 20 or 22 kicks without the woofer much quicker (obviously) with more punch and recovery, but if you're a power player like I am, the combo is perfect. Quite honestly, the best kick I've ever owned is on my mid 90's DW natural maple kit that's a 20 x 18 with a 20 x 10 woofer. I haven't added that pic anywhere on here, but if you look up my ID on YouTube, you'll see it in one of my video's. Anyway, that kick is really the best of both worlds. Boom boom boom, but still has good rebound due to it's smaller diameter.

Speaking of kicks, I'm adding a new baby to the kit... a 24 x 24 custom DW kick that was Tommy Lee's during the Generation Swine period (1997). It's silver sparkle to match, but it's lacquer finish vs. finish ply. I'll set it up basically as you would a traditional double kick setup (but the 28 with woofer will still be in the left rear), so having the one 24 x 18 (plus the 24 x 8 woofer) next to the 24 x 24 should look pretty cool. I will probably also refinish my blue 24 woofer in silver sparkle to match and place it in front of the 24 x 24 (at times anyway) which will put the kick setup over the top for power playing. :-) If that works out the way I think it will, I actually have ANOTHER 28" woofer that I can place in front of the other 28" woofer (for looks only of course).

Since selling two of my three 28 kicks, I'll probably also convert my 18" floor tom to a kick to have as an aux. kick to the right of my primary kick. Always changing stuff around!!! This addiction never gets old, but it sure is freaking expensive!!! Like I'm telling any of you anything new though.

Should have just added this link to my last post. It's long and doesn't make sense with the music, but after making the video, I realized it was better without my boring commentary. Also, I'm going to be building a studio in the near future (I hope) to actually have a place to fit these toys. Oh, and the setup is already a little different, but that seems to be a constant with me. A.D.D.!!! The new 24 x 24 and the remainder of my DW rack should be complete by early next week once I'm able to move some things around to make room.

Current pic of setup after new DW rack... 24 x 24 kick will be where the blue woofer is located in this pic. I had the woofer there to confirm clearance with rack bar and pedal mock-up.

...and with the 24 x 24. This kick sounds unbelievable!!! I have both 24's tuned to the exact same key, so it's cool to hear the 24 x 18 with the woofer resonate a little differently than the monster 24 x 24. I muffled the deeper of the two with a pillow and large blanket to get the "punch" I was looking for. Otherwise, I believe I could tune them to sound almost identical with a little trial and error.

Thanks for the compliment!

No, I don't typically travel with this kit. Learned the hard way a long time ago with a monster Tama Artstar kit I had years ago. :-) I have a small (but sounds monster) mid 90's natural maple finish DW kit that consists of:
(1) 18 x 20 kick
(1) 10 x 20 woofer
(1) 8 x 10 tom
(1) 9 x 12 tom
(1) 11 x 14 tom
(1) 4 x 12 maple piccolo
(1) 6 x 14 red sparkle Edge snare
(2) Zildjian K Crashes
(1) Zildjian K China
(1) Zildjian Earth Ride
(1) Zildjian A Splash
DW 9000 stands
DW 5000 double pedal/hi-hat combo

I seriously need to change my ID to A.D.H.D... The 24's are now setup as primaries (yes, both). The smaller is an 18" that I'll be running straight off the drum rack with a remote pedal. Still to the far left and rear is my 28" with woofer. 22" DW gong drum is en route as are two new china's and curved DW rack goodies!

Not sure I'd call mine a monster kit, but as a teen I did subscribe to the "he who dies with the most drums wins" theory, thus the 9 piece kit with concert toms.....12 if you count the Remo roto's.

I'm using the Coated Amb X right now and love them.
Haven't really tuned them "high" at all. These drums are built using the lowest fundamental pitch these shells can have. Don't think they'd register very well up in a "high" tuning. I'm sure they'd be nice sounding but, a horizontal ply shell will sound much better in the higher tuning range.

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.

My "Little" Monster Kit............

That's a beautiful kit, but it's really not Monster. To me, that's 9 pieces and up. 5 to 8 is mid sized.

Ya - I know,
But the first post did say at least 7 - so I threw mine in the mix.

I could add Elvin Jones 16 FT....and a couple of other orphan toms and auxillary snares to fit the bill.

There are some nice kits on the thread.....fun to play I'll bet.

Wow, there are some absolute BEASTS in this thread!

Hello everyone, I'm new. On saturday, for the first (and only) time I set up all my drum gear at once. I found having 5 splashes was pretty useable (we did a Porcupine Tree cover so they came in handy...) but having 4 snares was pointless, as you can probably tell from that fact that one of them was being used for a camera stand... 2 will do me!



Drums are Yamaha Oak Customs, snares are various. You can see where my cymbal tastes lie...
