I had up to 4 snares but it stressed me out
/QUOTE]

This is the exact reason why I am a gear minimalist. As much I love, drool over and dream about all kinds of musical gear, it frustrates me to have to choose from multiple options, so I keep minimal amount of gear and make it work for all situations.

I played bass guitar semi-professionally for many years and never owned more than one bass guitar at a time. Just recently I talked myself into getting a fretless bass, so now I have two basses, but at times, I get flustered trying to decide which one suits a song better!

Here is my list:
1 acoustic drum kit
2 snares besides the one that came with my kit
1 set of hihats
2 crash cymbals that I also ride
Zero ride cymbals
1 Splash cymbal
1 Djembe
1 set of bongos
1 each of various small percussion stuff
*****Non-drum*****
1 fretted bass
1 fretless bass
1 electric guitar
1 acoustic guitar
1 bass combo amp
1 guitar combo amp
A few guitar and bass effects boxes but nothing over the top
1 synthesizer
1 synth sound module

Hey, Bermuda, you added two cymbals in the last week or so.

Just curious (sorry if I missed it). Do you have any UFIPs in your collection? Any boutique or custom made units? Sabian is a great company. They made me some custom units years ago not in the catalog.

After having seen a couple of episodes of that reality show, I would say there is a marked difference. Hoarders tend to fill every available space with junk and sometimes even garbage. Yes, literal garbage.

Definitely keep the files, though they go into an "old" folder so as not to be confused with the same code # when it gets re-assigned.

A hoarder just stashes stuff.

A collector also lists it in a database.

And a professional takes a tax deduction.

Just got some UFIP rock type hats, and I have a few others in my arsenal. My very first was an Icebell back in 1981 or so which I still have.

A sample of it was crunched up and used as a great heavy metal anvil sound on one of Al's tracks.

Clearly,Bermuda is the winner,but there are those who's collections,are even greater.Though I couldn't put a number on it(but come to think of it,I'll just ask him),I think Bun E.Carlos would be an overall winner.

The man has a warehouse full of gear.

I thought I was bad ,but I have trimmed way down,and below is all that remains of a once full attic.

5 sets
14 snare drums
50 cymbals
1 conga drum
1 set of timbales
1 hi hat ching ring
1 cowbell
various drumsticks,brushes,multi rods and practice pads

Just your standard Ludwig Red Cortex from the early 80's 6-ply era. My other set of Luddy's is an early 70's -ply in Blue Silk.

Bun E. has a rather healthy and notorious collection of kits, although I'm pretty sure Gary Asher has him beat.

I have only heard of one other person who reputedly has more cymbals than I, a collector in NYC (I think) who has 1200 or something like that. Lots of old Ks apparently. I never got their name or much other info though.

I'm sitting in the departure lounge at the airport and showed Bermuda's post to my wife ( as in, see, I'm not so bad!) she looks at it and says "is he single?"

Guess I should ask her if that means she's interested in finding a man with a bigger "collection"!!

2 mid-line kits, 3 snares, maybe around 15 total cymbals. I only really like about 4 or 5 of the cymbals I have, though... I keep getting cheapo ZBT's and stuff thrown into deals when I bought other stuff.

Perhaps a result of not having a ton of cash around to buy stuff, I'm just not that much of a gear whore. I'm more apt to try different head combos and tuning than I am to buy another kit when looking for a sound. Snares, I've got my steel workhorse, my birch and a maple. I've been slowly seeking out great sounding hollow logo zil's and I love what I've found so far; it's the sound I've been digging lately.

Its not really hoarding unless they are haphazardly stacked in corners and stuff.





And there is approximately 35 snare drums.

John, I don't doubt that your accumulation is not by hard work and sweat and paid for solely by you. I hope I didn't come over in a negative light, that wasn't my intention...But it does seem we share the same passion for the instrument and the collections....LOL

I'm gradually beginning to let go of some Paistes, they'll be the first to go when it's time to purge. I suppose eventually they'll all have to go. It goes without saying that I won't be here to see that!

This is a methodical and genius approach. I need to do this with my drums also.

+1 on the taxes. I keep digital and hard copies of all my expenses related to music. So far more of a loss but hopefully will decrease my tax burden :)

This not fit my definition of hoarder. A hoarder would not know he/she has 791 cymbals! Pretty cool to combine a hobby and a profession- I would call that a passion!

I don't know how many I have, maybe 30- with several of those on the launching pad to find new owners. Hard to let them go. Maybe I am an embryonic hoarder.

I usually hit a satiety point with pasttimes. I am about there with drums, with a set in the basement, one in the garage, and one in storage for restoration. Maybe having 6 different Ludwig snares qualifies as a mini collection.

I prefer to avoid the term "hoarder," as I make it a point to reconnect with, and play all of my gear, rotating snares and cymbals as the mood strikes me, and the gig dictates:

Kits:

Tama Starclassic Bubinga Select
Pearl Reference Pure
DW Collectors Exotic (curly sycamore)
Tama Starclassic birch/bubinga (main gigging kit)

Snares (15)

Guru 7x14 In_Tense padauk stave (yes, the one from the video__thanks Andy!)
Joyful Noise copper, brass (TKO), and steambent reclaimed maple solid ply
DW Vault Edge, Collectors cherry, Top Edge exotic, and curly sycamore stave (dual badged with Gon Bops)
Brady wandoo stave
Premiere One Series
Tama Star walnut stave, Starclassic bubinga exotix, Starclassic bubinga select, and Starclassic nickel over brass
Pearl Reference Pure

Cymbals:

About 40. Like most, I'm fascinated how Bermuda accounts for his inventory. Most drum shops don't keep that much inventory.

Sounds like a good collection to me. You just need more cowbells :)

I've always liked the bits and pieces, and these days they're useful for home recording. I never aimed to have a collection - they slowly built up over many years and then a few years ago our singer found a bag of small percussions at a garage sale and that boosted things.

I only have three kits. A sense of proportion is achieved, IMO, if one compares the number of kits to the number of cats (in this case, four).

I am slowly photographing individual items for record on my thread. It takes a long time due to my being very busy. Plus new items add to the clutter all the time and in turn make it harder to access the older items.

There is a great deal more to record including 5 or 6 kits, approx' 30 snares, 10 surdos, 20+ cymbals, loads of percussion etc. The total # is unknown at this time. As an example, I reckon I own about 40 cowbells.

If I were to add books, well it'd just be ridiculous.

I don't consider myself a hoarder. Gear is used and rented out. I have a kit and a bunch of snares for hire in a shop, for example.

4 Acoustic Kits
28 Snares
Complete set of cymbals and hardware for each kit (roughly 30 cymbals total)
My house isn't exactly "large" and I have to get creative with storage. I'll admit, I have a thing for snares - that's my weakness.

As much as I would like more gear, (especially interacting with you folk), I have one kit, (two toms and bass), two snares (one good one), four cymbals, hardware for that stuff, a throne and a drum rug.

Now that I think of it, I'm not sure what I would do with more stuff...except be confused about what to take to shows. Simplicity works for me.

Snares (15)

Guru 7x14 In_Tense padauk stave (yes, the one from the video__thanks Andy!)
Joyful Noise copper, brass (TKO), and steambent reclaimed maple solid ply
DW Vault Edge, Collectors cherry, Top Edge exotic, and curly sycamore stave (dual badged with Gon Bops)
Brady wandoo stave
Premiere One Series
Tama Star walnut stave, Starclassic bubinga exotix, Starclassic bubinga select, and Starclassic nickel over brass
Pearl Reference Pure

Cymbals:

About 40. Like most, I'm fascinated how Bermuda accounts for his inventory. Most drum shops don't keep that much inventory.

We would all love to see a comparison video of all those nice snares or at least your comments to how they compare

My biggest question and issue is storage...
Any tips on nice ways to keep these things together?

I have 7 kits, 60+ cymbals, 10+ snares, orphan drums, percussion instruments, and a closet full of hardware.

So my questions are about light sources for all you vintage guys, and simple storage advice.

How do you guys keep the light out?
How do you store cymbals?
How do you store massive amounts of hardware?
I use a cymbal tree from a store plus cases and bags...

Hmm, I thought I had an extreme hoarding/gear mover thing going on, apparantly not comparing to some in this thread :). People I know do look at me weirdly when I tell them I got new drums on order though...

But in my 20 years of playing, I've owned 20 acustic drumkits, 3 digital drumsets, full cymbal setups from Meinl, Zildjian, Sabian and Paiste (too many to count specifically) and countless hardware (stands/racks).

At the moment I have 3 acustic kits, 1 digital kit, 3 snares, 18 cymbals, 2 hardware racks and a complete hardware set, 3 double pedals, 4 single pedals.
