...WoW.

Dad-n-Lad doing the dueling drummer thing.

Was there enough money left over to buy Mom a pair of earplugs?

Seriously, very nice kits you both have there, and it must be pretty cool to be able to get together and try to kick each others buts around the kits.

You are both very fortunate.

I love it that you have two different sizes for bassdrums. Do you have a double pedal attached to one and a single to another?

Very cool set. I like the contrast between the finish, which is something you'd expect to see on a vintage 4-piece, and the very modern monster kit size and range of your set. Despite the size of the set, you are easily visible and the audience likes to see the drummer. We're the most visually exciting person to watch but we're usually hiding behind a bunch of cymbals and drums. I also keep my kit low so the audience can see me.

Class A: Look more closely. I think he has two snares. A reminder to Big_Wes: Always post specs here. We come here for drum porn and we want specifics.

I really like how your bass drums are different sizes. If you have two that are exactly the same and tuned the same, what's the point? MIght as well play single bass and double pedal, unless you want double bass just for looks (I've heard of some drummers setting up two bass drums but only having a pedal on one).

The melodic possibilities must be great with two bass drums. You could view them as your bottom two toms, just played with the feet!

Do the different head styles (coated / clear) on your toms make a noticable difference in sound or texture?

Also, your dad looks kinda like Hugh Laurie

I'm not a big fan of double kick kits but having two different kick drums is cool!

That double kick in two sizes is a great idea. Imagine the variety of sounds.

Somewhere along reading this thread I lost the part where you said the model ? export?
