Thanks for the kind words,

The Birdseye kit was and still is my dream kit. I was not gigging when I ordered it.

I few years later I started gigging fairly regularly, I did not want to trash it dragging it in and out of bars so I ordered the finish ply kit.

Both the DW kits have the same sizes

All fast toms 8", 10", 12", 14", 16"

18x22 kick

The Birdseye kit is all the standard DW stuff.

The Black Diamond kit is all VLT, reinforcing rings and the traditional bearing edges.

Snares:

Top row, left -> right

TAMA:

Early Artstar Birdseye Maple 5x14
Mid 80s Imperialstar 6 1/2 x 14
Mid 890 Superstar 8x14
90s limited edition rosewood piccolo 4x14

DW

Birdseye Maple Tobacco Burst 6x14 (matches kit)
Black Diamond Finish Ply 6x14 (matches kit)
Satin natural finish 5x14

Second Row:

Gretsch:

Mid 60s 5x14 WMP (this snare belonged to my wife's grandfather)
Mid 70s Chrome on Brass 6 1/2 x 14

Ludwig / WFL :

Mid 60s Supersensitive ( this was chrome but the chrome was badly pitted, I had it buffed off, I then painted with clear lacquer)

6 1/2 x 14 ( this originally was a 6 lug drum, someone peeled the wrap off of it. I got it in a pawn shop, Re drilled for 10 lugs, stained and lacquered. I had the bearing edges and snare bed done by Bill at Pork Pie and added die cast hoops)

Mid 60 5 x 14 Supraphonic, ( This was my first snare, I changed the p-83 to a p-85 when the p-83 fell apart, I added the die cast hoops)

10x14 marching snare( this is NOS, it is unplayed)

5 x 14 Duco WFL

5x14 WFL (all original except the top head)

6 1/2 x 14 WFL (with Zephyr lugs, all original except top head)


I may be off on the dates on a few of these

Very Nice Collection! I especially like the Black Diamond Finish. You use the term "All fast" to describe your toms, what does that mean?

Thanks for sharing your kits with us.

I believe he means DW's "FAST" depth sizes for toms, stands for Fundamentally Accurately Sized Toms or something, basically, they're shallower than standard tom depths.

Very nice looking drums, I'd defintiely love to have a play on all of those drums. That snare collection goes pretty deep.

that Roland TD20 is so amazing! I recently tried one of those at my local musicstore and it absolutely blew me away. I'm even thinking of buying electronic kit next year...

Thanks for the explanation, makes sense.

Oh man, I envy you! I wish I had toys like that! I'm happy with my Tama Superstar but I'd love some extra snaredrums to choose from for each song / gig... And a Roland TD20 is the best e-kit out there hands down. That birds-eye maple is beautiful! Unsure about the angles though, they seem ergonomic but they'll be easier to reach when they're positioned a little lower, aren't they?
But you're probably in a better position to judge that than I am.

...that's quite the toybox you have there.

Very nice collection of kits and snares. I let my snare collection go, as I tend to stick to my faves. Still, if I were to go snare crazy, I would probably do as you have done and try to find as many of the good old vintage American made snares as I could. I would bet that there is more of a story behind some of your snares.

Once again, that is a very nice collection.

My tom angles are almost, but not quite as steep. It all depends on preference. I notice he does have his floor toms angled just like his rack toms. I do that too, because I don't like a big drop-off in angle or height between the floor and rack toms. I think a set looks better and is easier to play when the floor and rack toms are angled and raised together. To me, toms is toms and I would no sooner have a big drop-off between ANY of my toms, wherever they are.

Very nice sets, well-maintained and lovingly cared for, with great hardware and cymbals. I lot of though obviously went into putting these together. I have to say, though, the setups are a bit conservative for my tastes. Aside from the cool snare collection, nothing really stands out as unique or custom.

Thank you everybody.

Its cool to find a place where your peers can appreciate each others gear

I set the kits up quickly to take the pictures,and used the same set of hardware for both. I do have a complete set of hardware for each. and this set of hardware had not been out of the cases in a year or so. I actually normally set the toms up as low as I can get them without hitting the bass drum (no tom rash allowed) and try to set up the lower mounted / floor toms so there us as little transition between all of the drums as possible. They are normally a little flatter too. I am fairly short 5,6" and like my stuff low.

If you look at the shot from behind on my V-drums that is pretty much how I set up the acoustic kits normally.

As for the snares, I have been collection since I was 16 I guess you could say since my Supraphonic was my first one and I still have it. There are so many great snares out there.When I find a great deal if I can afford it at the time I grab it. I try to stay away from non American snare but as you can see from the picture I have been on a TAMA kick lately, what can I say?

I actually am always adding a little at a time.

My latest addition is a vintage mid 80s TAMA Superstar kit(I told you I was on a TAMA kick). This was the kit I wanted when I was a kid but not afford. I saw a 22" bass drum on ebay for $75.00, I figured I could sell it and make a few bucks so I grabbed it, I then noticed that matching 15" tom so I figured what the heck I'll keep my eyes open and find a floor tom and I'll have a kit. So that same week I spot a 10" tom on ebay, I shoot the seller a note and ask him if he has any more drums and he show me this and tells me all the serial numbers match. So yes I could not resist, I also found the 6" and 8" matching concert toms. So now they are all apart, I am going to either repair the finish or completely refinish. I am going to try to restore it first and see how that goes. If it looks like new then that is what I will do, if not Ill sand and start over.

Ill try to get some pics of the shells up close, That pic was taken by the guy I bought them from, he put old English all over them to hide the scratches. I am annul about my gear and I knew I was going to restore them when I did it. I think I have around $1000.00 into them at this point. It will go up obviously when I restore them and put new heads on everything.

I am sure I'll have more into it then it will be worth but I knew that going in.

Very nice. Love the brown wood finish on the DW. Dare I ask if you had to pick just one of your snares...?

I think if I have to pick one snare it would be the Ludwig Supraphonic. although lately the 5 x 14 Birdseye TAMA Artstar is my current favorite.

The question about dividing my time. The wrapped kit is my gig kit, my Tobacco kit does not get near enough use. I plan on building a studio at some point that is sound proof, I will play it more then.

Please keep in mind I am 46 years old and have been collecting since I was 16. That Supraphonic was my first snare, I am the original owner of most of those cymbals and a majority of them are 25+ years old.


I firmly believe in buying pro level gear and I try never go get rid of it if I can avoid it.

Unfortunately I have sold a few sets I wish I had held on to but live and learn.
