Default finally my kit is worth posting!

not too big, but itís how you use it that counts ;-)

and i have one more cymbal, a stack actually, thatís not in the pics...








specs:

cheap Pacific EZ Drums kit with the wraps taken off
22X16 kick
12X9 rack tom
13X10 rack tom(on my left in a floor tom position)
16X16 floor tom


14X7 Pacific Birch 805 snare

Remo heads(powerstroke 3 on kick and snare, pinstripes on toms, ambassadors on all resonant sides)
10" Paiste 502 splash
10"/12" stack(12" wuhan china with 10" Paiste 802 splash on top, both cracked)
14" Sabian B8 hi hats that iíve refinished into a brilliant finish
14" Zildjian Oriental China Trash
15" Paiste Rude hi hats(as X-Hats on my right side)
16" Sabian XS20 rock crash
18" Sabian B8 crash/ride, refinished to a brilliant finish
20" Pearl Wild 500 ride(basically a complete rip off of a Paiste Rude power ride) that iíve also refinished to brilliant because it was way nasty when i got it, with soda or beer stains and stuff on it...but i really want to darken it back up now...

a cheap cowbell i got on eBay

a mix of pacific, gibraltar, and sonor hardware

and a Tama Iron Cobra Powerglide double bass pedal, with Gibraltar wooden beater heads...

The tom to the left idea is a good one; I used to use that setup and only really stopped because of space constraints. The best of both Worlds with ride placement and yet allowing for an extra tom. It can also add some pretty interesting phrasing ideas - check out Bill Bruford for the logical conclusion to what you've done; he his kit set up half and half on either side of him and runs a remote hi hat in the centre, in front of his snare - the kit is entirely ambidextrous.

it actually ends up looking more like a traditional finish after just a couple of days, but just using a really heavy duty cymbal cleaner, or a good acid based product(i use lysol toilet bowl cleaner actually)...

just make sure to wash the cymbal off really good with soap and water afterwards, and get completely dry...

nice...i loved his playing with King Crimson, the way he kind of mixed auxillary percussion stuff with a traditional back beat...brilliant stuff!

Very nice looking kit. I am playing my kit set up the same way. It's been my favorite setup yet. It looks great!!

Well listen to the 1973 album 'Larks' Tongues in Aspic' and that's where he got the idea from in the first place - the auxillary percussion that is. They were running a dual-drummer setup and the other guy (Jamie Muir) was playing a ridiculous impromptu percussion setup - it radically changed the way Bruford played.
