Default RCI Starfire Drum Kit 2009!!

Hello all!! Here is a picture of the kit I created for the Ct. Drumshow in April this year. The rack is made from Gibralter parts custom cut and it comes apart and is setup using different sections and memory clamps. All drums are acrylic made by RCI Starlite International. Total number of drums at this time is 38pcs. 8 bass drums,17 toms,7 snare drums, 4 sub woofers and 3 mini timbales. 10 Octobans are being made at this time for the drum kits debut at The Southern Drumshow at Nashville,TN. in July. This kit uses one drum stool to play from and you can play multiple drum sets within the whole kit or all at once. Enjoy!! JohnnyC RCI Artist Relations P.S. Yes I own this kit and it's insured for $60,000 dollars in home, on the road and at whatever venue we present it at. Thanks again!!

that's just a work of art. Great. Not so comfy to play maybe, but great to watch. Could you please upload a big picture of it (like 1680*1050), I want to put it on my desktop :-).

...that's a drum kit ?

I thought it was a chandelier.

Somewhere out there Terry Bozzio and Mike Portnoy are probably felling a little inadequate.

In terms of kits that DW members actually own, we had diosdude's monster ddrum kit, drumguy's TAMA SC, the pearl Export 360 degree kit and they were all pretty big. But i think this has to be at least the same size as all of those put together and to top it all off, it's Acrylic!

I don't believe you when you say you own this drumkit though.




















IT owns YOU!

I reckon most of you probably know this already but RCI make Ludwig's vistalite shells. In fact, RCI is kind of like the keller for acrylic shells. They even make shells for keller too. It's on their website and stuff.
