My current WIP, both in terms of construction and education. My cymbals are a bit different now than when I took this pic.

Woa... If I had a snare like that I could sleep with it next to my pillow. I bought a 14X10 shell off Ebay and now begins the painful process of picking out the right hardware for it.

You will love it when your done. I was not sure about it when I bought it, but when I set it up and played it I was amazed at the awesome low deep sound. I got really lucky as I paid $50 for it with a new head but I have replaced both snare drum top heads now with Aqarium ebony batter heads so all my drums have black heads....really finished the kit off. Good luck with your project, Im sure you will be happy.

I agree, thats one fine looking kit. The only thing you need is one more floor tom.

I guess you're slightly inspired by Mike Portnoy?
Your setup is quite similar to the left side of his double kits, and I love it!!

Thanks guys, yes that kit was definitely inspired by Portnoy! A lot has changed since then though.

I put this one together with a friend, he has a ridiculous amount of drums, so we had some fun with this.

The Green Mapex kit just qualifies I guess. The red PDP normally has a 3rd crash but is still just a 6pc.

I guess I don't consider either "monster" kits. They're just my instruments

I didn't think a 7 pc kit was a "Monster Kit", but, here's mine.

Here's my current set up (11 drums)





Here's my "Hawaiian Frankenstein" setup a while before the current setup (varied from 12 drums to 20 drums). It's 2 kits in one (like Mike Portnoy when he was with Dream Theater):



Here's my "Hawaiian Frankenstein Mk. III" set up a little after the Mk II setup (varied from 21 drums to 25 drums). Same concept as before but I added a 3rd (electronic/acoustic hybrid) kit:

Here's a vid explaining the Mk. II kit:

This kit is not my kit, but it belongs to a friend of mine, and I have the pleasure of playing it more times than any other kit I play. :P





Yes, I know, his toms don't all have the same heads. He couldn't get an 8" or an 18" Black Suede head at the time.

PDP X7 with a couple of Tama toms thrown in to fill things out:

What are those heads your using on the toms on the first set? I like the floggy look and would you recommend them for rock/metal? I like a low sounding tom.

sweet kits by the way

Thanks! The heads I was using are the Evans EC2 coated batter heads on all of the toms. I would definitely recommend them for rock/metal because they give the drums a deep/warm tone. I'm actually using the EC2 SST clears on the DWs and like them a bit more because they allow the drums to really sing.

Can't wait to see a series on that kit as it frolics in the water on a Mexican beach at sunset or stretched out seductively under a Hawaiian water fall.

You went through all that trouble to make two, oops rooms for your kit. The least I could do is give mine a nice perch for its pics. :)

I have finally made time to dig out some old pitures of my old "MONSTER" kit.

It was a 1992 Pearl World Series
