I'd like to see a picture with someone sitting behind that kit. Just to get some proportions. Geesh.

Someone's compensating!

I don't think I'll ever understand the thought process that makes people want to go so far over the top. I don't understand what they are trying to accomplish.

Is it novelty and they are going for a laugh...

Or are they serious in thinking this might catch on?

Or are they trying desperately to gain attention?

Find out the answers to these questions and more on our next episode of:

36" kick.


I'm having a hard time understanding you humans.

'May not ship to The Netherlands'

Too bad, I was just looking for a kit with a kick drum that could double as a trampoline...

I’m pretty sure the concert bass drum we had in college was a 36”. LOL It had calf heads on it, though.

I think you would have to trigger it or something.

He should have mounted the 15" rack tom on the kick drum.

I'm posting photos from the auction for posterity's sake. So years from now, when that eBay listing is long expired, future DWers can marvel at the lengths some people will go through to overcompensate for a lack of, shall we say, ability?

Excellent! It would go well with that 30" Ride Cymbal on the other thread.

Oh yeah I get the " inadequate" references- he "obviously" must have a little nose. Ringo envy. It's the worse case I've ever seen.

I'm not interested, but I think it has an exciting look to it.

Oh, come on, guys. He's not "compensating" for anything - he's just gone out on a limb to have some fun. It looks cool in a funky kind of way, and it is certainly not without precedent:

I see a slave pedal, but no snare stand. Go figure.

Maybe someone lives in that thing.

Those sets are beautiful, but represent a long gone and different era in percussion. Small bass drums weren't available in the early years and in the 30's and 40's, the bass drum was the heartbeat of the dance music and had to be heard, un-miked, in large dance halls.

No call for it today unless one likes the self-abuse that would be incurred lugging it around, hopefully in an SKB hardcase, just to drive home the stupidity of it.

I always link to this one, when big bass drums come up:

I think they look good, but I wouldn't want to have to cart one around.

As obnoxiously huge as it is, that kick sounds awesome. Made me feel like there is a train coming. Its just in your face, no trying to find it in the mix.

I respect his spectrum game tho. He goes to the other extreme with the pop corn snare....unless thats a regular sized snare that just looks tiny next to his "bass drum".
