You can build a large white double bass drum kit using any manufacturer's drums. Some have featured quite prominently here from time to time. Is there something special about this Lars Ulrich model other than his name is on it?

Hi mate- yeah thanks for the tips.

For starters I collect rare and unique metallica items. Im talking cliff burton autographs, stage used items, rare promo posters, etc.

This kit hits the heart- its lars in his best form- its when metallica ruled the world- to me its also the best looking piece of kit ever made. (obviously drums have come along way since)

I was going to buy a kit off someone that did what you have mentioned but when it came to it id rather spend the extra and get the real thing!

besides it being a metallica thing its also the only full signature kit Tama has ever done so its pretty rare!

Ah, ok, I get it. Your search is very specific from a collectors POV. Good luck :)

Rare, yes.

They were made for one year only, and they were a limited release.

When I worked at GC in San Francisco, we had one. I set it up and did a whole Lars display. . I forget the price tag, other than it was pricey. And then management moved it to one of the Los Angeles stores.

Color me crazy, but I like that kit. I also like a lot of Lars' drum tracks and the accent placement he utilizes

True according to that thread but when you are short and use deep toms, you have no choice. Those toms are huge.
and the overkill with the weighted cymbal stands and the smallish cymbals

I sat behind one of those kits when they were new, it was a display on the floor. Now I'm 6' tall, and felt like a munchkin behind the thing. Seriously, a 16" rack tom and 2 18" floors, the kit is ridiculously huge. I will say it does look pretty damn cool though.

I think it's an awesome looking kit. I see major dentage with those tom angles though.

That's my favorite of Lars' kits. Back when Tama made a mean looking drum kit. That kit was an Artstar II with black Granstar lugs. Certainly not my style now but I love it.

I too always wanted that kit and kinda settled for an 11 piece Imperialstar kit but it doesn't have those black Granstar lugs which look awesome. I am having a very hard time finding those telscoping cymbal stands and would pay big money for 5 or 6 of those. Good luck but anybody with that kit is going to want 5K plus I'm guessing.

BradtallicA:

I've seen those kits pop up on Ebay from time to time, but not in a while.
May want to keep en eye out.

If your interested I have the last pair of Lars' Signature Regal Tip drumsticks ever produced.
I worked for the company many years ago and found like 4-5 pair in the plant. I returned them all to Lars except 1 pair that I kept for myself ;)

They sit in my private collection, but I'd let'em go to the right buyer. PM me if your interested.

I saw this exact kit for sale on ebay (Australia) for sale a few months ago (some guy from Perth I think). From what I remember, only the snare drum wasn't the real deal.
Not much help I know but I did go through the completed listings to no avail (don't know if it sold or not).
I also love this kit and think it was one of his best- if we all band together across the world I'm sure we can find one dammit!!

I'd love one (but don't have space for another old car).

Keep It Simple and tamadrm have both posted things that make me think one of them may also be interested.

So that's one of us in Australia, on in the US and one in the UK. Are you prepared to cover the cost of shipping?

ETA: "bug eye"...that puts you somewhere in the US I think. We English speakers call 'em frog eye Sprites.

I have shipped kits similar in size to this and it isn't cheap. If the drums are nested inside each other it will cost about $620 for just the drums via UPS Ground. I bought a kit from a guy in Arizona and I had it shipped through a company called Pak-Mail who picked it up and packed it for the guy and that service cost me over $1300 just for shipping. No clue what the cost would be for international shipping

I'de like to through my hat in on this one. I would buy this kit in a heartbeat if given the opportunity and gladly pay the shipping. This is the most iconic kit ever in my opinion.

I remember the ad in modern drummer for the Signature kit/kits,as I recall there were two versions,the top of the line version like Lars played,and a version that was a little different,and much more affordable.Can't remember what the difference was,but I remember thinking it was cool that they offered a cheaper version for those who wanted a Lars Sig kit that could not afford the top of the line version,which as I remember was more expensive than an Artstar kit.

Definitely one of his better looking kits (and used on their tightest album IMO).
Loved the black & white contrast & homage to the "Power tom" era. Good luck finding one.
