Default How Many Drums do You Own?

Not drumsets, you're total quantity of individual drums all added up together.

Who's hauled home the most gear?

I have 9.

4 toms
3 snares
1 bass
1 djembe

One 4-piece Gretsch and one 6-piece Tama plus one Premier 2000 snare and one Supraphonic snare equals 12 drums and my father used to tell me I couldn't play them at the same time so why should I have them all?

I have 2 5-piece kits set up---the third snare, and the other 2 toms are orphans waiting until I find an orphan bass to complete a 4-piece kit.

Too many :)

1 - 7 piece Ddrum set (gig)
1 - 6 piece Sonor set (bandroom)
1 - 6 piece Premier

Add to that two extra snares brings the total to 21. Now are we counting rototoms and bongos? Don't even get me started on cymbals! Agree with everyone else, if it is a numbers game Bermuda wins.

Not much.

1 bass drum
1 tabla pair
1 cajon
1 kanjira
1 TSS

About 20 gazillion pads.

Hopefully 6 more before this school year is over.

And how many of those snare drums get played? I have 3 and my new favorite is my LM402 Supra I got from Larry. The other two are in their cases. :-(

Over the course of any given year they'll all get played, some more than others.

For decades I only had one snare. It's nice to finally be in a place where I can experiment with a variety of combinations. Options are a good thing.
