Good for you. Do you have any other recordings of your drumming, so i can see this experience play out? like any solo's or just heavier rock or classic rock stuff (zeppelin on your Bonzo kit?)

anyway sounds good, keltic, isn't really my music, but you guys are talented, (not many bands can have that said about them from someone who doesn't like there music)

I think Ive just had an epiphany...

My goal in life will be to top your arsenal!!!!!!!

....So i guess ill have to shoot for 12 kits, about 50 snare drums, and 100 cymbals for good measure. And of course a Paiste 80" gong...

Most of what I recorded in LA is on tape and I am computarded and don't know how to put it on a CD then on the web happen. Celtic isn't really my "thing" either but it is fun to try different stuff. The last CD I did with ARMINTA (12 song) has so harder rocking stuff. Also recorded another CD with them about two weeks ago. That has a nice little solo so in about three months, I will find out how to load it. I used the Brady kit on that song.

What's up Greg? Carl here from Noblesville. Keith Moon still sucks. LOL Hey, I was sitting around yesterday and came up with a guesstimate of what I have wrapped up in drums/percussion. Using my trusty calculator, I came up with a 17,000-18,000 figure. If you don't mind my asking, how much do you think you have wrapped up in drums/percussion? Kinda scary to think about it isn't it. I wonder if I'm in the top 5 on this board. If someone purchased one of those exclusive(30 only) Neil Peart kits they are getting ready to roll out that would be $30,000 right off the bat. Talk to you later.

What my stuff is worth and what I PAID are two very different numbers. My stuff is close to $65,000. Retail on the Brady alone is over $10K. I have deals with Pork Pie & Brady and get everything direct from them. The DW kit was payment for a recording session. (Very long, long story) I forgot that kit....add $8800.00

Greg, you monster... I wondered where you had wandered off to.

I was going to post a recent pic of my (one) Brady kit, but that now seems blase.

Give my best to Boris, the next time you speak with him.

What a decadant display of capitalism at it's best....!

"GM has announced he is adding a wing on to his house to display his ever-expanding drum collection. The local Guitar Center has written in protest that he has more in stock than they do.....film at 11"

That is just an amazing collection. It's like having a selection of the finest automobiles like Jay Leno.

I'd hate to pick favorites, but I think the Brady would win it for me. The blue piggy looks stunning as well.

Nice stuff, for one of more-than-modest income... ;)

Hey Greg, Isn't it an amazingly different reaction over here as opposed to...

For those who don't know, Greg was once on a kind of evil forum being drug into an unrelated argument, when the subject of his drums came up. For two days everybody on that forum called him the worst kind of liar there was, until the pics were uploaded. Then he became their god.

The war started was among the most celebrated in drum forum history, and actually got some people thinking about their behavior. But since the day his pics arrived, that particular forum has been much calmer than it once was.

The power of custom drums is an amazing thing.

Since GM has an acrylic pork pie that looks superb, he is the first forum member to be included in my synthetic tubs photo gallery. That blue kit looks great!

Ah! It all makes sense now Matt. I remember you messaging me about the pictures a little while ago to get them uploaded onto the other site, or something along those lines. I can see clearly now the rain has gone. I am, as always, increasingly envious of your rather, shall we say, superfluous collection of drums.

You can have it for 2750.00, that is half dealer cost and it is new. Will throw in 9000 cymbal boom with tom mount and Elite Air hard shell case with wheels for 24 kick.

Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. Holy smokes, I don't think I've seen any post with that many kits. Scared me even more when you said you have reserves. Just the ones in this post are enough for each day of the week. Nice kits, and ya short of the left tom over the bass drum and no gong drum that's pretty much a Neil Peart kit right there. Happy playing!

Neil and I have a deal. I won't ever play as good as he does, and he won't use MY set up. : ^ P

Thanks. That IS a big complimnt. When you play a larger kit most of the battle is comfort and not having to spend more energy. All my kits set up pretty much the same, and I add and subtract as needed.

A few questions;

Please can I have a drum kit?

Do you know how much you spent on all that?

Do you want to swap jobs? Im sure you would much rather wash pots for a living.
