Thanks! Yeah they're really 26's, i used to have 24's. Notice these also have supports inside the bass drums to keep them round with big toms mounted on them.

I love the sound of the 18" crash, but i've cracked 3 of them in the last 2 years. I've never cracked any of my other cymbals and i've had them all for about 10 years, just something about the 18 i guess. I seem to see a lot of them cracked on ebay also.

Well, i had to buy the kit in pieces. I first bought the 13, 18 and a 24 bass from someone locally. When i went to pick them up i saw these two 26 monsters in his basement, but he wasn't getting rid of them unless he found a yellow kit. Well, i was lucky because i had a yellow kit at home. We traded the bass' for the yellow straight up, and i later found the 12 and 10 on ebay. I think the 12 was $125 and i paid $250 for the 10. I think my total cost (including what i paid for the yellow kit) is about $1250.

I'm still looking for a 14x14 and 16x16 so if anyone knows of them PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know!

*DROOLS*

I'm a sucker for orange kits...Man I wish the new Tour Customs came with an orange finish option I would have jumped on them in a second!!!

You have a gorgeous kit there!!! Nice deep toms and that double bass must be shaking your house!!! Best of luck in finding everything else you need for it :D

Wow, now that's what a rock kit should look like! If I ever got the urge to play a large, loud set of drums, I'd want them to look like that.

How will you set them up if you do find a 14" floor? I presume the 16" and 18" will stay to the right of the bass drums and the 14" will go to the left of the hi-hat. Will you then mount the 13" alongside the 10 and 12"?

I'm still debating what to do with the 14. I'll either mount it on the left, or i may put it where the 16 is now and move the 16 back and the 18 to the left next to the 13. I dunno, i guess i'll try some different ideas when i get it. I really like the 10 and 12 mounted high though, they fit nicer between the 26's then the 12 and 13 did.
Thanks for all the compliments!

oh, and katman, the 14x14 is a rack tom for this kit, not a floor. I imagine it would be a pain to mount a drum that deep over a 26" kick though.

Wow, very cool! I want those kick drums!

I would use 13" and 14" (if you find it) rack toms between the bass drums and get rid of the 10" and 12" toms...
The only way for this kit.

NICE!

I liked that one lonely piece of Yamaha rack you used in the earlier pictures. A very creative use of gear to minimize the "noisiness" of the setup, but the modularity of yamaha's stands does the job well too.

I think if it were mine, I'd mount the 14x14 directly between the kicks and one smaller tom (probably the 10 and the 12) on either side of it. That way the depth wouldn't be an issue, and you could have 3 up front.

my first good kit was a 7 piece RTC. i was 18. it was blue. ahh, that's a beautiful kit. and i love the red. i unfortunately sold mine so i could buy a sweet 1978 bmw 320i that took left turns when the brake was applied.

Great kit all around!

5 stars!

Good luck finding the rest of what you want.

BTW....1 rack tom between the kicks is a really fun set-up.

You have enough drums to make different configs, so that's a bonus too.

ooooowwww, man my eyes hurt! (naw just joking). Great looking set up and the finish is certainly an eye catcher. Must be a blast to play. As for putting the 18 next to the 13 on the left, I wouldn't do it if you want to use a side snare. It would make the left side of the kit to much of a reach to play imo, especially for that one time you want to play the ride and the side snare at the same time/

I love symetry. 2 toms up, 2 down on each side.13 and 16 on one side, 14 and 18 on the other, then you could play 2 handed fills, one down each side. Definitely a rockin' drum set.
