Man you can really rock out to Mustang Sally and Brown Eyed girl I bet. : )
Shells look fantastic. Were there many rejects? It can be hard to find the larger shells with no blems and those ALL look amazingly clean. Nice work...satin? Did you spray finish on?

Again, wow. I love the natural finish with the clear bass resos. Just curious, why do you have CS Dot heads on the 15 & 18 (i think) but Pinstripes on the 14 & 16?

Beautiful! And all square sizes or deeper. No mattresses stuffed into the bass drums. Must sound thunderous!

Only 18 drums? Are you serious? You skimped out.

Seriously though looks like a great kit. You might need a chiropractor for those extra floor toms, though.

Nice kit! a fine piece of craftsmanship!

I'm guessing you don't gig out too often, or you have a drum tech?

Yeah I would get lost in there. You should be proud. Now you should invest in mics to record everything, then the studio gear that you'll need to do so hehe. Nice work!

Whoa are those Beta 52s in the kicks? Nice, scratch those off the list lol.

Well, not that many kits have exclusively square sizes (although most kits have at least one square size tom for extra power). A big kit should have a big sound, so square sizes are fully appropriate. A short stack kit of this size would look a little silly.

Also, do you mean the kit makes you TINGLE? Tinkle means something else.

Great kit,it looks like so much fun, getting new heads for the whole thing would cost so much.
I can't see 3 bass drums, maybe I'm misreading the specs or not looking somewhere on the picture?
Or is the 20" by 20" a floor tom?

Yeah, it's pretty natural. For a while, I used to gig with actually nothing on the wood. It was bare wood.

Nice to see another big-kit enthusiast.

Do us a solid -- turns those mics up and give us a nice chromatic tom-roll for us!

...So telll the truth. The reason that your kit is so big is because you were having so much fun building it that you did not want to stop untill you ran out of sizes.

I have never been much of a big kit guy, but your kit has got to be the nicest one that I have seen on this board or any other.

I like the way that the octobans and rack toms form a semicircle, with the snare and the floors forming the other half of the circle. It looks like it would be pretty easy to get around. I have trouble getting around on a five piece kit.

Once again, very nice kit and a big salut for the work.

Barry

You need more cymbals. I would like to see the gong bass drum over the floor toms.
I have had two 18 piece kits....love them.

I like it with fewer cymbals. There are plenty of four-piece sets here with 20 cymbals, but it's refreshing to see a monster set like this with relatively few cymbals.

There are more drums than cymbals here and I can't think of another set anywhere that has more drums than cymbals. This set breaks the mold.
