I haven't let go of any cymbals in years... which is why I have so many.

All are players, some are rare and collectable as well, but I have one that's not in inventory - a Sabian Vault cymbal signed to me by Bob Zildjian.

I had some "KRUT" cymbals that came with my CB (Charles Bruno) 700's.
They sounded just like the name......
Krut.....:)

I keep most of them in wood 'racks' I made. Another 75 or so are offsite or not yet filed.

Sorry, but none of them are available as gifts or for sale.

I'm picturing a wine cellar like layout, only with cymbals. Is that correct? :)

Default Re: how many kits have you owned?

Let's see, my kits have been:

Late 80's
CB700 5 piece with camber cymbals, with Ludwig add-on toms that didn't match.
I added/upgraded cymbals to used sabian and zildjian stuff, no idea what those were.

Early to late 90's
Mapex Mars 5 piece, with Sabian B8 pro hats, ride and crash. All used stuff. This set eventually succumbed to the effects of neglect. I dragged this set all over the place usually in the back of my pickup, rain or shine. Stored it in barn at my parents, not the best place to store things. I pulled it out and jammed every so often, but when Before I purchased the following, I returned to determine its viability after several years of not touching them, they were beyond repair. Only thing salvagable were the shells themselves, not worth the effort.

2004/5
Yamaha DTXpressIII with 2 extra cymbal pads. This was my "getting back into it" purchase. Living in a townhouse, it was the obvious choice.
DDrum diablo punx with an add-on tom making it a six piece. All Sabian B8 cymbals.
I had never heard of DDrum accoustics, so I took a chance and bought these. These were bought to play with others, I had tried with the electronic set and a 120watt amp, but it just wasn't the same. I spent a lot of money on these, upgrading the hardware, heads, rims to 2.3 mm black chrome superhoops, but they just didn't do it for me.
I was eyeing a Zep set when I decided to buy accoustics, and didn't because of the price. I couldn't stand it anymore, so I bought what I really wanted...

2006 to present
Ludwig Classic Maple Zep set in purple sparkle, Paiste 2002, 15" sound edge hats, 24" ride, 18" and 20" medium crashes, and LP cowbell. I also have a World Max Blackhawg, 6.5X14 snare I bought during the DDrum era to replace the horrible stock snare. It is the only thing I kept from the previous set, except for my Pearl stands, I was really impressed with the sound and quality of it. I have Protection Racket bags for this set. It's my "keeper". Eventually added a wuhan 28" gong. I plan on buying a 16" medium crash one day, just to round the cymbals out, but I don't "need" it. Maybe some other percussion items later on.

I hope your an afficionado of cymbals with patina - I'd hate to be the guy who has to keep them all polished. :-)

Sweet! I remember trying to improvise a drum kit with a crappy snare, a practice pad, an overturned plastic wastebasket, and a lid from a pot...mounted on the tripod from a music stand, I think. I never thought of the cardboard bass drum. I just tapped my foot.

Beyond that, I'm on my third kit in 25 years or so:

CB700 5-piece
Tama Imperialstar 7-piece
Spaun 4-piece

I don't think I'll be buying another kit anytime soon. I'm quite happy with my current kit. Besides, it seems like I'm spending all my spare money on accessories lately like sticks, heads, drum bags, stick bag, cymbal bag, hardware bag, etc. That kind of stuff really adds up.

I've had 3

in order:

80's Rogers R360 5 piece
Roland TD-7 Turbo
2001 Pacific LX 6 piece

I had too many after-work beers to list my cymbal collection at the moment, but I can say I've never SOLD a cymbal. I have like 5 of everything... Just the way I like it.

I would like to see an itemized list of this 500 odd cymbal collection though... I'm sure I'd see a couple familiar ones in there...

Four.

1) Thunder 5pc - your quintessential mystery-meat beginner set with the good old-style tom arms way into the toms and bass drums; plenty of fittings that were missing screws directly from the factory, ply separation, bad bearing edges, etc. Sold many years ago.
2) Tama Starclassic Birch - still owned.
3) Taye GoKit - still own. Use for light schleppery and when I'm playing with some friends in OC and don't want to deal with the whole shebang.
4) Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz - recent acquisition. This kit is going to live at work so I can play it and whatever guests we have can play it, without me having the worry that someone's going to wreck it. (And it's actually surprisingly nice with good heads on.)

This year I'm saving up the pennies and going to go on a listening tour; I'd like to get another high-end kit (and may unload one of the others). I know most of the major kits; I still want to hear the DW Jazz series and a set of Ludwig Legacy Classics -- and if I can find another Craviotto to listen to, I'd love to. Don't know where I'll hear all these, though.

Cymbals -- no list available. Four cases or so of Paistes; I need to find a better storage solution.

I've had 4 kits over the years.

The first was a Rogers 3 piece, gold sparkle, bought used in 1967.

Next was a Ludwig 1964 4 piece white pearl: 20" bass, 10" tom, 14" floor, and a 5" wood snare. I bought that in 1969 and kept it until 1980.

In 1980 I bought a Rogers 5 piece used: Solid white with a chrome snare. I sold that on in 1984.

My current kit I bought new in 1990: a 5 piece Ludwig Super Classic, Charcoal Shadow finish. I really LIKE this kit! Looks great and sounds great!

1965 - Top left - That's me on my first kit - a Japanese kit of some kind - about $300 then. This is the only exsiting photo of me and those drums.

1972 - Top Right - Gretsch Satin Flame 5pc - the 2nd bass was added on for practice at that time - never giged with it. There are only two photos of these drums in existance.

2007 Middle photo - Photo taken just before this Christmas. That's me clowning around on my new, latest greatest retirement-gift-to-me. I Quit playing in 1976 until May 2007 when I ordered this 6pc Gretsch Renown Purewood African Mahogany shellpack. They're really nice and sound spectacular!

Bottom photo taken Jan 18th this year shows the ever-growing kit so far.

^^Sweet!^^ I love drumming-through-the-ages pictures like those. I especially like the 1969 photo.

Thanks.

I had to change (EDIT) that date it's 1972 not 1969.

It's amazing how times have changed. I have 1000 photos of my new kit, but back in the day - I didn't even own a camera and there were not that many people - at least in my hometown - that were taking photos let-alone video! That's too bad I think.

around 1993 or 1994
I got a Premier 60s kit. 20-12-16. Of course, the heads were METRIC!!! So normal heads did not fit the 16"ish sized tom. So I had to get a separate Kent 16" floor tom. The Premiers were kind of a blue/green sparkle. The Kent floor tom was red sparkle.

Around 1995 I got a Mapex kit. I bought it from a pre-existing giant double bass kit. It was 22-10-14, with a hanging 14. After a while I found a used Yamaha Birch 20" kick. I got that, expecting to put together a piece by piece Yamaha kit, but I just ran the 20-10-14 until...

1997 I got a 60s Rogers Holiday in Champagne Sparkle. 20-12-16. That kit was amazing, and I used and loved it until I realized that playing loud rock in stinky punk rock clubs would destroy it. Then I walked into the drum center of Indianapolis and found

1999
DW maple kit, recovered in white Satin flame. 14 x 20, 8x10, 12x14 floor. That kit was AMAZING. All my drum lust was gone. I used it non-stop until late 2002 when I quit the band in which I played drums. In 2004, with an impending marriage, immense debt, no band, andlack of rent, I sold the kit.

2008
I got my current kit, oh, a week ago.
Red sparkle Ludwig Birch Classic 16x 20, 8x10, 8x12, 14x14. The drummer for the band in which I play bass had an identical kit, minus the 8 x 10. I love it. In fact, I think I like the sound of it more than my DWs.

So, I need bags... and a wood snare.

Garvin !

Some serious buying and selling there.

Congrats on the fatherhood adventure.

My addiction is starting again - my children are grown and mostly left home now.

Happy drumming to you,

Cheers,


Kona
