Thanks... Yeah, any talk of drum purchasing is met with a lot of scowling these days by my wife. I'm fine with it, and happy with my setup. I'm only 27, I've got some time to buy more drums eventually. I just hope my kids get lots of scholarships.

Sounds like my age and situation except I don't have kids yet, but like you I'm hoping that when I do, they all get scholarships :)

The Wife Factor is a biggie. A lot of time, wives are a hurdle to gear acquistion, lessons or anything that involves spending money.Sometimes a fast-moving "wife vortex" will open around a band member just as he is preparing to leave his house for practice, sucking him inside, and the rest of us nod gravely in understanding at his absence.

Just as often though, my wife will buy me a musical gift and she works hard to give me the time off to play.

I am getting married next month and my fiancée got me into drumming once she knew it was my 'childhood dream' (I'm only 22). She stimulates me to take my hour a day practice and tries to give me space in purchasing drum gear (wich can be hard when you're going to have a wedding). She even insisted that I put new drumheads and a throne on our wish-list for the wedding-gifts...

I truly think I am the most blessed man on earth

Ontopic: I still own my first kit, a '97 Tama Rockstar RS in Sugar White.

...Drums that I considered "mine", 8.

Hayman, Canwood, Canwood, deedub, deedub, deedub, deedub, deedub.

Over the years I have bought, fixed up, and sold too many drums to list off hand. If I ever go on a search and destroy mission through my old photo tubs, I could probably find a picture of nearly every drum and cymbal I have owned.

http://entertainment.webshots.com/al...nment&start=12

This should be a link to a webshot page that has some of the kits that I have owned, with the exception of the Champagne Sparkle Ludwigs, that belong to my brother.

Right now I have four complete deedub kits, plus my franken kit.

I keep telling myself that there will be no more drums for me, but then I also tell myself that I want to lose twenty pounds, and start jogging.

I had an old '60's era (Pearl white) Ludwig 4pc that I "worked off" working for a house painter
(I wish I had kept it).

Recently rediscovered music in '04 and bought a Gretsch Catalina Birch 5pc w/add on 16x16.
Traded in for a Gretsch "Catalina Club" 4pc (Pearl White).
Traded in for a Tama Stage Star Custom EFX (Pearl White).
(It's going on eBay soon)
Ordered another Gretsch, Catalina Maple 6pc (Deep Amber)
I also have a Roland TD-20s (Black) used for practice.

1.) '60's Ludwig (red sparkle)
2.) '60's Rogers (blue sparkle)
3.) '70's Premier (white)
4.) '80's Tama Superstar (brown laquer)

Don't have any of these kits now - currently shopping around and most likely will end up with either a Ludwig Classic Maple or Gretsch New Classic 4 piece.

Well lets see!
Early 1960's Ludwig silver sparkle
Mid 60's to early 70's - Gretsch Champagne sparkle - like this set also, bass drum was 20in too small.
Early 70's Rogers Holiday with swivamatic hardware - Blue Sparkle - loved this set
Early 80's Yamaha recording natual finish - still have them still like them and they still look new!
I have updated the hardware on a regular basis.

I am pretty anal about keeping my sets looking good.

Contemplating on getting Yamaha Maple custom set.

Default Re: how many kits have you owned?

I've been playing off and on for about 50 years. I haven't owned that many.

My first it was in 1963, a white marine pearl Lyra (Japaneese for "firewood") that I had untill the early 1980's. It was a pretty good old kit, though. I kept her in good condition.

The second I acquired in 1973, a new set of Zickos special orded straight from the factory (see avatar). It was stolen last November. :-(

My 3rd kit is a no name blue 3 pc I bought in the 90's for pit work so I wouldn't have to worry about leaving my good kit unatended in a theater. It doesnt sound bad, either.

My 4th kit is a Pearl Forum bought in the early 2000's from the want ads. It had a lot of cymbals to go with it. I paid $250 for it and didn't know a lot about drum kits at the time. I am currently giging with this one. It's not bad, has a good sound. I'm convenced the 9/10 of a good drum set is tuning.

And..........





then..........





there is the ..........




NEW ONE............




Stay tuned.






Soon, my pretty.

My first kit was a Mapex. Entry level, rather bad.
Now I'm playing on a Shine Select Custom. 100% maple, really like it.

Think I'll buy a Mapex Saturn after the summer. Or... make a little "club kit", kinda' like the one Benny Greb play sometimes. Snare (would be Benny Greb's signature snare, LOVE it, overpriced though), bass drum, maybe even a floor tom. Just a good ride (hehe, I'm thinking 'bout the Sand Ride) and a hi-hat.

In my 13 years of drumming, only two sets for me thus far.
  1. 1998ish - Yamaha Stage Custom with Yamaha Steel Snare and Zildjian ZBT cymbals. Originally bought as the five piece, later upgraded to an eight piece and upgraded the cymbals as well.
  2. 2010 - Yamaha Rock Tour, six piece with matching Rock Tour snare, and Zildjian A Custom cymbals.

Stage Custom pictured here as a six piece:



Rock Tour:





The Stage Custom served me well for a number of years; I actually brought them to church every Sunday before they bought their own. Then I went crazy and turned it in to an eight piece monster to play at home. Then for the longest time I was practicing at church, playing at church, and that was enough for me. Then when my brother and I started gigging around town I started itching for something new. The Stage Custom lives at his house now, and the Rock Tour goes on gigs and otherwise lives in my basement where our band practices.

At this point I don't see myself going more than ten years between drum sets ever again.

I'm not really one to trade out kits every few years.

Pearl Export, bought in 1988.
part of it was stolen in 1993. The rest I sold around 2002 or 2003.

Slingerland something, with Rodgers hardware. I bought it used in 1990 or so. I was convinced that all real pro's had two kits, so I needed a 2nd kit. I don't know why this one, because I really didn't like it, although it was handy have when the Pearl Export was stolen, so I could still make rehearsals and gigs. I sold it in 1995.

Premier Signia, purchased new in 93/94. Still have it.

DW Collectors, purchased used off of ebay in 2000/2001. Still have it.

I haven't bought a drum set in over 10 years.

I currently have 2 sets right now
Ludwig Legacy Classic Liverpool 4- 22/13/16 w/matching snare OBP.
Ludwig Element SE Citrus Mod wrap - 20/12/14 sold the matching snare ( I use a 5 x 14 Ludwig Black Beauty with this set).

Sets I have owned
5 Gretsch sets ( all Stop sign badge)- 3 WMP and 2 natural maple gloss lacquer
2 Yamaha Recording Custom 1- Cherywood lacquer and 1 apple sparkle fade lacquer.
2 Wells Custom Drums sets - 22/10/12/14 WMP with Black hardware - Club kit natural maple lacquer.

The Legacy Classics are my favourites, but I must admit I am very impressed with the Element SE kit - cherry/gum shells -well made and they sound fantastic.

I don't want to get into cymbals, as I don't have time to list them all. :)

I posted this once before, but here I go again. I'm actually missing two kits in this roll-up as I can't find any pictures of them.

I'm 44 years old and only on my second kit. (Snare drums are another story).

I'm going to tell my wife i'm way behind in the kit department and need to catch up!

One kit to my name. Tama Superstar 9 piece outfitted with Paiste 2oo2's and Sigs. Had to sell it to pay the rent. Saddest day of my life.
