Default My Whitney Drums Nesting Penguin kit!!! =)

I just received an e-mail from JT Whitney with pictures of my brand SPANKING new Nesting Penguin kit from Whitney drums. It's a never-tried-before Walnut stain with woodhoops!
And I'm LOVING it!!! 10" x 7", 12" x 7", 15" x 11 and 18" x 16" + 13" x 5" snare.
And the best part - they all nest together inside the bassdrum! Woho! (two toms + snare inside the bassdrum)
I will post more pictures when I get it, but for now - enjoy:

Nice! Very classy-looking and probably the most gig-friendly 5-piece I've ever seen. Congrats!

According to JT Whitney himself, and other Whitney Drums players - about the same as a 22" bassdrum. Yes, you heard me! :)

That's nice! I remember you asking for help from graphic designers on what colour you wanted, I see you made a wonderful choice!
Can't wait to hear some sounds if you get the chance to record them.

Anyway i bet Leigh and Preston would like the whole "penguin" aspect eh jack? :p

If you look at the drums i suspect that's one of the reasons they're not built with any sticky out metal parts like normal drums.

That's nice :)
Do you have pics of the shell without the heads??
I would like to see how the shell is constructed without lugs

Slick, classy, well-made, virgin bass, exotic. Damn, what else could anyone ask for?

Since this is a portable set, I would like to geek out on some photos of it packed up. How many trips does it take to move this with your two hands?

Looks Great! I'm glad to learn that you got them. I really want a kit like that, but I just can't spring for them at the moment.

It took me about 15 seconds to realize that's a full-size kit. It looked like a miniature paperweight until I saw the Axis pedals. Very unique look!

Yea, The photos don't do the kit justice. I saw one in NYC about a year ago and it is a work of drum art! It is also a serious kit!

I've heard these kits, and they sound louder than their size, also. Beauty. Congrats.

How quickly does the bass head come off to get the tom inside?

It's a 'nesting' kit. They're made so that the toms and snare go inside each other, then into the kick, like those russian dolls. You can see a ridge just behind where the wood hoops connect to the kick. The whole head and hoops come off as one unit to get in each drum.

Very nice. I actually have one of his Sidekick kits due to me in about 2 weeks or so. I don't post here often but I plan on taking pictures of it packed and more detailed pictures of the actual shells sans heads, as well as audio.

http://whitneydrums.com/products/NestingPenguin.php

Mine will be in a Mahogany finish, no rack. The snare will be mounted off the hi-hat stand and the tom mounted off a DW Flush Base boom stand via Pacific clamps.

Trippy! Kind of like a seated cocktail kit.

Not to hijack, though on topic, for anyone who is interested in how these drums are made or sound, I posted my own thread with the new kit I just received.

Nice kit, I just placed an order yesterday for a Nesting Penguin 16 kit from Whitney Drums. I am quite excited to get this. I do a lot of last minute rehearsals and gigs and having a great sounding very portable kit is a real plus. I currently have a Yamaha Hip Gig ( which is for sale if anyone is interested hint hint) and the fact that the Whitney is lighter in weight was a plus for me. I ordered my kit with the Walnut stain and wood hoops too.

I am also seriously considering to get one of these with a 16" kick.

Treehouse Drums also makes one with a 16" - in some way better looking, but also more traditional design.

I currently own a Yamaha Hip Gig kit and it sounds great, but when nested it is pretty heavy. The Whitney kit nested weighs less than 30 lbs and sounds great, a superb kit for gigging and rehearsals.
