Default Small bass kits (smaller than 20")

Lately, I have badly been wanting a yamaha manu katche hipgig.
sizes:
16 x 16 kick
10 x 7 tom
13 x 13 floor
12 x 5 snare

Who has a small kit like this?

Does anyone have one as their main set?

Do you like em? Hate em?

Id really like to see some home pictures of these small kits, something more than the catalogue pics.
I want to know more about these sets before I buy...

Thanks alot guys!
-Taylor

I have a Sonor jungle set. 16" bass drum 10" and 13" tom.
Wonderful set, I just used it recently for an audition, and it sets up in no time.
The guys I played with that day loved the sound.
The picture is older, it has new heads now.
I bought it for $200.00 on the local craigslist.
Had to do some small mods on it, but like I said it is incredible.
I also have mesh heads for the kit in case I need a practice
set one day.

My two-and-a-half year old son plays a First Act kit as his main kit.

16x10 kick
10x6 tom
13x10 floor tom
12x4 snare

He hasn't expressed any interest in getting a new kit, so I guess he likes it!

Hey Pasquini,
That is a sweet kit you got there! Looks really comfy. Plus I'm sure that McKenzie snare sounds great.

Well I play an 18" bass drum and I love it, but it's not very versatile. It has a lovely singing, resonant little punch to it, and I tune it quite high, but no self-respecting rock drummer would care for it at all. It's a small-combo jazz bass drum.

au contraire! I have an 18" kick as well, and it works very nicely for rock gigs. Tuned low and miked up (or not), it has a powerful punch to it. Kind of a compressed studio kick sound to it. Tuned high with coated ambassadors (non-ported resonant), it has a high singing jazz voice. A great versatile drum for a "self-respecting rock/jazz/latin/funk/you name it" drummer.

No rudeness intended. My apologies. I honestly didn't know that metal drummers would want to play a bass drum that small. Again I stand corrected.
And I very much admire and respect the technique that you metal guys bring to your music.

Default Re: Small bass kits (smaller than 20")

Here's my little ol' custom build job I just finished a few months ago. It's a Keller shell kit modeled somewhat after the Hipgig, but built to my specs with hardware that I find superior to Yamaha's. Sizes are 16x16, 10x6, 13x7, and 12x5 snare (which also turned out really well). I use it as a jazz kit obviously, but the bass could easily cut it in a more funk and possibly rock context, given proper heads and tuning.

Tom Noonan out of 36 crazyfists plays a really tiny kit. I saw them setting it up when i went to see them and the kick looks like it must be an 18 or something. He's a really big guy too so he does look slightly weird playing such a small kit i must say ;)

I've been playing a 16" bass drum as my main bass drum for almost a year now. I put it together myself using a Gretsch Catalina Birch floor tom. It's only 13" deep and it sounds fantastic!



I've been thinking about having Ludwig put together a 16" bass drum for me to match my bigger kit. Even though the Ludwig in only an 18", it doesn't sound as good as the 16".

You're good. Raymond Herrera plays 2 20" bass drums because they don't have much slap back and they give a good sound, I am also a big fan of 20s but for the moment I'm fine with my 18.

Default Re: Small bass kits (smaller than 20")

Im trying to find a cheap 16x16 or 18x16 8-lug floor tom on ebay. Im gonna get the tom, a pearl jungle gig, and a pearl bt3 tom mount and put it on the bottom of the drum.

The hardware will cost around $40. I would love to get an old ludwig 18x16 tom for around $60 before shipping...

Anyone looking to get rid of an old floor tom?

Some really cool small kits here.

All my drums are small sizes (8, 10, 12, 14 toms, 18 bass) but they are all square sizes, so they have the internal volume of larger drums. The snare is 13 by 4. Also, it seems like most kits with small sized drums are also smaller in terms of pieces, i.e., usually four pieces. I think this kit is unusual because it's a six piece, but with small sizes.

you know 18" kicks aren't too hard to come by and it'll save you the hassle of converting a floor tom into a bass drum.

where? I cant find a cheap one anywhere...
I was thinking about starting at the shell but i totalled it to cost around $460 so that out.
If i do the floor tom thing it should cost around $150

That set was around $2000, not including cymbals, snare stand, bass pedal, or throne. Everything else though was in that amount (all the hardware, shells, wrap (2 sheets at $300 a sheet), heads, etc. So, if youre looking for something more "quick and dirty" you could probably do something similar for $1000 or less. I just went for all the really high quality parts and all.

yeah i could but i would be wasting 1000 dollars. if i went custom id go all the way. there no sense in doin anything else...

and im not looking for a set that can be used in rock. i have that covered. im looking for something quieter for funk or jazz, or jazz/funk... like galactic, soulive, lettuce, mmw, hendrix, etc. Im doing a side band with my brother on guitar, bass, and keys. were gonna do mostly instrumental stuff... pretty much like a jazz band but with a solid beat. to me, most jazz has the bass as the main timekeeper, but id like to do something a little tighter. i heard a local band play giant steps at about 2/3 speed with what sounded like a solid 4-4 beat, and electric bass. It made me weak in the knees. i was thinking, i wanna do that!

Yeah, that's what I figured, which is whyI went all the way. I also forgot that the $2000 included a set of cases (probably around $200, if I remember right). I have everything and it's cost written in an Excel spreadsheet and I can email it to you if you'd like it. This sounds like it could be what you're looking for for that type of music.

Didn't 18" bass drums become popular with small-combo jazz drummers in the 50s because they were easier to fit into the back seats of New York City taxis?

Yeah, I've looked at those, but I didn't trust the shell construction. I couldn't see how it worked either... Here are some pics of the nesting kit in action. It works exactly like the yamaha hipgig, only the hardware that latches the shells together is a lot better than the hipgig stuff (I've owned all of those kits as well). These drums are built for the workin' man, and they sound awesome. I've recorded in the studio with them as well.

Garvin, that is a really cool set. I would love to give that a try.

I think it would be neat to have a dwarf monster kit. None of the drums or cymbals would be bigger than 18 inches. You could have 18 and 16 bass drums, a 13 and auxiliary 10 inch snare, toms of 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, and 15 inches - an 11-piece set!

Yamaha makes great drums and I'm sure you will be happy.

I would like to see the closest thing to a dwarf monster kit on this forum (no drum over 18 inches, at least 8 pieces). Aside from mine, I can't think of one set here with an 18 bass drum that has more than four pieces, however. Is my kit the closet to a dwarf monster kit - it's only six pieces?

Default Re: Small bass kits (smaller than 20")

Designer 18" kick. I use it for playing rock and it is easy to transport for gigs. It is a bit on the heavy side.

...here is my small bass drum set up.



DW 18x16,15x13, 13x9, 14x6 edge snare. This kit sounds much bigger than the sizes would suggest, kind of ajazz kit on steroids. I am not sure which cymbals are in this photo. They are either Zildjian A 20" med ride, 14" new beat hats, 16" K dark crash, and 16" A med/thin crash, or Sabian 20" stage ride, 14" stage hats, 16' stage crash, and 18' legacy crash.
