Default The Penny Dreadnaught

Originally presented in the thread, "My Humble Stagestar", my Tama kit has since expanded beyond that description into the black, blue and copper beast that I have dubbed "The Penny Dreadnaught". Since graduating college in May of this year, I have been celebrating by adding the final touches to my kit now that I am able to play it whenever I want again.

And now for the roll call...

Drums (Tama):

14x5 1983 Swingstar Snare
13x5 Stagestar Snare
8x5.5 Imperialstar Rack Tom
10x8 Stagestar Rack Tom
12x8 Stagestar Rack Tom
14x12 Stagestar Floor Tom
18x14 Stagestar Bass (converted into Floor Tom)

Cymbals (Paiste):
20” 1985 2002 China Type
14” Alpha Boomer Hats
16” 1981 RUDE Crash/Ride

Custom Stack (10" PST 7 Splash top, 12" 302 Plus Splash bottom)

My 18" floor tom, made from my old Stagestar bass:

My custom splash stack, note the ten 1/2" holes drilled into the 302 Plus to prevent airlock:

The jewel of my drum collection, my 22” Sabian Neil Peart Limited Edition Steampunk Paragon Ride (#169 of only 300 made):
