Nice one, love the kit (lucky so 'n' so :p) The cymbals look quite interesting too, look like they're pretty dark sounding.

*drools a little*
Wow... very very nice kit... those DW's look tight!
I am also digging the right side remote hi-hat action... i have one too that I use for my primary hi-hat and love kits with them.
is that your ride to the left/above the right-side hat? (between the china and the other cymbal) Its an interesting placement.
Your cymbal angles seem a little extreme to me.. but i like mine almost level and people always think that's weird... but it's my philosophy that angled cymbals like that are harder to hit with the stick edge and hitting with the edge makes the cymbal resonate better... maybe i'm wrong on this...
I really like the way you have your rack set up... 2 racks and the one's arm is inverted back in like that to give you that tier of toms and stuff... very smart.

How long did the setup take?

Again... very nice... i'd love to have a kit that big and beautiful!

EDIT: You should label all the parts 1,2,3, etc. and write up all the specs... i'd love to see that list.

OK basic specs for the DW stuff are:

22" Bass drum
20" Bass drum
Toms in FAST sizes
8"rack
10"rack
12" rack
14"Floor
16"floor
18"floor
Piccolo toms
8"
10"
12"
6x12" snare

Radias are
20"flat ride ( in location you described)
18" crash
18"china
16" crash
10"splash
14" HiHats

2-9000 bass pedals
1 9000 hihat
1 9000 remote hat

2 full racks (DW) 1 half rack ( going underneath for picc toms)

extra stuff in photo
1983 Zildjian new beat hihats
1980s paiste 2000 splash 10"
1900s Zildjian K splash 8"
Sabian 6" splash

12x 5 Pork pie Lil Squeeler ( tuned higher than DW snare)

Ribbon crasher
LP Cyclops

i think that was it ?

for me cymbal angles are not too extreme...I am 6'4" and it's like sitting in a control panel back there.....if I get some actual playing photos I can post em....but honestly everything is really within very nice reach for me.

The radias are darker sounding....very definite quick sounding cymbals.Took around an hour to set it up.....and I was not rushed so I got to fool around with adjusting.....not a set up you would take to a club unless you had room and time but this was for my wife's party and I had plenty of time to dabble that morning.

Personally I love those tom sizes....very adaptable to a variety of styles....I have an old set with power toms which personally I hate....the FAST sizes are great and the maple shells are very warm sounding. I also am a big fan of smaller snares...that 6x12" is extremely versatile.

If it's outside your house, everything can stay on the rack, and you can take it outside with a few people, can't you??

Btw, inside your drum room the kit looks bigger, but it's beautiful though.

Exactly I was thinking the same thing too much work 4-piece is all for me but that would be a sweet kit too put in my dining or living room kinda like a wrap-around sofa.

Everyone always thinks that...but in reality you are better off taking stuff down to avoid dinging anything plus doorways are awkward to navigate with toms and cymbals on the arms. Thanks for the compliments!

I guess that's where racks and memory locks help out though... if you just pop your toms off the rack you can just slip them back into place once you get the rack set back up... This is also why i don't compact my boom stands unless i have to... I have also seen the tricks of marking on the gig rug and marking the stnads with a sharpie before tearing down.

Yep the rug is marked for all the footprints...and everything is memory locked etc. In reality you simply would not want to set up a kit this size in a hurry though unless you don't care about your drums. I usually take out my small 4 piece kit which is a beater for stuff like that. But really weight is not something that is bothersome at all....it is more of a time factor. In fact my old Remo drums are heavier by far than the DW's due to the Man made shell versus Maple shell.

Very nice. You can certainly see the Bozzio influence.

there is a reason for that....the mini Bozzio appearance I mean....;-)

But seriously, with all the combos I can have with this kit I can't see myself ever needing another kit again. I've played out and recorded with a 5 piece configuration...practiced on a 4 piece configuration...and for this special event played out with the full 12 piece + some extras. it's nice to have options.

Beautiful drums, but I have to agree that's waaaaaayyyy too much stuff to set up. I do a standing Thursday night jazz trio gig and I am always debating over whether to set up an extra ride cymbal. I'll take a 4-piece with two cymbals and a pair of hats any day of the week.

Nonetheless really nice drums.

OK well it's not about what kind of music "requires" the set up...it's do you want that stuff available actually. Most of the time when I play out I use an old 4 piece setup. This set I have used smaller configurations for various things like recording or even playing out ( in nicer venues). In this case this was a private party for my wife which was held at her parents home...so...it was not required...but the gear was already there ( we are just bought a new house and are moving) so...the answer...? Why not?

Believe me I am not a person who believes more is better...or less is better...it's all about what YOU want...that is the only thing that is important. Too many people on either side of this discussion tend to get snarky or bash about it ...which I think is really counter productive to be honest. I would never look down on someone with a samll kit...or a large kit...unless they can't play it...or don't actually attempt to use it.

In this case it was a matter of did I want to set it up? would I use it? Yes to both...and it was FUN....that is all that really matters.

Just wondering what the blue section is under the drum rug. It looks like a thin carpet. If it is, where did you find one that large?

Yep...it is a large blue carpet from Home Depot....the rug under the set is from another place...and I marked it which makes setting up pretty simple. The blue one is a rug my father in law picked up for the gig for pretty cheap.

Most likely: whatever type pleases him.

It is FUN to play behind a huge kit (not so fun to move around) and I would get one if I could. There is so much seriousness and brow-furrowing surrounding drumming that it is refreshing to me to see sets that have an abundance of drums and cymbals and look fun to play (at least by what I consider to be fun).

My only "complaint" is that with all the high cymbals, the audience cannot see the drummer well and the drummer is the most visually exciting person to see. For best stage presence, I believe anything that comes between your face and the audience should be avoided. Show yourself off more!

I do not believe less is more. Less is simply ... less.

So I asked.

OK cool.....there was some NP and Rush on this gig actually....and some calssic stuff which allowed the use of a bigger kit. At times I was playing different "zones" for some groove change ups ( high range side vs lower range side) to give tunes a different flavor. The Pork pie snare for instance is tuned up a good bit from the main snare....using the left bass instead of the right...etc. Sorry if I misread your comments.
