Default My Tama monster

Someone asked me to introduce myself, by way of posting some pics of my drumkit. Here are a few pics of my Tama Monster:

It is a Tama Starclassic Maple, mounted on a DrumFrame.

The pics where made with my phone, so they are a bit fuzzy, but you'll get the idea ;)
When I took those pics I tested it I wanted the octobans to be in a row, instead of a group of 4, but after some tests, I decided to leave them in a group of 4 on one stand.

Sizes? hhmmm...
2 x 22x18 kicks
14x8 Tama Bubinga snaredrum
8x8, 10x9, 12x10, 14x11, 14x13 16x15 toms
a low-pitched set of octobans
20x14 gong drum
And a 'number two'-load of cymbals ;).













And here is a picture of my snare collection. I like to collect snaredrums ;)
I got some beauties in there! Shell material goes from: maple & birch to bamboo, bubinga, walnut, sapele, steel, brass, and alluminium.



Well, those where my pictures. cya!

Good to see you here on DW Collin. I love how your bassdrums float in mid-air. What's the system called that they hang on?

Beautiful kit! I am not a big fan of double bass kits but yours looks very cool and comfortable 'cause of the drumframe... Makes your bassdrums look like anti-aircraft artillery. ;)

I love your kit man. It looks like heaps of fun to play. How long does it take to set it up by your self? (When your roadies are on holiday). Tama Starclassics Rule!

Wow looks good mate. Funny enough you're not the first person on here with a drum frame. It's a very interesting sort of thing really.

CollinL, you're gonna make me cry. I sold my Tama Starclassic maple, in that color scheme, recently and have regretted it ever since.

Nice kit mate. Enjoy.

I'm really ussually not a fan of big kits but this thing is sick. Probably the nicest starclassic maple set I've seen too. Love the drumframe but since I don't play any big kits I don't think its unnecessary.
