LOVE the finishI found12/14/18 Maple Custom absolute in a shop a few weeks ago. For under 1k and in pristine condition.

I added Crosstown Hardware and its a super gig friendly kit.
A pro kit where those baby kits can’t hold a candle too.
Much easier to transport than the big sizes yet can sound huge because of the build and the riser attatched to the kick.
So put out a search and you can find killer kits for great prices. Especially in these Covid days.
LOVE the finish
What I love about the older Vintage Natural, is that it turns into a goldish hue due to the microbacteria in the finish, just like the Vintage Brown finish.LOVE the finish
This is one of the coolest sets I've seen in a while, can't find Tony Verderosa series any more or a V wave (or a mini flat)...guessing that's a Engelhart giant hunk of metal there. What is your setup to trigger the effects pedals?I have the Yamaha Manu Katche Jr. (original version, 1 rack, 1 floor - Philippine Mahogany shells). Paid $415 delivered. The newest version has 2 rack toms .... and it uses an all Birch shell now.
Thanx. I love Pete's stuff. A very good drum brother of mine has the WHOLE Engelhart collection. So I have free use of it (it's in the family). But that item you see is a Morfbeats Mini Marvin. I've also added a Micro Marvin to the collection. I have a contact mic in that, which runs thru a Digitech Jamman (on the floor) ..... ant that in turn goes into the pedal board. Feedback/Dist., Reverb, Echo, Dig. Delay, Flanger, Phaser pedals pictured.This is one of the coolest sets I've seen in a while, can't find Tony Verderosa series any more or a V wave (or a mini flat)...guessing that's a Engelhart giant hunk of metal there.

Have you tried a 16" bass drum? I converted a tom and used it as a bass drum for about 2 days.As I'm getting older, the portability of my gear is becoming an issue. I already have a set of Tama Superstar classics (20, 12, 14) but would like to find something with a 16 inch kick. most of these kits seem to be a "you get what you pay for kinda deal" I'd like to find something thats very portable but with enough quality to gig with. any suggestions?
i have always been tempted to get one of these, just not sure of the sound of the bass and snare. i love the idea of just walking into a gig and dropping this thing down though.
I played standing up exclusively with one band for about a year and a different band for about another year. I'm a huge fan and proponent. I really like using a normal bass drum and normal snare drum on a tall concert stand.
