Re: Post your DW KITBUILDER Dream Kit

My kit but In a different wood, and with a 20in bass drum.
Re: Post your DW KITBUILDER Dream Kit


I always wanted a snare smaller than my smallest tom, but I don't know how that 15 would work and that'd be alot of boom. I'd have to deaden the sound alot.

Haha huge huge bass!
Re: Post your DW KITBUILDER Dream Kit

Thanks Tuxido, It's my first mac so I'm a noob.

Drums: 1960's Ludwigs, 1975 Slingerland Snare (have it), Zebra wood stave (side snare) or 5x14 60's Supra.
Cymbals: Bosphorous: 15" New orleans hats, 24" new orleans ride, 18" Traditional Thin Crash, 20" Wide Ride, 20" Pang Thang, 12" Traditional Splash, and Finally 22 Antique flat ride.
Pretty close to getting the kit except cymbals. just have to get the 20" bass and the 16" floor and second snare. I will most likely keep it as the smaller set though.

So Close, yet So Far!

This is me when I win the lottery. Birch, in Ringo's finish. I'm thinking Sabians for the bronze.

By the way, the hi-hat on the right seems weird, but it's supposed to be a remote hat with a cable to a pedal over next to my main hi-hat, plus those auxiliary hats are supposed to be lower than the 3 cymbals it's overlapping. But I'm probably not gonna have a kit like this in forever anyways or atleast a long time.

More complete version, a la Nutha's designer:

that would satisfy me for now haha

Mine currently looks something like this:

With the new add-ons it would look like this and i also intend to use a variety of electronic drum trigger pads: a YAMAHA though not a DW. :)

note: sorry about mixing up the depthXdiameter in the toms.

i recently use (by order mid-tom(12"), hi-tom(10") and floor-tom(14")) i am going to add a 8" tom in between high and floor toms and a 16" floor tom after my actual 14" when upgrading this recent one with my dream kit.
