Ok, well, I was able to squeeze way more cymbals than drums shells anyway on my 7x5" rug and it was supposed to be a drums kit that our previous drummer had left to me to continue to practice the time to find a new drummer. That was 2 years ago, well, a bit more, November 2018 if I recall..But I bought the kit so, "Wifey" has noticed some "Changes" since the day the it came with 3 cymbals and a hat but....Ok, I'm sure she knows I bought "some" but at least, I have no more room for any Cymbals which is good because it was a way for me to stop my GAS for it: you can put it on the kit, ok, you cannot anymore, stop it. And to have a very good answer when she tells me that "buying music stuff is done, especially since you cannot practice yet". Me, answering: "Or course Darling, where would you like me to put it anyway, there is no room!!!"

Haven't had time to set everything up properly, but here's something of a preview.

I "hot-rodded" some old PDP drums into something useable. The sizes here are: 5x6, 6.5x8, 7x10, 10x12, 13x15 and 16x18 with 14x20 and 18x26 bass drums.

There are others, but I'm waiting to finish a few more and get everything together in the jam space.

That’s a gorgeous finish, and the range of sizes your monster has, perfectly rounded the shape.

I have a soft spot for PdP, I loved my FS kit.

You say there’s a few more?

Thanks for posting!

Not sure this qualifies but I will play.
Ronz - I often look at this Frankenstein set up when I visit this thread.
I really do enjoy seeing this kit and could definitely work with this, if it were righty.

Do you still get behind this monster, or was it a trial creation?

How’d you like it?

(Love the Destroyer poster)

Monsters are mostly disparaged around here. I wouldn't be surprised if there were more lurking in the shadows, afraid to come out. Those torches and pitchforks can be intimidating.

That is extraordinarily intimidating with symmetrical ports and level racks, exactly how I like my women lol

After a long day I feel dead on my feet, but still have enough time for a jam session

Happy October everyone! ?
Do you have a monster haunting your basement/man cave/space?
Well show us proof you are tormented with drums, one caveat - it has to be 7 piece shells or more, of course Frankenstein’s can be monsters too!

Love the Glass. My first kit was a 5 piece red plexiglass like yours. Batter heads only, black dot. Awesome sound.

Ok, but a lot of people have seen it, it's more of a monster cymbals kit than drums kit, so, a rack to start with:

Then, the all drums kit with 3 top, 10x7, 12x9, 13x10, and a 16x16, Main Snare, Tama Star Reserve Maple 14x5, 2nd Snare, Tama Star Reserve Sendan 14x6.5:

And finally, last one, all kit, almost (Photo taken without the 3rd Snare and left hand side ride is now a Meiñl Foundry Reserve Ride 20" and the Sabian Grooves ride has moved to the 1 O'Clock position while the Sabian Artisan Light ride 20" is now on the left side of the Hihat (I will update when I will have the courage to go again on the seat with no one to help me maintenaning it without turning!!!!):

I might qualify again with one more shell as I plan to get a Walnut Share for Summit drums, 15x8 to be in the position of a second floor tom, between the 13" and the 16".

I mean, this looks okay…but have you ever considered adding more cymbals?

That looks like a powerful sounding monster - what’s your snare situation?

Love the Glass. My first kit was a 5 piece red plexiglass like yours. Batter heads only, black dot. Awesome sound.
Thanks Dave, I am a fan of the dots and will throw a cs dot on anything!

Your avatar displays a monster.
Is that yours?
