Re: Kits that makes you drool!

I have a really nice 6 piece Pearl Session Select kit in Wine Red that I just picked up from C/List a short while ago. I now have it polished up to it's near original state and the tuning is dialed in perfectly for me. However, these are the drums that I want. If I could afford these I could honestly tell my wife "this is the last kit I'll ever buy. No really, I mean it!"

This is one of many!

If I could scrape up the $165,000 I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
One of 2 surviving (3 made) Gladstone kits. Carl Palmer owns one (Chet Falzerano owns the other). Palmer's kit is currently on the market and can be viewed on Steve Maxwell's website here for those interested:

Wow, that really is a piece of drumming history right there. I wonder if it will ever move a 165K.

You seem to have a lack of snare drum choice though.....

Pearl MCX with 20" bass drum in natural birdseye maple. Just like the one below.

And proud to say I've got one on order :)

Ok. That is a cool looking kit. But...where on earth did you find a black drum rack???

Sorry, I did not notice all the response's to my kit photo. Thanks much guys. I built the rack out of standard tube stock steel, I used Gibraltor connectors and powder coated everything black to match. The blue kit hardware is also blue powder over chrome. I still need to memory lock and mark all the rack settings, been taking me much longer to set up at gigs than it shouild. Always goes together just a little different. I will get a system in place soon.
