My little kit above, the Bumble Be Bop has 12 tom and 13 floor tom. 14 snare and 18 x 16 bass drum. May you could do a 13 or 14 floor

haha cool thread. i have a bit of a "mutt setup" as i call it. i have a gretsch catalina club jazz shell pack with mahogany shells and a white marine wrap, a steel pearl drumset timbale, an a maple pork pie 12x6 with wood hoops (pictured in my avatar) in a kind of "algae green" matte, and a gretsch full-range snare with a natural lacquer maple shell, mostly zildjian cymbals and an ufip crash

Tis decided- going 10/12/13 with 16x16 bass, possibly as a 1 up, 2 down- all Premier Royale/APK except the 10 which is a Mapex M Birch in Trans Black, the others are wrapped black and the 10x5 snare, with a 13x5 as an alternative if I use it. My spare cymbals- 14" Quickbeats, 17" A Custom (with cutout from a small crack) and my 20 K Custom ride, and the hardware from my old Tama Rockstar. Will post some pics over the next week or 2 as I put it together. the hardware from the 12 and 16 are in the kitchen at the moment in a bucket of dishwasher tablets and water!

I have to say I'm really enjoying this and my daughter has no idea!

Good stuff guys - the kits look great!

I like mixing and matching too - seems to be each kit has it's "best drum" so it makes sense to try them together and see if they're compatible.

This is what I used when I started out with the current band (now my kit's more conventional) - at the time I hadn't owned a kit for a decade so I added a few pieces to the the few bits of drum gear I still owned at the time

Is that box on the lower right of the pic some kind of foot stomp box? Or were you going bass-less at the time.
