Odd add ons or not much of a deal?


New member
I have a grestch USA custom kit, and wanted to get a couple of add on drums, but I am looking at getting brooklyns as the add ons- is this odd? am I being weird? They would all basically look identical. I'm interested in having an additional floor tom with a slightly lower pitch and sound.

Has anyone else done that?

If the finish is the same, or about the same, and the tone of the drum is going to be what you want/need, I say do it.
Nothing odd about using what is needed to get your job done.
Who's going to see a different badge?? Who would say anything? Like that would matter anyway, because if someone DID, they would be a giant douche not worthy of thinking about any comment they made.

Get what you want to hear.

My Black Glass kit has Classic Maple tom and bass drum sizes, and 2 of the main floor toms are Super Classic 4 ply. They sound awesome together.

Playing is for YOUR enjoyment, not someone else's eyes or opinion.

I recently bought and am using a 16x16 DW collectors maple floor tom in White Pearl (as my left-of-snare, side tom), with my 5-piece black diamond DW performance kit and it's great in every way - if it sounds good do it.
