The old style jazz kit.

24x14 bass (possibly two)
16x16 floor
18x16 floor
13x9 rack tom

White Marine pearl wrap. Flat base hardware. Probably Ludwig drums.
Cymbals probably 15" hats, 18 Medium-thin crash and some 21" ride and one of those swish things (china with rivets)

Something along the lines of a Krupa/Rich/Bellson/Shaughnessy kit

wow whered u find that list???

and i think they still sell giant beat crashes because they have them in the sam ash magazine


Pioneer Member
Something big. Lol. Im not sure of the exact specs, but something Neil Peart-ish or Tim Alexander- ish. I love Tims sets that hes had over the years. The Tamas are amazing, and the Pork Pies were awesome too.


Gold Member
I think it would have to be something like alex van halens drumset in jump or from before then, when he had the huge set and roto toms

Go on the Paiste web site and you will see that they have brought back the full line of Giant Beat Cymbals. You should be able to order them from a Paiste dealer.

It would really just be an extension of My Kit, since mapex sells an add-on for their M Birch series. In theory, if a friend came over (w/ a couple of cymbals) I could move the kit around and have 2 kits.

I am proud to say I got my ultimate drumset in October. Ludwig Maple Classics in the Green Sparkle finish. 14x26 BD, 10x14 TT, 16x16 FT, 16x18 FT, 61/2x14 model 402 snare and of course the Ludwig Speedking pedal. This is the kit I have always wanted since I was 8yrs old growing up in the 70's listening to Zeppelin! LONG LIVE BONHAM!
