I have a cool idea for a custom kit that looks like a guinness pint with a dark black/brown stain with a off white "head" stripe. brass hardware, tube lugs, gold harp badges. It would be keller vintage mahogany shells 3 ply with rings, in 24x14, 12x8, 14x14, 16x16.

I would only do it if guinness paid for the kit though. I'm not going to spend my own money to advertise for somebody else, but it would look really cool.

For cymbals I have more cymbals than stands but I would probably add a 21" zildjian A sweet ride in brilliant finish.

these are so nice I'd probably be allowed to keep them in the living room...
They are beautiful, I prefer the Walnut version though. I think ronnie vannucci and matt chamberlain play them. If they sound as nice as they look, WOW, I'd love to A-B them with a Brady...

I'm pretty lucky as I have a sonor 3007 kit now which is amazing, but the kit I would love to have is:

DW collectors series in a green glass finish
10" 12" toms
14" floor tom
20" bass drum

I'm not sure about the snare...maybe a walnut black panther...

and i'd love to have the 19" avedis zildjian beautiful, baby ride

Ddrum Dios or Diablo Punx layout.

or any DW or Truth kit, one up two down layout of 12" rack tom and 16" and 18" toms. 14"-6.5" brass snare (which i have in the form of a pearl sensitone) and 15"-5" Birch snare for a proper fat sound!

Cymbals would be:
Z3 14" Mastersounds or A Custom 14 or 15".
16" Z custom medium crash which i have
18" Z3 medium or rock crash which i'm getting.
20" A crash/ride or 21" A Sweet ride which i'm getting.
8" A custom splash
10" A fast splash
18" FX oriental china which i have
15" New Beats

If only... :(

I had a rehearsal last night and I gotta say that I don't think I've ever heard a kit with toms that sound quite as good as my Keller-shelled toms: 8x12 & 9x13 racks, 14x15 & 16x18 floors.

I wish I was as stoked on my 18x22 kick, but I'm not. This year, I'm hoping to replace it with a new 14x24 kick drum (probably a Ludwig Classic Maple, or maybe another Keller shell job). That should make it the dream kit for me.
