I've been buying more motorcycle parts than drums lately but my latest about a week ago was a 14x6 Noble and Cooley Alloy Classic aluminum snare. I've always wanted a N&C drum of some sort and finally my desires came true. Got it for a great deal through Reverb.

Gotta love that cast aluminum sound. The only snare I’m sorry I sold was my Pearl Ultracast aluminum drum.

I forgot about a purchase I made prior to all the pandemic goings on . I purchased a DW LowPro travel kit in Black Diamond Pearl with the rolling suitcase that it fits into . Got to use it at a Big Band rehearsal and was surprised how nice the toms sound . Really nice and fat sounding . The bass drum is acceptable for what I need it for . I quickly sold the SNOM ( snare/Tom) as it is less than stellar to say the least .
I may plan to use it for some small room gigs triggering the bass drum with a Roland TM-1 and bass trigger . The kit with the mounting hardware weighs about 25 lbs all together .
I have always been on the lookout for portable kits as I do a lot of rehearsals and last minute small room gigs . The Whitney Nesting Penguin 16 is the best I have owned but this little kit is far better sounding than some others I have owned .

Mannnnnn - I love the idea of the portability of that. My new yamaha crosstown hardware - this little guy and a cymbal bag - whole set in one easy trip.

Does it REALLY sound ok? Could you actually gig with this - paired with something like a EAD10?

It is gig worthy for sure - the EAD 10 can mount on the bass drum for sure . Just use your own snare drum - the included snare/Tom just sucks

Had a Sublime E3 Maple last year. Hated the finish (Green stripe) but the kit was fantastic. Lovely attention to detail & flawless build quality :) If it had a different finish then I may have kept it.

Just bought a 5x14 Rogers Dynasonic shell and a 5.5x14 Tama King Beat Shell. I already have hardware to put them together. Got both of them for the low!

Well, my latest acquisitions are a beautiful N&C SS Walnut 7x14, and. Pfeifer Purple Heart 5.5x14. The walnut is stunning and sounds amazing. The Purple Heart hasn’t arrived yet, but I will post a review when it does. 26B8144E-EE80-4229-B4E0-18D88FF3297F.jpegE5269594-332B-48C5-AF8B-7D7ED7930118.jpeg

An online membership to P.A.S.

I always assumed it was strictly for legit guys. Later I learned they started including drumset players at their conventions so I though I'd check it out.

I couldn't help it.

I tried - but I couldn't (especially after getting that Gretsch Bronze Snare).

Today I pulled the trigger on a 5 piece Gretsch Brooklyn in Satin Black Metallic.

So I have a 10,12,16,22" coming in with bass drum mounted toms (I know...but I hate toms on stands haha)

A whole new set of Evans Heads (EC2s on top, G1s on bottom, EMAD for the bass drum)
One more of the Yamaha Cross Town Stands now that I know I'm committed to them haha
Some cases so it'll be nice and safe for a long time
and a GTS mount to replace the RIMS style mounts for the 10" and 12" tom - an idea I got thanks to @brentcn.

I'll make sure and post pics when it's all in and set up!!
