Re: !Your Dream Drum Set!

My dream kit will be bubinga stave shells with die cast hoops, tube lugs, and clear heads to show the wood on the inside!
10 x 12 and 11 x 13 mounted toms, 16 x 16 floor tom, 14 x 22 bass, and 6-1/2 x 14 snare---like my current kit
Cymbals will be a mix of Zildjian and Sabian
Hardware will be the sturdiest I can find and include the least number of stands possible!
I want to pack a lot of punch into a small package!
Maybe a brass piccolo snare for a little extra pop!

Re: !Your Dream Drum Set!

One of everything, so I can pick and choose the setup for each gig or session that I do.

Seriously, though, the kit I have is the closest I have come to my dream setup.
It's a late 80s Yamaha Recording Custom.
20x16" kick, 8", 10" and 12" rack toms, 14 and 16" floor toms. I have a few different snare drums to use as well.

The reason I call it my dream kit is because it's so versatile. I have done many different gigs on it, from jazz to rock to country and just about everything else. It's all in the tuning...
