Vintage - Ludwig standard or Premier 3ply mahagony, they are light even with standard diecast hoops. Everytime I lift my 22” Premier bass drum I smile at how big it looks and how light it is. Both not too expensive compared to vintage Gretsch kits.
Modern - Inde based on the weights people report here, those are really light.

Vintage MIJ's!

C'mon man, luan is super light! Buy a kit for 200 bucks, spend another 125 to get the edges re-done, and you'll have a killer lightweight kit that sounds great.

Yeah, I said it! :)

+1 on the Yamaha Tour Customs. I've owned INDe, Sakae Trilogy (for a minute) and Tour Customs, and they're all very comparable in weight. If I were to get another set based on weight savings, I'd likely go Tour Custom again. They look great and sound great.
