The Vistalite thread got me thinking. I would love to see all the kits with man size kick drums. You know, the ones that make the glasses fall off the tables. Something about a big kit makes me drool :happy2: I know Dave H. probably has us all beat but here's mine :icon_smile:

Just set both of these bad boys up in the Drumshed this afternoon---my 14/16/18/24 Probeats:

And, my Red Mahogany Classic six ply's, 15/16/18/26:

Here's a pic of my Accent Zep Set, 13/16/18/26, which I unloaded last spring:

I'm really grateful that I'm not gigging that red kit---nice drums, but good Lord---those things weigh a ton! I'm exhausted after hauling them around!
Nice stuff, guys. Gizmo, that Citrus Mod kit is, as the youngsters say, "Off the chain!"

My first kit bought with my own hard-earned in '82: Gretsch 24, 13, 14, 18, COB 14x5 ... added a 16 later. Lovin' the 24 with Aquarian Impact batter and original logo resonant (using the Pratt muffler and felt strip)
