Where Black is the color, where None is the number
Well, I’ve got a Gretsch 6/8/10/12/13/14/15 rack, 14/15/16/18 floor, 18/20/22/23/26 waiting for wrap, and a Ludwig 10/12/13/14/15 rack, 14/15/16/18/20 floor, 17/18/20/22/24/26/28 bass kit stacked up. Both with a couple random snares, depending on mood when I order.

I could probably come up with a bigger kit then these, Buts at that point it’s just “bruh, why, bruh?”

1980 Tama Superstar in ‘super mahohany’

12x8
13x9
14x10
16x16
24x14

Played it with a 14x6.5 (not matching) snare, 16” hats, 20” on the left and two 22”s on the right.

Loved those Tamas. Ended up having to sell them after I got my Radio Kings. Wish I’d managed to keep both sets.

Ah yes... those wild and Crazy 80's!!! I bought my Tama Superstars in the late 70's by by collage they had morphed into this.... (yep, thats a Ludwig 24" I bought to round out the double kick set up)....

Then it started getting smaller again... sorta! I could do a whole thread on the life of this crazy kit and all the things it became in it's life! But definitely the largest kit I ever owned.
