Biggest in sizes and/or the most drums or a combination of both. Wow impressive drums guys. For fun I put together some orphans - 26 Radio King bass, 13 Radio King ride tom and a 20 (18 deep) WFL floor tom. Absolutely fugly - the bass is a faded beat to crap white lacquer, the ride tom a faded wmp and the floor tom a faded silver sparkle. Blind folded they are beautiful. Post a few pics if time allows this weekend.

Early-mid 80s 9 piece. Too much to haul now, but luckily I had a roadie then...

Premier 6", 8", 10", 12" concert toms, 13", 14", 16" toms without resos (wtf was I thinking), 22" kick, Slingerland Buddy Rich 14"x6.5" snare. Looks tiny compared to the monster kits others have shown!

Oddly enough, the biggest set i have is a maxed-out Yamaha DtXtreme kit, with all inputs occupied...

... sitting behind me, in boxes

Yes I have a very expensive, 10,000 dollar anchor that just sits in the corner now. I used the SPD11 for percussion and other sounds, plus it gave me 4 more inputs to add more pads. I did use it for worship every Sunday for many years, so I guess I got pretty good use out of it.

Back in the 80s I had a set of white Ludwigs: 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15 racks, 16 fl, 22 kick, 14 snare. Early Sabian cymbals and a 14 MIJ steel snare converted to a timbale. A mark tree and agogo and cowbells rounded it out. Traded just the drums for a 5-string bass.
