If I were to get a new kit, I may have one built, other than that, I'd like a Natural Maple Ludwig.
I've always loved that finish, but never had a kit in it.
2 bass drums, one center tom, and 3 floor toms. That would about do it.

3 floor toms? Whoa.... What's the thinking there? Tony Williams?

I'd love to have a Saturn kit in the Red/Blue sparkle from a few years ago. I haven't seen any for sale in a long time though.
Good taste! :)

You only need about half of those, right??

The only problem I have with Mapex kits (and really most companies these days), is that they don't offer 14" depth bass drums. I absolutely cannot do an 18" depth, and I really hesitate with 16" as well.

I like the look of deeper bass drums but I understand shallower is easier to setup on stage and transport. As far as pedal feel I can play any depth.
