At this point after owning a ton of different brands, something other than plywood. I feel like I can get a great sound from almost any manufacturers mid to top level kits (and a few companies low lines like Tama and Yamaha).

Only thing I’d be interested in playing would be something like a Trick 3mm aluminum kit, Oriollo spun thin aluminum, or Jenkins Martin fiberglass. Possibly a solid shelled or stave kit.

I would love a DW Collectors in Antique Ruby Oyster (look it up) 24x16 13x9 16x16 18x16. I am seriously considering getting a 2nd Concept Maple kit in the Rock shell pack (and adding an 18x16 floor tom) but it depends on if they introduce any new finishes this year that I like.

if we are dreaming…my choice for a softwood kit,​

Sugar Percussion Eric Valentine Signature Kit Alaskan Yellow Cedar​

would cost about $9000 CAN, so purely imaginary, but you asked..it would never leave the studio.

For hardwood kit, either a Tama Star Walnut or Bubinga or Yammy PHX, (Jatoba/Kapur/Maple)

New, as in I'm the first one to ever open the factory boxes: Tama Star Maple.

I have no need for a new drum set, but I often find myself dreaming about buying a new kit.

For me, if I were to buy a new set of drums, it would probably be a Gretsch Broadkaster in tangerine sparkle in a 20/12/14/16 set up.

What about you?
If you’re dreaming, why not a USA Custom?
