You decided to downsize , maybe you decided to get a tiny house .
You absolutely only have room for one drum set which kit are you going to keep ?
I think I’d have to go with my smallest kit . Because I went really small on my tiny house … I can put this kit on my bicycle trailer and pedal to gigs !!!

I'd keep my PureCussions and my Neusonics and suffer the loss of space! Lol

I have one bop kit and one mini kit with 14" bass drum/snare that fits into one bag and goes into a cupboard. That latter one doesn't count ......

I've always wanted to set up all the gear l own and then pick the one l keep going back to. I am going to downsize soon so I eventually want to go to one kit. If I had to choose by tone it would be an old Jasper shell Gretsch. I like a big kit because of the colors and tuning, multiple snares, cymbals etc. I am at the age and point in my life where l want a smaller house. When l have a room l can no longer be mobile in because of gear, it's time to let go.

Ummmm…. I don’t like this question. I have way too many drums and definitely need to downsize. But in those, I have kits that my wife has surprised me with, etc. So it’s not easy.

At the moment my Signia and I are getting along quite nicely but is it THE one to keep? Can’t answer.

Next!

Right now ... this one.

Noble & Cooley Horizon
22,12,13,14f,16f

I had them build this one for me a few years ago for a film.
I have since really taken to it ... took some time to warm up to it, but I'm there.
It has a nice warmth ... very woody ... and an unbelievable presence.
It plays like an old vintage kit ... but with a more rounded and upfront tone.
There's a few more kits here, but this one is getting the most record time.
Surprising when considering the other kits available.

That’s a struggle. I have three (complete) sets at the moment and I love them all.
I have 3 sets I really love as well , and really thought I wasn’t going to buy another until that guy put a BDP Slingerland kit for sale in here .

So I actually have 4 ….
What the heck am I starting a thread like this for anyway ?????
