This is it.. I figure any scenario that gets you down to one is going to be either space or budget constrained or both.


The double pedal is because I'm slow as molasses in January, not for blast beats.

The trick is rehearsal/gig space other than the tiny house and being in enough bands to support all the sets.

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 !!! View attachment 568864
Funny you should bring up Tiny houses. Considering that option, as I write this.
As for your question, right now, it would be the Sonor kit, hands down.

I would keep my daVille walnut stave kit. It’s just a fantastic set of drums.

Downsized to 4 over the past 2 yrs. All 4 are worth keeping. 1950 WMP Radio King.....1968 Gretsch Prog Jazz RB....1966 Slingerland bop....and bought new 1984 Superstars.

Probably the Gretsch Aqua Satin Flame because I love playing it. Not in any rush to make a decision.

I only have one set. Gretsch USA custom. Basically a progressive jazz with an additional 10” rack tom. Good set to have if you only have one. Tunes high easily. Also tunes low easily, in case you want to play some…..hard rock.
