All of us afflicted with GAS have some form of this, attributing many various qualities to a drum set. Which is what makes multiple sets make sense to us, where others would think they're just drums, why do you need more? But those of us with GAS say, well this one is size abc, with shells made of def, and the era is ghi, and the brand is jkl, and so forth.QUESTION>>>If you had to " thin your personal drum herd" down to only 1 set...what would you keep and why?????

I only have one kit. It is a pulse percussion 4 piece in wine red. My parents bought it for me for Christmas back in 2000 when my band was in full swing. It was a huge upgrade from the 1st kit I owned which cost $50 used. It was a no name 5 piece with no bottom heads on the toms. Once I swapped out the heads on the pulse for aquarian and put an Evan's hd dry on the snare it had a beautiful warm tone. Once I got married and had kids my playing slowed down and just didn't have the funds or space for more than one kit. I have since put Evan's g2 coated on the toms and switched the stock snare for a pearl steel piccolo as a primary. I wont ever give these up as it was the one time I got affirmation from my folks that playing music wasn't a complete waste of time. Of course having children changed that and now I am mainly a hobbyist player, but I still love it.QUESTION>>>If you had to " thin your personal drum herd" down to only 1 set...what would you keep and why?????

Two is my minimum.I couldn’t do it. Three is a minimum for me. 1 at my practice space, 1 at home to play and 1 packed and ready for gigging.
It takes to long to get these bad boys set up just right to be breaking them down and moving them constantly.
Thank you. That kit was also recorded on my bands 2nd and final CD before we split up. And even though it's not a high end expensive kit you can definitely tell a difference in the sound quality from the 1st kit to the second.Which proves the old adage, its not about the amount of money you spend, its about what you can do with what you have.
Nice post Drm1979.
That's a beautiful kit. I played on a 70s Roger's kit once back when I was in high school. Loved the warm tone that they have.
were these rewrapped? they look killer!
