Lots of sweet sweet kits. What I have learned and surprised by reading this thread on and on was how many of you are playing newer companies and or boutique companies drums.

I had one of those practice pads years ago!!
Had that pad for as long as I can remember. I think it came along with my first kit. Thick rubber on one side, thin on then other, sandwiching a square of dense metal. (Yours like like that?). It bounces around a lot, but, then again, so do I.

yup, that was it! I liked that it fit in my stick bag.

Played my monthly brunch gig with my eclectic jam trio today (and thankful for the gig as so many are currently concealed) and while the room was the same the kit was different... I brought my Punkinater copper lacquered maple 12", 16" and 20" with a new 7X14" Tama Copper Starphonic and for the first time in this room, my Bosphorus cymbals... a good time was had by all!!!

This just remindes me that I think I prefer 20" base drums to my normal 18's I usually play in this room. Though the 16" might have been a little overpowering!

Nice setup Fat Drummer, but it makes me miss my old 20/12/16 kit. =(

The add-ons are almost ready. Probably this week.

12x7 tom and 15x10 custom “ballad” snare we gave the name “The Dark Beast” (yes in the badge inside) snare:

And a new kit in town.

This is a custom one-of Remo Gold Crown finished in the indestructible Tuff “E” Nuff finish, made for drum super group Slagerij van Kampen.

10x8, 12x8, 14x12, 16x14, 22x16.

It has a killer sound, super-wide tuning range and thus I’m still on the fence of keeping/selling:

Also a new snare in town (bought to flip as I already have a Jarrah Block from ‘91).

This is a new old stock 12x7 Sheoak Block model from ‘05:

Powerful extension at the electronic side with the HPD-20. The percussion model of the SX. Killer sounds, the option to upload sounds, midi through USB and DIN and the option to use it as a sound card for the computer.

This one even beats the sounds of the DTX Multi 12 and can even be used as a compact kit with a (kick) trigger input and hi-hat control input:

I do like the cut of that kit’s jib, brother.
Thanks sorta a mutt, 80's six ply Ludwig that I stained to somewhat match the factory 90's 4 ply super classic and the floor tom is a 2011 classic maple that was too "blue" and I added some turquoise finish to get it a little closer. It's a 10 foot kit...looks great from 10 feet away...and sounds great.

Some sweat equity and lots of soul.

Working on finally learning a piece I wrote for a Black Swamp Percussion book of percussion solos last year. 18" floor tom filling in as a bass drum, BSP Mercury Titanium snare drum, Pearl portable tumba on snare stand, LP bongos, three BSP wood blocks. (The piece also uses temple blocks, a couple of triangles, a couple of temple bowls, a marimba or other keyboard instrument and a loop pedal but not working on those sections quite yet!)
