    This was my old kit at the old church. I cleaned the cymbals monthly (I found some kind of cream at the church in a small tube for the hand bells that worked great on brilliant cymbals), and wiped down the kit weekly, as well as the sound shields. I could not stand fingerprints on the sound shields.

    I make a point of making my setup clean & tidy. Hope it meets the standard.

    I'm not sure I fully understand this thread... what makes a set up "clean?" Litterally clean, or "clean" placement? And if the latter, what determines "clean" placement? Aesthetics? Ergonomics?

    I've always regarded "clean" (when it comes to kits) as a simplicity, not necessarily minimalist, but harmonious.

    I would agree with that statement. I think this is the definition of a clean setup.

    i'd say a "clean" kit is one setup with regards to ensuring all cymbals are close to the same level, angle, and usually with straight stands. Toms setup as of equal consistency. Symmetricalness would be a plus too. The kit would be also a "minimum" setup with a rack tom and 1-2 floors. Easy on the splashes and extensive percussion...

    Typically, you would compare a clean kit with Bonham's or Buddy's kit

    Yes. I must admit I wasn't thinking when I posted the pic of my old church kit. I kept it very clean, but that wasn't the point of the thread. I spent so much of my own money on that kit, and not having one now and seeing all the beauties in here...

    I think my mini setup meets the requirements!
