Down the road, I found a pair of 8 and 10" concert toms, bought some midnight blue wrap from Tama, had the 14 and 15" concert toms converted to closed toms, and wrapped them all in midnight blue. I can't find any mics of the kit after all of those mods, but it was really looking closer to my "dream" kit after all of those changes, and a 2nd kick drum!
    Ah, the days of piecing together all sorts of drums, in my case colors and brands to emulate my early drum heroes and their massive kits! I think I got hooked on buying better equipment when I purchased my first Zildjian Cymbal (around 1980) which was a 20" medium ride! That was my turning point! All my money I made washing dishes went to drum equipment thereafter.

    This is what my first DW double pedal was like. You could attach any main pedal you like to the base plate. I think I had a Camco pedal or Ludwig pedal as the main. I remember the Tama King Beat pedal didn't attach as nicely, because it didn't have those thin bars at the bottom, to fit under the DW clamp.

    You definitely have a theme that pervades your kits through the ages. Certainly a man who knows what he wants.

    There is so much to unpack here, I don't know where to start. Very ZZ Top.

    ei guys- here's the kit that our management rented for my The Netherlands shows with The Flower Kings (plus my Oriollo snare and some of my cymbals)
    Basically a Tama Starclassic B/B kit 8",10",12",14",16", 20" kick.
    Sounded very good, that PowerSonic on the kitckit has worked good, even It's not really my favourite thing.

    Thank you man

    Yes, they are great! I've shared the stage with Jolly which honestly didn't heard about it, but they'r good- I will share a festival with Riverside on the next Cruise To The Edge, but there will be Yes, Marillio, Gong, Flying Colors, Steve Hackett, Simon Philips's Protocol, King's X...and many others! it will be a blast.
    Next december we will be out on tour again in Europe, Kayak will open acts.

    Everytime is something different, it really depends from who you would find at the custom offices. I know hundreds of stories of band that came from Europe with organized tour (with all the paper works done by management and labels) and they have been refused to enter in US, even pros.
