    The singer just needs to stand on top of wheel well cover in the spotlight, high above the rest.

    That is a great looking kit - I bet it was an inspired show. Do you have a thread with the kits specs?

    Man, that's a great looking kit. You really need to get that baby out more often!

    That's one of the challenges with owning a REALLY nice kit. We're afraid to gig with them.

    There's not ONE gig we play that I don't hear at least one comment about how much space my drums are taking up. S***'s getting tiresome, honestly. And that's with a 4-piece.

    It's a lot of work and fits in mama's minivan.

    Might need a "cocktail" kit for the smaller venues.
    Nice set up. I like the left side gong drum. I've never seen that before.

    I feel ya... 4-piece kit, 2 or 3 crashes, ride, and hihat. My one bass drum is a 20x16, so not overly deep or wide. Yet it's always "are you over/back as far as you can go?". These guys are in their 40s and 50s, and playing since they were kids, and yet they act like they have no idea how much space drums take up. What's even worse is when you play the same venue frequently, and they still ask every time. As if I've been keeping all kinds of extra space behind my drums for the last 9 years, and I've just been unwilling to move back. And if the stage is lacking width, I'll leave off the far right crash (player's right, far left in the photo). Seriously, what do they want? Here's the offending kit...

    I love me a Cadillac. This one in particular is stunning



    One day I might be lucky enough to custom order a Dean ML in left-hand to the same spec/finish as this Cadillac

    One of the things I love most about Deans are those headstocks! The later headstocks just don't cut it
