Hailukah, that has to be one of the most inventive things I have ever seen or heard of. Love it.

This is my "haul down a narrow flight of steep stairs to a room so small you have to go outside to change your mind" practice set up. It is a Sonor Froce 2001 with a 14"dia X 16" length floor tom/bass drum. I am going to get a 12" snare to go with it. Not something I'd use to gig out but for practicing in the guitar player's "dungeon o' practice" it works pretty well.

I once played a song (for some local internet-TV-stuff) with only a snare on the side and the floor as my bassdrum. I looked kinda like a monkey because of the hoody and my beard, and the way I sit. They (gitarist&vocalist) were was asked to play on a one day notice, and the 3 of us had never played together as a group. But still they wanted me to play, and this is how it turned out :p

Nice 80+ year old single-ply mahogany shell with the first-ever version of a sparkle wrap, which looks like a golden sand. Drummers always ask me about it at gigs because it sounds so amazing and looks so unique. Not to brag or anything... :D
Caddywumpus, you seem to know a lot about gear, are a seamlessly versatile musician, and apparently play out incessantly. Can you give us same names and dates? I looked on your public profile and there is no indication of the groups you play with. I just moved to the area and would like to glean from you.

Sorry about slow response ... thx Wonder1, love the cocktail kits.

Hailukah - great suitcase kit!

Noticing a few four-legged kick drums here. Good for lugging, a pain to set up.

I'm just about disqualified from my own thread now ... still have the RT, but it now includes a ride, a CR & a splash with both 12" and 8" toms (and still have the djembe). I'm morphing into neal Peart ... it's now three loads to the car!

What an inspiring thread! I'm gonna start looking for little drums to play. Does the Gretsch Catalina Jazz qualify?

It's qualifies, Bo, but doesn't impress as a minimalist statement :)

Nice sounding kit, tho.

Great kit there Wonder1! Would it be possible to let us know what your snare and kick drum are made of? I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like what you have there.

Thanks!

An eBay buy....it's my first real vintage kit. Had to use a screwdriver for the tension rods haha. The UK chrome is superior, there's no doubt about that

Mapex Saturn in Arctic White

18" floor tom converted to a bass, 14" floor, 10" tom, 13"x 6" snare.





Check out the 50 + year old Zildjian hats that I have had all my life, and we got them used. Sound just like my 14" Paragons.

Some of these are not tiny kits IMO ... small but not tiny ... A but not AA, if you like.

To qualify as tiny a kit should be unconventionally small rather than a class 4-piece.

How many kits do you have now, Bob?

I currently have 5 complete kits.
I am content with that amount for now.
I was thinking of selling the RT kit but Bo and some others talked sense into me and I didn't.

This a small kit with a minimum of stands. I could have easily removed the floor tom and two of the cymbals and taken a picture to have a "tiny" kit.

It's no Suitcase... that's for sure. But check out what a friend just got his dirty little hands on...

It's a Eucalypt and Birch shell, 2002 Premier. Kick is 18x10, 12 and 14 toms, and a 13 snare. Sounds great, and is awesome for the small club shows.

Excuse the dodgy pics.

Had to throw my cocktail kit into the ring! Made by Metropolitan Drum who is no longer in business. 14"x27" main drum, 10" Pearl snare, 6" Tom, and an 8" deep Tom.
All rims mounted. It's a fun little bit of kit!

When my SONOR Safari kit is more than I want to deal with ... I now have the "Back Porch" kit


My band has a gig in a place so small we have to move tables out of a corner to even set up drums, it's a weekly blues invitational jam,
and the kit needs to be very small with fast set-up and take-down. These reconfigured pieces from my full size Pearl kit work very well in their intended roll.
