wow, that gives you a great array of sizes, I'm interested to see what set-up(s) you come up with with all those drums.

but I will have
16x26 kick
14x18 kick
16x18 floor tom
16x16 floor tom
14x14 floor tom
6.5x14 snare
5x14 snare
9x13 rack tom
8x12 rack tom
also I will have my Acro and the tama metalworks

Im guessing you are going with the steve jordan style set up for the most part?
I really don't think i need anymore drums, i mean i may get some different snares in the future, i wouldn't mind a 16" tom/mini kick some days but still.
I really can't wait to see what kind of set ups you do.
What hardware/cymbals do you have?

I think it would be super sick to setup all the drums the 12 and 13 in the traditional location over the bass, then the 3 floor toms lined up as normal, then the 18 as the primary kick and the 26 off to the side with a slave.... that would be sick.

I personal can't really play 12 and 13 racktoms well, they are hard to get nice n comfy IMO. But with the 18" as the primary kick i think it could work well with 12" and 13".
Thats actually a really cool set up now that i think about it!
I don't understand how you would do the floor toms though?

I have been thinking more and more about putting my rack toms over my kick but i don't know, im too used with my offset set up, If i had a tiny kick maybe id do it, i always find it hard to get comfy over the kick but with a tiny kick id would work.

I thought you covered your kick mount, with the pearl plate thing :S
I would only do it if i had a small kick, 22" kicks and above are too uncomfy to mount toms off for me. I can't get them low enough, hence why i offset mine.

In my orchestra we have all 20" kicks (a few different kits) and i always mount the toms of the kick.
There was a second hand pearl masters in my local store with 18" kick 12" 13" 14" toms, i really liked it for sound but the finish was horrible and the price was still too much for me even though it was pre owned.

I think id maybe rather a 18" or 20" virgin kick with the toms mounted off stands but over the kick. It all depends on hardware mounting systems aswell.

I do have the BBC-1 masking plate on my kick, but it's not hard to put the bb3 back on, i just have to take off one of the kick heads, then removed the masking plate, then put the bb3 back on, the hardest part would be taking the head off and getting it back to sounding how it was... which really isn't that hard... just more laborious.

I forgot the masking plate came off so easily haha
My kick is probably the only drum im really good at consistently tuning, well my 14" tom aswell , but my two higher toms are harder, probably because i need new heads on my toms pretty badly now.
I wont be posting any videos until i get my new heads on and tuned up properly.

Lucky for some ¡This Cheese is Burning Me!
Im not really into my technology, so iphones don't really appeal to me but you are still lucky to be surprised with one! I had a samsung A800 up until like last year haha

Also Matt I am really liking the idea of that set up from earlier, i tweaked it a little for me:

18" by 14" virgin kick
12" by 8" rack tom
13" by 9" rack tom
16" by 14" floor tom
12" by 6" or 10" by 5.5" snare

17" or 12" hats
21" Ride
18" Crash

All completely different sizes than my current kit. If i ever got a second kit i'd get those specs, tiny punchy kick, bigger toms, small snare. Quite an unconventional mix but i think it would be awesome. I could get a comfy nice set up out of that, it would have to be a green kit though, why? because i like green.

Matt-Congrats on the iPhone I love mine. Also I like the idea with the 26" as the aux kick...however I don't have a double pedal

Dave-I don't know what I will be using the most but the SJ kit style will def. get used a lot. I have DW flat-based cymbal stands and my cymbals include:
24" K Light Ride
22" SR2 Thin w/ 4 rivets
22" Dream Bliss Crash/Ride
16" Dream Bliss Hats
Also I will probably never use it all set up at the same time

Haha yea matt, i can't decide if oversized or undersized works best so its either or. I think it would be a cool kit to own.

Thats cool SJ! Share some pics on your kits thread when you get it all set up!

Thats interesting how you have your slave pedal on the outside of your hats! I have never seen that before apart for jon dolymons kit (i think thats how you spell his name).
I take it you have pretty sweet left foot independence then ?
I also noticed you have JJ's tambourine placement, nice!

Your cowbell placement is similar to mine apart from my cowbell comes in from the far right of my floor tom as i play my cowbell on the top with the shoulder of my stick rather the ridge/rim of the bell, doesn't chew up my sticks as much that way.

I like the set up!

i like the new stuff SJ, the only thing i really feel like commenting on is the positioning of your jamblock, if i remember correctly the tone that it gives when struck just about anywhere but the lip of it isn't quite as full, i know if you adjust the PPS20 bracket just right, you can get it to strike the lip instead of somewhere in the middle... but then again, it's your kit, and you can do as you please.
