My current set.  It's a mutt.  Plain old Ludwig Acrolite with a P85, 20x18 Mapex bass drum and an old mahogany 14x10 rack tom converted to a floor tom.  Ride is a Sabian HH 21" Raw Bell Dry Ride (my wonderful wife bought this for me), hats are a 14" UFIP Bravo top with a cut down 70s Zildjian A heavy crash bottom. 

This kit has been coming together for a long time, because I refuse to buy things new, when they can be had off Craigslist for a tenth of the price.  I've finally got what I want, now I just gotta strip and stain the floor tom to match the bass.  I'm kinda on the lookout for a black brass snare too.  Once I've got the floor tom done I'll take some prettier pictures, with a real camera.

Here's my current favorite setup:  Early 70's Ludwig Psychadelic Red 13", 16"' 22" and late 60's acrolite.  Accompanied by Istanbul Agop Signature 15" hats and 24" ride and 25th anniversary.

Yeah, the mod orange is my favorite color but getting harder (and more expensive) to find.

I came home yesterday to find my wife putting the finishing touches on refinishing my floor tom.  I think I'll keep her.

Hey gang,

Just got these off ebay last week --
Phattie kit 24x14 BD, 12x8 tom and 16x16 floor.... Made in 2001, they're in excellent shape... they were delivered last Friday AM and I played them that night and the above photo is from that Sat. afternoon.   They've since got brand new Evans G Plus coated heads w/clear G1 resonants...  Aquarian Super Kick I on the bass drum.    I love them, they sound soooo good.

Turns out they used to belong to Jeffrey 'Houseman' Clemens, G. Love & Special Sauce...   I was able to off-load a Gretsch Catalina Club Mod 4pc that I wasn't all that thrilled with to make room for the new additions!   Gotta Love ebay!!!

Peace,
Mike Noll

This is the Eames Kit I recently purchased. This one of a kind kit was hand crafted by Joe Mac at Eames from North American Birch with a satin oil finish. The drums were designed with unique sizes for portability...The bass is 9 ply 12x24", toms are 6ply 8x13" and 14x16" and have die-cast hoops. I was a little concerned that the very shallow bass would be wimpy, but the first time I put a pedal to it, that thought disappeared. It is an awesome kit. I think I will call it the "Portable Monster"

Here's my set. I did the custom finish myself. My brand new Pork Pie snare and gibraltar rack on there now! Since everyone is always confused, the silver drum off to the side is a timbale (I play ska, definitely necessary)
and my jazz set off in the corner.

Sure it will. You have to host your photo some place on the Internet (eg. Facebook, MySpace, PhotoBucket, etc.), the reference it here on the forum.
