good kit for blooze.
Can I get it reliced?
I'm sure the drummer who buys this will be running a little late to the gig. but don't worry his girlfriend will help him set up in under two hours.
Garish beyond belief, and totally unpractical. Believe me when I tell you all, every drum company brings out their wildest sets for NAMM. They all do it, pretty much, with the exception of DW, whose booth is unpretentious and very normal, and a few others. NAMM is the place to strut your stuff, and just about all the companies go overboard. Nobody actually buys drumsets like this in the real world unless they're very rich or very foolish.
I have pictures of sets I took at NAMM in '06 and '07 that would make your hair curl. You think that Gretsch set was large? You should see some of the drumkits I have seen in Anaheim.
To me it's not the size that's overboard, it's the chrome overload.
That's exactly why it's so COOL!
As a drummer, I find that kit morally obscene.
I had a wise teacher who was fond of saying that the better drum does more with less.
Well now, there's a nice practical little kit to play down at yer local pub...
Yeaup.. Most drummers I know love a big tone pallet. There is purpose. When I was being instructed almost all the teachers had huge kits. Looked like jungle gyms. I like the fact there are many drummers out there with big killer kits these days.
That Gretsch kit is cool. Flash some stage lighting on it and it will freaking gleam of color.
look, either you're serious about playing drums or you're not. i wouldn't be caught dead without my solid platinum drum set. its polished to a mirror shine so you can see how stupid you look for not having one. the roll cage makes it perfect for inverted underwater drum solos.
you do more with less because you are less. you can't handle this. smoke on the water and back in black almost play themselves. when people pay $4 at the door, its really just to watch me. you think these 48 year old divorcees got sitters for nothing? come on.
no doubt, dw's always small and tasteful...
seriously, who'd play a kit like that?
and of course,
fools, all of them!
It may be huge but it doesn't look like something H.R. Giger would design when he's really, really drunk like that Gretsch kit.
I like it.
You sure? here is a shot of a different yet same T.B. kit. LOL I think it's a message about all the same-o-square cages.
Btw, Might be one of those "new thing" coming.
It's been done before, somewhat.
Is there even an entrance to sit in some of these kits or does a crane need to lift you in and out?
Rip Glitter, is that you?
