Most excessive drum kit

Postby Jackpot » Sun Feb 01, 2009 4:17 pm UTC

Who has it? In my mind, Terry Bozzio is probably the leader, followed closely by Rush's Neil Pert, Tool's Danny Carey, and Dream Theater's Mike Portnoy. have some videos.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=MGlKflP7ycE < Terry Bozzio with fantomas.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jKBLSkN2sRk < Rush, performing intrumental favourite YYZ

TOOL VIDEO HIGH (heh pun) ENOUGH QUALITY NOT FOUND.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=EkF4JD2rO3Q < Dream theater, with dark eternal night.

Pink Floyd's were usually pretty extravagant. Pulse is the only live stuff I've seen, but I'm pretty sure it's up there on the list considering that it's a full drum set plus the percussion 'room' thing, which is pretty awesome as well.

Carl Palmer's

Stainless steel with hunting scenes carved. 2 1/2 tons.
It also rotated and was the first electronic drumkit.

My vote goes to Nick Andopolis of the band Creation. It's fairly simple, as far as 29-piece kits go. But what makes it extravagant is that he really isn't that good.

(A short search couldn't come up with pictures, and I can't go to YouTube from this computer, so I can't make it really obvious that this is in reference to the TV show Freaks and Geeks.)
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
And some old pictures.

Is terry bozzio's drum kit even practical? That thing's just crazy. Although, in all honesty I would fucking love to have that thing. I wonder who tunes all those things.

Out of all the setups you listed, Portnoy's is the least practical. Bozzio mostly plays solo stuff, so he uses all the stuff, but portnoys isn't even possible to play it all without changing where you are sitting. It really cool to put bonham's setup and a modern prog metal setup together, but at least make it useable, like how peart does it.

his looks a lot more complicated than it is because of the really weird rack configuration.


Here is the perfect drumset though:

well, its gonna have some by the woodblock and tambourine, I just can't put them in because having them in the sved file crrashes the program (germans can make great cars but can't write a simple java script)

And I already have 3 pairs of hi hats there, and then two sets of trash hats. which is like having 5 hi-hats. And there are 2 snares. I don't think I could fit another one or ten in and make it comfortable.

hmm... thats about how wide anything more than a minimalist kit is. In fact, I'd have a hard time fitting my kit on a 8x8 riser.


I think 16 feet would be a bit more accurate.

ohh.... jesus, that is big....


That would probably be really cool to play. The best I've ever done was holding a 48" above my head while someone else plays it.


Even better when the stage is black, strobs go off to the hits on the drum, and the drum is lit up.

I've got the DVD of their world tour, the sections with that drum are bordering on hypnotic (and not only because of the homo-eroticism!). Highly recommended.
