    Default Show off your 1 up 1 down drum kit!

    There's a forum for 1 up 2 down, but not 1 up 1 down. I'm curious to see your set ups!

    My first attempt at building a 1up/1down kit. 13/16/22. This is the kit I usually gig with.


    My Export kit that I assembled from orphan shells to use as a backup. 12/16/22. I actually prefer the sound spread of the 12/16/22 over the 13/16/22.


    My winter project. 13/16/28 with 3ply Ludwig shells. Wish it was a 14/18/28, but oh well...


    I'm also working on an 8/13/16 jungle kit made from old Taiwan shells. This drum stuff is addicting.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    "I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham

    Here's what I'm gigging with right now. It's a tighter set up for me and I'm really digging the smaller toms. Inspired by none other than my metal headed bro, Marko.

    My standard set up since high school. Saw Bill Bruford playing King Crimson with that set up.If he could play Lark's Tongue era stuff on 4, what more did I need? Went home, ditched stuff, and never looked back.. Only the sizes and cymbals tend to vary....Gigging kit #1. '40's Radio King marble Ballroom set-
    Gig kit # 2. SSB Emerald Green Pearl Gretsch-
    Giging kit #3- Yamaha Manu Katche Hipgigs. Stripped, stained and refinished- Been playing a lot of jazz trio stuff, giving these a work out lately

    My most recent trade acquisition, and my favorite kit so far! 2005-06 Tama Superstars in Liquid Metal wrap. I've been trying to find a 14" floor tom to match to make it a 1 up 2 down, but not having much luck. For now, I'm going to have to "borrow" the 14" FT from my Silverstar kit.
