Easy, Tama's Granstar II. They don't make anymore. With birch shells. Use to play them wide open no muffleing. Did'nt need any. The sound just stop. Use to get a lot of complaments on the sound too. I switched to bass now.

Ask Butch Miles! I once saw him in a rehearsal walk over and take two cymbals off our drummers kit and told him, "you can have these back when I am gone" LMAO tooooo funny

I once had a old, old Gretch kit that was so ugly we had to shave it's- nevermind about that, but mic'd up (where it counts) with a set of new heads on it was one of the best sounding kits I've worked with. Versitile, too. Sounded great close mic'd or sparingly mic'd with ambient mic's and a kick mic in a live room. Wish I still had that one...

I think that DW are some of the best on the market right now. If you're on a budget, PDP (Dw's entry level).

I'm not a drummer, but I always thought Ayotte make the best drum kits. Am I misinformed?

I've only just begun to learn drums, but I've been playing guitar for close to twenty years. For my tastes, I really like the smaller Gretch maple kits. Bigger than a jazz kit but not as big as standard rock kits today. As the music gets heavier, the drums get bigger. I feel most big rock kits are too thumpy.
I'm not an expert, but opinons are like....

Here's another vote for DW. The main reason you don't see more drummers with them is they are damn expensive. Close behind would be Tama and Yamaha, maybe high-end Pearl.

I can make a set of cardboard boxes and pie pans sound good.
But, I love Alex Van Halen's kits from the 80's and Eric Carr's (R I P ) kits w/ KISS.
