Ok, My drums are a bit bland. The shells are blank, and I have alot of time & help to make my drums look pretty sick.

Anyway, I got a new custom kit. A bunch of blank bubinga (that's high end wood right there) shells from a supplier my friend has. I went all out on this one, 12 ply bubinga shells, 15 ply on kicks, (2) 24x24 kicks, 10x9, 12x11, 13x12, 16x16, 18x16. I was looking for something that stands out, something that makes the crowd say "wow!". This kit will be my new main kit. Money isn't an issue because i've been doing pretty well and my band & friends are pitching in (we helped our lead guitarist get a wicked custom guitar). And this is my 2nd custom kit, just blank shells. I'm hopefully going to get whatever hardware I need from Drumfoundry.com. And I have to say I'm excited as hell about this.

My minds pretty blank, and i'm welcome to wacky & werid ideas.

I'll keep a favorite list on this post once I get some replies.

Some favorites I already have is a snakeskin kit, but that's not too original. Also a diamond plate, like the ones on toolboxes and stuff.

EDIT: NO I WILL NOT BE GETTING RID OF MY LARS KIT

FAVORITES:
-Cracked Mirror
-Carbon Fiber
-Blood Splatter on white
-Spiked hoops/rims

I don't know anything about building/customizing drums, but I always thought a cracked mirror finish would be totally awesome, especially if it was reflective. Stage lights on it would be amazing.

EDIT: I know that's probably not possible to do at all, just sharing.

That would be cool, most of the time it is reflective so...

good idea, thanks.

I could do that, on the hoops (the shiny part on the edge of the drums where you tune them) would be like a dog collar spikes, that would be sick. Or like crown of thorns on the rims. But those aren't finishes, and I don't know how the hell i'd do that.

not an *actual* mirror, just like a high gloss silver finish or wrap with cracks in it. Not that hard.

A gold color similar to this bass pedal

Or paint it so it everything looks like trash cans & cardboard boxes.


A completely gold drum set? Hmm, might work.
Might be an eyesore though, sometimes.

People really couldn't tell the detail on that though. With all the lights it would just looking orange & yellow.

Maybe something like that? That looks pretty sick. Maybe instead of brown, like, a golden brownish thing?
