biggest drum kit ever

July 28th, 2009 by Kawika Heftel

How many drums do you REALLY need in a drumkit? I stumbled on the following picture today:

Terry Bozzio's Huge drumkit

This picture comes from Terry Bozzio’s website (click here for drum specs, click the image to go to Terry’s site).  This is officially the biggest drumkit I have ever seen!  How does one even play such a beast?  I also stumbled upon the following video today.  This is a timelapse video of what it takes to set up the kit.  I definitely admire the guy for being able to play so many drums, but there is no way I would be able to have the patience to setup that kind of a kit (to say nothing of the skill required to actually play it).

  1. hey there and thanks for the information – I have definately learned something new on here. I did however come across some technical difficulties with this blog, because I had to keep loading the site numerous times before I could get it to load properly. I was wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that I’m one to complain, but slow loading times times will quite often lower your position in google and will damage your quality score when advertising with Adwords. Anyhow I’m going to add this RSS to my email and will look out for more of your informative posts. Please post again sometime soon….

  2. Hey thanks for commenting! Lately I have noticed some people get 404s on that image of Terry Bozzio’s kit, but it always comes up for me… As far as I know my hosting is fine. If you have problems with my site again please let me know!

  5. A great post, thank you for putting it up! I’ve been learning drums now for possibly a couple of years. It’s just a magnificent instrument to have fun and is fun. I have got a remo drum set along with several zildjian cymbals that I ordered extremely cheap, just adore them! In any case, looking forward to your next post.
