  1. Hybrid (mixed) kits?

    Don’t know about the uniqueness of it. It’s been done before. Diesel Dahl of Norwegian rockers TNT did it in the mid-eighties and I know that the drummer in one of the bands that played when I graduated had a similar setup aswell (two kicks and ddrum-pads). Those pads in the picture of Diesel are Tama Techstars. I love the 80’s but not all of it...
  2. Hybrid (mixed) kits?

    Awesome kit! Maybe I didn't explain properly what I'm looking for. What I meant was kits where the toms are digital and the kick(s), snare and cymbals are acoustic. Like the one in this picture.

  4. Hybrid (mixed) kits?

    Is there anyone here that rocks a hybrid kit? Or a mixed kit to be more specific. Acoustic bassdrums and digital toms. I'd love to see some pics.
