worst drum setup

every now and then while trawling ebay I see a drumset that has been setup by a obvious non drummer.

makes me laugh every time.

These are guys that come up to drummers in bars and say stuff like, "Man, you a great drummer, maaaaaaan. I had drums once... I never got fast like you, though man. I just never could get comfortable behind a kit. I set it up just like yours... I dunno."

HAA HAA HAA heh

As my earlier post in the 'Drums' section has indicated, I have been trolling around for a used maple kit and it's too bad I didn't see this thread earlier becuase I would have had some beauties to share with everyone.

I actually get angry when I see kits set up like this....but it's also funny as hell all at the same.

Thanks for starting this thread, great fun!!!

Another 1 from craigslist. I wonder if the seller is trying to figure out why his kit hasn't sold after 5 months of putting up the same ad. Where are the heads and hoops, man? lol Not even a base for the seat!

ah yes this thread still lives and breathes heh

Some VERY VERY strong contendors here;

Jax - OMG that tom position is a realy beauty

Megamat - you already noted the cymbals but what about about the half inch thick layer of dust on the kit - would it have killed the guy to dust a little before posting

CLASSIC STUFF guys keep it coming!!!

This one doesn't seem right to me either. There's something fishy going on with the splash over the set of toms above the 3rd kick drum.... i'm sure that would hit the tom rims when it got hit.

How about this one, which I spotted at a show in Beijing... you have to stand up to play the (2nd row) toms
