This is the size of kit I use on most gigs: Basic 4 piece with my beloved Zildjians.

Here’s a 5.5 piece kit (.5 for the 10” snare) I use when the stage size allows. I get bored quickly so I like to have different snare sounds to pull from. This gives the pop tunes more variety.

Here’s the big one. I don’t often pull out the 6.5 piece except for those studio sessions where I know the engineer well and the music calls for it. It is fun, however, to watch the guys get flustered from the need for lots of microphones.
