My Future Drum Kit

Being a huge fan of Slipknot and Joey Jordison I modeled the basis of my future kit off of his “All Hope is Gone” tour kit. The kit would consist of Pearl Reference shells with jet black lacquers and black chrome hoops and lugs as well as a mix of Zildjian cymbals including K and K Custom, as well as A and A Custom and a few other series. The hardware would include Pearl TH2000 tom arms, Ch1000 cymbal arms, a CLH1000 closed hi- hat arm, an S2000c Eliminator snare stand, an H2000 Eliminator hi- hat stand, AX25 adapter clamps, PCX-100 and PCL-100 clamps and a pair of Demon Drive Eliminator pedals. This is all mounted on two Pearl ICON 503c drum racks conjoined by an RJ50 rack joint. Ideally the rack and hardware would be black chrome, but this would have to be custom made. The drums would consist of 4 rack toms (8×7, 10×8, 12×9, 14×10), 2 floor toms (16×16, 18×16), 2 bass drums (22×18), a 14×6.5 snare, a 20×14 gong bass, 4 Pearl rocket toms (6×12, 6×15, 6×18, 6×21), a 10×5 Pearl wood firecracker snare, a 14×14 floor tom and a set of Remo rotary toms (6″, 8″, 10″) with the stock pinstripe heads. All of the rack and floor toms, excluding the rotary toms, would have Remo emperor batter heads and Remo ambassador resonant heads. Both snares would have coated Remo emperor X batter heads with the gray center dot and hazy Remo ambassador resonant heads. The bass drums would have clear Remo powerstroke 3 batter heads and ebony powerstroke 3 resonant heads with a 5″ hole. Im not completely sure about the type of cymbals i want yet but i definitely know I want two 18″ crashes, two 16″ crashes, a pair of 14″ hats, another pair of 13″ hats, a 22″ ride, a 6″, 8″, 10″. and 12″ splash, a 14″, 16″, 18″, and 20″ china, a 9.5″ bell, a 17″ crash and a 19″ crash. All of the cymbals would be black with gold lettering, but this would also be pretty hard to have done.
