I was thinking, "wow, amazing how much customization guitar players do, unlike drummers. After market guitar business must be bigger than after market auto parts".

That was my first thought... but then I thought a bit more about and realized, "hey JamesJM, rethink that... after market drum customization is just as big". laughing smiley

Personally I have done very little actual customization to my kits.... dampeners of various kinds about all... BUT... I do often add components to my kit. Wood blocks, triangles, etc. I have occasionally added a drum or two that doesn't match my kit because I like the sound I can get from them.

I have even mixed 'electronic' with 'acoustics' a few time but mostly when playing at home. At gigs I have done it but the setup is just too time consuming.

Only once have I set up all my drums... which is 3 kits, (including the electronics), plus some percussion pieces... but I soon realized I'm NOT Neil Peart and can barely handle 3 drums much less 25. laughing smiley
