    Build Your Dream Rig

    Let's say for the sake of argument, that you have an unlimited amount of money to spend on your rig (drums, guitar bass, piano, etc.) What products would you buy?

    Well, I've already got most of my dream rig down: Marshall JCM800 and a white Flying V

    Buuuuut I'd really like:
    an old Marshall plexi and a EVH 5150III 50W


    Charvel superstrat. Red, maybe one humbucker, and a black Floyd.
    A flying v painted like the Shark guitar.
    A Charvel Star guitar
    and a nice acoustic!

    I've got a Phase 90, but I'd love a delay too. Might as well throw in a flanger and an Ibanez tubescreamer. 10 band EQ would be nice to use as a boost.
    Ready, Eddie!

    Nice, Nick! But I would say "Octabons definitely a must!"

    I was going for the Cozy Powell look. I'm actually looking to get 26" kicks sometime.

    Gotta find a place for octabons. Not alot of room here.

    Yeah, finding enough room was always the hardest part...so no flaming gong.

    I'd like to get Alex's signature ride cymbal and that limited edition AVH snare that came out last year or couple years back(?).

    Nice! Although I'm a BIG Cozy's fan, I don't like big bass drums like the ones you suggested above.

    And I got some different cymbals in the last 02 years - 16', 17', 18' & 19' for crashes.
    I'm still looking for a nice splash with a great sound, but I got nothing that I'd consider as awesome so far .....

    Way to go, Nick!

    A Ludwig snare drum - that would be a dream come true to me.....
