Phil Collins' black Gretsch USA concert tom kit. My original intention was to build a V-drum version, with Remo Mesh heads and a bevy of the revolutionary wireless "Versatriggers", made in Europe. Suffice it to safe, I enjoyed building the kit so much, that I ended up making it an all-acoustic version. The Versatriggers went back into the closet; Gone but not forgotten. As fate would have it, I had the last of my orphaned drum shells lying around; an 8", 10", 12" 13" and 18 leftovers from several aborted or cannibalized projects. As I considered what to do with them, I remembered the V-Drum project and thought perhaps I could reignite it. The shells were actually already black, in fact, they were going to be part of that original Gretsch kit, however they were either too small, or the wrong sizes. What if I made a another version of the Collins kit? I had an 18" x 16" shell, an old 20" x 14"; the 13" would replace the 15" he used and the shallower depth of the 12", 10" and 8" would make up the rest. The only thing I would need were the floor/concert toms. Instead of the 18" and 16", I'd use a 16" and 14". I managed to find two floor toms on ebay and reverb; a 16" x 14" and a 14" x 12", both by Sound Percussion. All I needed to do next was to fill the holes, re-wrap them and I'd have the complete set.
