I have gigs with just a RhythmTech "Laptop" and Live shaker (and yes, I do endorse them) - surprising sound from just that. I add a cocktail kick sometimes or even just kick/snare.

For a full electric gig with very limited space, kick/snare/hat, but I use my old original 8 1/2" deep Yamaha RC snare from a small area of real estate on stage.

peace,

bb

Depends on the gig. It could be a snare and brushes, or just a shaker.
I don't know what I'm talking about!
