well for starters the way I look at it if you don't use it or play it then it is too much. I was watchin a Terry Bozzio video a little while ago and I didn't see him use HALF the stuff he has. I think that is the point where it becomes TOO much. I don't think you can own too much but to me seeing some one try to play a kit that big is just retarted... Dave Weckl has always been my biggest influence and the thing I like about him and his kit is that he never forgets his job as a drummer and never lets his kit be soo big that is it distracting. Weckl uses every part of his kit and really shows him self to be a musician not just some quick cat who can blaze all over a monster kit.
I guess that was off topic, but to answer your question I don't think you can have too much stuff unless it gets in the way of your musicianship.
