thats awesome with portnoys kits. but just to let u know he uses iron cobras not dw pedals

When He played the Purple Monster as a Main he used DW 5000 kickers, but now he uses Iron Cobras Rolling Glides with The Siamese Monster.

And The Purple Monster Setup isn't all right, he doesn't have 5 toms on top of the bassdrums, he has 4, 8", 10", 12", 14". ;)

loop woul you be able to re-upload the prgramm for me pleeease! :D

Unfortunately I don't have it on my PC, but I'm sure there is a member that has it and can upload it for us once again :)

PS - I'll try to find it on my own, too!


New member
does anyone have a link to the blueprint software? I have been using kitbuilder but it doesnt let you choose brands of cymbals and make it look real like these.


New member
This is my first time posting a picture so I hope it works. Im also new to this board so I wanna extend a hello to all the fellow drummers here. Here is my current and somewhat dream setups. Let me know what you think.



New member
most of them are built in the program.. are you using kitbuilder from the dw site or are you using the downloaded software offered through links on here?


New member
my guess is that some folks must be photoshopping in some of the more esoteric items, like the electronics stuff. They really should have included some E-drum stuff in the program!
I photoshopped my custom cymbal brandname onto my files since they weren't in there.

for the floor and other items, up top it says 'select item.'
the first pulldown box gives you the main categories; floor/toms/hardware etc.
then the next two specify details in that category.


New member
When i go on the DW kitbuilder, its just the regular graphics..

i downloaded somestuff before but i still havent got a clue what i am doing..can any1 help?!?
