Overall dimensions
« on: November 16, 2011, 01:05:54 PM »
I'm seriously considering buying the MKII kit, but living in Japan, space is really at a premium in the houses.  Can anybody give me rather accurate overall dimensions for the kit.  The depth is probably most important and I need a figure that runs from the outer edge of the front-most cymbal to the back of the seat.  I'm going to buy a 12" and 14" tom, but they will be mounted on snare stands and thus can be moved when required.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's approximately 100 cm wide, 90 cm tall (+ cymbals) and no more than 80 cm deep.

@ GenuineHuman  Thanks much.  It might fit in my bedroom like I planned.  2Box gave me significantly larger dimensions and it had me worried.

You need a bit larger area to fit the seat and for cymbals that stick over the edge. In general you need an area of about 140cm (depth) x 160cm (width).

Won't work in the area I have then.  The solution is going to be a bit expensive....... sounds like it's time to put a sun (drum) room on the back of my house.
