I like all of them, I can't really decide, but for the sake of this poll, I have to go with the Thermo Gloss Natural Maple kit. I sounds very good.

I always dug the Amber Vistalite and was grinning like an idiot when I saw the BBC footage from the O2 and saw Bonham junior's homage kit. The apparently unloved stainless steel kit's in the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona (or at least it was in 2004 when I was last in that beautiful city).

When it comes to sound, the natural and green sparkle kits are the best.

That Green Sparkle kit had great sound! That whole European tour of 72'/73' had Bonham playing that kit. He was a madman during that tour.

I'm going with the green kit, probably because of the epic shows that it was used on more than the drums themselves, but it did sound awesome
