Default “House" drum kits (kits supplied by the venue)


I used to tune into the Small's Jazz Club site and check out what was going on around the local NYC jazz scene....usually someone good on there! Anyway, they have a little, PINK (ugh!), Canopus kit that is the "house" kit. That kit must be put through the wringer on a regular basis with different drummers coming in and doing all kinds of tunings with it. On the other hand, the kit says in one place and doesn't get thrown into the back of a van the way most working drummers' kits maybe it's not that beat up. And just think of the drummers who have come in and played gigs on it! Apparently, the Canopus kit has held up for quite awhile!

I wonder how long a house kit stays around before it needs replacement.

Does a house kit such as the one from Smalls (or any famous/historic venue), end up having more resale value due to it being associated with many great players?

Does anyone else have any anecdotes regarding "house" kits?
