Re: Is it safe to play songs that require a double kick pedal with just a single pedal?

well with a song such as this

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

I'm very attached to the snare I made myself. the rest of the drums I would like to replace... with something I make myself.

I'm using the XLR inputs for:
snare top
snare bottom
overhead left
overhead right

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

@original question: Yes.

Matt Halpern gets along just fine with one floor tom.

Rings of Saturn gets along just fine with just a 10 and 12.

do what sounds good to you.
