Re: My new (to me) PDP M5 kit
If you do the last option, I have mine set up so my snare is in front of me. Toms are behind that so it makes like a triangle. Basically, the bass ceases to be the "front" of the set and those two toms+snare are. Once you think of it that way and adjust the throne, the hats should feel okay.
Awesome kit BTW!
Christopher Walken would be pleased.
