Re: Flattening toms?
I have a 20 inch kick now so i can get my toms lower and flatter. use mounts off my cymbal stand.
Id never go full flat to avoid rim shots.. but flatter helps me play faster, and if i can have them lower and closer to the height of my snare its easier for very fast rolls/fills.
id almost like to go to an 18 eventually because with 3 rack toms they are right over the kick so i end up tilting them towards me enough so im not hitting the rims.
I do sometimes sit a bit low though
