Re: Mike Portnoy
on the subject of too large of a drumkit....if you see your kitas a full composite instrument..?
then nothing is too much. you wouldnt ask a guitarist to remove strings that aparticular song doesnt require would you??
i myself play a full octave shell kit and can appreciate where portneyis coming fromin his expression....
besides .... doesnt a five piece get a little boring on occasion..LOL
