Any thoughts?

EDIT: I stand corrected, on closer analysis it appears to be a china. Same question though....

logic: when drums and cymbals are more flat...gravity works against you! when your strokes are moving horizontally though, gravity doesn't mess with your strokes. Of course, I completely ignore this fact in playing my own kit because, well, its so expensive to actually mount all your drums on a vertical plane and get that chair that leans you way back etc etc

but also, the position is really good for finger control...
