About the only variation I've seen is people moving the rack tom to the right, so it's close to the floor tom.
I would like to see a double-bass four-piece (one tom), none-up two-down, two-up none-down, and other variations. I've seen a few double-bass five-piece kits and they have a badass look to them.
...that is what I like about them.
With the exception of the lefty, any one of us could hop on any kit here and be comfortable on it. I have seen some incredible innovative set ups on this site five piece and larger. Most of them being a reflection of the drummers individual taste and style, a signiture if you will.
The four piece has always had that generic look to me, with the drummers playing being the signiture. Besides, I never tire of looking at photos of Wavelength's Khumus or Zambizi's Unix. I just wanted a handy album to keep them in one spot as I am tooo lazy to go and hunt for them.
