Right on! About a year ago I was asked to sit in on an open mic night for a drummer who couldn't make it. Small kit, but he asked me not to change anything, so I didn't. Problem was his floor toms were about 4 inches lower then his snare. I thought of a lot of things to say to him, but concluded not to say anything. Always wondered if it was intentional. Playing soneone else's kit sucks.
